In February 2015, Amber Rose announced the release of her upcoming tell-all book titled How to Be a Bad Bitch. As per The Hollywood Reporter, the book will come out Oct. 27 through Gallery Books and the cover will be shot by David LaChapelle. Today, the Philly native released the new cover to her book to the masses. One must question, is this book is a must read for the average hip-hop fan?
Over the past couple of years, we have gotten to known Amber Rose as a person for all of the wrong reasons. The media has shared in great detail her high profile relationships with musicians Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa. At the moment, she is in the midst of a battle with her ex-husband, rapper Wiz Khalifa, over custody of their son. Additionally, Rose has made waves for raising eyebrows at Tyga, the Compton rapper who has a relationship with the 17-year-old Kylie Jenner, half-sister-in-law of her ex, Kanye West.
While those are juicy storylines that many gossip magazines will eat up, I don’t know if those activities warrant a book. To her credit, Rose says the book will possess balance. During a sit down with XXL, rose spoke on the book saying ““It’s not [about] being a bitch at all or a mean person, it’s being super nice, compassionate, well-spoken, financially stable, learning from your mistakes in life and growing,” said Rose of the controversial title. “It’s definitely all the mistakes I’ve made in life; I do get very personal in my book. Just being on that path of being better.”
While Amber states the book is more of a self-help book for fans, many will be purchasing a copy to see is she spills the beans on intimate details in her relationships with Kanye and Wiz. Die hard hip-hop fans may be better served looking elsewhere in regards to reading content discussing the industry.
