‘Model’ Amber Rose, received a special invite to visit Ghana and host their annual Vodaphone O2O music concert earlier this week.
While there she visted a small village and spoke to a group of girls at an Islamic school stressing the importance of education and making smart decisions.
She was interviewd a short time later and had this to say:
“People have to understand that this is my first time in Africa. This is not my culture. I have never been here so if I said anything to hurt anyone’s feelings then I am really really sorry. I saw that a lot of people on twitter said ‘don’t just show the poverty, show the rich people’. But for me, the rich people aren’t doing anything for the little kids and the people that are living in poverty so I don’t want to go hang out with the rich people.
I wanted to see the kids in poverty. I grew up very poor. So I wanted to go see them, help them, talk to them and inspire them to let them know they could possibly be somebody great. They can be somebody great. So I want everyone in Ghana to know that I wasnâ€™t jus saying that ‘Ghana is a poor country and no one should ever come here.’ Anyone that I have spoken to about Ghana since I have been here, I have been saying that itâ€™s such an amazing place. And I’m sorry for not posting pictures of rich people, but it just wasn’t for me to do.”

I’m not gonna do what you all want me to do and say she’s dumb. I honestly don’t think she is. Actually, I think she’s quite shrewd. But I will say that she’s a horrible interview. She needs more people. It’s not even her fault really. Yeezy kept her silent for so long that poor thang can’t hold a serious convo. Womp, womp..
