How Amber Rose Really Feels When People Criticize Her for Being a Sexy Mom: ‘I Sleep Like a Baby at Night’
Have an opinion about Amber Rose‘s revealing wardrobe choices? Chances are she couldn’t care less.
A mom, social media siren and soon-to-be VH1 talk show host, Rose is known for posting sexy, sometimes NSFW, selfies for her 10 million plus followers on Instagram. And as she explains to PEOPLE in the latest issue, being mom to 3-year-old Sebastian is not going to change that.
“I’m his mother,” says Rose. “My son is not looking at me. Think about it, if you looked at your mom back in the day at Woodstock and she had on tiny little shorts and a midriff. You would say, ‘Wow, Mom, you look dope!’ ”

That’s exactly what she’s expecting from her son. “When he’s old enough, he’s not going to look back at an old picture and say ‘God, Mom, why were you dressing like a slut?’ He’s going to be like, ‘Wow, Mom, you were gorgeous and now you’re old!’ ”
A proponent of dressing however you want, whether you’re a mom or not, Rose launched her SlutWalk last year with the message that all women, despite their attire, deserve respect.
“I saw a picture of a girl that had on pasties and written on her chest it said, ‘I’m Still Not Asking For It,’ ” says Rose of where she drew her inspiration. “The point is you can wear whatever you want and it’s not an invitation.”
Rose, who recently showed her support for Kim Kardashian West‘s nude selfies, is in good company when it comes to unapologetically hot moms. Her best friend Blac Chyna — Rob Kardashian‘s newly pregnant–fiancée and mom to 3-year-old son King Cairo with ex Tyga — is a mainstay in her modern mommy group.

“We’re all these young, entrepreneurs and businesswomen,” says Rose. “We juggle all of that and really spend a lot of time with our boys. We’ll give each other advice and go to events together so we can figure out how to get the boys tired so they’ll go to bed at a reasonable hour.”
When it comes to the scrutiny she’s received online, “I don’t care what anybody says,” says Rose. “I sleep like a baby at night when I see comments like that. Everybody else can talk s—- but my son won’t.”
