“Kanye called me an incredible person and I take that as an apology. And if it was an apology, I forgive him for being an asshole. I don’t hate him.
A lot of it is just negativity and I don’t like to bring that energy into my life. But I did look at it and he said that, he said um, ‘When I said that I didn’t like your dress, I was an asshole. When I said that I didn’t like your hair, I was an a**hole.’
And he was an a**hole. He was. I feel like he gets that now, and he’s remorseful about being an a**hole to me.”
— Model Amber Rose responds to her ex-boyfriend Kanye West thanking the city of Philadelphia (fifth item) for the “incredible” person — her — who inspired his song “Runaway.” Her response to Kanye’s public apology continued, after the jump.
“But he called me an incredible person, and I take that as an apology. And if it was an apology, I forgive him for being an a**hole. I don’t hold any grudges. I don’t hate him. I want him to find a girl and for him to treat her better than he treated me.
The next girl, she doesn’t deserve that. I found pure happiness with Wiz [Khalifa, her boyfriend]. Why wouldn’t I want that for Kanye? I want everyone to have that, to feel the way I feel about Wiz.”
That’s a really magnanimous response, one that shows a lot more maturity than most of us might have after being the subject of some pretty bitter songs on My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. (At least, I think it was Amber who inspired “Blame Game,” right?)
Personally I would prefer an apology from a dude that goes “Hey, I’m sorry I ___ because ___.” But it sounds like Amber Rose understands Kanye West’s limitations and accepts him for the flawed man that he is. I’m really happy for her that she’s found a better partner for her and is a big enough person to wish Kanye the best. [Complex]
