Amber Rose, 36, announced her forehead tattoo was inspired by the late NBA legend Kobe Bryant and her father's battle with cancer at the age of 40.
Rose, a mother, model, and activist, made headlines earlier this month when she debuted the words "Bash Slash" in cursive letters below her hairline. "Bash" (for Sebastian Taylor - son) and "Slash" (for Electric Alexander Edwards - son). Fans went crazy on Instagram, commenting on this controversial way she is honoring her children.
Rose attended Keyshia Cole's series "One on One with Keyshia Cole" on Fox Soul's, Rose opened up regarding the matter.
"I don't want this to sound corny or anything, but kinda after Kobe (Bryant) died, it made me reflect on my life...I don't want people to be like, 'Oh Kobe died, and you went and got a tattoo,' but it was kinda like that." - she told Cole during the interview.
Rose earned feedback from social media spectators all the to the legendary daytime television talk show host Wendy Williams. Rose chose to respond to the criticism in a post on Instagram:
"For the people that are telling me I'm too pretty for a face tat are the same people that would tell me that I'm 'too pretty' even if they thought I was ugly and lie to me... or they would just tell me I'm ugly...Either way, the moral of the story is, do whatever the f**k you want in life." - Amber Rose Instagram
