As of late, there’s been a lot of conversation surrounding former couple Amber Rose and Kanye West, who recently dissed his former lover at this year’s Coachella Festival. And although Rose seems to have happily moved on with rapper Wiz Khalifa, she’s continuing to open up about her relationship  with West, sharing details about life post-Kanye and revealing a fling with NFL star Reggie Bush.

In the cover feature of the June/July issue of VIBE, Rose explains that West always told her that she was destined for fame and says that she plans to take full advantage of her new life in the limelight.

“Kanye would always tell be how beautiful I was and that I was going to be iconic. He always said that, ‘Baby, you are iconic. You don’t understand what you have.’ I didn’t. I didn’t understand it,” said Rose, adding that, despite the split, she has no plans on going back to a regular life, “What am I supposed to do? Crawl up in a corner and die ‘cause I’m not with Kanye anymore? Am I supposed to go back to the strip club and not take these opportunities that I have?”

In the article, Rose also reveals that after West, she had a brief fling with NFL star Reggie Bush, who, at the time, had recently broken up with Kim Kardashian.

“Me and Reggie [Bush] dated very briefly after Kanye … We were both each other’s rebound and we both knew that and were cool with that,” said Rose.

On the topic of Kim, Rose also says that unlike the famous Kardashian and her wealthy family, her modest background allows her to better relate to audiences.

“I don’t have rich parents and it’s a struggle,” she says. “I can’t just call my dad and be like, ‘Dad, my money is a little messed up. Can you buy me a car or a house? It’s not like that for me. I feel like more people will relate to my story than the Kardashians or the Hiltons.”
