Amber Rose talks finding her inner feminist

Amber Rose has "found her voice" this year.

The 32-year-old American model has had a busy 2015, which has seen her move on with her life following her divorce from Wiz Khalifa, and says the last 12 months have really seen her embrace her inner feminist.

She said: "This year, I feel like I found my voice. I was constantly defending myself, like, "No, I didn't sleep with that guy. No, I'm not a w***e. Don't look at me like that." And one day, I woke up and I was like, "Maybe I am -- and that's cool." If you want to look at me and call me a whore because I'm single and I'm dating, fine! Then I'll be a slut. It's cool. I'm actually cool with that. Once I came to that realisation, I was so happy. I'm 32. I'm single. I'm a mom. Yes, I'm going to date. I'm going to live my life and do whatever I want."

Amber is mother to two-year-old Sebastian with Wiz and admits it was her divorce that really caused her to realise the inequality between the sexes in the world.

She continued during the interview with MTV News: "Going through a divorce, I really saw the double standards. Wiz would be with a different girl every day and get photographed out with girls at the club. I would be on one date with a guy, and it was like, 'You're a horrible mother! You're a f***ed up person! You're a w***e! That's why Wiz left you, you f***ing slut.' And I was just like, damn, am I not allowed to live? Am I not allowed to be sexy anymore because I'm a mom?"
