Wiz Khalifa has always believed in Amber Rose. His boo may have started out as a model, but Rose is now branching out into a number of different endeavors including fashion design, acting and making music.
“She’s amazing. I love Amber so much, as a person and just watching her grow and just take things on,” Wiz told MTV News on Saturday on the red carpet at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. “I just really get to sit back and watch her become this amazing superstar that I already knew she was. Now everybody else gets to see it.”

Khalifa believes in his girl so much that he lent his vocals to her debut song “Fame,” which Rose released online two weeks ago. On the single, the stately model sings of the pitfalls of being in the limelight. But “Fame” has received criticism, something Rose is familiar with.
“I knew when I put out this single that I was gonna deal with scrutiny or people that might like the song but just because it’s me, they don’t like it — they just don’t want to give it a chance, but that’s OK,” Rose said on “RapFix Live” earlier this month. “They don’t have to take me as an artist right now. I’ll just have to prove it to them.”
Despite the naysayers, Rose insists that she has been getting a lot of positive feedback on the record that she co-wrote. She is currently in the studio working on an album. “I have probably about five songs done, but I’m taking my time,” she said, adding that she takes the music “very seriously.”
Though Wiz always believed, at first it was difficult for Amber to embrace her growing popularity. “It was hard for me to embrace the fact that I was famous. Even just being out and taking pictures. I was always very quiet,” she said. “It was a little weird for me and I had to get used to it. And now that I’ve embraced it, I’m ready to move on and do everything that I enjoy doing — one being music.”
