Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa Are Tough-Talking Cowboys Now

How is Amber Rose still famous? Kanye West plucked her out of ex-stripper obscurity during his nuttiest era, and she became the most visible representation of “crazy pariah ‘Ye’”: They wore matching furs, they passed the Henny bottle back and forth, they took some truly preposterous photos. Logic would dictate, though, that when they broke up, Rose would slink right back into obscurity. Somehow, stubbornly, Amber held on. She found herself a new rap boyfriend, the young and boring Wiz Khalifa. She dutifully churned out gossip fodder. (If you hadn’t heard, Kim Kardashian is a home wrecker. Also, “I have people throwing things at me in the street because they’re fans of Kanye,” which, like, I would love to meet the person whose reaction upon seeing Amber Rose in the street is to just chuck the rest of their Wendy’s Jr. Cheeseburger Deluxe at her). And, somewhere along the way, Amber Rose became a famous-because-she’s-famous celebrity all on her own. Seriously: She’s even put out a vanity single! From arm candy to independent famous-for-being-famous power player: Hers is a manner and quality of steely-eyed resilience you must respect.

All of which is a long-winded way of bringing us to the above clip. It’s a preview from a Western called Gang of Roses 2. It’s got horses. It’s got guns. It’s got bandannas. It’s got Amber. It’s got Wiz. They play cowboys. It’s … it’s perfect.
