*While some guys shy away from media questions about their girlfriends, Wiz Khalifa has no problems talking about his budding relationship with model Amber Rose – which many in the blogosphere has written off as a publicity stunt for both celebs.
According to the rapper, there’s no agenda behind his willingness to talk about it.
“I’m just me. That’s what it is,” Wiz told MTV News about taking his feelings for Rose, Kanye West’s ex, public. “I’m completely comfortable about everything in my life. That’s what my career has been built off. Everybody gets that right away, so you don’t have to find anything about me. I’m not gonna hide it; I’m gonna embrace it and give people in the same situation something to look up to.”
Rose joined Wiz on the “RapFix Live” couch, and after they exchanged kisses on the cheek, she spoke about her “Black and Yellow” boyfriend and what attracted her to him.
“He’s really funny, he’s really charming,” she said. “I didn’t know much about his music at first and, obviously, he became a good friend, I started listening to his music. He’s awesome, he’s talented, he’s amazing.”
Wiz added: “We’re really new, but we’re really close and understand each other’s life. Understanding is really important.”
Earlier this year, Wiz told Hot 97 radio jock Funkmaster Flex that Rose and his mother met before the rapper took the stage to perform before a Steelers playoff game.
“They actually really, really dig each other,” Wiz told MTV News about the meeting. “Amber is a sweetheart, and my mom, everybody who meets her loves her anyway. So it was really tight.”
