The author of this article seems to be on Amber Rose's side. The author writes that Amber explained her relationship with Kanye West as a "wild ride" and uses the example of the 2009 MTV Music Awards when Kanye rudely interrupted Taylor Swift. I think it was a good idea for the author to include this event in the article because everyone know's about it. Everyone heard what had happened and everyone was against Kanye. I feel like this article was aimed at music fans and people who pay attention to entertainment news. This is because the author does not include a lot of detail about who Amber Rose is, and she is not a normal household name. I feel bad for Amber, and I feel bad that she had to deal with Kanye West. Kanye does not have a reputation of being a nice guy, and this was proved to the world at the music awards in 2009.

Kardashians Manipulate the Media
The minute I saw this article, I was interested. Not just because I love the Kardashians, but because we just read an essay in our patterns book about "fame-iness." Even though I do like the Kardashians, I can honestly say that I don't believe they have any real talent. They use the media and tabloids to attract attention and receive publicity. (I kinda felt deja-vu when I was reading this article because it was just like the Fame-iness essay...) This particular article is about Kanye West's ex-girlfriend, Amber Rose, bad-mouthing Kim Kardashian. Kanye supposedly cheated on Amber with Kim Kardashian. Amber said that the Kardashians "manipulate the media" into believing what they want them to believe.
