“If a stripper changes her life she’s still a stripper. If a drug dealer changes his life he’s a business man, entrepreneur, etc…?”—Amber Rose

It appears Mrs. Rose continues to experience the social stigma she has garnered from her past identity, even though the more socially normative transitions in her life has begun to outweigh that past. As a celebrity It appears her luck seemingly comes with a hefty price.
The analogy she has drawn here is dubious though. Being a stripper in the narrow sense is not criminal behavior as compared with being a drug dealer, although it can beget criminal behavior in the form of prostitution. Hmm.
A convicted drug dealer will always have that stigma of condemnation for the illicit business activity and the unscrupulousness of the violent competition that ensues from engaging in it. It is reinforced through public record. I am not sure where she is getting the business man, entrepreneur thing from… unless she is comparing herself with Jay-Z who has relied more on his artistic talents with hip hop to becoming a mogul, and not so much from “his past" as a "drug dealer”.
