The title of "Bad Bitch" was claimed recently by Amber Rose, a woman with a known taste for mesh garments and #belfies. Amazon describes eloquently the thesis of her upcoming, edgy-yet-accessible guide to life: "Filled with helpful advice and personal anecdotes, How to Be a Bad Bitch covers finances, career, love, beauty, and fashion." Like a true "self respecting female who has everything together," Amber will appear on the cover in little more than a pair of hoop earrings.
