Wiz Khalifa & Amber Rose Cover XXL

The star couple land the cover of XXL Magazine.

Wiz Khalifa and his new wife, and expecting mother, Amber Rose grace the cover of the upcoming issue of XXL Magazine.

Wiz and Amber announced the pregnancy at this year’s MTV VMAs, and in their interview with XXL they’ll talk about first getting together, Wiz recording his album at home with Amber, Amber’s pregnancy, and more. Check out the cover and few excerpts below.

The issue hits newsstands on October 9th.


Wiz On Getting Together With Amber:

“I love my baby. She’s gorgeous and it makes me look even cooler when I show how much I love her to other people… When I met Amber, she loved me for who I was. I had some money, but it was like to pay my bills and literally set myself up for a future. But I was wearing the same camo shorts and high-tops and Chucks. But she liked my swag and she liked me for who I was and I wasn’t afraid of that… She didn’t wanna date any entertainers or anybody in the business. She didn’t know who she wanted to be with, but she knew who she didn’t wanna be with.”

Wiz On Recording His New Album With Amber At Home:

“I just gotta do it. The most important thing is knowing that she is there and I have to tend to my babies. This is my first child ever in life. I gotta go hard at everything. As hard as I go in the studio, I gotta go just as hard taking care of my baby and making sure she’s alright, and I’m spending time with her and she doesn’t feel neglected.”

XXL Unveils Programming for Diddy’s Revolt Network

Earlier this week, news surfaced that Diddy plans to launch his own television network, Revolt, on December 12, 2012. The channel will be music-themed and geared towards African Americans. Owning a network is a logical step for Diddy. The mogul’s been successful in music, film and television for nearly two decades and is now reportedly worth $500 million. A shameless plugger, Puffy will surely use the network as a promotional tool for his various business ventures, but, above all, expect Diddy to entertain. Considering the man’s track record—Making the Band and I Want to Work for Diddy come to mind—the Bad Boy boss is sure to provide good TV through Revolt. XXL took the liberty of pitching shows well fit for Revolt’s programming. See for yourself. —Carl Chery (@cchery)
