Amber Rose is trying to smooth things over with her hometown by explaining her remark about no "traditional beauty" in South Philly ... was really about herself.
Amber was looking cute in a brunette wig -- traditionally speaking -- Saturday night on her way out of Playhouse nightclub, and she was anxious to set the record straight. She claims she never said anyone was ugly -- although it sure as hell sounds like it when you watch the video from the "Drink Champs" podcast.
Amber's clarification seems to be that she was referring to "society's standards of beauty" -- and that even she didn't feel beautiful.
Translation: The world thought South Philly had ugly people, and I was one of them?
