Eve Doesn’t Approve of Nicki Minaj’s Shoot: Its just not right.
She hasn’t been on The Talk for a week and Eve is already making headlines for her opinion.
This week, the new talk show host weighed in on Nicki Minaj’s new Paper Magazine cover.
The 39-year-old stated,
I worked with Nicki, I got to know her on ‘Barbershop’… she’s a nice person, she’s an amazing rapper, and as a lyricist I respect her… but as a woman, from my point of view, personally, I would not be able to do that.
I think in this climate, it’s not good. I think every artist has a right to express themselves however they want to express themselves and I respect that as well.
For me personally, as I started coming up in the business, I started realizing that young girls were looking up to me and younger people were looking up to me, and that, not that you want to be a role model, but it becomes what you become, it is what you are.
As I’ve gotten older … I’d just rather be a voice that’s uplifting… I can be a voice for those girls that might not have a voice, in a different way without showing myself off … For the Nicki fans, I love her, respect her.
Go women in hip hop. It’s not my thing. I just don’t think it’s right. Personally. Period. That’s it.
See the clip and swipe.
Eve received some backlash from Minaj’s fans, which prompted her to respond on social media.
