(AllHipHop Rumors) Rapper Eve is already stirring the pot with controversy as a new host on The Talk!
The rapper took time out to give fellow femcee Nicki Minaj her props, but after doing so, she also made it clear that she was not a fan of Nicki's new controversial Paper Magazine cover.
“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,” said Eve.
If Eve hasn't completely felt the wrath of Nicki's Barbz fan base, she will by tomorrow.
You know folks were quick to remind Eve that she once was a stripper, but Eve's fans and people who agreed with her in general, pointed out that Eve mentioned that she had changed and evolved as she began to come up in the game.
I know Eve has certainly evolved over the years, and she has a hell of a life now with her billionaire boo, but I wasn't expecting Eve to be so "judgy" here.
I can definitely understand the points she makes though. What are your thoughts on Nicki's cover, and what are your thoughts on Eve's response?
