(AllHipHop Rumors) Rapper Eve has recently joined The Talk as a new host, and she's already successfully caused controversy.
Many were shocked to see her express her disappointment in Nicki Minaj's 'Minaj A Trois' Paper Magazine cover.
I told yall it would only be a matter of time before Nicki Minaj's loyal fan base, the Barbz went in on Eve.
Nicki's fans couldn't wait to post pics and video of Eve from her sextape with Stevie J, and pics from her stripping days.
Some fans felt that Eve has gotten with her white billionaire husband and has gotten brand new.
Perhaps Eve should have left it at saying she couldn't do it, instead of adding that she thought it was wrong and not good for the current climate.
“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.
I can see it from both sides, but as it's been said, it's up to the parents to monitor what their children are consuming because artists have the right to express themselves, and all artists don't want the pressure that comes with being a role model.
I wasn't even surprised at Nicki's cover. She's always naked, and she's always rapped sexually suggestive lyrics. What are your thoughts?
