The rapper/actress made her debut on Tuesday, and by Wednesday (Nov. 15), she was already discussing a hot topic. During a conversation about Nicki Minaj’s provocative PAPER magazine cover, Eve shared her opinion about the racy photos, declaring she couldn’t do it.
“She’s a nice person. She’s an amazing rapper, and as a lyricist, I respect her,” said Eve. “But as a woman, I personally would not be able to do that. In this climate, I think it’s not good.”
Eve continued to clarify her stance, insisting this is only her opinion and not about hate.
“I’d just rather be a voice for those girls who have no voice in a different way — without showing myself off,” she said. “I just don’t think it’s right.”
Naturally, Minaj’s fans went on the attack, forcing Eve to further explain her point of view.
A lot of ya’ll need to calm down AND LISTEN to what I said. I am speaking from the place I am TODAY as WOMAN and how I feel NOW!!!
