Looks like Eve isn’t holding back her opinions as the newest co-host of ‘The Talk’. On Wednesday’s show the ladies discussed Nicki Minaj’s racy Paper magazine cover, and Eve wasted no time giving her two cents.
“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,” she continued. “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.”
She adds, “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.”
But Eve isn’t just giving her opinion. She’s talking from experience. The “pitbull in a skirt” was also on the cover of Paper magazine back in 2001 ( yes it’s been around that long) and opted to keep her cookies and cakes covered.
