Rapper Eve is already causing controversy on her new spot on CBS’s The Talk, Nicki Minaj is the cover girl for Paper Magazine which shows her being in a ménage à trois with herself …
Eve said she didn’t care for the pictures because whether Nicki Minaj likes it or not she has become a role model for young girls.
“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.”
After Nicki fans went in on Eve, who can still be found in pictures online from her stripper days, simulating threesomes on stage with other strippers, E-V-E put her comments into perspective.
