Word up! Rapper/Actress Eve is not Happy with Nicki Minaj’s Explicit Magazine Cover Issue

| November 16, 2017 | 0 Comments

Rap Queen/Actress Eve was recently replaced Aisha Tyler as co-host on CBS daytime talk show ‘The Talk’, and she used this opportunity to talk about Nicki Minaj’s newest magazine cover with Paper Magazine.

On Wednesday’s show, the 39-year-old rapper/actress let Nicki Minaj have it for having a ménage à trois with herself on a Paper magazine cover.

“I just don’t think that’s right,” Eve said, referring to the 34-year-old rapper whose pedo brother was convicted of child rape earlier this month.

“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 as a lyricist. 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.”

Eve, who is a stepmother to her husband, Maximillion Cooper‘s four children, said Nicki should be mindful that young girls look up to her.

“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… it is what you are. It’s a responsibility whether you like it or not. And I have always, as I’ve gotten older, learned that I’d just rather be a voice that’s uplifting, that is, that I can be a voice for those girls who might not have a voice in a different way, without showing myself off, with my brain.”

Eve isn’t the only one unhappy about Nicki’s sexually creative magazine cover. Millions of people have taken it to social media to share their thoughts on the new visual. Some people felt the magazine cover was trashy, inappropriate, and bad timing especially since her brother was recently convicted of raping his 11-year old stepdaughter.

No one from Nicki’s camp has addressed Eve’s remarks.
