Eve Criticizes Nicki Minaj for Paper Mag Cover

By HHL JT

Nicki Minaj is trying to "break the internet" with the latest cover of Paper Mag. 

On the cover shot, there are three scantily clad Nickis doing dirty things to each other.

Eve, who just joined the daytime show The Talk, isn't feeling Nicki feeling herself.

"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,” Eve said on The Talk. “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.”

What do you think of Eve's take?
