Paper Magazine debuted a racy cover featuring Nicki Minaj. Eve reacts, saying, “I worked with Nicki, I got to know her on ‘Barbershop,’ she’s an amazing rapper, and as a lyricist I respect her, but as a woman, from my point of view, 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, 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 continues, “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.”
