Rapper Eve Under Fire For Slut-Shaming Nicki Minaj

0


American rapper and actress from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Eve is catching a lot of flak for the things she has said about Nicki Minaj in a new episode of CBS’ “The Talk.”

The topic of the day’s discussion was Nicki Minaj’s ‘Break the Internet’ feature in PAPER Magazine which broke the internet yesterday. Asked to give her personal opinion about the photos, Eve said she is not a fan of the photos.

Here’s what the former Ruff Ryder’s rapper said:

“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 is what you are.

“As I’ve gotten older I’ve learned that I’d just rather be a voice that’s uplifting, that I can be a voice for those girls that might not have a voice, in a different way without showing myself off, with my braid. For the Nicki fans, because I know I’m going to get some tweets from her fans, I love her, respect her. Go women in hip-hop. It’s not my thing. I just don’t think it’s right period.”

Her statement has stirred the internet. While many people are calling her out for shaming the younger rapper, others have reminded her of her epic career which was speckled with a sex tape and her hyper-sexualised persona. They have called her statement condescending.
