Eve is making a splash quick as the new host of CBS’ The Talk. 

With Nicki Minaj making headlines with her steamy shoot for Paper Magazine, the conversation was made on her decision to be involved with such a risque shoot. 

Former first lady of the Ruff Ryders gave her honest take of the decision and revealed that she wasn’t the biggest fan of the decision at this time of her life now, and the impact the shoot can have on young girls who look up to her.

“It’s one of those things because I’ve worked with Nicki,” she said. “I got to know her on [the movie] Barbershop and she’s incredibly, 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. For me personally, as I was coming up in this business, I started realizing young girls were looking up to me and younger people were looking up to me and not that you want to be a role model but it is what you are.”

Following the comments, as usual the internet dragged her and began bringing up Eve’s past as a stripper and being the victim of a sex tape that had leaked on the internet.
