Eve Jeffers-Cooper recently replaced Aisha Tyler as co-host on CBS daytime talk show ‘The Talk’, and she is already snatching wigs.
On Wednesday’s show, the 39-year-old rapper/actress ripped washed up rapper Nicki Minaj 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, a former exotic dancer who plays 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.”
