During a recent interview, Eve had nothing but kind things to say about Minaj as a woman and an artist, recalling their experience working together on the movie Barbershop 3.

“She’s a nice person. She’s an amazing rapper and as a lyricist, I respect her,” Eve explained on TV’s The Talk. The rapper and actress recently joined the program as a co-host.

“But as a woman, I personally would not be able to do that,” she said in regards to the racy “Minaj à Trois” photo shoot for Paper. “I think in this climate it’s not good.”

Acknowledging her position as a role model, Eve stood her ground while conceding that Minaj fans were sure to come for her on social media.

“I’d just rather be a voice for those girls who have no voice in a different way without showing myself off,” she said. “I just don’t think it’s right.”
