Eve faces backlash for saying "I just don't think it's right" while discussing Minaj's risqué photos on "The Talk."
"A lot of ya'll need to calm down AND LISTEN to what I said," she tweeted. "I am speaking from the place I am TODAY as WOMAN and how I feel NOW!!!"
Eve, a rapper herself, said on the daytime talk show that she was concerned about how the sexualized, NSFW images would impact young women and girls who idolize Minaj.
"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,"she said. "I think every artist has the 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," she continued. "And not that you want to be a role model, but it is what you are. It's a responsibility whether you like it or not."
Eve added that she "loves" and "respects" Minaj, whom she met on the set of "Barbershop 3: The Next Cut," but suggested the music superstar show young women that they can use their brain instead of showing off their body next time.
"I just don't think it's right," Eve concluded.
