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.
