Last week Eve announced her official position as the new co-host for The Talk CBS. Our timeline was flooded with congratulations and we couldn’t help but add to the excitement of seeing a young girl from Philly make a name for herself. Let’s talk about Eve.
According to the updated wikepedia
Eve Jihan Jeffers-Cooper (born November 10, 1978) is an American rapper and actress from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She is the inaugural winner of the Grammy Award for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration in 2002, for the song “Let Me Blow Ya Mind”, with American singer Gwen Stefani. Eve was number 48 on VH1’s “50 Greatest Women of the Video Era” list.
As an actress, Eve is known for her roles as Terri Jones in the films Barbershop, Barbershop 2: Back in Business and Barbershop: The Next Cut, as well as Shelley Williams on the UPN television sitcom Eve. She has also achieved success in fashion, with her clothing line, Fetish. As of November 2017, she is a permanent co-host on The Talk.
What Eve did was take advantage of a great situation, her hustle & grind landed her in a position we dream of. She took the love of her passion and created a name for herself. We would think Eve would be saying these words , started from the bottom now I’m here! and yes girl you deserve it all, we have seen your evolution from
stripper to rapper, actress, wife and now co-host on the Talk, won’t he do it! We all know she has a past but we also know she didn’t let it define her. This week rapper Nicki Minaj also made headlines with her risqué photos in Paper Magazine. Nicki is what you call the black barbie for the young girls, she has a following a strong following and we all know with followers come young girls with ambitions.
While Eve was celebrating a big win, another notch under her belt, Nicki was busy breaking the internet and dam well proud of it! and why shouldn’t she? well according to some fans, she legit went too far, people feel she doing too much, especially at a time where we are trying to teach the young girls rightenous and to respect their bodies, especially with all the allegations of sexual predators in the entertainment industry. According to what we see on Nicki’s instagram, she doesn’t give a dam, she’s an entertainer and entertaining is what she’s doing. Well this week on the Talk they asked Eve, her opinion on the risqué photos, and she simply made a comment about her being a woman, from her point of view, she says in this climate it’s not the time.. check the interview here .
Now our question is how do you feel about the sex symbol debate?
Without being bias, Nicki looks amazing in the photos, she’s portraying sexual freedom, owning her sexuality and being very risqué with herself and although we wouldn’t promote it on this blog, her behavior is her behavior, but we are not here to judge, but that would not be the message we would send to our SHEpreneurs. Let’s keep in mind we are here to promote women empowerment, ambition for the passion and entrepreneurship. So why we feel this post is great for a debatable conversation? because when you reach a certain plateau, you have to ask yourself, what would I do to reach the next level of success. While Eve has a strong message to the young girls looking up to them as role models, we agree with her opinion of the photo without knocking her hustle,. Eve acknowledges Nicki as a great artist that she is.
At the end of the day everybody has an opinion, but we are here to applaud Eve for her evolution. She made a few adjustments in her life and although we know her as the “pitbull in a skirt,” she has become very powerful and prowess in her business decisions and we are here for it!
