Fresh off her hosting duties on VH1’s “Hip Hop Honors,” honoring the Queen G.O.A.Ts of the music industry, Eve stopped by “The Wendy Williams Show” to dish on her marriage, going on tour with Gwen Stefani and a variety of other topics.
The rapstress gave the tea on her tour with Gwen Stefani that kicked off Tuesday night and why collaborating with Stefani on a tour is “the best” for her right now. She also dodged past the question of her past with “The Good Guy” “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta’s” Stevie J.
Peep the excerpts below:
On “Hip Hop Honors:”
“I think it’s amazing that they did the program. The show is way long overdue. Also, right now, the state of hip-hop is too male-driven. There’s too much testosterone. There’s no feminine voice. There are some females but they need to come up more. I’m girls forever. I’m girl power all day.”
On touring with Gwen:
“When I got the call for this tour, I actually was surprised. I haven’t talked to Gwen, physically, in years. I was like, ‘That’s kind of amazing.’ My plan was to do music this summer and put it out anyway. This is the best way. Why not do it with someone fun who I know is not gonna be dramatic and crazy backstage?”
On ex Stevie J:
“It’s weird how I don’t remember any of that.”
On receiving interracial marriage backlash:
“I did. I get it. It was more than I expected. At this day and age, I was like, ‘Wow.’ But at the same time, I get it. I understand it. I come from hip-hop. I come from Philly.”
On having children with Maximillion Cooper:
“We can’t wait. We have been talking about it. We feel settled. It’s been two years now. We feel really settled. I can’t wait for it to happen. When it’s meant to be, it’ll be.”
Watch the Philly native talk about releasing new music, the hip hop industry continuing to be male dominated, and her marriage to Maximillion Cooper.
Eve continues on the “This Is What The Truth Feels Like Tour” throughout July and wraps up on October 15th in Los Angeles.
