Eve Discusses Whether or Not She's Pregnant, Talks New Music and Female Rappers

I learned a lot about Eve while I was listening to her interview this morning on Power 105's the Breakfast Club. For one, I didn't know she was living in London!

The former first lady dished on her thoughts about Nicki Minaj and how female rappers need to stick together, she revealed whether if she's pregnant or not and said she's now focused on life in London with her very rich boyfriend. Also, Azealia Banks didn't want to do a song with Eve for her upcoming album.

Is Eve preggies?:

I’m not pregnant. It was that puffy coat. I’m not pregnant yet, hopefully soon…knock on wood. People lie talking about my friends said that. I don’t know what friend that was because my circle is [small]. I want babies. It will never hold you back. To me that’s the ultimate blessing. I’ve been blessed, but that’s the ultimate.

What took Eve so long to come back!? And her new music:

For the last couple of years people have been asking, ‘Where you been, what have you been doing?’ And I’ve been performing all over the world, but I’m back.[...]I’ve been working my a– off. Honestly. I’ve been working and having fun.[...]I moved to London for love, but also I needed a change. Definitely needed a change. I’m happy I did it because it made me look at things a different way. Now I’m excited to be back in New York.

I’ve been wanting to come back, it’s just that the situation hasn’t been right. Meaning my situation as far as label stuff, management, lawyers…literally the whole situation. And now, it’s the right situation. I miss my music and my music is my first love and I feel like I still got s–t to say.[...]Listen, at the end of the day, I have to say when I came out I think music was one way. You were in a box. You were a female rapper. You had to rap a certain way. Especially, coming from where I came from with Ruff Ryders. I think now music is more exciting, you can experiment, and that’s what’s exciting to me as [an] artist.

On female rappers now:

When I got in the industry I was so na├»ve. I would go up to [Lil] Kim and be like “Hey Kim! I used to listen to you in high school!” and girls used to be like “Oh that’s cute, you cute.” Girls don’t be holding each other down. Me? You can call me anytime. I’ve never been that type of chick. I think that girls should stick together but it ain’t like that.[...]There’s so much testosterone in the game. These dudes work together all the time making hot records. If girls just did that and had that same mentality [that] it’s not just about one and the girls that are popping we make a record together — do you know the movement?

On Azealia Banks:

I like her wordplay. I think she actually can rhyme. I just don’t like the drama. That bothers me.[Would you tap her for the album?] Um, yeah? Didn’t we try to get her? I think she may have been one of the ones who was like, ‘I think I’m busy.’

On Nicki Minaj:

We are so different. I just want people to hear me for me and not compare me to what she’s doing, how she’s poppin, and how she’s doing her thing. She’s in her own lane living her life.

It’s not all my cup of tea. I’m proud of her. I don’t know her, but she’s doing her thing. You can’t be mad at that. I love hearing her on certain records. I love her on ‘Girl on fire,’ I love hearing her like that. She’s doing her thing. You can’t hate on someone that’s successful.
