Former Ruff Ryder Eve hasn’t been consistently on the music scene in years now, but she hasn’t exactly been sitting idle either.
The bangin’ blonde-haired rapstress has been focusing more on her personal life with her British boo-thang, managing her own label, working on a new album, and even planning for children. She recently sat down with Vibe Vixen to dish on everything from her relationship, being a girly-girl, loving Lauryn Hill, holding her own as female rapper, and much more.
Check out a few interview excerpts below:
VIBE Vixen: You’ve been fairly open about your relationship in recent interviews. How do you decide what to share and what to keep to yourself?
Eve: It’s pretty hard. You can get so comfortable with sharing that you don’t even realize it, but at the same time, I feel like I’ve been really good at being private. We might write tweets like, “I love you baby. Thank you,” but I don’t really put out much personal information about us or what we’re exactly doing. It’s or whatever, but never anything too personal.
Would you say you’re a girly girl?
Oh, I’m a girly girl, but I’m like a schizophrenic because I love my sweatpants, too. That’s the first thing I do when I go to a hotel or when I come home. I put on something comfortable.
You’re in the hot seat for “Salon Sessions,” but if you were sitting in the audience, who is someone you would like to watch get interviewed?
Lauryn Hill. She’s such an inspiration still. I know she’s going through a lot, but I’m really happy that she’s signed a new deal with Sony. I’m happy to hear music from her. She’s one of the greatest, and it’s great that she’s like, f*ck it, I am who I am and I’m not gonna be who you want me to be.
