Eve Talks Return to Music, Dating Rich, & DMX on ‘Wendy’

Eve

Eleven years after releasing her last album, Eve officially made her return to music this week with Lip Lock. The Philly rapper, who received a nomination for Best Female Hip Hop Artist at the BET Awards, stopped by “GMA” and “106 & Park” earlier in the week. On Thursday, she sat down with Wendy Williams to dish on her absence from music and why it took her so long to release an album.

“I think my album wasn’t what the execs wanted and they just put it on the shelf,” she said, referring to her former deal with Interscope.

She spoke about launching her own label (From the Rib Music), moving to London, and her relationship with fellow Ruff Ryder DMX (“If he ever needed me, I’d be there”).

Wendy pointed out her tendency to date rich men. “There’s a certain lifestyle that I want to live. I’m gonna do it on my own, I work hard, but at the same time, I don’t want to be with somebody that [I gotta take care of],” she said.

Eve, who is now dating British entrepreneur Maximillion Cooper, previously dated Stevie J. “I was young and it was what it was, and God is good,” she said of her relationship with the “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star. “I’m here where I am. I’m happy in love.”

She gave props to Nicki Minaj, Azealia Banks, and Angel Haze, and discussed her latest work. “I hope that when my ladies hear this album that they feel the energy of just being happy and confident,” said Eve.

Next on her agenda is starting a family. “Oh, it’s time to pop something out,” said the 34-year-old. “Let me not pretend.”

    Eve is good. Whether this albums sells much or not she’s back in the music scene. She’s still a rich AF!! The fact that she’s doing all this independently on her OWN label is what makes her THAT B#TCH!!! Haters y’all will hate in your dusty houses sitting on your couch, eating oreos, and trolling on her posts while she’ll be cruising with her billionaire boo in a Morgan for the Gumball 300. *sips juice and combs weave* :D

    Eve looks flawless and I just love her humble personality. Whether she flops or not, you can tell she is comfortable in her own skin and doesn’t really care how people view her at this point. She has done it all before and now she is just having fun with it and pleasing her fans. Thanks for finally releasing “Lip Lock” Eve! “Zero Below” and “Keep Me From You” are my favorites.
