Eve has a new album due out later this year, so she’s been on the road doing countless interviews trying to get her name back into the spotlight and generate some much needed buzz.
Even with dropping countless freestyles (Rihanna’s Diamonds, Miguel’s Adorn, etc.) releasing a hot new single (She Bad Bad ) and then releasing an official remix (featuring Pusha T and Juicy J), Eve’s still not getting much air play or buzz.
Not even here in the City of Brotherly Love, where she’s from, smh.
It took Eve throwing shade at Britney Spears for her to finally get some attention. What a waste!
During an interview with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live, the Philly rapper was asked about Spears’ apparent British accent on Will.I.Am’s song Scream and Shout.
“I heard that might not be Britney… That’s what I heard, but you know, I don’t know.
It could be Britney. But I heard it wasn’t. I don’t know, though.”
Spear’s camp was not too happy to hear Eve’s opinion regarding Britney’s feature and responded ASAP, telling TMZ:
“It’s absolute BS. Britney sang the song.
Will.i.am wanted her for this song and she sang on it.”
Of course, someone who was there during the studio recording had to add in their 2 cents from the side line.
“Was Eve even in Studio. Didn’t know. She’s clearly jealous.
I didn’t even know she still sings.”
I still didn’t care much for the situation, until news came out that Eve was backtracking her statement to clarify what she meant because of all the backlash.
Then I was all “WTF, really?”
The fact that people are in a fit over Eve’s comment regarding Britney’s singing when as an artist, Brit’s already known for her LACK of vocal talent is just…smh.
Let’s get one thing straight, whether Brit-Brit actually appeared on Will’s song doesn’t matter, because at the end of the day she’s still going to lip-sync the shit of Scream and Shout anyway!
Not to mention the fact that both Spears and Will.I.Am like to use a lot of auto tune and studio magic to produce their songs (T-Pain would be proud)… so WHO FUCKIN’ CARES!?
I could see if it was Adele and Eve said the bitch couldn’t hit a high note to save her life, but it’s Britney!
Will.I.Am has already explained why they chose to use a British accent, so why all the fuss? Fans, stop being so fuckin’ butthurt!
There should never be a back and forth over Britney singing, PERIOD. Not to make a joke out of her career as an artist, but C’MON!
You want to know what’s really upsetting though?
The fact that Will wasted his time doing a remix for the song, because the shit sounds worse than the original. LOL
