Celebrity blogger and journalist CLAY CANE recently did an interview with Eve for HX Magazine. Eve was very open with Clay about her girl crush, how to battle a Lil’ Kim drag queen, DL men in hip-hop, working with homophobic artist Sizzla and much more. Check out a snippet of the interview below:
At what point in your career did you know the gay community supported you?
I feel like they have always supported me from the time I came out. I always felt good if a gay person gave me props. Honestly, I feel like if a gay person gives you props, you must be doing something right. Thatâ€™s just real, and I always felt like that. I wish I remembered this drag queenâ€™s nameâ€¦I was in downtown New York and she pulled me to the side and she was like, â€œGirl, you are hot! Okay? You donâ€™t let nobody tell you different!â€ I loved it! I was like, â€œThank you!â€ Iâ€™m happy I have the support.
Do you have gay friends in your circle? Â»
Yeah, I guess, but I donâ€™t think about it like that. But, yeah, I definitely do.
Whoâ€™s the most important gay person in your life? Â»
I donâ€™t have any best [gay] friends or a â€œtalk on the phoneâ€ kind of thing. Itâ€™s more businessâ€”friendship business.
Do you get approached a lot by women? Â»
Yeah, I used to more when I first came out. Iâ€™ve had people tell me straight up and down that I was gayâ€”I still get it from people. I get more accusations than I actually do get hit on now.
Who is your celebrity girl-crush? Â» My girl crush is Angelina Jolie. Thatâ€™s an everybody girl-crushâ€” thatâ€™s my dogâ€™s crush! [Laughs] There is one more person: Dita Von Teese. Iâ€™m obsessed with her! I want a Dita Von Teese doll and Iâ€™ll be happy. Sheâ€™s just bananas!
If an â€œEveâ€ drag queen had to battle a â€œLilâ€™ Kimâ€ drag queen, what pointers would you give to Miss Eve? Â»
I love that question! Iâ€™m trying to think of some good shit! [Laughs] It would just be to keep it sexy, keep it glamorous, keep it classic, but still funky, still hot, still edgy. I wouldnâ€™t be mad if they changed wigs in the middle of the setâ€” Iâ€™ve had a lot of hairstyles! [Laughs] If we could do that, I think weâ€™d kill it!
