In case you’re still trying to figure out how to categorize artists like Fergie and Gwen Stefani, who occasionally blur the line between pop and hip-hop, just fall back and let Eve do the honors. The pitbull-in-a-skirt clearly drew a distinction between those pop stars and hip-hop during a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly.
“What makes it hard is that they’re not hip-hop,” quipped Eve. “I’ll never, ever be able to give Fergie and Gwen that tit;e/ I love them. They make good music. They emulate hip-hop in certain things that they do, but they’re not hip-hop. I think that hurts hip-hop because it’s confusing the lines.”
