“I was working in strip clubs when I was 18. My act was pretty wild. I’d wear black leather and dance to Black Sabbath, Guns N’ Roses and Faith No More. Very rock ’n’ roll. I don’t like to talk about it too much, but there were drugs, serious drugs. I wouldn’t want to inspire other people to do the same” she once said.

Eve admitted being a stripper. “Rappers talk about drug dealing before they made it and it’s not a big thing, but me stripping is?” she told Rolling Stone Magazine. “Come on. That was a hustle, too; there’s a song about it on my album, Heaven Only Knows. But I don’t regret it. I was 18 and confused, going through personal problems. I did it for about a month, and I was glad I did it. It helped me find Eve, helped me get serious. It was depressing. A lot of those girls have three or four kids. I’d sit there and be like: Eve, you don’t belong here, this is not your world.”
