Notes

"Certain people call me Eve of Destruction. I don't mind it, cause I'm still her, I'm still destroying emcees."---Eve

"... The entertainer Eve and Eve Jeffers are not so different, but they are two different people. But I like being able to become other people. That keeps it interesting and exciting, because it's not music all the time. You can get bored when you do the same thing all the time."---Eve Interview September 2002

"... I worked extra hard because I've been broke. I don't want to be broke again, ever. Ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever. I've never been a workaholic before. I don't think that I've realized until now how important it is to be on top of your business."---Eve Interview September 2002

Her mom refers to her as the childhood nickname "poo-a-doo"
