Lil Kim says PETA protest went too far: “You do not get aggressive”

Aaron J. Thornton/WireImageAfter PETA supporters confronted Lil Kim Tuesday in New York City for wearing fur, The Queen Bee has snapped back.

“I do not mind protesting. I think that you should definitely stand up for your right and I love, love animals.” Kim tells Extra. “However, you do not take things into your own hands and you do not get aggressive. You do not jump into anyone’s space.”

“The Magic Stick” rapper is releasing 9 on Friday, first album in 14 years.  She also explained to Extrawhy she chose the title.

"9 has been my favored number. June 9 she’s born. Biggie passed away on March 9. There were nine members in the Junior M.A.F.I.A," Kim says. "Its 2019. My album couldn’t come out next year. It couldn’t come out the year before this."

Kim’s 9 album features Musiq Soulchild, Rick Ross, Rich the Kid, O.T. Genasis and City Girls. She says this is part one of a two part project. No word on when part two will be released.

In other recent news, on Saturday, Kim received the I Am Hip Hop award at the BET Hip Hop Awards in Atlanta. She says it was a special moment she didn't think would ever happen.

"It meant the world to me because sometimes you feel like you’re not being appreciated," she says. "For years I thought I would never get one. I wrote it off.  It’s like, it’s over. I’m never gonna get one, and then I get the mother of all mother award. Thank you, BET."
