This could be worth watching; I wonder what she’s going to ask him… what they’re going to talk about.
Recall 50 Cent had beef with Oprah Winfrey 3 years ago, joining other rappes like Ice Cube and Ludacris is calling Oprah out for her alleged hip-hop bias. I believe this originated even before that when Ice Cube felt dissed by Oprah because he wasn’t invited to her show when his fellow Barbershop actors were; and then Ludacris claimed that the show edited his responses to questions, when he appeared on the show promoting Crash.
50 Cent put his $.02 in, stating publicly that Oprah “caters to older white women… Oprah’s audience is my audience’s parents. So, I could care less about Oprah or her show.“
And to add insult to injury, Fiddy named his dog Oprah Winfree (the change in spelling of the last name obviously wasn’t fooling anyone) and even set up a Twitter account for the dog (in the photo above), which became quite popular. Some time later, he was asked why he named his dog after Oprah, by Sherri Shepherd on The View; “I don’t know if you’re trying to say Oprah’s a bitch or you love Oprah,” Sherri said to 50. And he replied, “I thought Oprah didn’t like hip-hop culture. Then I got the dog, and now I love Oprah;” of course, Oprah, the dog.
Oh boy… but apparently they’ve since kissed and made up, because Oprah will sit down with Mr Cent for the first time ever, on the next episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter, this Sunday night, only on her fledgling new network, OWN.
Will you be watching?
I hope she asks him about his film business exploits.
On that same episode, Paris Jackson, daughter of Michael Jackson, will also sit and chat with the O, almost exactly 3 years since he passed.
Here’s a preview:
