Isn’t 50 Cent the same dude who doesn’t have one negative thing to say about his ex -Chelsea Handler, but ruthlessly dogged both Vivica Fox and the mother of his child? Isn’t he also the same little diabolical miscreant who made a p**n of Rick Ross’ ex as a way of getting revenge? Wait, did we ever find out who set fire to the mother of his child’s home during their child support battle?
And isn’t Oprah the benefactor, and role model, for girls at her school in South Africa? Now, tell me again how this mashup with 50 Cent teaches young and impressionable black girls in S. Africa to feel good about themselves? In this photo, is 50 Cent wearing the same diamonds around his neck that many blacks in S. Africa are paid pennies to mine?
See how we all knew ahead of time that this interview wasn’t going to turn out well?
Fiddy’s little sit down chat with Oprah Winfrey for ‘Oprah’s Next Chapter’ didn’t end well for the interviewer or the interviewee. 50 Cent came off looking like a fanboy when refusing to answer Oprah head on as to why he named his dog ‘Oprah’, and Oprah ended up looking… desperate.
I sat with my mouth wide open as Oprah (aunty “O”) pretended as if she’d never heard the age old saying, “either pray or worry, but don’t do both.” I’ve heard my 70 year old mama say that, so why in the name of Nehemiah Oprah felt the need to stroke 50 Cent’s ego, and pretend that he was full of sage wisdom when he said it, is just beyond me. I just wanted to either fall s**p out or hide underneath my couch during that exchange, but instead, I just sat there – stunned.
I want to introduce the ‘OWN’ Oprah to the old Oprah. The old Oprah, who I watched growing up, had a set of values that she adhered to, no matter what. The new Oprah just interviewed 50 Cent, and will be interviewing the classless and talentless Kardashians next week.
And please, don’t even get started with all the “50 may be a nice guy” and “you don’t know him” nonsense. Save it. Everyone is responsible for the side of themselves that the world gets to see. You may read my blogs and think that I’m an a*s, and guess what, sometimes I am (it’s part of my charm). Know what else? I’m responsible for that.
50 showed me that he’s the kind of guy who would tape rapper Young Buck breaking down about his IRS debt, then release the recordings for public consumption, s***s and giggles, all at the expense of another man’s manhood. That’s the kind of man he is. And Oprah’s the kind of woman who would give this sort of degenerate a platform. Let 50 go back to carrying around stacks of money with his bromance Floyd Mayweather, but his antics shouldn’t get a platform beyond his own Twitter account. Man, I miss the old Oprah.
