50 Cent’s business and personal relationship with boxer-Floyd Mayweather Jnr. has come to an end. 50 Cent decided to tell the world about his break up with Floyd Mayweather last night.
Using his twitter account; he sent the below tweets…
Though it is not clear as to what really caused the break up, rumour has it that, the break up was unavoidable the moment 50 started picking business moves with Mayweather’s boxing rival-Manny Pacquiao.
Whatever it is, we surely won’t be seeing Mayweather and Fiddy doing it together again.
Rapper 50 Cent obviously feels left out of the endless V.I.P guests including rappers that have been interviewed on the Oprah Winfrey show. Who knows what sparked off this unpredicted reunion. The pair however appeared to want to make it as humble and understated as possible, the interview took place in Queens New York where he was raised by his Grandparents who still reside there (see pix below).
Though worlds apart, as most know the two have a well known history of disagreements that dates back some six years. In the past fifty, real name Curtis Jackson, has openly stated Oprah’s audience is my audience’s parents so I could care less about Oprah or her show.’ So this sit-down interview has come as a surprise to many! The candid interview reveals the rivalry, why he named his dog Oprah and how he was able to swallow his Pride…awww he’s all grown up now…
See extracts from the full interview after the jump…
Rapper 50 Cent has been sued by Robert Poindexter of The Persuaders for allegedly stealing a sample snippet of his band’s song, Love Gonna Pack Up And Walk Out without permission, for the song Redrum, which he released online for free…
Fiddy argues that because he didn’t charge for the track, he does not have to abide by copyright laws. REALLY?
The suit reads:
“Fifty Cents [sic] has not denied the infringement, but appears to be basing his defense solely on a frivolous and immaterial claim that the illegal version is not being commercially exploited, but is given away for free.”
Robert Poindexter via the lawsuit is asking for an unknown amount of statutory damages and $600,000 in punitive, plus interest.
50 cent cannot be predicted…Why name your dog ‘Oprah’? Last friday, 50 made a guest appearance on ABC’s ‘The View’ to discuss his new anti-bullying book-Playground.
Check out some of the things he talked about whiles on there below
On whether he’s ever accidentally told someone ‘I Love You’
Probably the first time, every time. I think that when a man says ‘I love you’ the first time, he means ‘This really feels good’. It’s like “This friendship is good”. Take it like something really interesting is happening and I am confused. After [a man] says it a few times to you and he says it to himself, then he believes it. It’s such a big commitment. It does mean something.
On naming his dog ‘Oprah’
It started out negative ’cause I thought Oprah didn’t like Hip-Hop culture. I got the dog and now I love Oprah. i started to feel like I didn’t like her and I hadn’t met her.
Nominations for the 2012 People’s Choice Awards are in and not surprisingly Beyonce leads with 5 nodes-Favorite Album of The Year, Favorite Pop Artist, Favorite R&B Artist, Favorite Music Video and Favorite Female Artist.
Beybey will come head to head with Rihanna both in the Pop and R&B categories…It will be shocking if Rihanna beats Beyonce to the game.LOL. I doubt that can happen though!
First of all when I hear a celeb is being interviewed by Piers Morgan I know it will be a full on, honest and maybe sometimes offensively open interview. A celeb really needs to know what they’re about to let themselves in for when they agree to go on air with this media veteran. Piers is almost like a defense lawyer the way goes in hard on the celebs.
On this occasion 50 cent, better known as Curtis Jackson sat with Mr Morgan yesterday evening and is very open and honest about who he is, who he was and how he made it so big. I was especially curious about what he had to say about his pops as he rarely ever gets a mention.
I gotta ask though…where them cornrows come from?
On a serious note check the full insightful interview below…
In this month’s edition of JET magazine, the man of many entertaining talents, Fifty cent dishes the dirt on his upcoming book ‘50 Cent Playground: The Mostly True Story of a Reformed Bully’. During the interview 50 explains that he wrote the book he hopes will encourage kids to think about the reasons behind bullying and how it impacts communities. He tells the American weekly urban magazine:
“I was [a bully] at different points during my childhood,” the 36-year-old shares. “I was dealing with my emotions the wrong way. From a child’s perspective, you don’t understand. As an adult, you get that’s not the way to deal with things.”
“The story follows Butterball, a youngster who hits a kid on the playground… with a sock full of batteries. Butterball comes from a broken household and is dealing with relocating and feelings of powerlessness. “It’s for everyone,” he adds”.
“My son is 15, and I have conversations with him about things like this. He isn’t being bullied, but he meets people who have expectations of him because of the aggressive energy that I have and the content of the material I create. They look at him like he’s supposed to be like that,” he shares. “But he’s not. He doesn’t even know what it feels like to need for something. When we didn’t have any money, he was too young to notice.”
Still kinda surprises me that the likes of fiddy and Lil Kim have fans in Australia of all places but then again…why not. They hot right? Check out their joint performance in Perth, Australia earlier this week. Lil Kim of course had to give fiddy and sample during the track…
