On 50 Cent missing his son’s graduation because she didn’t invite him:

I didn’t know a parent needs an invitation to a graduation. I think you make time for what you want to make time for. You know your son is in the 12th grade. You know that children, depending on the state, graduate May, June-ish. You’re busy, but that’s why you have assistants. The assistants can call the school and you can fly on your private jet with your big gold chain.

He’s privy to the same information that I’m privy to as a parent. You can call the school or have your assistant call. I’m not being condescending. It was no tickets. It was on the lawn of the school. People that I did invite, they stood on the side to watch the graduation. You could’ve been there. That’s your choice. And being that you said you paid tuition — which he doesn’t — you should’ve had a first class ticket then. You paid tuition, right? But he doesn’t. He pays child support. He doesn’t pay tuition. He promised me, but then he changed his mind. Like, I told him I wanted Marquise to change schools because I felt like the school he was going to was getting a little rough. Read more

Video: Rapper 50 Cent Talks About Love & Naming His Dog ‘Oprah’ On ABC

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.

“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.”
