50 Cent names dog Oprah
50 Cent named his dog Oprah after Oprah Winfrey. Yes, this is his way of offending the host after a recent feud. The very first time they sat together for an interview, Oprah Winfrey confronted the singer about his decision to name his dog after her. “I heard you have a dog named Oprah … that was not a compliment”, the host said.
“I love you … you know how they say a dog is a man’s best friend?” 50 Cent said in return. “At the time, I was just looking at the situation and I saw I was developing negative feelings for someone who doesn’t even know me’, the rapper added.
It looks like their feud had something to do with Oprah’s famous campaign against the N-word and degradation of women in hip hop. 50 Cent admitted he took it personal. “I would see moments where you would discuss your feelings on the culture, and everything that was wrong with the culture was on my CD … and I was like, ‘She doesn’t like me’”, he said.
The singer added that he had a cat named Gayle (reference to Oprah’s best friend Gayle King).
Thanks God the feud is over. Meanwhile, 50 Cent hired a babysitter to take care of his animals.
