VIBE April/May Cover Story: 50 Cent (Pg. 3)

News

Vibe / April 20, 2011

Your controversial tweets don’t stop there. You tweeted a picture of Chelsea Handler kissing you on the cheek and wrote: “I don’t know why people say I have jungle fever. I never kissed a white girl.”
Ha-ha. Yeah, I got jokes for you.

You never admitted to having anything going on with her.
Yeah, because we’re friends. 

Are you still friends?
I don’t speak to her as much as I did.

US Weekly says she refused gifts from you and said she can buy her own gifts. 
Chelsea is wealthy. What gift can’t she buy? That was an assumption to write that. That was an easy shot to say she can buy her own gifts.

Okay, okay. But if you did catch “jungle fever” would she be the one?

Chelsea is confident. I think confidence is the sexiest thing about a person. She’s the kind of person that if you’re blessed with the opportunity to hang out with her, you’ll enjoy it. I’m not sure you’ll look at her and actually want to jump over the table and fuck her, but you might. You would leave after talking with her feeling that she is a cool person.

How about the Ciara flare-up? She tweeted something about your character and your tweets.
I’m being interrogated by previous tweets!

Yeah, your tweets can and will be held against you.
[laughs] Like in everything else I mentioned, isn’t it always me being attacked first?

I don’t know about that.
I could care less about trying to attack someone or bring them down in any way. I look at those scenarios like they’re actually trying to attack me. See, even if I have to assume that US Weekly said what you say. I’m sure she didn’t say that. 

What about Ciara’s case?
She’s a friend. She’s been a friend. You know? And it’s like, I don’t know what to expect of people. I’ve been surprised a lot. You think you know what to expect out of people but…. I don’t know how I respond to that without being the bad guy.

Okay, here’s a chance to support a good guy: Do you think Justin Bieber was robbed for the Best New Artist Grammy?
I think Drake got robbed. He should have got artist of the year last year [laughs] to be real with you. 

Why should he have won this year?
He did a lot, man. I don’t believe that Drake would have been as successful or his project would have been as successful if Lil’ Wayne was home. That point where Wayne had to sit down provided a complete focus on Drake.

You think Wayne detracts from Drake’s ability to shine?
