Taraji P. Henson Shades 50 Cent: "I Pay Attention To Dollars, Not Cents"
50 Cent promoted the second season of his hit Starz series, Power, and threw jabs at Empire as well. Uploading a pic stitch of both shows' male leads (above) he captioned it:
"POWER Season 2 is unbelievably good trust me. I have the best writers and show runner. I like Terrence Howard and Taraji Henson. I don’t like that they would copy the marketing."
We all know you can't throw low blows on social media anymore without someone pointing it out. When asked about Fiddy's comments of the show on Twitter, Taraji P. Henson shades 50 Cent saying, "I pay attention to $'s NOT cents," plus a hand up emoji. She goes on to say that she couldn't even find the "cent" sign and gives a hearty #byebitch to shut it all down. Whew!
Critics have not expressed similarities between shows to back up 50's sentiments, but you can be the judge of that yourself. Empire airs tonight at 9:00 p.m. on FOX.
