50 Cent Tells Jimmy Kimmel His Aunt Is Traumatized After Seeing His Penis While Watching 'Power'

50 Cent was livid when he learned his penis would be the center of attention in episode four of Power. The show's executive producer and resident bad guy took to social media to exchange words with show creator and showrunner Courtney A Kemp.

The war of words may have simmered down between the two, but that didn't stop 50 Cent from giving his side of the story Tuesday night (August 23) while speaking with late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel. According to Mr. Jackson, he knew about the scene, but thought the lighting would be darker to mask his private part.

"Courtney, she's like the writer and showrunner of the show and she said 'I didn't want to show it to you in the beginning because I didn't think you  needed to see it at that point,' " 50 cent recalls. "And when she said it like 'You're just going to have take one for the team.' " She then said 'I would do it, but I just don't have one' "

50 Cent, who plays Kanan in the show, said he understands other actors have intense sex scenes on the show, but none of his other male co-stars have frontal scenes. He was also a embarrassed when his aunt Geraldine, who also watches the show, saw his private.

"My aunty G she texted me and she was like 'What the f**k? Why didn't you tell me?' "

Despite the public airing of dirty laundry between Jackson and Kemp, the show continues to be popular among fans, and after the airing of the show's Season Three return, it was announced it was renewed for two more seasons.

'Empire' Makes History By Airing First Black Gay Wedding On Network TV

Wedding bells have just made their way into the history books. Last night (April 25), FOX's Empire became the first network television show to air a black gay wedding. Jamal and his fiancé Kai (Jussie Smollett and Toby Onwumere, respectively) jump the broom and swap vows in the episode titled "Never Doubt I Love."

As an added treat, Empire even tapped the legendary Chaka Khan to perform at the fictional star-studded wedding (Mario and Wood Harris even showed up) which, as evidenced by the episode BTS video, was a moment for everyone right to the stars of the show themselves. “Today’s wedding is special and controversial,” Khan said of using her voice for this particular cameo. “But my answer to all that is just love is love.”

Cast members Taraji P. Henson and Gabourey Sidibe agree that Jamal and Kai's wedding might have just become the best Empire wedding.

While this doesn't necessarily take away from the controversy still surrounding Smollett's case in Chicago, it was a cause for celebration regarding diversity and representation on television nonetheless. As Ms. Khan said, right here and right now, the most important thing to note is that love is love.
