A history of 50 Cent’s petty feuds with other celebrities

They’re in a good place now, but it took six years for the rapper to mend bridges with Oprah Winfrey. But not before he named his miniature schnauzer dog ‘Oprah.’ Awkward.

So why did he dislike the Queen of Daytime for so long? Because he felt that the 64-year-old put down hip-hop culture and everything he stood for. And he also called her out for rarely inviting rappers on her self-titled talk show.

“I think she caters to older white women,” Fiddy told the Associated Press in 2006. “Oprah’s audience is my audience’s parents… So, I could care less about Oprah or her.”

The pair hashed it out on her new show Oprah’s Next Chapter in 2012, where she confronted him for naming his “b—-” after her, which she said was “not a compliment.”

“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 — and I gave it to the dog,” he explained.

Hmm, but what’s his excuse for calling his cat Gayle, after Winfrey’s best friend Gayle King?

“I got a dog named Oprah and a cat named Gayle. LMAO,” he tweeted in 2015.
