50 Cent, Not an Oprah Book Club Member
In this time when news of racial slurs and name-calling surely don't dominate the headlines, 50 Cent puts his two cents in with a little good old-fashioned Oprah bashing. NY Post reports on the January issue of Elle in which the rapper calls the richest women in show business an oreo:
"[Oprah] started out with black women's views but has been catering to middle-aged white American women for so long that she's become one herself. I think the idea of being publicly noted that she's a billionaire makes [black women] interested in seeing her views. But it's even more exciting to the demographic of white American women she's been aiming at to see that she has the exact same views that they have."
