50 Cent isn’t happy with Alicia Keyes. Now I confess I know very little about either of them, other than their names. But now I know 50 Cent doesn’t like “that classical music s—” … well, he doesn’t like it IF Keyes doesn’t like what he’s doing.

I just have to share (I’m a giving sort). So read on:

“I don’t like Alicia Keys no more though … the same reason why I said that I don’t like Oprah Winfrey,” 50 Cent toldThe Showbuzz. “I’m prejudice(d). I don’t like people who don’t like me. If you don’t like the content that I write because of my experiences; I am being who I am when I am writing it. I fall into that ‘label’ as far as you considering artists creating ‘Gangsta music,’ we fall into that.

“If she don’t like that, (then) I don’t like that classical music s— she be doing. At some point she’s playing some s— that don’t relate to me. … We listen to it and try to figure out why people actually enjoy it. I am trying to enjoy it. That statement changes my perception of Alicia Keys totally. But the magazine is standing behind it, which means they probably have a tape of her in conversation saying it. It’s just not really a bright comment anyway.”


Just FYI: if you don’t like oboe, I don’t like you. So there.
