The surest way to start a war of words is to insult a fellow hip hopper’s girlfriend, as 50 Cent has just done to Kanye West. This won’t end well.
You may be aware that Kanye has written a new track for his girlfriend Kim Kardashian (we have no idea what she does but she’s famous). The title of the track in question is slightly too rude to print here, but West calls Kim a perfect female dog. It’s supposed to be a compliment.
But 50 Cent has some harsh words to say about the relationship, telling reporters:
“You know how it is? One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. I mean, if that man feel like she’s perfect, then she’s perfect. He could mean it and you’ll end up singing the words to it because he’s Kanye.”
This is a sweet if not utterly bizarre story. Mouthy rapper Pitbull has performed a show in a remote branch of Walmart, after a competition was hijacked by a mischievous prankster.
The enormous American shop chain had launched a contest for Pitbull’s fans to vote for which of their stores they’d like to see him perform at. The remote location of Kodiak in Alaska received 71,000 votes, despite only having a population of 6130, thanks to a joke Facebook campaign which attempted to exile the bald MC.
But the game fella played the gig anyway, and was presented with the key to the city and a bear repellent kit (yes, really!) as a thank-you!
But in an act of revenge, Pitbull insisted the instigator of the voting prank, a writer named David Thorpe, also attend the show on the island.
This gives us an idea though. Where can we send Dappy?
People have been quite hard on Tulisa of late, so it’s nice to see someone sticking up for her for a change. We just didn’t expect it to be rap superstar 50 Cent.
Fiddy has been following the former N-Dubz singer’s trials and tribulations very closely, it seems, and told reporters:
“I’m going to be over in the UK later on again in the year and I would love to meet Tulisa for dinner. She had it tough and she has also been through some (bleep) recently as well. I love how she has handled that by flipping the bird to that guy who sold her out.
“I’ve been watching and reading about Tulisa since she got the role on the UK X Factor and my girl is no wannabe. She is real, she is talented, and the sort of person I want to be creating music.”
All together now: Curtis fancies Tulisa, Curtis fancies Tulisa… etc.
