50 Cent Tells Oprah Why He Named His Dog After Her

50 Cent

50 Cent and Oprah put their differences aside on “Oprah’s Next Chapter.” In another preview from tonight’s episode, the platinum rapper tells Oprah why he named his Miniature Schnauzer after her.

“You know when they say a dog is a man’s best friend?” asked an embarrassed Fif, who also has a cat named after Oprah’s best friend Gayle.

“At the time, I was just looking at the situation and I was developing negative feelings for someone who doesn’t even know me,” he explained. “I gave it to the dog ’cause I was excited about the dog at the time.”

But he has grown fond of the dog and Oprah throughout the years. “I take pictures and say crazy stuff on Twitter, but it would impact because they would associate it with me saying it to you.”

He also admits to being in love during the interview, which airs tonight at 9 p.m. on OWN.

    @@fl4nk, 50 used to dislike Oprah, so he named his dog after her because a female dog = bitch.

    Yes a post is needed b/c it’s not any dog, it’s Oprah. Oprah is huge. However, Im not sure that 50 gave his dog Oprah that name and Gail, those names in good faith initially. I think it’s b/c they both -itches. Bad -itches maybe?

    Oprah been losing in audience ratings on cable and not like it was for her on ABC network. She changing things up and going the youthful way I think and not just to get that rap/hiphop audience. Beiber should be soon, maybe Waka too, heh.
