Posted on June 23, 2012

50 Cent was recently interviewed by Oprah and she asked him why he named his dog after her.

Oprah: "Let me ask you. I heard you have a dog named Oprah. I consider that a compliment. Whether you meant it to be one or not."

50 Cent: "I love you. You know how they say a dog is a man's best friend."

Oprah: "I know. I've had 22 dogs in my life. I have a five right now. Okay, but you named you're dog Oprah. That was not a compliment."

50 Cent: "I've got a cat too [Gayle] I was looking for cute names for pets."


Oprah: "Okay, Why did you name your dog Oprah?"

50 Cent: "At the time, I was just looking at the situation and I was developing negative feelings for someone who doesn't even know me. And then I gave it to the dog because I was excited about the dog."

Oprah: "So, now do you have greater affection for me."

50 Cent: "Absolutely, I have for a few years now."
