Power and Empire are both seeing the end of their television runs, but Taraji P. Henson is questioning why 50 Cent continues to tear down one of the most successful black shows in television history. Last year he took aim at Henson on instagram proclaiming she was a lost sibling of Michael Jackson.
Taraji recently paid a visit to T.I.’s Expeditiously podcast and shared a few words on 50 Cent and his behaviour when it comes to other successful black stars. “Our show has nothing to do with his show, we’re talking two different subject matters,” she said. “Does he understand what I did to get here? Why tear down another black person for competition? There are a million other shows he can compete with? And to do that publically, it’s embarrassing.”
Before the new year, 50 Cent claimed that he would be more positive. “All self-destructive devices should be turned off at this time. All negativity, hurt and discouragement should be put away. Should we lose Altitude under pressure during the flight, reach up and pull down a Prayer,” he wrote. Let’s hope he pulls through on his word.
