50 Cent has never been the friendliest celebrity. In fact, he’s probably offended about half of the music industry, the majority of the general public and even your sweet saint of a grandma at some point. And while we expect 50 Cent to get in beefs with rivals and frenemies like T.I., Ja Rule and Game, it came as a shock to most of the world when word recently spread that 50 Cent now has a beef with pop icon Madonna.
The beef all started after 50 Cent learned that Madonna, who recently signed a lucrative deal with Interscope Records, making her 50’s labelmate, learned that Madge is working on a song titled “Girls Gone Wild.” Unfortunately, 50 is also working on a single with the same title, something he says is no coincidence.
“These people are gonna make [me] kill one of them. Now Madonna’s single is called GIRLS GONE WILD. This is some bull sh*t #SK” tweeted 50, who went on to further criticize his record label for their continual snubs.
Neither Madonna nor Interscope Records have responded to 50 Cent’s critiques, and honestly we don’t expect them to. And considering 50 Cent’s past gripes about the way Interscope’s been handling his new album, perhaps it’s time to jump ship. Either way, this beef, like so many others, is already dead from the start. And while you no doubt ponder the logic or lack thereof for this beef, be sure to check out or list of six other unnecessary hip-hop beefs. –nicholas robinson
