50 Cent Thinks Donald Trump Became President by Accident
It's not easy being 50 Cent, but he always makes it look effortlessly entertaining. The entrepreneur stops by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, where he discusses his upcoming Den of Thieves movie, while also providing some hilarious commentary about Donald Trump becoming president.
The Get Rich or Die Tryin' MC begins the interview by sharing the difference between his Curtis Jackson persona, which he says is from his grandmother, while his stage name persona coincides with a mean mug. He also confesses that his nickname of "Fiddy" actually stemmed from Sharon Osbourne pronouncing it that way in her English accent, and the rest of the world followed suit.
"To be honest, I think it was like an accident," 50 admits. "When something happens by accident, you're not prepared for it and then it's like...I thought he was trying to get a great renegotiation for The Apprentice. He wanted to lose the presidency. He don't want the job! Then when you win, you go, 'What the fuck?' So now I gotta be the President? "
Later in the interview, Colbert talks to 50 Cent about the many beefs from his career, to which the Power executive offers him some tips on how to ignite a feud for himself with the other late night talk show hosts, such as Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon. He even helps him start the feud for him by playfully bashing them live on the show.
"When they're really talented guys, you go, 'Man, fuck Jimmy Kimmel,'" 50 candidly says. "Especially when you No. 1 in that time slot. You gotta do that because you gotta create competition so you stay on your game."
