Rapper 50 Cent thinks Oprah Winfrey "started out with black women's views but has been catering to middle-aged women white American women for so long that she's become one herself," he says in the January issue of Elle magazine, excerpts of which were printed in the New York Post Thursday.
"I think the idea of being publicly noted that she's a billionaire makes (black women) interested in seeing her views. But it's even more exciting to the demographic of white American women she's been aiming at to see that she has the exact same views that they have," he says.
This isn't he first time the rapper has bashed the media mogul. In an interview with The Associated Press earlier this year, he complained that Winfrey rarely invites rappers on her talk show: "I think she caters to older white women." (source)

I'm lying. But it could happen dammit and you know it.
TMZ has learned that "30 Rock" star Tracy Morgan was busted for drunk driving early this morning in New York.
Police sources tell TMZ the comedian/actor was stopped at 4:38 AM in Manhattan after cops noticed he was driving erratically. According to the police report, Morgan "was unable to maintain a position in a lane of traffic."
Edison Alban, spokesperson for the Manhattan D.A.'s office, tells TMZ that Morgan told cops he was drinking beer at a club before he was pulled over.
Morgan was taken to the 33rd Precinct and charged with Driving While Intoxicated and Operating a Motor Vehicle While Impaired.
This is Morgan's second drunk driving arrest. He's currently on probation in Los Angeles for a D.U.I. conviction. The latest arrest could constitute a violation of Morgan's probation and, as a result, he could face jail time in both L.A. and New York.
Morgan's rep was not immediately available for comment. (source)

Bebe Moore Campbell, who penned several best-sellers including Brothers and Sisters and What You Owe Me as well as articles for The New York Times and The Washington Post, died Monday. She was 56.
Campbell died at home in Los Angeles from complications due to brain cancer, said publicist Linda Wharton Boyd. She was diagnosed with the disease in February.
"My wife was a phenomenal woman who did it her way," husband Ellis Gordon Jr. said in a statement. "She loved her family and her career as a writer.
Her books, most of which were fiction based on real-life stories, touched on racial and social divides while including the perspective of many ethnic groups.
One of her first novels, Your Blues Ain't Like Mine, was published in 1992 and spanned a 40-year period dealing with prejudice in the United States. The book earned her an NAACP Image Award for literature.
She followed the book with Brothers and Sisters, which focused on race relations in the corporate world after the 1992 Los Angeles riot.
Among her other novels were Singing in the Comeback Choir, What You Owe Me and 72 Hour Hold, the latter dealing with a mother coping with her daughter's bipolar disorder. (source)

Hell hath no fury like a baby mama scorned.
Nas's ex is raking her acrylics over the rapper and his wife, Kelis, in a new tell-all book, "It's No Secret."
Carmen Bryan says he beat her, cheated on her, cut her child support, and then invited her for a threesome with the "Milkshake" singer, just before they married.
And you think your boyfriend has lousy foreplay.
Not that the self-described "hip-hop Helen of Troy" stayed home watching Oprah when her man was away. She found time to entertain Jay-Z and Allen Iverson while dating Nas.
She claims he beat her "with a closed fist" after finding out about one fling. In turn, she "pulled out my pepper spray from my back pocket and sprayed Nas down like he was some rabid pit bull," when he cheated.
Miz Bryan also claims Kelis doesn't wear deodorant, Jay-Z scrubs his butt in the shower (doesn't everyone?), and Nas once turned down a date with Beyonce because, he said, "to be honest, I can't take her breath."
