50 Cent and Ludacris are complaining that talk show diva Oprah Winfrey rarely invites rappers on her talk show.
"I think she caters to older white women," Fiddy said. "Oprah's audience is my audience's parents, so, I couldn't care less about Oprah or her show."
But, he added, Winfrey's disapproval might enhance a rap star's street cred. "I'm actually better off having friction with her."
Ludacris, aka Chris Bridges, also had the same thing to say about Oprah's views on rappers. He said in the May issue of GQ magazine that she was "unfair" to him during a show he appeared on last October with his co-stars from the movie "Crash".
"She edited out a lot of my comments while keeping her own in," he said. "Of course, it's her show, but we were doing a show on racial discrimination, and she gave me a hard time as a rapper, when I came on there as an actor."
"I don't see why people like Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle, who I am huge fans of, it's okay for them to go on 'Oprah.' They speak the same language as I do, but they do it through comedy, so I guess that's acceptable."
"I have an album coming out and I'm going to explain my side of the story that got edited out. You'll see what I'm saying," Luda said. He adds that he still respects the talk show host.
"I love Oprah. I love everything she's done for herself, she motivates me. I'm not gonna let her have it (on the album), I just want to try and change her views."
