Curtis James Jackson III aka “50 Cent” covers the April/May edition of VIBE Magazine.
In a revealing Q&A with VIBE, Jackson addresses his controversial love life and admits he and late night talk show host Chelsea Handler are “friends” and so are he and Ciara.
If you recall, Fiddy and his ex-boo Ciara got into a “war of words” online a few months ago, and coincidentally it was around the same time the 36-year old rap mogul and talk show comedienne Chelsea Handler were rumored to be hot & heavy.
I’m sure those double-duty friendships can cause a lot of friction, but Fiddy reveals confidence is KEY to keeping a man like him interested.
Chelsea is confident. I think confidence is the sexiest thing about a person. She’s the kind of person that if you’re blessed with the opportunity to hang out with her, you’ll enjoy it.
I’m not sure you’ll look at her and actually want to jump over the table and fuck her, but you might. You would leave after talking with her feeling that she is a cool person.
Sounds like he’s smitten to me…
While admitting Chelsea is the best thing since white bread, when asked if they are still “friends,” Jackson admits:
I don’t speak to her as much as I did.
As for CiCi, Fiddy was asked about their Twitter blow up and reveals that she’s also a “friend” but the confirmed bachelor seemed confused about what exactly Ciara was expecting…
She’s a friend. She’s been a friend. You know? And it’s like, I don’t know what to expect of people. I’ve been surprised a lot.
You think you know what to expect out of people but…. I don’t know how I respond to that without being the bad guy.
Translation? CiCi was more involved in that “relationship” than he was…
But I digress.
As for that rumored “beef” with Dr. Dre over their competing line of custom headphones, Jackson says he sent THIS TWEET to spark a conversation about the matter, explaining:
I have a strong personality, a strong character. And I can be difficult to deal with at certain points because I’m vocal. If you upset Em, he’s just gonna not talk to you. You’re not going to get him in the next room you wanna get him in. With Dre, the same. He’s not comfortable with friction. That [tweet] is, “Hey look, I’m here. Is everybody still paying attention?” So they go, “Why he say that? Why he say we mad?” Then the meeting happens.
