G-Unit’s 50 Cent has lowered his tough guy guard and opened up to television mogul Oprah Winfrey as seen in new sneak peeks from his upcoming “Next Chapter” interview.
In one segment, Fif discusses just how close of a relationship he has with his grandmother.
“I love my grandmother, my grandfather,” Fif says when asked who he loves. “She’s the one, my grandmother. Like, my grand daddy, I love him too but he gets mad at me — it’s a different thing with my grandmother. I’ve always had a connection with her. I used to sit there and rub on her foot, her feet and stuff like that — even paint her toenails. Yeah. I can paint a toenail like we in the nail shop. I’ll do that for her because her feet swell up. [laughs] Yeah, she’ll tell you, I’ve been doing it for years.” (“Oprah’s Next Chapter”)
Another sneak peek features Mr. Jackson analyzing the concept of death.
“I’m not afraid of dying. I’ve accepted that I’m not in control,” Fif added. “When you have that type of situation take place or happen to you and you don’t have an answer, you go to a concept of your higher power and say there’s a plan for you. … I used to have issues with the plane, when it’d get ready to take off, [I’d pray]. Either pray or worry, don’t do both. … If you’re going to sit there, say a prayer, and ‘then’ worry about it? How does God feel about you? He knows you’re sitting there worrying.” (“Oprah’s Next Chapter”)
This week, Winfrey hinted at her conversation with the G-Unit boss.
“”@CrusePhoto: @Oprah Where are you today?” in NYC getting ready to Interview “Fiddy”. Took sunset photo yesterday . Thought of u.,” she tweeted June 6th.
“Just leaving Fiddy’s house ..what a great conversation.. http://instagr.am/p/Li665HSS-h/ “
“@MastinKipp can you believe the Fiddy meditates? He was so calm. And charming!” (Oprah Winfrey’s Twitter)
