Rappers Have Beef with Oprah

Not everybody is a friend of Oprah.

More rappers are complaining about la Winfrey. Joining Ludacris and 50 Cent is Ice Cube, who goes off on O to FHM mag.

"I've been involved in three projects pitched to her, but I've never been asked to participate," says rapper/actor Ice Cube. "For Barbershop she had Cedric the Entertainer and Eve on, but I wasn't invited. Maybe she's got a problem with hip-hop… She's had damn rapists, child molesters and lying authors on her show. And if I'm not a rags-to-riches story for her, who is?"

Recently both Ludacris and 50 Cent griped about Oprah. Ludacris said he was treated unfairly on her show she he appeared with the Crash cast last fall; 50 Cent said that he had no interest in appearing on Oprah's show as she "caters to old white women" and doesn't like rappers.

Earlier this month, Oprah defended herself during an appearance on a radio program, saying: "I've been accused of not liking hip-hop, and that's just not true. I got a little 50 (Cent) on my iPod. I really do. Love "In Da Club." ... Love that, and you know, love Jay-Z, love Kanye [West], love Mary J. [Blige]."

Oprah has 50 on her iPod? That's like finding out your mother has been shopping at Forever 21 or has a page on MySpace. Either way, expect an episode on the subject.
