is risking the wrath of gay rights supporters following a controversial interview with PLAYBOY magazine.
The rapper is likely to follow in the footsteps of his mentor Eminem, has come under fire in the past for alleged anti-homosexual comments.
In the interview, 50 Cent is quoted as saying: “I ain’t into faggots, I don’t like gay people around me, because I’m not comfortable with what their thoughts are. I’m not prejudiced. I just don’t go with gay people and kick it – we don’t have that much in common. I’d rather hang out with a straight dude.”
He added: “But women who like women, that’s cool.”
According to MTV News, the comments came after 50 Cent admitted that his mother was bisexual.
“It’s OK to write that I’m prejudiced,” he said. “This is as honest as I could possibly be with you. When people become celebrities they change the way they speak. But my conversation with you is exactly the way I would have a conversation on the street. We refer to gay people as f****ts, as h**os. It could be disrespectful, but that’s the facts.”
Also in the interview, 50 Cent tells of the first time he ever shot someone, discusses the times he has been shot as well as revealing plans to build a community centre for children.
