Gabrielle Union Isn’t Competing w/ 50 Cent
Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson is gunning for the number slot on BET. The competitive rapper, actor and producer is making it his mission to ensure his new BET show, 50 Central, will be the number one show for the network. He recently took to social media, apparently taking aim at “Empire”, writing:
Remember that other show that thought they were in competition with POWER, what happened to it? I don’t hear anyone talking sh*t anymore. ?Now I’m gonna take over BET. LOL #50Centralbet
Gabrielle Union, who stars on BET’s Being Mary Jane, responded to his post writing:
I don’t compete with other artists, only celebrate. Enough space for all of us to succeed. Cheers to #Power and cheers to creative folks uplifting each other. All our programming could use more shine, so I opt to uolift [sic]. I know that celebrating other folks in no way dims my shine. Keep shining @50 Cent.
