  1. someone must be having a death wish! 50cents is on record for saying he can’t stand gays…

  2. In a wide-ranging interview with Playboy magazine, 50 Cent has let his feelings on homosexuality be known, in language sure to draw the ire of gay-rights supporters.

    “I ain’t into f—-ts,” 50 says in an interview in the April issue of Playboy, which hits stands Friday. “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. But women who like women, that’s cool.”

    Spaghetti is straight til you put it in hot water luvs….

  4. How is he Canadian!!!

    You do know who his dad is PN?

    Loudon Snowden Wainwright III (born September 5, 1946) is an American songwriter, folk singer, humorist, and actor. He is the father of musicians Rufus Wainwright, Martha Wainwright and Lucy Wainwright Roche, brother of Sloan Wainwright, and the former husband of the late folk singer Kate McGarrigle.

  5. ‘i iz gonna shank u faggit’ will probably be the only response from 50 cent

  6. nice fantasy rufus. would be good for gay rights if he was. but 50cent aint gay. rufus’ll be telling us next that eminem is fiddy’s boyfreind. 50cent did catch his mom kissing another women tho, so maybe its in his genes?

  7. Boy George also said that Gavin Rossdale, Gwen Stefani’s husband had dated the British singer Marilyn earlier in his career. Everyone can say anything, but everyone must show proof before, or it didn’t happen, no matter how much we want it.

  8. “I ain’t into f****ts…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.”

    Yet he was “comfortable” enough to publicise his music on The Graham Norton show in 2009. At that point I imagine he was less concerned with what Graham’s “thoughts” were, and more interested in gullible f****ts” lining his wallet. Any psychologist worth their brass could tell him he has more “in common” with gay people than he’d ever care to admit. I was actually shocked the BBC – let alone Graham Norton – allowed this moron on the programme. At the time, the general gay consensus on Twitter was that he couldn’t POSSIBLY be homophobic because of his dear ol’ lesbian momma. Sometimes we deserve to be fleeced by anti-gay hypocrites (that, and I can’t believe we’re actually being told we’re unworthy by someone who promotes violence and gang culture, degrades and exploits women, brags about being shot, calls himself “Fiddy” – and don’t get me started on the music!)

    Good on Rufus for calling him out. Let’s “kick it” now shall we, duckie?

    Thanks to zefrog for the (priceless) quote.

  9. You guys are stupid!

    Just because 50 Cent makes nasty homophobic comments doesn’t mean that he is not gay.

    Note: I’m not saying that he is gay; I’m just saying that it is stupid to rule it out on the sole basis that he makes homophobic comments. In fact, oen could argue that such comments suggest otherwise – internalised homophobia and et cetera.

  10. it seems his homophobic comments have made him more attractive to rufus while I would be insulted. weirdo

  11. “Boy George also said that Gavin Rossdale, Gwen Stefani’s husband had dated the British singer Marilyn earlier in his career.”

    That is true actually.

  12. Yeah amd boy george turned him straight!

    Isn’t it obvious Rufus was just trying to tease Fiddy?

  14. Rufus is a total munt. I can’t think of a more one-dimensional person than him. His whole being revolves around being gay, whether it be belting out Judy standards *shudder* or “outing” other people, any chance he could discuss something other than the colour pink?

  15. ” “Boy George also said that Gavin Rossdale, Gwen Stefani’s husband had dated the British singer Marilyn earlier in his career.”

    That is true actually. ”

    Really ? Because Rossdale himself denied it, and usually I don’t consider a person gay if the person keeps denying it. Like Liberace and J. Edgar Hoover.

  16. Is there a lack of news or something?

  17. I could have sworn that headline said “Rufus Wainwright claims 50 percent are gay.”

    Damn. Wishful thinking I guess.

  18. @ Abi1975 — April 13, 2010 @ 18:11… Rufus is Canadian (despite his American father) because his mother was Canadian, and he was *born* in Canada. (Actually, I believe he’s a dual citizen, now.)
