LINK: 50 Cent On MTV’s Censorship
In a new interview with MTV, 50 Cent vents his frustration about the network's unfair cencorship policies. Namely, he's upset about the fact that Britney Spears can begin her single by saying "It's Britney, Bitch," while a rapper like 50 is not allowed to say the B-word. He said:
"I guess they have their rules that apply individually to each artist separately: 'Oh no, he can't say that, 'cause he feels like that about that person,' " he said. "But it's not a rule that applies to everybody else. Matter of fact, my next single, I'm going to start it [with], 'It's Britney, bitch!'"
MTV also made 50 change the name of his new single from "I'll Still Kill" to "I Still Will," which he also felt was a double standard:
"It's [renamed] 'I Still Will' for MTV," he added. "It's amazing because right after that [video plays], they'll have a group on TV called the Killers. There's always more pressure on hip-hop music. It's the stepchild of entertainment. ... In fact, my new project with Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Donnie Wahlberg will be out April 12th called 'Righteous Kill.' Nobody has a problem with that, but 'I'll Still Kill' is the wrong title for a song. It's easier to fight one CD, one artist at a time — that's really what they're doing."
