Rapper 50 Cent Sympathizes with Sterling: Girl Friend Betrayed Him

“I couldn’t get past the concept of looking at an older man talking to a woman he’s in love with and making probably the biggest compromise ever, saying maybe, ‘If you like them, be with them. Sleep with them. Just don’t embarrass me,’” 50 Cent said in an interview with XXL.

"So some of the things he said following that were inappropriate, but he’s saying to you that there’s other people around that I’m being embarrassed by that think and feel the way I feel," he continued. "Now you’ve got one person that you’re pointing to, penalizing for that. He’s actually saying at that point, ‘Just don’t embarrass me,' meaning there’s other people that feel exactly like me here to be embarrassed by. I just watched it and I just saw a man being betrayed.”

Pretty impressive, given the nearly unanimous confused condemnation of Sterling.

Here's a 50 Cent video. One line in the song goes:
The true principles of life are supply and demand.
I have never heard supply and demand used in this context before.

  1. You do know that after reading the 48 Laws of Power, and loving it so much as a lot of it is very pertinent to the shark infested waters that is the music business, 50 Cent and Robert Greene collaborated on a book titled The 50th Law - 50 Cent is a savvy businessman.

  2. He analyzed the action within the context, seems like he understands the subjective nature of human action. Again this is my interpretation and his process of ratiocination might have been totally different from mine.

  3. I guessing Mrs Sterling felt the same about the girl friend as Mr Sterling felt about the girl friend's boy friends. I could be wrong. 50 cent video on EPJ, LOVE IT!! That I am sure of.
