50 Cent is jealous of Empire star Terrence Howard's light skin, according to Howard's Empire co-star Taraji P. Henson. 50 Cent, who produces a somewhat similar show on Starz called Power, has knocked the Lee Daniels-produced Empire for borrowing Power's style. Henson's response? "50 Cent is a comedian, he's a funny guy." Not the first--or second--impression most people have of 50 Cent.
Then Henson really got going. 50 Cent "is jealous of Terrence. Terrence is light-skinned, he's dark-skinned. C'mon, people," said the actress. Terrence Howard wanted no part of that characterization--he quickly chimed in saying 50 Cent wasn't jealous. "50 is my monster man," Howard proclaimed. "We were naked together," Howard said (referring to a scene in 50's movie Get Rich or Die Tryin'). Catch Empire on Fox on Wednesday nights.
