50 Cent Makes Penny Comment about Jill Scott; Kelly Price Talks Body Image

50 Cent Makes A Penny Comment

In the world of social media negativity another celebrity has shown an ugly side.

Perhaps, you’ve read how 50 made an unnecessary comment about Jill Scott’s recent weight loss and compared her to a lousy station wagon.

Trust me when I say it’s challenging to lose weight and Jill is looking pretty fabulous these days as a woman renewing and redefining her personal brand.

The bigger question truly is the images of beauty which society has perpetuated for years: skinny/emaciated versus healthy-looking (the average American woman is a size 10). As you watch videos or the big screen it’s rare to see a curvaceous woman being celebrated by a lead male singer or actor. And you ask why our girls have issues as it relates to beauty?

  1. This is just crazy. Not funny 50cent. Take away a quarter of your brain and you just have 25 cents – but really looking like a penny.

    Good job Karen.

  2. I agree, great post and it really shows 50’s immaturity!

    It’s a sad commentary. I mean he went out of his way to be mean. But, I never expect much from the 50 cents of the world.

  4. 50, you are one of my favorite artist. I always quote you during my lectures at the prison I work at. I am a beautiful plus size sister. but beauty comes in all shapes and it is in the eyes of the beholder. Just don’t hate on us. It’s okay if you prefer small women. Beauty radiates from the inside and Jill Scott and Kelly Price are beautiful and both have a beautiful spirit. 50, what is a beautiful woman to you?

  5. Leona,

    I agree that it’s a sad commentary on how celebrities use their platform to do the ‘wrong’ thing. Thanks for commenting.

  6. I agree, beauty speaks for itself and radiates from the inner to the outer. Maryam, I do believe that beauty is subjective; however, 50’s approach and comment was purely shallow and misplaced.
