Why 50 Cent Named His Dog Oprah

"Let me ask you, I heard you have a dog named Oprah," she says in the episode, airing Sunday at 9 p.m. on the OWN Network. "I consider that a compliment, whether you meant it to be one or not."
While 50 Cent at first deflects her inquiries, saying, "I was just looking for real cute names for pets," and admitting he also has a cat named Gayle, he later reveals the reasons behind naming his schnauzer after the star.
"At the time I was just looking at the situation and I saw I was developing negative feelings for someone who doesn't even know me," he says. "I gave it to the dog because I was excited about the dog."
Though his feelings have since changed for the talk show host, 50 Cent does acknowledge he's gotten into trouble for some of the comments he's made through dog Oprah's Twitter account.
"I say crazy stuff on Twitter," he says. "It made an impact because it was associated with me saying it to you."
