Morning Perks: 50 Cent, Lil Wayne & Bobby Brown
Feb 04 | by Natasha
50 Cent has been named the 2nd richest African American Entertainer by Forbes magazine. The criteria Forbes used to rank folks isn't really that clear, but it seems like it could be based off '08's earnings only. He made an estimated $150 million thanks to more Vitamin Water sales and other business ventures. He's second behind Oprah and ranks ahead of Tyler Perry and others. Maybe Rick Ross' baby mama should have asked him for some stock options instead of those Gucci shoes and fur. Just sayin'... Bobby Brown is speaking out about his pregnant girlfriend Alicia Etheridge. He tells People, that he's "really excited about the new addition" and his lawyers say they're happy because he's actually sober and clean. I guess that's a cause to celebrate. Congrats to Bobby and Alicia. Katie Couric hit up "Regis and Kelly" today and spoke about her Pre-Grammy interview special (airing tonight) with Lil Wayne. She admitted that she was scared of him. Until he said "Ms. Katie, I'm a gangster." She says the fact he called her "Ms. Katie" and was so nice and polite, she loosened up. Ha. By the way, she dished that Weezy owns his own line of bowling balls and bowling gloves--that's why they chose bowling as their interview activity.
