Well, this is a surprising turn of events — Actually, nothing 50 Cent does is surprising anymore.

After complaining, criticizing and accusing “Empire” of copying his show “Power”, it looks like 50 Cent has had a change of heart and will be taking his talents to the competition. While at the premiere for FOX’s new drama the show’s director/producer Lee Daniels revealed that Fiddy was full of it! “Oh 50 he didn’t even seen the show,” Daniels told HipHollywood, “I just talked to him … two weeks ago, he said he was going to come guest star.”

But, the rapper isn’t the only surprising guest star on the highly anticipated show. Naomi Campbell, Raven-Symone, V. Bozeman, Estelle, Derek Luke, Tasha Smith and more will make an appearance on Empire — hell, even Oprah may stop by. “Oprah said it redefines television. I said well come on and guest star on my show then and shut up,” Lee revealed to HH.

Academy Award nominees and Hustle and Flow co-stars Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard lead the stellar cast of actors who showed up for the Hollywood premiere Tuesday night. Check out our interviews (above) and make sure you watch the debut of Empire, Wednesday, January 7th at 9pm on FOX.

Dwyane Wade On New Heartfelt Documentary: It’s A Story “I Never Got A Chance To Tell As A Kid”

Published

It’s been an epic week for Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union.

It first started with one of the biggest trades of the year with Wade returning back to Miami to finish the rest of the season with the Heat. “I was happy,” Wade told us on Thursday night about the trade.

He added, “The journey of the NBA took me to Chicago, it took me to Cleveland, but it also brought me back to Miami; a place from a basketball sense birthed me.”

Days following the big NBA announcement, the lovebirds then celebrated the release of Dwyane’s documentary, Shot in the Dark, which the NBA champion produced alongside Chance the Rapper.

The film follows the Orr Academy High School basketball team on Chicago’s Westside. Throughout the documentary, cameras capture the journey of individual athletes trying to make it to the NBA despite growing up in the violent streets of Chicago.

During the screening, Wade also opened up to HipHollywood about why the project was near and dear to his heart. “It’s home,” the Chicago native said. “I jumped on board right away because it’s a story being told that I never got a chance to tell as a kid. To be able to shed some positive light on a tough, dark situation for us was big.”

Union added, “I’m so proud. Coming up on Hoop Dreams … It explores so many other topics that are critical to kids in Chicago.”

As for whether or not D-Wade picked up some advice from his TV star boo, not quite. When asked what tips Union gave Wade ahead of the project, the actress told us, “None. You have to learn. Humility and school of hard knocks. Things are not going to go your way and you have to learn through experience just like the rest of us.”

Check out the documentary on February 24 on Fox Sports.
