‘Elevating Kanan’ Actress Patina Miller Responds To 50 Cent After He Compares Her Character To Cookie Lyon
By now we know that 50 Cent does not miss when it comes to his television and film projects. His latest show “Power Book III: Raising Kanan” premiered on Starz last month, and the show has been getting great reviews from fans of the “Power” franchise.
On Tuesday, 50 took to Instagram to speak about the amazing work of actress Patina Miller, who plays Raquel Thomas, the mother of Kanan on the new scripted series. The show is a prequel based on 50 Cent’s “Power” character Kanan Stark.
He said, “You know I don’t miss nothing @patinamiller knocking Cookie sh*t out the box. Empire who, how, where? LOL.”
Now fans know in the past 50 Cent has been critical of the former Fox hit series “Empire,” which starred Taraji P. Henson as Cookie Lyon. He would quite often compare the show to the stars hit series “Power,” which he starred on, and also served as a producer. Nonetheless, some folks have always looked at his comments as a marketing tatic when it came to promoting the show.
Following 50’s comment, Patina commented back and said, “Normally, I wouldn’t comment, but I feel it’s necessary…both of these characters are strong af. I love that queen and look up to her! I do think both characters can co-exist and one doesn’t have to be ‘better’ than the other…Lift them both up!! Thank you for your support always @50Cent.”
50 then responded to Patina’s comments and said, “I’m the only one comparing you and Taraji P. Henson to make people see you that way. Taraji crazy a** put in a lot of work, it takes a lot of time to get in the hearts and minds of an audience like that. You over there on some black women power sh*t.”
Some people believe the whole comment exchange was just another method to help promote the show as its success continues to climb.
