Ice Cube Joins Rap Attack On Oprah

Ice Cube has joined Ludacris and 50 CENT as the latest rapper to attack US media mogul Oprah Winfrey for her apparent dislike for hip-hop stars. Ludacris publicly criticised Winfrey for the way she treated him when he appeared on her talk show as a member of the cast of Oscar-winning movie Crash, and the TV host has since become a target for rap's top stars. Ludacris, real name Chris Bridges, was stunned when Winfrey took time out of the cast interview to criticise him for his lyrics and then reportedly spent time with the rapper after the show trying to show him the error of his ways. And now rapper-turned-movie mogul Ice Cube has opened fire on Winfrey, accusing her of refusing to interview him when he was trying to promote hit comedy Barbershop. He tells men's magazine FHM, "I've been involved in three projects pitched to her, but I've nEver been asked to participate. "For Barbershop, she had Cedric The Entertainer and EVE on, but I wasn't invited. Maybe she's got a problem with hip-hop. "She's had damn rapists, child molesters and lying authors (James Frey) on her show. And, if I'm not a rags-to-riches story for her, who is?"
