Rufus Wainwright knows 50 Cent is gay

It’s been too long since we’ve had a hip-hop feud worth caring about—unless you count Ice-T telling Aimee Mann to “eat a hot bowl of dicks” on Twitter, which we don’t—so with any luck, the May issue of Details will get us through the summer: In an interview promoting his new album, singer Rufus Wainwright talks about his love for The Real Housewives Of Orange County and Keeping Up With the Kardashians, before admitting he has a weakness for 50 Cent, saying: “I think he's just the sexiest, and a brilliant writer. And I know he's gay.” Naturally, the interviewer presses for specific reasons as to why Wainwright suspects 50 Cent might be so effervescent and carefree, to which Wainwright offered this response:

“That cute little voice of his. It's okay, 50 Cent. Feel free to call me anytime. My boyfriend and I are experts. You can come over for dinner. And maybe dessert.”


Oh please please please let this snowball into a full-on war, complete with diss tracks and Swizz Beatz-produced remix parodies of “My Phone’s On Vibrate,” and Wainwright doing cabaret versions of “Candy Shop,” and so on and so on. After all, you have both have albums to sell. [HT to AllHipHop.com]
