Oprah Confronts 50 Cent

Why'd You Name

Your Dog Oprah?

6/12/2012 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Oprah Winfrey
isn't stupid ... she knows 50 Cent named his dog 'Oprah' to diss the talk show queen after a recent feud ... and when the two sat down together, she totally called him out on it.

"I heard you have a dog named Oprah ... that was not a compliment," she said to the rapper.

Fiddy sheepishly replied, "I love you ... you know how they say a dog is a man's best friend?"

During the confrontation, part of Oprah's new show, "Next Chapter," ... 50 explained how he felt Oprah's famous campaign against the N-word and degradation of women in hip hop felt like a personal attack.

"I would see moments where you would discuss your feelings on the culture, and everything that was wrong with the culture was on my CD ... and I was like, 'She doesn't like me.' "

So why name the dog Oprah? 50 told her O-ness, "At the time, I was just looking at the situation and I saw I was developing negative feelings for someone who doesn't even know me."

50 said he also got a cat ... and named it Gayle.

But now, the hatchet appears to be buried ... and 50 even told Oprah he pampers the hell out of the animals ... even hiring a babysitter to take care of them while he's out of town.

Beef squashed.

I love Oprah. I watched the Paris Jackson interview, but turned and did not watch the 50 cent interview. To me, this guest choice reflected a lapse in her high standards.

I think Oprah should get a female dog and name it 50 Cent and then 50 Cent will be Oprah's bitch
