Ice Cube Says...

Voices keep growing louder to complain that Oprah Winfrey turns a deaf ear to rappers on her show.

Now joining Ludacris and 50 Cent is Ice Cube, who tells FHM magazine: "I've been involved in three projects pitched to her, but I've never been asked to participate."

The rapper-actor (real name: O'Shea Jackson), 36, says of his 2002 snub, "For Barbershop she had Cedric the Entertainer and Eve on, but I wasn't invited. Maybe she's got a problem with hip-hop."

Questioning Winfrey's booking policy, Cube also says: "She's had damn rapists, child molesters and lying authors on her show. And if I'm not a rags-to-riches story for her, who is?"

A spokesman for Harpo, Winfrey's production company, told the Associated Press that Winfrey would not respond directly to Ice Cube's remarks. Recently, 50 Cent (real name: Curtis Jackson), complained that Winfrey "caters to old white women" and rarely invites rappers on her show. Ludacris (real name: Chris Bridges) told GQ magazine that the media mogul was "unfair" to him during a show he appeared on last October with costars from Best Picture Oscar winner Crash.

1 I like Barbershop and it does seem odd that Ice Cube wasn't invited to the show since he was the main character. As for her scum-of-the-earth "guests", I won't watch those episodes.
