Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson feels good about the success of his series, “Power,” which has reached an all-time high in Season 5. Did he know that the series would ever get this big? He takes readers back to the first season when the series was just coming to light.
Q: Why do you think that “Power” is so important to the fans?
50 CENT: When the series was created, it was about Ghost (Omari Hardwick) who had decided to go into the nightclub business. And even though the nightclub business was nowhere near as profitable as the drug business, his wife (Naturi Naughton) is like, “So what?”
Q: What do you want people to take from the show?
A: I want them to go on a journey with us. People are passionate for Team Angela or Team Tasha. Some people can’t get past the fact that he (Ghost) is married. When he was seeing Angela (Lela Loren) people were like “Get that side chick out of there. How dare he fall in love with her!” And for Ghost’s perspective, he was trying to get away from this life. That’s the only way you can forgive him because you know he doesn’t really want to be a part of this. What happens is that if someone is so close to you that they know everything about you. The new person only knows what you represent to her and it doesn’t necessarily have to be true. So, he was in a fantasy with Angela vs. the reality of what really existed with Tasha. And Tasha wanted him to stay in that limited space, a comfortable space. From a married woman’s perspective if the relationship is starting to seem completely different, she is going to say, “what’s going on?”
EDITOR’S NOTE: What do you think? Since Angela and Ghost still have reason to talk to each other, do you think they’ll start seeing each other or do you think that Tasha and Ghost will stick together for the sake of their family? Tweet @rightondigital1
