50 Cent Shamefully Roasted TF Out Of Taraji P. Henson On Instagram...

And with help from Rick Ross' baby's mother.

Published August 23rd

Following the first 50 Cent versus Taraji P. Henson social media scuffle of 2016, the Power executive and actor seems to be squaring up for part two with the Empire actress.

It’s no secret that Taraji hasn’t been very fond of Fif’s Instagram jabbing at his former flame and arch Hollywood nemesis, Vivica A. Fox, who Taraji promptly jumped to the defense of against the Queens-bred rap icon. Smoke cleared between the two afterward as they kept their distance from one another after exchanging choice words over keyboards.

Hopefully, it stays that way even after Fiddy’s latest poke at the Golden Globe-winning screen star.

  1. Taraji kept herself and the rest of her Instagram followers amused with a hilarious MUA blunder

    She snapped the finished product of her beat face for Instagram, courtesy of celebrity makeup artist Ashunta Sheriff, which appeared rather ghostly due to the lighting in the room. “Hair and makeup is something huh?” Taraji wrote in the caption of the picture. “I think it’s the lighting. If not I was supposed to be the 6th of the 5.”

    When you get catfished by a #MUA 😂 #Taraji says it might be the lighting 😩

  2. After Taraji’s fans were through playfully roasting her, they apparently targeted Ashunta next for the makeup job…

    She didn’t find their complaints as humorous, though. Ashunta also made sure to show another, more appealing, photo of Taraji with the exact same makeup and hair from the exact same day, but with different lighting. The drastic difference is strikingly visible.

    “Lighting makes a major difference in how your makeup appears,” she wrote. “Taraji has a yellow undertone and in her trailer the lights are fluorescent. Where as in the #makeuptrailer the lights are natural light bulbs. Anyone who is a pro knows that fluorescent lighting will turn your skintone green and make you appear ashy.”

    She explained that she wasn’t going to address it at first, but she’s done Taraji’s makeup for a number of years, along with other celebrities, and her fun facts on lighting effects and makeup was important to point out. Oh, and “[she’s] been doing this over 20 years, [she’s gonna] say this don’t come for [her] job or [her] talent cause the work speaks for itself.”

    Today I got roasted by social media @theshaderoom @dcyoungfly and fans let me have it and even told @tarajiphenson to fire me... well same hair and makeup same day in these two pictures but let me explain to the novice #makeupartist out here in the social media world. Lighting makes a major difference in how your makeup appears. Taraji has a yellow undertone and in her trailer the lights are fluorescent. Where as in the #makeuptrailer the lights are natural light bulbs. Anyone who is a pro knows that fluorescent lighting will turn your skintone green and make you appear ashy. I’ve done Tarajis makeup for many many years in fact many celebrities and I was reluctant to address this but I decided it was necessary to teach you novice makeup artist and people who don’t know lighting whatsoever that it does affect how your makeup looks. Furthermore makeup for TV, red carpet, editorial, film etc are all different mediums and makeup reads differently depending on the format used, cameras, lighting, background, hair color, clothing etc. I’ve been doing this over 20 years so imma say this don’t come for my job or my talent cause the work speaks for itself. I’m so damn tired of people throwing stones and don’t even understand the technicalities involved when it comes to #makeup #hair or #fashion and be so quick to judge people’s work without knowing all the technicalities involved. We all have bad days but just so you trolls know this wasn’t one of them. Judge my work when you stand next to her in public and if she look ashy or green then come get at ya girl... f#&? Outta here... but @dcyoungfly you were funny we did laugh and thanks for treating the queen with #respect #tarajiphenson #KnowYourSh$$1st #clownasspeople #socialmediaamesssometimes #doyouhaveacareerNadontthinkso #20plusyearsinthegame #googlemebitches #blessed🙏🏾

  3. 50 Cent might have missed that part, though…

    And in usual Fiddy fashion, took his jeering to Instagram. “What the f**k is going on cookie, LOL,” he wrote in the now-deleted post. “Get the strap.” Tia Kemp, who has a Rick Ross rivalry in common with 50 and mothers one of the Miami rapper’s children, helped instigate the jabs as well.

    “I thought it was Michael Jackson,” she commented on 50’s post, preceded and followed by a series of crying-laughter face emojis.

    But we’d be careful. Real Empire fans know the D.C.-native can flip from Taraji to Cookie before you can flip the channel.
