So Hov's not afraid to speak his mind these days. After supporting his Rihanna, looks like he's got some words for Micheal Phelps too. According to the NY Daily News:

“You look at all these people who graduated from Princeton and Harvard, who are supposed to be pillars of the community — every day [they’re] in the newspaper arrested for some kind of financial fraud,” the Grammy winner told Cigar Aficionado magazine for his first-ever cover appearance. “Then you look at someone like Michael Phelps. He’s 23. What’s he gonna do? He’s a kid. He’s going to experiment.”

He went on to say, “They say there’s no honor among thieves — that’s not really true. When I was on the street . . . if you back on your word [out there], they don’t take you to court. You can cause yourself some real problems. When I first came into the music business, I’d have these conversations with executives and we’d shake hands on something, and the next time I saw them they’d say, ‘I never said that.’ So I’d say there’s no honor among businessmen.”
