50 Cent Refuses To Star With Other Rappers In Films

Published by Runteldat on Wednesday, April 20, 2011 at 12:25 am.

50 Cent has been honing his acting chops for years, working with coaches and learning as much as he can from co-stars like Robert De Niro, Terrence Howard and Al Pacino. In fact, he’s so serious that he won’t star in a film with a bunch of other rappers.

He tells VIBE magazine, “It’s not my job to lend credibility to so-and-so rapper who’s just coming into the business.”

It’s a plan that seems to be working, as 50 currently has a slate of films in development – including Setup with Bruce Willis, Lives of the Saints with Meg Ryan and Freelancers with Forest Whitaker.

Diddy is Hip-Hop’s Wealthiest Artist

Published by Dior Noir on Friday, March 11, 2011 at 3:00 pm.

We can all dispute which rapper runs the game, but when it comes to the money the numbers don’t lie: according to Forbes latest earnings list Diddy is stacking more paper than anyone. (Take that, Take that, Take that!)

Diddy is number one on “The Forbes Five: Hip-Hop’s Wealthiest Artists” list and racked in $475 million last year, “fueled by his interests in Sean John clothing, Bad Boy Worldwide record label and, most significantly, his Diageo joint-venture vodka brand Ciroc.”  Jay-Z didn’t do so bad for himself at $450 million and was also upgraded to the top of Forbes’ list for Top Earning Celebrity Couples thanks to Beyonce’s earning power.

Rounding out the top five is Dr. Dre who came in several millions behind Diddy and Jay at $125 million, 50 Cent and Cash Money’s Birdman both brought in $100 million.

Why is the list so small compared to some of Forbes’ others? They explained, ”though other hip-hop artists including Lil Wayne, Pharrell Williams, Rick Ross and others — not to mention pop sensation Bruno Mars, who penned Travie McCoy’s hit song “Billionaire” — frequently speak of ten-figure desires, we kept our list to five because of the lack of information available on the fortunes under $100 million.”
Next time we hear all the rappers bragging about the Benjamins we know who’s really running it!

50 Cent Names Pets Oprah and Gayle

Published by Runteldat on Friday, February 11, 2011 at 12:00 am.

50 Cent donned a suit and upped the humor on a recent appearance on Conan.

The rapper and budding black Steven Seagal chatted it up with Conan O’Brien about a variety of topics.

The comments that stuck up most, though, were the ones related to Oprah Winfrey and Gayle King.

50 says he enjoys with flirting with Oprah’s BFF, but then revealed that he citied them for inspiration behind naming his pets.

He named his dog and cat Oprah and Gayle.

50 told Conan:

“At first I thought Oprah Winfrey didn’t like hip-hop, so I didn’t like her and I hadn’t had a chance to meet her, so I felt it was wrong to hate someone that you hadn’t had a chance to meet. So I bought the dog, so now I love Oprah. She listens to me and everything.”

He noted that he thinks Gayle is “great,” and gave her “the look.” He told Conan, “You know she like them bad boys.”

Hopefully Oprah has a sense of humor, otherwise I imagine the sky will soon fall right on top of 50 Cent’s head. You don’t anger the queen.

50 Cent and Floyd Mayweather Shoot For Reality Show

Published by Runteldat on Monday, January 31, 2011 at 8:30 am.

It seems BFFs Floyd Mayweather and 50 Cent are trying to get their Katy Perry and Rihanna on, only for all the world to see on reality TV.

Now that they’ve announced that they’re working together on film projects, the two also want to develop a show based on their friendship.

Via Page Six:

Floyd “Money” Mayweather and 50 Cent are eyeing reality TV. They announced at Sundance that they’d partner on movie projects through Fitty’s Cheetah Vision Films and Mayweather’s Mayweather Films, but also told us they want to develop a reality show centered around their friendship. Mayweather was featured in VH1’s “What Chilli Wants” as a love interest of Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas of pop group TLC. Fitty’s and Mayweather’s first film will be “Tomorrow Today,” based on one of the rapper’s first screenplays.

This could be interesting. Could be.

Did Chelsea Handler Break 50 Cent’s Heart?

Published by Runteldat on Friday, January 28, 2011 at 11:50 am.

Us Weekly is claiming that the real reason you don’t see Chelsea Handler hanging around with 50 Cent much anymore was that she dumped him and left him “heartbroken.”

A source told them that 50 was spotted “canoodling” with Handler in October and by Christmas was “sending her gifts, but she sent them back. She put a note on one that said, ‘I can buy my own gifts.’”

This sounds like a line from the next male bashing R&B song.

Anyway, though they were both at the Sundance Film Festival Chelsea was too busy getting it in with her new man.

All of this sounds about as true as Don Imus’ love of black hair care.

50 Cent has finally addressed directly whether or not he’s dating comedian and talk show host, Chelsea Handler.

And surprise, surprise he’s saying relatively the same thing as Chelsea on the matter.

While speaking to Access Hollywood, Curtis got checked about Chelsea.

In response, 50 said, “We’re just good friends?”

When followed up with why Chelsea has discussed him so much in recent months, 50 noted, “Cause we’re friends. That would be a good reason to talk about me.”

Friends love friends who helped generate press for them.

50 Cent May Face SEC Investigation Over Tweets

Published by Runteldat on Friday, January 14, 2011 at 11:50 am.

In a ‘next time, shut up’ report, it appears 50 Cent may face future troubles over recent tweets he made last weekend.

The rapper and budding Black Steven Seagal was boastful (bragging [redacted] Negro) about the $8.7 million he gained after encouraging his Twitter followers to invest in a money-losing penny stock.

And now he might catch the clap back from the SEC.

Via Fox 411:

Last weekend, 50, born Curtis Jackson, reportedly Tweeted to his 3.8 million followers, “You can double your money right now. Just get what you can afford” and “They are no joke get in now” about H&H Imports, previously a money-loser with a reported deficit of at least $3.3 million.

 

Jackson reportedly received 30 million shares of H&H stock in a private placement last October. H&H owns TV Goods, a direct response marketing founded by infomercial guru Kevin Harrington.

 

H&H closed at 39 cents on Monday, up 29 cents, netting Jackson’s shares the aforementioned $8.7 million.

 

“There are very strict guidelines as to what a person can do in terms of possibly manipulating the value of a stock,” financial expert and 60-Minute Money Workout author Ellie Kay tells FOX411. “I don’t think it would be a huge surprise to anyone if 50 Cent were investigated for what he did.”

 

On the SEC’s web site, a list for common violations that could lead the government agency to conduct an  investigation include “manipulating the market prices of securities.”

 

When contacted by FOX411, an SEC rep had no comment on whether or not Jackson was under investigation.

 

“We can neither confirm nor deny” an investigation is taking place, the rep said.

Curtis, I suggest you hit Martha Stewart on the hip for some quick advice.

Chelsea Handler Can’t Handle Dating 50 Cent

Published by Runteldat on Monday, January 10, 2011 at 11:50 am.

She’s been linked to him for months now, but Chelsea Handler swears she is not dating 50 Cent.

According to her, she couldn’t handle dating the ever-talkative rapper.
Via Us Weekly:

“People still think we’re dating? No! Really?” she asked Us. “He’s sweet, though. I love him, but we’re not dating.”

Not that Handler hasn’t done her part to fuel relationship rumors: after 50 Cent was spotted hanging out backstage at her Newark, NJ stand-up show, she tweeted a photo of herself in bed with the 35-year-old rapper in December.

She says she’s not dating him, but I imagine she’ll keep playing along with the rumors for as long as she can.

Ciara Calls 50 Cent Her ‘Best Friend’

Published by Dior Noir on Tuesday, December 14, 2010 at 3:00 pm.

Umm who knew Ciara and 50 Cent were besties?

That’s what she said when she hit The Wendy Williams Show yesterday. Of course Wendy was trying to get the tea on whether or not CiCi and Curtis are dating (we still half believe he’s getting it in with Chelsea Handler) or if they had ever dated and here’s what your girl had to say:

“Well, that’s like my best friend – he’s been my best friend for years, so it’s definitely positive energy there. And that’s pretty much the situation.”

Hmmmm….and you say he’s just a friend? We’re not sure if that friendship comes with benifits but Ciara claims they never dated and she’s solo at the moment.

“I am single. I haven’t really had the chance to date over the years, from my relationship with [Bow Wow], so I really just want to take my time – because that’s what it is about.”

Chelsea Handler Continues To Play With 50 Cent Dating Rumors

Published by Runteldat on Tuesday, December 14, 2010 at 12:00 am.

Yesterday, Chelsea Handler started her morning helping perpetuate the rumor that she is dating 50 Cent.

She uploaded the following picture with the caption, “I don’t know why anyone thinks I would ever date a rapper.”

I don’t know why she’s still dragging this thing out for sport. If she’s dating 50, good for her. If she’s not dating 50, good for her.

Will she hurry up and confirm or deny and move on with a new gag?
