Fucking Liars: 50 Cent Edition

50 Cent: rapper, actor, flavored water angel investor, and FUCKING LIAR. From NPR:

A Grand Rapids’ movie theater rolled out the red carpet Wednesday night to benefit Michigan’s burgeoning film industry. New York rapper, turned movie star Curtis Jackson, know more commonly as 50-cent, held a special premier of his new movie in Grand Rapids. Jackson signed autographs, took pictures with fans and introduced an early screening of his new movie “Gun”. Jackson says he obviously thinks lawmakers should keep the film incentives; he’s considering buying a home in Grand Rapids.

“A lot of people in Los Angeles are just being made aware of (the film incentives) and started to move things here when the crews, 60% of the crew is from Grand Rapids. You know so it makes sense. It’s actually creating jobs in Grand Rapids.”

Jackson was discovered in 2002 by Detroit rapper Marshal Mathers, known commonly as Emimen. But its Grand Rapids that 50-cent is falling in love with. His new action thriller “Gun” is one of 4 films he’s worked on in town. “I love Grand Rapids,” Jackson said, “it’s quiet enough to be able to get my work done.” The city is easily recognizable in the movie trailer.

As someone who was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and whose grandparents still live there, I can assure you that 50 Cent is NOT thinking about buying a home there! What a fucking liar! And what a WEIRD lie! Why would you even say that? Who is that supposed to impress? Even the people of Grand Rapids are like “It’s OK, 50 Cent, no one expects you to actually live here. What are you even talking about?” That being said, I hope he DOES move to Grand Rapids. And I hope he takes Chelsea Handler with him. She would fit right in there. They could get married in the Meijer sculpture garden. “I love the Meijer sculpture garden, it’s quiet enough for me to get married to Chelsea Handler in.” Sure, 50 Cent. Whatever you say, 50 Cent.
