50 Cent is nothing if not self-ware.
Always a more complex individual than you might think, the star has grown morose lately, at least according to dispatches sent out over his Twitter account.
“I don’t think I’m gonna live much longer,” Fiddy told his nearly 5.5 million followers. Well, that doesn't sound uplifting. His rationale for such a statement?
”I’m good if I die tonight," he said, although he went on to assure fans in a later tweet that he's alright: “To be conscious that life is short is not suicidal.”
Shortly before that, 50 had lamented, “I have lost all the faith in the team I’m on,” alluding to the troubles he and his label Interscope have been having.
“I have nothing left to say. I will not be promoting my music.”
That and Chelsea Handler reportedly shot him down. Brutal!
Of course, Mr. Cent, who “took 25 cent water and sold it for $2” as VitaminWater, does have a new entrepreneurial pursuit: his new six-hour energy drink, Street King!
Suck it, Five Hour Energy. And cheer up, 50.
