50 Cent/Bette Midler Duet In The Works?

50 Cent will join one of his unlikeliest of friends — singer Bette Midler —for the eight annual Restoration Project spring picnic in New York City on May 19, according to E! Online.

The pair first joined forces late last year for the opening of “The Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson Community Garden” in the rapper’s Queens hometown, a living classroom for neighborhood students to learn about how food grows. Spearheaded by Midler’s Restoration organization, 50 funded the project without any reservations. “He never asked how much,” Midler said. “He just said, ‘Where do I sign?’

“The next collabo between the “little Jewish lady and the great big rapper,” as Midler describes their union, could come in the studio. “I was hoping we’d sing songs from the Depression, but he’s so young that I don’t think he knows any of them,” Midler joked. “I’m going to have to check things out and see what he feels like singing.”

“He’s such a doll,” she added about 50. “I love him. He’s gorgeous.” - Devin Chanda

    Yo Pierzy,
    That was just a ploy to get the respect of the young fans. Hate on something popular then wind up doing it yourself because it sells.

    • Pierzy

      Totally agree…that’s what makes it ironic.

      well I haven’t heard of it before.

      I smell a Negro Please!!!

      @ P & Mac: I was amongst those fans who wanted to see Ja ethered & finding it quite amusing to see 50 doin’ so, especially after Irv Gotti’s blackballin’ of a dude tryin’ to eat.

      I felt like I got played because when Ja first came out on Mic Geronimo’s tape, The Natural, he was raw, spittin’ alongside Jay & DMX.
      They did it again with “Murdergram” then he did “Holla Holla”, which I took as an attempt of selling records (which not bad since selling CD’s is a business).
      I bought his 1st album, heard him sing off-key on most of the songs, so much, that I had to take it back for a refund.

      Now 50 is the one doin’ that sissy shit, shirtless and all, WTF!? Hypocrite!

    I don’t what to say. All I know is if he ever decided to beef with anyone his rivals would have a field day with this.

  • BeerGangsta

    Don’t waste your time on this Bitch 50. Do something else with ya’ll time. I would not go see this Porch Bitch Perform never. I always left his CDS in the store. Where they belong.

    I think she was just joking around, or the writer used some “creative license” to do the write up. I just don’t see them recording any material together. Wouldn’t make sense.

    Although Wayne has a song with Madonna, so who knows?

    Next, DMX feat. Clay Aiken
    Gucci Mane feat. Miley Cyrus

  • $ykotic

    Does anyone even care that this is for the kids?

    Teaching and showing them how to grow food? I’ll find something else to hate on him for.

    This is cool.

    • Smoke one

      I agree with $ykotic this man has made millions and is giving back to his community. Alot of stars forget where they came from, but not 50 he continues to give back to the place he use to call home. The said part about this is you 50 haters are hating because it’s 50. He is helping his old community. I think he is doing a good thing He like TI use to sell drugs in that community now he is investing in that same community.Big up’s to 50.

  • Apollo

    Co- sign $ycotic

    I mean hell yes 50 cent has gotten soft ( compare NYPD,LAPD to Straight to the bank)But.. he’s doing something good for the kids instead of lying about being Miami’s biggest drug dealer giving us Kids the impression that we can ” be in hotel suite’s eating crab meats” from selling some of that white powder” what kind of fuckin message is that ? i remember when BDP came with ” Stop the violence” if youre a real street cat thats telling you’re story im fine with that. but whats going on in hip hop when you have to lie about being a big time drug dealer instead of telling us youth to stay in school feel me ? my beef with 50 is that he still trys to be hard at times

    • $ykotic

      I’m with ya brah.

      You killed my name though…
