50 Cent Donates to UNICEF
“In light of the ongoing events in Libya, 50 Cent will be making a donation to UNICEF, which is providing vital relief supplies to meet the needs of women and children at risk during this crisis,” a spokesman for Curtis James Jackson III told E!
While it was not disclosed how much the 35-year-old rapper was paid to perform, Nelly Furtado tweeted last month that she was given $1 million to play a 45 minute set for the Gadhafi family.
In addition to the New York MC, Beyonce, Mariah Carey and Usher have all issued statements saying they will donate money to charities in light of the Libyan leader’s highly publicized trouble. —Nicole LoPresti
