OMG! 50 Cent hospitalized, is it life threatening or great promotion? He’s meant to be the king of cool.
But being admitted to hospital for surgery appears to have made 50 Cent a little delusional.
The rapper, real name Curtis Jackson, tweeted a picture of himself surrounded by stuffed animals – including a giraffe, elephant and lion – wearing a hospital gown on his sickbed.
The 36-year-old posted the picture to his six and half million followers online, but failed to mention the crucial details of why he had been admitted.
Failing to elaborate, 50 Cent instead deflected the reason for his medical attention, saying: ‘I’m in the hospital but my gangsta grillz LOST TAPE is done so it will be out on time.’
The Get Rich or Die Tryin’ actor was referring to the upcoming release of EP The Lost Tape, due for release next Tuesday.
Fiddy also stressed that he was not looking forward to going in to surgery, but did not specify if he would be having a local or general anesthetic.
Hip-hop artist DJ Drama, who collaborates with 50 on the new record, seems to think his friend is suffering from a ‘stomach virus’ and will make a swift recovery.
He told XXLMag: ‘First they wanted to keep it quiet (50′s illness), but he’s not a quiet guy.
‘He should be cool. It’s nothing that serious. We still gonna do our promo (scheduled for tomorrow).’
Fellow chart-topper Rihanna also posted pictures of herself on Twitter in hospital recently.
The Russian Roulette star took a snapshot of a drip attached to her arm, having just attended the Met Gala, after it was claimed the party animal was suffering from ‘exhaustion and dehydration’.
