No, sillies, but that's funny to think about, isn't it?
Bette Midler and 50 Cent collaborated Monday to celebrate the opening of "The Curtis '50 Cent' Jackson Community Garden" in Queens, New York.
So, how'd that happen?
"I called and nagged him," the Divine Ms. M said. "His G-Unity Foundation gives a million dollars away every year in grants to non profits all over the city ... They're just brilliant."
"When Bette calls you don't say 'no.' Not if you want your reputation to stay the way it is," the rapper said.
The garden is located in Jamaica, Queens, where the 50 grew up. Neighborhood children will use the grounds to learn about how food grows. "I wish I had this to come to when I was growing up around here," he said. "The opportunity to create this garden for the youth and the community is a great one."
So, is this beginning of a beautiful friendship? "Absolutely!" 50 promised, before giving her a big hug.
"He's producing my next record," Bette jokingly concurred. "I will be rapping. He's writing a song for me right now."
That I'd like to see.
