50 Cent Shares His Honor With Legendary Better Midler
Posted November 5, 2008
50 Cent was joined by the Legendary Bette Milder Monday to celebrate the opening of The Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson Community Garden” in Queens, New York. Mrs. Midler said he had to nag 50 to come out, “I called and nagged him,” Midler said, describing how she got 50 Cent involved with the garden. “His G-Unity Foundation gives a million dollars away every year in grants to non profits all over the city … They’re just brilliant.”
The garden is Midler’s most recent endeavor for New York Restoration Project, which is located in Jamaica, Queens, where 50 grew up. The project will serve as a living classroom for neighborhood school children to learn about how food grows.
“I wish I had this to come to when I was growing up around here,” 50 said. “The opportunity to create this garden for the youth and the community is a great one.”
50 said as a side noted, “When Bette calls, you don’t say ‘no.’ Not if you want your reputation to stay the way it is.”
50 Cent says he will work with Midler in the future, Midler went on to joke, “He’s producing my next record,” the star winks. “I will be rapping. He’s writing a song for me right now.”
