I told ya’ll a year ago that Curtis Jackson, p/k/a 50 Cent was not a rapper. News hits yesterday about how the thespian has lost over 50 pounds in connection with his new upcoming movie “. According to ThisIs50.com, ‘Fif lost a lot of weight for his upcoming movie “Things Fall Apart”. In the movie Curtis plays a football player diagnosed with cancer.
‘He dropped from 214 pounds to an astonishing 160 with a liquid diet and three-hour-a-day treadmill walks for nine weeks.’
“I was starving.” Now he’s back on tour and says, “I’ve been eating. I’ll be back in shape in no time!”
I was already thinking how uncharacteristic it was for dude to be so quiet on the music front, especially with “foes” like Rick Ross currently making so much noise. Then this news. I’m not a betting man, but knowing him, I’d say 50 is dead serious and set on copping and Oscar, the film industry’s most coveted award. He’s already not a bad actor, but with all the time and dedication, trust when I say I won’t be surprised if he at least gets a nomination. I mentioned that on Twitter earlier today and almost got clowned. That’s around the time one of my buddies, a tried and true Hollywood actor and insider hit me via email and informed me that word on the Los Angeles streets is that Curtis is eating, breathing, living the Oscar. You heard it here first.
And if ya’ll are thinking this is preposterous, go back 10 years ago and imagine what you’d think if someone told you Jaimie Foxx would land an Academy Award in the near future. GTFOH!
And don’t forget, it’s not like the boy can’t already cry on cue:
Note to self: I might need to jump on this liquid diet thingie myself.
