TV FAB: 50 Cent Talks Being Sober, Charity Work And Never Meeting His Father On "Piers Morgan"

 

 

50 Cent stopped by "Piers Morgan Tonight" last night (these damn braids though...) to discuss his success an a businessman, his charitable endeavors and never knowing his father.  He also dished on his sobriety. Watch the full in-depth interview inside....

Last night, 50 Cent chatted with Piers Morgan is one of his month in-depth interviews ever.  The viewer learned about 50's hard-knock childhood, his role as a father and his committment to giving back to his community.  Here are some highlights:

On his father -

In what could have been a tense moment, 50 revealed that he has never met his father and that the "man" has never reached out to him.  He added that at this point in his life, he has no desire to meet him but wishes he would have been around to guide him through adolescence.

On his own relationship with his son -

From the way his own eyes lit up, it seems that 50 is a very hands on father.  He talked about offering his son advice and teaching him about learning from the mistakes of his own youth.

On how kids are subconsciously conditioned for certain lifestyles -

"We offer a male child cars, trucks, We also offer a male child guns – cap guns, a water gun," he says. "These are toys that are manufactured for children. They manufacture that because I think they're subconsciously trying to teach that male child to be the financial support of the actual relationship, the family, and the protector. But you can misinterpret what those things are there for. With less guidance as a child you could take that gun and have it mean, I want to shoot somebody."

On drug use -

In one of the interviews most shocking revelations, 50 said he had NEVER done drugs and had only been "drunk" a handful of times. 

"I don't actually use drugs.  "I got a chance to watch a lot of my mother's sisters and brothers at different periods experiment with the use of drugs or alcohol and I see them respond so differently that I stay away."

On alcohol consumption -

50 is NOT a big drinker either. 

"I've had an experience that made me paranoid because of it and I stayed away from it following that."

On following the success of "In Da Club"

"It's a gift and a curse," he said. When your first song is that good, is that effective, you're kind of up against that first body of work for the rest of your career."

On President Barack Obama -

“I was an advocate for Hillary because I wasn’t sure America was ready for an African-American president,” but that his election, “shows how far America has come,”

On being hands-on with his businesses -

“You have to pay attention. When I go into negotiations and different deals, I absolutely have to be involved myself. If I don’t understand understand it, I say ‘Explain it to me,’ and if I [still don't understand it], I say ‘Explain it slow.’”

i love what 50 did w himself.

i love what 50 did w himself. prevailed through adversity, did his rap thing, yes, but decided to expand outside of that. doing movies and other business/entrepreneurial ventures, etc--a lot of black men can learn from him. not saying they need to be a rapper or anything, but just to set they mind higher than trying to be a drug lord or rapper because it's "fast, easy" money. i just really love what he did with himself. i respect him and his hustle.

Y'all some simple bitches. Do you not know that those braids are for a movie. For which he's getting PAID for??? Who gives a fuck if they're out of style? Remember not too long ago he had an s-curl for something he was getting paid for. Which is why he will continue to be successful outside of rap. He accomplished in short rap career what most rappers won't accomplish in a lifetime.

50 cent is mentally ill. He

50 cent is mentally ill. He has so many alters and personalities it is amazing plus he goes from one extreme to the next too quick. He is a super queen bottom b*tch. Real immature and he has the childish cornrows that lil boys wear to match his childish nature. Grown men should NEVER rock cornrows especially on a televised interview/corporate interview where you are trying to portray yourself as intelligent, mature and professional. 50 you ain't been hot since Go Shawty and that was a wack childish song. Your 15 min is up......please jump off a cliff you queen!

In addittion, it's pretty

In addittion, it's pretty believeable that 50 is gay. It's been highly rumored for some time now and in all honesty he just appears to be gay to me. When was the last time anyone EVER heard of 50 being with a woman??? Please don't give me that Ciara shyt either. That was just some made for tv mess and truthfully, she's kind of manly looking so he probably imagined flucking a dude while with her. The whole Vivica Fox thing was just something to do too. She even admitted he was whack in bed. It's probably because women do nothing for him...he'd have rather been with a man.

You are right! He is gay

You are right! He is gay thats why he acts like a pre teen girl and diva acting like a b*tch all the time. He needs Jesus and boned The Game, Lloyd Banks, Dr. Dre, Eminem, Tony Yayo and all of the rest of GUnit. The G in stood for Gay bc they are all a bunch of bottom queens. I believe he even boned Rick Ross but Rick Ross didn't let him cuddle thats why he beefed with him and Ja Rule never paid him mind and turned him down thats why he made his life a living hell.

Well damn! You summed up just

Well damn! You summed up just about everything I wanted to say. Except you left out the fact that not only should a grown ass man not wear cornrows that are about 10 years too late to be worn anyway, a grown man shouldn't have a line up/edge up with said cornrows either. As much money as dude has why does he always just look broke?!?!? Last month this ni**a was rocking a GREASY blow out kit that looked like he sprayed it and let the activator juice drip down his forehead. Now, dude is rocking cornrows. This is the main ni**a calling other dudes "wanksters". Really 50??? Who's the wankster now??? GTFOHWTS

Regarding those who have a

Regarding those who have a problem with 50's advocating for Hillary Clinton... I, myself, voted for Barack Obama. Looking back though, he may have had more success had he run in 2012 AFTER Hillary. I'm proud of what the President has tried to do and how he carries himself, but politics is a dirty business; and Hillary had been around Washington politics longer. I don't think the Rethuglicans (and many Democrats) would've fought her so viciously if she were President. With that said, just because 50 advocated for her doesn't mean he didn't vote for Barack Obama once he secured the Democratic nomination.

I love that he is so

I love that he is so multi-dimensional and not at all what people think. If more of our black men would use the gifts that God gave them for good, the world would be a much better place. If you have the mind to be a good drug dealer, then you probably have a mind to be a good businessperson or something else that's positive. Fifty is living the American dream.

Well as a man and artist in general I wouldn't give 50a thought...but he seems to be able to articulate his point pretty well, he's clearly taken his street business to the boardroom so kudos to him for turning his life around and continue to be a positive force and influence on your son...however; say what you want CURTIS....I know you burnt down your baby momma's house and I can't eeeeeeeven be mad at cha!

As I read, I was thinking

As I read, I was thinking that 50 really came a long way until he said he supported Hillary Clinton back in '08. Really? If that's how he thinks sober than maybe he should do some drugs. Simple-a$$.

The comment about riding with

The comment about riding with Hilary! So he thought the country was ready for a women president over a half black dude?!?! I respect his opinion but OI disagree. Anyways, 50cents may be teaching his son certain things but that ghetto hoodrat baby mama is corrupting that child's mind. When she wanted 50 to buy that child all of those damn shoes so he could compete with another kid was beyond hoodrat to me! Ummm, I am not shocked that he doesn't really drink and has never done drugs! That is a very good trait!
U laid it Low and Spread it wide...Mama Braxton!! lol's picture

And this is why reading

And this is why reading snippets of an interview on a blogsite instead going straight to the interview itself is ignorant...in the interview, he clarifies, he said he didn't think America was ready for a black Pres and perhaps didn't think he'd win..so what..there are millions of black who felt the same way and voted different in the DEMOCRAT election. As a 100% Barack supporter, it didn't matter to ME whether he had a chance of winning or not, I was voting for him regardless. But reading Natasha's butchered up snippets of this interview, she leads you to believe what SHE wants you to think about this interview!! Shameful..
