50 Cent takes pettiness to a whole new level after buying out Ja Rule concert
Oh, Fiddy. Truly. We are not worthy.
I'm a big fan of 50 Cent.
Not for the music, which has been consistently terrible after the admittedly excellent Get Rich or Die Tryin'.
Not for his acting, which, again, has been extremely wooden since his first film, the semi-autobiographical crime drama called, yep, Get Rich or Die Tryin'.
And certainly not for his business ventures, which include simply releasing things called Get Rich or Die Tryin' over and over again - the Broadway musical is coming soon - and investing in things like Glacéau, that weird vitamin water that you saw in Sainsbury's for a brief period before it disappeared altogether.
No, that's not why I still love 50 Cent. I still hold 50 Cent very close to my heart for one simple reason.
The man is fucking hilarious.
For instance, do you remember this tweet? The greatest tweet ever tweeted?
I can't belive my grand mothers making me take Out the garbage I'm rich fuck this I'm going home I don't need this shit

Honestly; phenomenal. Just amazing on so many different levels. And the thing is, he might have just gone and topped it with an act of pettiness on a completely unprecedented scale.
Take a look.
That is 50 Cent, via the magic of Photoshop, sat at a Ja Rule concert, having actually bought 200 seats in the front row.
All in a bid to praise the show. The show he had ruined, at substantial cost, because he simply doesn't like Ja Rule.
Commenting under the post, Fiddy explained, in appropriately childish fashion:
"I just bought 200 seats in the front so they can be empty. LOL."
Indeed, if you go back over his posts for the last few days, well, they tell their own story.
A band, I am reliably informed is $1000. The maths adds up. Let us continue.
Why is the picture of the seats upside down? I have no idea.
Does it make it infinitely more amusing? Yes. Yes, actually. It does.
And finally, this.
Just fantastic, on so many levels.
