This week, while promoting his new line of headphones, 50 Cent told a French press outlet that Dr. Dre‘s often-delayed album Detox might not be an album after all. He’s thinking it’s just an EP with only a few songs on it. Also, tickets for The Rolling Stones‘ London shows went on sale this morning and sold out in seven minutes. And The Local Natives announced the release date of their forthcoming record Hummingbird. All that and more below.

50 Cent’s fifth record is finally set for release, as the long gestating album has just been given a release date of November 13th. Following in the footsteps of his other, equally subtle album titles—Get Rich or Die Tryin’, The Massacre, Curtis, and Before I Self Destruct—the new album is called Street King Immortal. Get it? It’s because he’s badass, you guys.

The rapper who once told us to “party like it’s our birthday” isn’t very optimistic about the future. On Monday, 50 Cent posted a series of pessimistic tweets including, “Ill be honest I don’t think I am going to live much longer.” Why is the guy who’s survived 9 gunshots so skeptical about his life?

As we previously reported, many pop stars—here’s looking at you, Beyonce, 50 Cent, Usher, and Mariah Carey—are doing their best to publicly make amends after accepting money from Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi to perform at shows for himself and his family (oops). Some have gone the philanthropic route (Beyonce), and donated the money to charity. Others (Mariah Carey), have taken the more interesting “hey, this sure sucks, and I totally promise not to perform for dictators who enact state-sanctioned terrorism ever again, pinky swears (but I think I’ll hang on to the moolah, if that’s cool)!” direction.
Turns out, The Man They Call Fiddy has opted for the former option.

$8.7 million may not roll off the tongue as nicely as “50 Cent,” but our guess is that it’s what you’d prefer to see in your bank account. And, if the New York Post is to be believed, that’s about how much money rapper Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson made this week when he Tweeted messages to his fans encouraging them to invest in a company he owns 30 million shares of stock in.
Yeah, he got rich, and he thankfully didn’t need to die trying.

There are a lot of musicians who attempt to hop over the fence and become an actor, however, only there are a only a few talented stars who earn the critical acclaim. (We all know Britney Spears wasn’t getting an Oscar for Crossroads.) Some may have had aspirations to be in the film industry but just happened to get a good deal in the music realm, so it’s a bit hard to see them as believable characters in films sometimes.
However, musicians are passionate and when they land a gig, they usually give it their all no matter what the outcome may be. It’s all about the performance. It’s the same way in acting and rapper 50 Cent has definitely given everything he had to fit a role for his straight-to-DVD film, Things Fall Apart.

This has got to be one of the strangest celebrity fights ever. Apparently, 50 Cent and Marv Albert had a problem when they both appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! 50 Cent’s posse didn’t recognize Albert when he was walking down the hall and went for him. It’s still slightly unclear what exactly happened, but there were lots of fists thrown.
