On Tuesday, May 19th, 50 Cent attended Bette Midler's spring picnic for the New York Restoration Project
in Fort Tryon Park.
quotes 50 Cent: "Look how beautiful things are and how nice it feels when I'm around her. Me and Bette collaborating would be really hot. But I'd need to make something new for her. For the right song, we'd definitely get together."
And Bette Midler
said: "He is one of the newest members of our tribe. He has really made my life worth living. 50 has been with me through thick and thin."
She added: "I really can't rap, but I'd like to sing in the background on 'Get Rich or Die Tryin'."
