Plenty of politicians have tried to curry favor with Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson over time. Sometimes, he's up for it. But when Donald Trump got here calling in 2017, 50 was not having it. The rapper/entrepreneur spilled the small print on Tuesday night time (Feb. 19) whereas grabbing some sofa alongside democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren, telling host James Corden that the self-proclaimed final deal maker provided him $500,000 to seem at his 2017 inauguration.
Ever the savvy businessman, 50 mulled it over and stated...no manner. "They provided me a half one million to go," stated 50 of the princely sum dangled by the Trump inaugural committee for the famously star-starved Jan. 2017 coronation, as Warren seemed on in seeming shock. "They provided you half one million to play on the inauguration?" Corden responded incredulously.
"No, simply to return," 50 clarified. "Just to be there? Just to show up?" Corden requested as Warren stared blankly and stated, "Wow." Needless to say, 50 didn't heed the decision, principally as a result of, as he stated, "I didn't know if I may repair the injury. To be trustworthy with you, all cash's not good cash. You've acquired to watch out what you're doing publicly as a result of...I don't understand how you repair that."
A spokesperson for the White House couldn't be reached for remark at press time because of the authorities shutdown in Washington, D.C. attributable to Wednesday's (Feb. 20) winter snowstorm. "I used to be similar to, 'Whoa!' Don't carry me to repair the African-American vote," 50 laughed. "Bring someone else, I'll goodbye." As for what recommendation he'd supply Warren to succeed in the younger vote, 50 urged that she "simply loosen up, you gotta loosen up." And, in fact, when she turns into president, hang around with him.
Trump famously boasted that he would have "the most important celebrities on the planet" at his inauguration, although the actual property mogul didn't safe the sort of big-name performers his predecessor had. Unlike Pres. Obama's first inaugural, which featured a "We Are One" blowout starring Beyoncé, Bon Jovi, Garth Brooks, Renée Fleming, John Legend, U2, James Taylor, Usher, Stevie Wonder, Pete Seeger and Josh Groban, Trump's swearing in was celebrated to the sounds of three Doors Down, the Piano Guys, Lee Greenwood, America's Got Talent runner-up Jackie Evancho and Sam and Dave's Sam Moore.
