Pimpin’ ain’t easy…unless of course you’re 50 Cent. In XXLMag.com’s latest poll, readers determined that Fif’s “Pimpin’ Curly” episodes are the funniest videos the rapper has posted online.
Close to 3,000 fans voted in the poll, with Pimpin’ Curly earning 39 percent of the total votes. The Queens-bred MC’s latest video, aimed at rival Fat Joe, came in second place with 29 percent. Coming in at third with 18 percent was 50’s comical narration of the sex tape involving the mother of Rick Ross’ child and the Officer Ricky Cartoons landed in last place with 13 percent of the overall tally.
50 first introduced the flamboyant, high-pitched character earlier this year during his online battle with rival Rick Ross. When the Miami rapper referred to Fif as “Curly” in an interiew, the G-Unit general took the nickname and created the personality, releasing a handful of clips on his thisis50.com Website.

Reading what Fab said about me on Twitter was disappointing.
I have extended myself to Fab personally to allow him to expand himself as an international Touring Artist.
I Thought we were Friends but that’s cool.
Law #2: Never put too much trust in Friends, Learn how to use Enemies
Be wary of friends—they will betray you more quickly, for they are easily aroused to envy. They also become spoiled and tyrannical. But hire a former enemy and he will be more loyal than a friend, because he has more to prove. In fact, you have more to fear from friends than from enemies. If you have no enemies, find a way to make them.
—50th Law of Power.
Am I 50 Cent or Am I Machiavelli? Dammmm!!!

Rapper Shyne is expected to be released from prison today, as initially reported on HipHopDX this August. The 30 year-old rapper a/k/a Jamal Barrow was sentenced to 10 years in June of 2001 for charges stemming from a high-publicized 1999 shooting incident involving Diddy and Jennifer Lopez. During his eight-plus year sentence, the Brooklyn emcee was incarcerated at Riker’s Island, Woodbourne and Clinton Correctional Facility.
Since the incident, the rapper released his only two albums: 1999′s platinum self-titled album on Bad Boy Records, and 2004′s Godfather Buried Alive release on Def Jam, including a song recorded through the phone from prison.
In the last eight years, the rapper has been speculated and rumored to sign with various labels including Murder Inc., Death Row Records and most recently Roc Nation. The rapper has confirmed none of these rumors, and spoken few times publicly, most recently to XXL magazine.
Diddy spoke to HOT97 recently on Shyne’s release, stating, “It’s a blessing that he’s coming home…I spoke to him like a couple of weeks ago and he sounded like he was in good spirits. I know he can’t wait to get home. I know he is definitely going to heat the whole scene up. He was definitely one of [many] talented young artists that I had the pleasure to work with. I’m quite sure he’s been using his time wisely and has some heat.”
Lindsay’s dad, Michael Lohan, is speaking out about his daughter’s downward spiral; one he blames on prescription drugs. “I’m going to get her off the prescription drugs that she’s on,” Lohan told us in a candid interview. “I hate it when people talk about illegal drug abuse… because it’s not just drinking and illegal drugs that kill you. Prescription drugs can destroy and kill a person and are sometimes harder to stop. Look at Heath Ledger and Michael Jackson.”
Lohan asked us not to reveal what specific medications he believes his daughter is abusing, but says they’ve taken over her life. “You know why Lindsay’s not acting in feature films right now? Because she can’t,” he said. “Because the girl with all the talent is hidden and buried deep inside this fungus that’s grown because of the prescription drugs. She can’t be herself. When you hug her she’s like, vacant inside. When she kisses or holds me I get chills, and not in a good way-in a bad way.”
Lohan had a chance to spend some quality time with his oldest daughter following the break-in at her Hollywood Hills home. He says he was shocked by how much she’d changed. “She’s a different person. I was out there for a week when she was living at the Sunset Marquis Hotel and I would sit there and cry. It was horrible. This was not the kid I raised.”
Lohan says he’s speaking out now because he’s worried about Lindsay’s health and fears she’s being taken advantage of by those he calls “enablers.”
“I don’t care what anyone says about Lindsay. The Lindsay Lohan I lived with when I was married was a focused, intelligent, gifted girl that needed no prescription medication, no assistance from a therapist. Whoever the people are that came into her life and convinced her otherwise should be thrown in jail, because they’re the same type of people who are responsible for the deaths of Heath Ledger, Michael Jackson and DJ AM,” Lohan said. “Everything was fine in our family until Dina and I got divorced. And that’s when all the kids’ lives started to unravel… including Lindsay’s.”
Earlier this week a new song from Usher by the name of “Papers” leaked to the internet, from his album titled “Raymond v Raymond”. In the song he sings about how he is ready to sign the papers to get a divorce, but I’ve learned that Usher is the one who hasn’t signed and is stalling to sign the papers.
An inside source tells me:
I know I’ve been a little quiet lately but I’ve been in silent reflection, quiet meditation, and prayer. Turning 40 is such a blessing. Especially because as I child I always thought I would die before I grew up.
If life begins at 40, then I owe the little boy that I was my life. Case in point, not long ago, I was brought a film to watch to see what I thought of it. It’s called PRECIOUS, based on the novel PUSH by Sapphire. I sat at home watching this movie not knowing what to expect. After the movie was over, I sat there for a long time just thinking about what I had just witnessed. I watched all the things that Precious, a 16-year-old girl in the film, went through. I watched her mother be unusually cruel to her and I realized at that moment that a large part of my childhood had just played out before my eyes. It hit me so hard, I sat there in tears realizing that somehow, by the grace of God, I made it through. My tears were tears of joy, being thankful that I made it.
Believe me when I tell you, PRECIOUS is a powerful film. After seeing it, I had to be involved. I didn’t write it or direct it, nor am I making any money from it. Oprah and I both are giving any proceeds we would make to charity. I just wanted to get as many people to see it as I can. It gave me so much hope after watching it. For everyone who has been a Precious, male or female, this movie will make you so glad you made it through.
It took me through some raw emotions and brought me to some things and places in my life that I needed to deal with but had long forgotten. It brought back memories so strong that I can smell and taste them. Like, when I was very young, my mother decided to leave my father…she had had enough of his insanity. She loaded me and my two sisters up in an old Cadillac that he had bought for her, and drove to California. When he realized she was gone, he called the police and reported the car stolen, as it was in his name. My mother was arrested and my two sisters and I were put in the cell with her. He and my uncle drove from Louisiana to California to get us. We spent several days in jail waiting for him. He bailed her out and couldn’t wait to get her into the car. He got into the back seat with us and beat her black and blue from California to Louisiana, as me and my sisters watched Even though I was only two or three, I know that this had to have some effect on me.
I’m tired of holding this in. I don’t know what to do with it anymore, so, I’ve decided to give some of it away…
Luckily Nicole Richie left the kids at home. Richie was rear-ended by a paparazzi who was arrested as a result of the accident.
“She was rear-ended,” BHPD Lt. Tony Lee tells E! News, adding that the accident occurred around 2 p.m. “There was a complaint of pain injury. She told officers at the scene that she’s going to seek her own medical treatment.”
There was only minor damage to her car, and no ambulance was called to the scene.
GET THAT GHOSTFACE
If you don’t already have Ghostfaces’ album make sure you go and cop your copy (BUYING CD’s is cool kids). Need a reason to go get it?? Here are some of the stories your in for straight from Pretty Toney himself:
“You got your songs where I f***ed up, where I might have got a girl pregnant. Songs where I’m feeling lonely and s**t, where my girl left me and there’s another man that moved into my house with kids. And you got situations where you bump into a pregnant girl, but she’s so pretty, and you wish you could have her, but she’s pregnant and she’s married. Just problems when I might have messed around, let the cable man come to my house, fix my cable, but two weeks later he’s somewhere on my property in my guest house, screwing my wife”
Ummmmm…Ok. Meanwhile this is his last album on Def Jam no word on where he’ll be next and that Ghostface, Rae and Meth collaboration “Yolandas House” will be distributed by Def Jam as well…They start recording in about 2 weeks.
I remember Kirstie Alley said she wanted Jaimee and he replied “I do like them thick …and she is thick.” Well apparently they have been doing their thing in a not so private way. Here are some of Kirstie’s recent tweets:
