Is this 50 Cent’s Last Interview?

You famously were shot nine times. What finally does you in?
Probably a head cold. Something really simple.
Do you have any deathbed confessions?
At that point I would just be runnin’ my mouth crazy. I’d tell you about everything that actually happened, that people don’t have the answers to. Law enforcement should just sit there.
Will you be going to heaven or hell?
I think I’ll be going to heaven, because I had good intentions. But my actions are another thing.
What will you look like on the other side?
I’ll have long, straight hair, like down to my back, when I go to heaven. And I’m not even going to work out, but I’ll be in shape. It’s a whole new program up there.
Eminem, Young Jeezy, and Snoop Dogg are featured on your new album. Who—living or dead—would you most want to do a song with?
Tupac and Michael Jackson. In heaven it’ll be the biggest hit. And Michael, he’ll have a new walk. It won’t be the moonwalk, because we already over the moon. It’ll be called “Walking on a Cloud.”
What’s your last meal?
I’d eat pizza from Margherita’s in Queens. It’s the spot. It don’t taste like that nowhere else.
What’s the wildest thing you ever did while you were alive?
Man, I can’t tell ya, I’d get in trouble. So let’s keep it sexual. You know the Orgy World DVD set? I did it—we just didn’t tape it.
What woman did you always want to sleep with?
This may sound inappropriate, but Phylicia Rashad from The Cosby Show. Listen, I watched the Huxtables, and I had a crush on that woman since the first episode aired. I’m an adult now, but she’s still so beautiful to me. I saw her on a plane one time, and, man, I just fainted. I went into groupie mode.
Now that you’re about to die, what will you confess to listening to on your iPod?
Kelly Clarkson. She was on the iPod when I got it, and I started listening to her when I was running. There’s storytelling there.
What are people saying over your casket?
This motherfucker left, and now we ain’t got no money! Who’s gonna pay the bills now?
Got any last words?
