50 Talks Missing Inauguration, Mocks Attendees

Posted By on January 21, 2009

    Every artist and their mom (and their friends and their friends mom) was in Washington D.C. for the inauguration of President Barack Obama, except one… 50 Cent. The G-Unit general, who first backed Hillary Clinton, says he never thought about attending the historic events, unlike Diddy, Jay-Z, Nas, Young Jeezy and the 15 million others.

    "I [might have] watched it from a really nice hotel room in D.C.," 50 jokingly says. "Because there's gonna be a whole lot of people out there, for no reason, doing different things. If Obama didn't invite you, you really shouldn't be there. You really shouldn't. That's the way I feel about it. Because when I go places that people didn't invite me [to], they look at me crazy, like, 'Why is he out there?' "

    After he was done joking around, 50 says Obama now faces many challenges. "I think he's inheriting the country in a difficult state. Actually the worst [state], right? So I think it will take time. I hope, for all of our sakes, that whatever his plans are work for us." 50 mocked all the Obama followers saying "People watch [Obama on] the monitor like God is speaking, like, 'I hope he can get me a job.' "
