50 Cent’s 2 Cents On Face Tatoos
I really don’t like 50 Cent. As a matter of fact, I unfollowed him on twitter when I realized he can be very ignorant. Regardless of how I feel about him, I can honestly say that I completely agree with him when it comes to face tatoos. They are never a good idea. Thankfully Kenyans are an educated lot and would not even think about pulling such a stunt…well, I hope (If you send in pics of a Kenyan with a face tatoo, I am willing to buy you lunch. It has to be a permanent tatoo for this offer to apply 🙂 ).
Back to 50 Cent. He recently had the numerous tattoos on his body removed because he didn’t want them to interfere with him getting major movie roles. He is featured on the cover of the upcoming issue of Vibe magazine where he offers his views on face tatoos and thoughts on Drake not winning the Grammy for Best New Artist. You can also check out some pics of celebrities with face tatoos after the break.
50 ON RAPPERS WITH FACE TATTOOS
“That’s the craziest thing. Not necessarily Gucci, but to tattoo your face says that there’s not a possibility that you can actually walk into a legitimate establishment without makeup covering your face every day. That does not work. It creates a separation. It says, “I’m an artist.” That’s it. That’s the statement you make when you go and tattoo your face…But know that the public will not have interest in you as an artist for life. You have to be phenomenal. Talk to the best that do it and they will tell you that it will take more than you being an artist. It takes marketing, maneuvering to generate for that long. When you got 40-year-old rappers in the game, those guys have maneuvered and survived.”
50 ON BEST NEW ARTIST GRAMMY RESULT
“I think Drake got robbed. He should have got artist of the year last year [ laughs], to be real with you… He did a lot, man. I don’t believe that Drake would have been as successful or his project would have been as successful if Lil’ Wayne was home. That point where Wayne had to sit down provided a complete focus on Drake.”
