Sometimes you start reading a dude's Twitter and then it completely dominates their personality. For instance, next time Slim Thug raps some super heavy thing, all we'll be thinking about is how he talks about pooping constantly on the internet. 50 Cent is another guy, who—if anyone had any doubts at the height of his bullying days—actually has a great sense of humor, to the point that it's been eclipsing any thoughts we might have about his actual music. So it's a miracle that we're able to listen to "They Burn Me" and more or less, kind of sort of, not think about how 50 tweeted that he met a woman—A WOMAN!—who apparently looked like Homer Simpson and then felt like he needed to clarify to the internet that he didn't have sex with her as if we all would automatically assume that he did. But this is his plight in 2010. He's not on top anymore, and it makes him more endearing. Now people aren't going to think of him as a bully and they're just going to think he's funny and chock full of humility and he will probably get really bummed about that and wish he could still make videos where he dresses up like a scary clown and dances around inside a chimney.
