Pictures of 50 Cent looking like cracked out cancer patient hit the Internet yesterday and caused a sensation, until it came out that his emaciated appearance was helped along with Photoshop and stage makeup.

Two days ago Curtis was seen with his aunt in S. Carolina where he's shooting a Roots special for VH1. In the documentary, he traces his family tree (I don't know why his family tree requires a TV special unless it turns out he's related to 2Pac or something).

    Maybe I'm missing something. What is the point of the photoshopped pic? Was 50 in on the "joke"? Is it me or does some of the post make no sense like some of the words are missing or something....I could be wrong. I did have cocktails last night. :kona:

  • Thetruth32

    SC in the house!!!! NOT a good look 50

  • Mother Jefferson

    Maybe he went to Popeyes? :rolleyes:

    @ AKA

    I read on another site that its for a movie role. He's supossed to be a football player with cancer, or something like that!

    I didnt think that looked like his head though.

  • AprilRain

    WTF!!!! So it was all just a bunch of HOOPLA.... I'm pissed, am I reading this right????

  • CivilEngineer

    He did an interview about the weight loss. Why would he lie?

    And that last paragraph made my eyes hurt.

  • aqtpie

    He still looks smaller than usual in the new photo. I wonder how old is the photo of him looking sick?

    Is it me or does he look like a bald Diddy? :coffee:

  • TruGemini

    Maybe the skinty pics of 50 were taken during filming of the movie. Since filming has wrapped, I'm sure he's gained some of his weight back. Who knows how long they've been done filming that movie...

  • chat bout

    i don't see anything photo shopped about that pic. it's been awhile since he has been out in public. maybe he stayed away until he looked close to normal again. in the pic on the right, he still doesn't have the bod he did b4 .but he looks much better then the pic on the left.

  • pinksghetti

    I'm glad he's looking better. In the back of my mind I wondered if it could be a real photo or not. Maybe the skinny picture was taking a few months ago and he's gaining some of weight back *shrugs*

  • http://twitter.com/Ms_Missy2791 missy

    Yea Sandra your post has some errors in it....

    He did lose the weight for a movie role didn't lie about it..

    Yvonne-He does look like a bald headed skinner version of Diddy... :eek: :lol:

  • babygirlcaramel

    I heard that this was taken a while back & he has since gained his weight back. So that would explain why 2 days ago he looks the same as before. What would be the point of 50 putting out a photoshop pic of hisself....1 that looked like that. Most people use photoshop 2 improve a pic (except Sandra)!

  • Daisy

    Well how old is the 1st pic he cld have had time to gain a few lbs and the new pic isn't a close up either :shrug:

  • http://twitter.com/eastpointvet eastpointvet

    that was all makeup i dont think the pic was photoshopped though and yes he has gained weight back but he is still about 20-25 pounds off it looks like

  • http://createspace.com/3393054 iscream

    There is a show on network tv where yt celeb's trace their roots. Sarah Jessica, Matthew Broadrick, Phebee from Friends.. What's wrong with 50 tracing his roots. :shrugs:

    And I agree he may have just gained some of the weight back.

  • CWhatsHerFace

    He still looks small in the other pic, so I don't think it was photoshopped! Sandra, that last paragraph, A MESS!

    that is true!!!!!!!!!

  • Silhouette

    I think he actually lost the weight, Whoppi gave him kudos this morning on the view saying that he was taking his craft seriously. I know I haven't seen picture of him in a min. so he might have just gain some weight back.

  • Cinderella

    I think he is being featured on the show, not given one. Since there is no date on either pic, I don't know what to think.

    There's also a version on PBS for Black people. Tom Joyner did it and several noted others. Somebody traced their family back to bootleggers, wrongfully convicted murderers and of course, white folks. I cant' remember what it's called but that was some TV I'd watch.

  • qtipthecat

    @iscream.....not just yt folks. Spike Lee was on that show also. His was really interesting.

  • ohso

    @TheTruth: Are you from SC also??? If so what part?

  • ohso

    @Princess: Yes there was and I believe Professor Gates (the Harvard (?)who got the police called on him) was the host. Me and my daddy would watch it while my mother would breathe heavy....she's not into stuff like that :rolleyes:

  • Princess Smarty-Pants

    Me and my daddy would watch it while my mother would breathe heavy….she’s not into stuff like that

    no disrepsect but :rofl: I dont even know why that was funny.

  • OutsidetheBox

    That was funny @OhSo... I could just see your mother breathing heavy like the older generation does when something is uncomfortable!

    :rofl:

  • Tink Tink

    That last paragraph gave me a headache, I tried to read over it 3x and still couldn't get it.

  • Tink Tink

    Truth you from SC, Me too, whoop whoop....Im from Charleston.

  • Carmez79

    they have finished filming the show. he said in an interview that now that its over, he is back to eating and will be normal again in no time. so i dont know where you get photoshop and makeup. this is the samething christian bale did in the machinist.

  • Val

    WELL THANK GOD CUZ I DIDNT KNOW WHAT TO THINK ABOUT THAT MESS- GLAD ITS A LIE..I DIDNT REALIZE HOW SEXY 50 REALLY IS UNTIL TODAY- LOL

    I doubt you would be perfect If you had to write posts while answering phone calls and emails. :lol:

  • MandaPanda0408

    I knew it!!!

  • Jessie

    Sandra, if you READ the interview, 50 clearly stated he has started gaining his weight back. I believe he really did lose the weight. The picture of him looking emaciated is old. It is so rude to question a person's integrity when you don't have all the facts.
