'Candyshop' rapper 50 Cent - who is famed for his muscles - wants to launch a diet supplement
50 Cent wants to launch a diet supplement.
The rapper - real name Curtis Jackson - is considering creating his own range of vitamin-enriched pills but refused to be drawn on the details.
He is quoted by the New York Daily News newspaper as saying: "Right now, I'm interested in dietary supplements. I'll be coming up with something very soon.
"I can't tell you what it would be called. I'd be blowing the big launch party!"
The 'Candyshop' hitmaker also claimed he is drawing inspiration from music mogul P. Diddy when it comes to fashion.
He joked: "When my career blew up, I developed the Diddy syndrome. That's where this velvet blazer came from.
"As soon as you develop the Diddy syndrome, you put a little more grease in your hair, and soon enough, you're selling cologne."
While 50 may have been joking with his jibes to Diddy, Kanye West recently revealed 50's attacks on him left him feeling as if he had been "spit on".
The 'Stronger' hitmaker says he is distraught by the rapper's continued derogatory comments towards him because he has always been such a big fan of his work.
He said: "Just as a real human being, I can't say that it doesn't affect me. I was such a fan of 50.
"It's almost like if a little kid walks up to you at the airport and is like, 'Man, I love you so much,' and then you spit on him, it's like 'I don't know if I love you as much as I used you,' as you wipe the spit off your face. But you still play their music."
