50 Cent/Bette Midler: Public Gardening Project Partners!

I absolutely love this story. Apparently, Bette Midler and 50 Cent have become friends and fellow advocates for a public gardening project in the Bronx (and they might do a song together as well).

The story comes from Mark Malkin at E. Midler belongs to an environmental group dedicated to bringing back green spaces to New York called the New York Restoration Project.

50 Cent collaborated on the development of a public garden in his childhood neighborhood in Jamaica, Queens.
Fiddy immediately jumped on board when Midler came calling. "He never asked how much," she says. "He just said, Where do I sign?" The rapper will be by Midler's side once again May 19 for the Restoration Project's eighth annual spring picnic in New York City's Fort Tryon Park.

I just love how community gardening projects cross so many social boundaries--including music genre! In terms of a potential duet, Midler had this to say:

A duet with Fiddy and Midler could be next. "I was hoping we'd sing songs from the Depression, but he's so young that I don't think he knows any of them," Midler laughs. "I'm going to have to check things out and see what he feels like singing."

  1. This is an older story, but it is great for celebrities to give even if it is for a photo-op.
