Bugs and Bette Midller, opened up the Curtis Jackson Community Garden yesterday in Queens:
The two joined forces Monday to celebrate the opening of “The Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson Community Garden” in Queens, New York. “I called and nagged him,” Midler said, describing how she got 50 Cent involved with the garden. “His G-Unity Foundation gives a million dollars away every year in grants to non profits all over the city … They’re just brilliant.” The garden (the most recent endeavor for Midler’s New York Restoration Project) is located in Jamaica, Queens, where the rapper grew up. It will mainly serve as a living classroom for neighborhood school children to learn about how food grows.“I wish I had this to come to when I was growing up around here,” he said. “The opportunity to create this garden for the youth and the community is a great one.” “Besides,” he noted, “When Bette calls you don’t say ‘no.’ Not if you want your reputation to stay the way it is.”
Look at Bugsy trying to clean up his image. At least he trying to set a good example even if it is nothing more than an obvious tactical move.
