WTF Department: 50 Cent and Bette Midler Planning Collaboration

    Remember the noise Kramer made on Seinfeld when he found out that Bette Midler was going to be in the park? If not, here’s a clip to refresh your memory. It’s hard to imagine 50 Cent making a similar noise when Midler suggested they team up to record together. But he appears to have agreed to the collaboration, so who knows what kind of Kramerian thoughts were running through his mind?

    Midler wants to sing jazz with 50 Cent, and suggested the collaboration when the two met while working on the New York Restoration Project. “He’s such a doll,” said Midler, which is an assertion the rapper’s ex-girlfriend Shaniqua Tompkins most certainly doesn’t agree with.

    “I love him. He’s gorgeous,” she gushes. “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. I’m going to have to check things out and see what he feels like singing.” And the list of highly unusual musical collaborations just got a little longer.
