A jolt for 50 Cent fans before VMAs



Tbd50cent091107_2 50 Cent doesn't need to worry about Kanye West retiring him; the rapper's fans were shocked to hear the rapper warn them about thousands of volts of electricity almost killing them.

Fitty threw a handful of dollars into the crowd at a Las Vegas show at the Hard Rock Hotel Saturday night, and as the money-grubbing faithful rushed the stage to collect, they leaned against the stage, forcing it to sag and bringing its lights very close to a nearby pool.

When the audience didn't heed his warnings, 50 Cent left the stage and called it a night. Now that is an electric performance.
