Chelsea Handler and 50 Cent

Chelsea Handler was joined by some famous friends and her former boyfriend 50 Cent on Tuesday’s series finale of her E! talk show “Chelsea Lately.” The former couple, who dated briefly in 2011, saw each other for the first time since their breakup.

“I want to apologize because I did end our relationship abruptly and I know you didn’t come on the show for many years. I didn’t know if you were upset with me,” she told the rapper. “I want you to know that I have not dated a black man since.”

50 said he had been working out in anticipation of his appearance on the show. “But seriously, are you over me?” asked Chelsea.

Curtis and his fellow G-Unit members Young Buck, Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo, and Kidd Kidd also hit the stage to perform “Watch Me” off their new EP The Beauty of Independence.

“I think Chelsea turns me on because she crazier then me lol,” said 50.

The finale also featured a performance from Miley Cyrus and a “We Are the World”-inspired sendoff featuring Gwen Stefani, Tyga, Wiz Khalifa, Fergie, Selena Gomez, Naya Rivera, Avril Lavigne, Jennifer Aniston, and many more.

G-Unit Returns with Surprise EP ‘The Beauty of Independence’

The Beauty of Independence

The Unit is back. Without prior warning, the hip-hop supergroup pulled a Beyoncé and dropped its six-track digital EP The Beauty of Independence on Sunday at midnight.

Their first project since 2008′s T.O.S (Terminate on Site) includes production from Havoc, Ryan “Ryu” Alexy, Lord Quest, and 45 Music.

The EP comes after the group reunited on stage at Hot 97 Summer Jam in June. 50 Cent, Lloyd Banks, Young Buck, Tony Yayo, and New Orleans newcomer Kidd Kidd have been dropping remixes and original songs in the meantime.

The music brought them back together after six years. “It’s clear that the passion for what we do is there because you don’t see the same numbers anymore,” 50 told Billboard. “But it’s even more important that you mean something. For me, when I fell in love with [music], authenticity was everything.”

Stream the entire EP below.
