Fifty Cent Saves Lives

9/9/2007 8:57 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Fifty Cent's poolside performance at the Hard Rock Hotel on Saturday almost turned deadly.


During the show, guest Floyd Mayweather Jr. started tossin' money in the air, causing the crowd to dive into the stage-side pool to collect the soggy dollars. As fans pushed in, the stage nearly gave way -- where stacks of electronics lay in wait to electrocute the whole lot! Get rich or die tryin'!

Fifty tried to warn the crowd, and when the warnings went unheeded, he ended the show by walking offstage.

Blah blah blah    

Wasn't great, but give her time, or would you rather she just fail over and over and just keep watching.

So far, I have not been impressed. This show lacks energy.

#2: I started posting about it on the Shannon Funk post. Seems TMZ can post a new one about that no-talent Fiddy, but not the no-talent Britney.

It looks like she was on something and trying to remember her steps like a robot. She sucked. I don't know how she's going to live this down.

I was working at the show as a cam. assistant and I was in the pool at the time. What ruin it was a guy use the supports in the water as a leverage to lift himself up to grab money that was still on the stage. Then, the front part of the stage started to tilt down and then stage right pillar that holds up the lights started to fall, a stage crew grabbed it until they put sandbags on it. 50 told everyone to backup and said "electricity and water don't mix" and then said "You'll all goin' die, so back the f*&k up" then security told 50 to end it and thats when he walked off. Then it took 5-10 minutes to get everyone out of the pool. I was one of the last ones out. Floyd threw out stacks of dollar bills, a few hundreds and twenties. He also tore up a few hundred dollar bills.

Britney was so boring. She looked stiff and uncomfortable. All of those people around her were there to distract us from the fact that she didn't do ANYTHING. What did they need Chriss Angel for?? What did he do?? NOTHING!!

OMG......................................what was that???????????????????

I feel sooooooo bad for Britney...seriously...she had the chance of her life to make not only a comeback, but to redeem herself from her actions lately by doing what she does "best", which is perform.......................BUTTTTTTT............ what the f*** WAS THAT???? SHE just screwed everything >>>> her outfit was awful, she was at her worst lipsynckn ever because she was soooo nervous, it just seemed like she was that thing that she pulled for "House of Blues"...which is a bad presentation compared on what she really used to pull off............anyways...just feel so bad for her....putting herself like that...such embarassment.......it was just sooo BORING...no sparks, no illusionism (what about the criss angel thing????)...I guess now we know what they have really been practicing lately, and certainly it had nothing to do with Miss Spears appearance at the VMA's.......................very sorry for her...............................................but for now.......I guess she asked for it.........

Her supposed comeback sucked. I can't believe she had the nerve to go onstage and lip sync and TRY to dance. It was horrible !

And GO 50cents !!!
