What I learned on the Red Carpet Part II

50 Cent has Nine Bodyguards, and a REALLY Nice Watch.
50 cent Performed at TAO Park City for MySpace Nights, presented by T-Mobile Sidekick LX

When people are about to walk down the red carpet we get notified by the Public Relations person in charge - sometimes the notification is who they are and how to spell their name, and other times it's a warning that we shouldn't crowd 50 Cent because he has 9 bodyguards and they WILL intervene if 50 Cent is crowded. Good to know, thanks for the heads up. Why anyone needs 9 bodyguards in Utah is beyond me, but I shot the image of 50 Cent and watched him get interviewed by E-TV right next me, and sure enough, a couple bodyguards were shoulder to shoulder with him during the whole interview. Even though we weren't warned about it I tried not to make eye contact with any of his security personnel, I just tried to act casual... but when you're trying to act casual you start feeling suspicious, at least I do, so then I started worrying that I looked suspicious. Then I thought to myself, "Why should I feel suspicious, it's not like I'm going to try and rob 50 Cent..." But then I noticed his watch and for a split second I thought to myself, "I wonder how much that watch would weigh me down if I started running with it." And then I realized that if I was wearing a watch like that around town I'd want some bodyguards too... and come to think of it, I'm pretty sick and tired of people crowding me.
