The “In Da Club” rapper, 44, gave an interview for WSJ. Magazine’s series, “My Monday Morning,” and spoke of his isolation experience amid the coronavirus outbreak.
“This is day five, right here. I feel there are no safer options out here. There’s not much. I guess when I want to go to the gym I’ll go to a track and I’ll just run outside,” 50 Cent said of his isolation experience. “Still, you know what they say, keep your social distance. Being conscious of that.”
Though the musician is passionate about keeping up with his exercise regimen, he warned that others aren’t sharing his physical zest.
“But a lot of people are not making adjustments, so they’re just going to sit home and they’re going to get fat,” he told the outlet. “They’ll get fat.”
The “Power” star also said he’s turning to “really fit” women on social media to help him train instead of using his personal trainer.
“Yeah, on Instagram, stuff like that. For me, it’s something like, I don’t want to not be able to do it when it’s a girl telling me to do it,” 50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson III, explained. “When you’re training legs, you should definitely train with women, because that’s all they train.”
“After a while you’re like, ‘Yo, what is this?’ You know what I’m saying? Like, ‘What the f–k you all been doing in here?'”
