Instead of sitting in the front row at the Grammys with Jay and Bey, 50 Cent held court at the Knicks-Lakers game with his new best friend: Meryl Streep. And although the Oscar-winning actress was attending the game with her husband, sculptor Don Gummer, that didn’t stop her from holding hands and talking animatedly with her new bestie. Conversation topics (we hope) included his feelings on whether “August: Osage County” did the play justice and Meryl’s favorite flavor of Vitamin Water.

In a series of shots posted on his Instagram, Cent (Mr. Cent? Fiddy? 50?) showed off his budding friendship with the Oscar-winning actress. 

See how Meryl is clearly paying attention to something else while being forced to be a slice of bread in a Kobe Bryant-50 Cent-Meryl sandwich.

But don’t worry, that doesn’t mean she didn’t want to be here. Watch her ponder how great her life is while things got, as 50 described, “a little gangsta.”
