50 Cent Shows Off New, Longer Hairstyle at Film Premiere

File this under headlines we never thought we’d write: 50 Cent‘s choice of hairstyles has really turned heads over the past year.

Appearing at the premiere of his dramatic new film ‘Things Fall Apart,’ at Paseo Herencia in Aruba on Tuesday (June 14), the G-Unit rapper-aspiring film mogul proudly debuted a surprising new look, wearing a longer than usual, texturized perm and beard to match.

50 previously made headlines while preparing for the Mario Van Peebles-helmed film, dropping a reported 54 lbs. to play the role of Deon Barnes, a cancer-stricken University of Michigan football player whose NFL dreams are dashed by his bout with disease.

Still looking slim from the drastic weight loss, the once hulking Queens MC has been spotted rocking a variety of hairstyles for the role, including a completely bald look, and over-the-top, ‘Pimpin’ Curly‘-style locks.

Where 50’s hair odyssey will take him next is anyone’s guess; he was most recently cast as blind DJ Shamus Cocobolo in the film adaptation of Dean Koontz novel ‘Odd Thomas,’ a film about a clairvoyant cook who foils a satanic plot. Let your imagination run wild with that one.
