Just one day after having his colon stretched at a New York City hospital, according to Media Takeout, 50 Cent is following in Jay-Z's footsteps and weighing in on President Obama's decision to back gay marriage.
Appearing this morning on Funkmaster Flex's Hot 97 radio show, the G-Unit boss came out in support of same-sex couples' right to wed. "It was quite some time before we got a response out of Obama on same-sex marriage," 50 said. "And yeah, I'm cool. I would like people to actually be happy."

"Technically, I don't see where it fits into any religion. The Bible that they would read to marry you, it doesn't have anything in it that says same-sex. If it does, then I would like someone to point out that interpretation."
50 also discussed his personal life, referencing threesomes and admitting that same-sex sexcapades were part of his regular routine.
"I've encouraged same-sex activities. I've engaged in fetish areas a couple times. I'm for it."
50 Cent is latest celebrity to back President Obama's stance on gay marriage. Two days ago, 50's best friend and professional boxer Floyd Mayweather announced on Twitter that he supports equal rights for same-sex couples.
"I stand behind President Obama [and] support gay marriage. I'm an American citizen [and] I believe people should live their life the way they want."
