Cyndi Lauper says that 50 Cent is now a “good guy” despite encouraging gay people to commit suicide in 2010, reports Pink News.

The rapper - real name Curtis Jackson - tweeted at the time “If you a man and your over 25 and you don’t eat pu**y just kill yourself damn it. The world will be a better place.”

In the same year, the rapper tweeted: “Perez Hilton calld [sic] me douchebag so I had my homie shoot up a gay wedding. wasnt his but still made me feel better.”

However, Jackson was added to the line-up this year for Cyndi Lauper’s annual True Colors Fund Home for the Holidays concert in support of homeless LGBT youth and in an interview with Buzzfeed, she said:

“50, god bless him – he’s a good guy.

“People evolve…that is what you have to leave yourself open for. You change the world when you change your mind.

“I want to inspire kids to show that they have hope.”

Nicki Minaj and Beyonce Practice Some Sensual Self-Love in 'Feeling Myself' - LISTEN

Minaj

Nicki Minaj's self-love song "Feeling Myself" featuring Beyonce was leaked online earlier today ahead of Minaj's The Pinkprint album release on Monday. 

PinkprintMTV writes about the track:

“Feeling Myself” has a confident, almost sinister “bow down” vibe and serves as the perfect follow-up to their “Flawless” team-up. Bey provides the sultry, repetitive “feelin’ myself” throughout the song, along with some choice harmonies and this killer verse: “Changed the game with that digital drop/ Know where you was when that digital popped.”

Give it a listen, AFTER THE JUMP...

It's that time of the year again for those 'best of 2014' lists, and the three of us will all be sharing our top tracks from this past year over the next 3 weeks. It's been a great year for music, and hopefully you all have enjoyed the variety of disco, house, pop, and techno music we've shared in 2014.

10. Roisin Murphy - 'Ancora Ancora Ancora'

2014 marked the official return of Roisin Murphy, seven years after her last full release, the massive Overpowered LP.  Her Italian language Mi Senti EP was comprised mostly of covers of Italian pop and disco songs, including 'Ancora Ancora Ancora.'  Severino (of the famed Horsemeat Disco) and Nico de Ceglia remixed this into a beautiful piano-laden track that showcases Murphy's vocal chops.  Supposedly, a new full length album is in the works for her in 2015. 

Check out the rest of my top 10, AFTER THE JUMP...

Talented Twerker Julian Serrano is Brandishing His 'Booty' Again: VIDEO

Serrano

Julian Serrano, who developed an internet fanbase after twerking up some eggs in the kitchen, shakes his ass-ets once again in a riff on J Lo's 'Booty' video.

Serrano had dropped an earlier clip using the made-for-twerk track but this new one is quite a bit more deluxe, and probably not appropriate for most offices.

Happy hump day, AFTER THE JUMP...

Perfumegenius

Too Bright is the third album from the out gay Seattle-based artist Perfume Genius.

You may recall the videos for "Queen" and "Grid" here on Towleroad as well as his earlier clips for "Dark Parts" which featured members of his family and "Hood", which featured the late adult performer Arpad Miklos brushing his hair.

This week PG (aka Mike Hadreas) dropped the video for "Fool", directed by Charlotte Rutherford, who also directed "Grid", and the clip features Hadreas rollerblading into situations that get more surreal by the moment, culminating in a dance performance with several life-size black fowl and a panel of judges.

Enjoy, AFTER THE JUMP...
