Spotted: 50 Cent Hits Up Jolly Old England

Every day a multitude of stars wanders through the halls of MTV News to talk about their latest projects and goof around with our intrepid correspondents. But sometimes we catch stars elsewhere, and that’s why we put together Spotted!, a daily compendium of stars in the wild.

50 Cent took some time out of his preparation for the release of his new album Before I Self Destruct (which hits stores on November 23) to fly across the pond to promote a new movie. 50 stars in “Dead Man Running,” a British gangster picture that hits cinemas next week. The man born Curtis Jackson plays Thigo, a mob boss who gives an associate 24 hours to repay him the 100,000 pounds in cash he is owed, and the film follows the breathless search to scare up the money before 50′s character can strike. 50 hit London for the premiere and was spotted at the Mayfair Hotel, a top-shelf luxury spot in England’s capital. But he’s not going to let his intercontinental travel get in the way of the march for Before I Self Destruct: According to his official Web site, the video for his new song “Crime Wave” will premiere tonight on the page.

Mr. Jackson wasn’t the only star on the street yesterday. The boys from Tokio Hotel paid a visit to a Best Buy store in New York, while Ciara enjoyed a meal at the Phillipe Chow restaurant in Beverly Hills, California.
