50 Cent has a crush on Dame Helen Mirren.

The 48-year-old New York-born rapper recently spoke to Men's Health about his fixation with the iconic actor, who he claims will stay "sexy forever".

“She’s sexy. She’ll look at you and you go ‘Oh s**t.’ I don’t care how old she get. I don’t give a f**k what nobody says. She’s sexy.”

Fiddy, real name Curtis Jackson, first encountered Mirren at the Monte Carlo Television Festival in 2017, where the Academy Award winning actor was accompanied by her husband, the acclaimed director Taylor Hackford.

“Her husband is just right there with her, and he just go, like ‘Ah yeah, that’s just what she does.’ But he notices what you notice. That she’s sexy. It’s her confidence — it’s everything she is for all of these years. She’s gonna be sexy forever.”

We know what you're thinking and, currently, we are not sure whether or not this interview set the world record for the number of times the word sexy has been used. But if 50 hasn't achieved the record, he cannot be far off.

The In Da Club rapper's recent comments about Mirren are not the first time he has opened up about his admiration for the 78-year-old icon. During a 2018 appearance on Conan O'Brien, the Grammy and Emmy winner expressed how, you guessed it, sexy Mirren was.

“I just saw her in the south of France … she just looked at me and there was this interesting thing going on in her eyes. There is this confidence thing there from being tested and proven. She looks at you like she knows she’s sexy.”

O'Brien jokingly asked 50 if he would shoot his shot with Mirren if Hackford wasn't around any more, to which the rapper replied, “As long as he’s alive I wouldn’t say yes … it’s not right. I don’t want anyone waiting on me to get knocked off.”

In the past, 50 has been romantically linked with the likes of Meagan Good, Joy Bryant, Ciara and even Chelsea Handler. For the last four years, however, he has been in a relationship with model Jamira Haines, who also goes by the name Cuban Link (not to be confused with Cuban American rapper Felix Delgado, who also goes by the same stage name).

Mirren, meanwhile, has been married to An Officer And A Gentleman director Hackford since 1997. The couple had been together for almost a decade before that, having initially met during the audition process for White Nights, which Hackford made Mirren wait forever for before she could read for the part of Galina Ivanova. Mirren is Hackford's third wife, although she has only ever been married to the director. The legendary actor did date Liam Neeson for five years between 1980 and 1985.

But given that anything can happen in Hollywood, and with all respect to Haines and Hackford, can we all manifest a coupling of 50 and Dame Helen, please? Which then spins off into a reality show? Please and thank you.
