50 Cent Laughs Off Urine Throwing Fiasco

Rapper 50 CENT was so well paid at last year's (04) READING FESTIVAL in Britain, he didn't care when drunken audience members hurled bottles of urine at him.

His massive $542,000 (GBP285,000) pay cheque helped dampen the trauma of the insulting incident, because he received the mega-sum for just 15 minutes of work.

50 was forced to leave the stage early when disgruntled fans began firing verbal abuse and makeshift missiles at him.

The hip-hop star says, "It was one of the best gigs I ever did."
