Obama Makes 50 Cent And Crawford Late For Premiere

50 CENT and CHACE CRAWFORD turned up late for the premiere of their new movie after the route to the venue was blocked by President BARACK OBAMA's motorcade.
The rapper/actor and the Gossip Girl star were both due to walk the red carpet in New York City for the launch of their film, Twelve, but fans were left waiting after the cast got stuck in traffic as police shut off the surrounding streets to make way for the U.S. president.
When he finally made it to the cinema, 50 Cent explained his tardiness to reporters, saying, "It's interesting - the streets are blocked off for a few avenues. We had to go all the way around to get here, but he's the president."
While Crawford joked, "We shut down the street for the premiere and for me. I didn't want any traffic on Houston (Street) and then Obama just swooped in - figures! I mean, I called and invited him and texted him and he didn't want to come. It's just a mess!"
Lenny Kravitz's actress daughter Zoe admits she became so frustrated with the delays, she almost got out of her limousine and took the subway to the premiere.
She says, "We were in traffic for the longest time and I was like, 'What's going on?' I almost got out and took the subway, and the only reason I didn't was because it was so hot..."
