Someone Needs To Explain Why Meryl Streep And 50 Cent Are BFFs All Of A Sudden

Okay wait. Hold everything, don't say another word. I'm gonna need to get back to basics with this one, I think, and just get the who / what / where / when / why covered before I try to understand any of the other layers of this, because my brain is too overwhelmed with confusion and questions that end in flurries of punctuation.

While the rest of us were watching T-Swift get snubbed at the Grammys, Fiddy and Meryl were just hanging out at Madison Square Garden watching a basketball game between the LA Lakers and the New York Knicks. You know, as you do on a Sunday night in the big city when you have NO REASON TO EVEN KNOW EACH OTHER.

Honestly, how did their paths even cross? My mind is boggled. Does every celebrity have some sort of gravitational force that draws them inexorably toward other celebrities, until finally they're sitting next to each other in the floor seats, clasping hands in excitement, quietly free-styling back and forth at each other about the beads of sweat forming on the upper lips of the players. And then naturally their friendship cemented by rhyming couplets and sharing Oscar-nomination stories, they went downstairs to meet up with the third and final member of their party — Kobe Bryant.

Honestly I would believe anythign at this point…someone just please needs to give me an explanation of how this trifecta came to be.
