Meryl Streep Proves She’s Just As Hip As Rapper 50 Cent

While everyone else was focused on the Grammys, a few celebrities skipped the festivities and made their own fun.

Meryl Streep and 50 Cent were seated next to each other court-side at the New York Knicks vs. Los Angeles Lakers Basketball at Madison Square Garden in New York City on Sunday night and definitely made some memories. 

Despite the huge, this-is-a-big-deal music awards show happening around the same time, the actress and rapper proved they have interests other than just their careers as they joked and enjoyed the game together.

After the game, 64-year-old Meryl Streep showed off her youth as she posed “gangster-style” with 50 Cent and famed basketball star Kobe Bryant. Both 50 Cent and Kobe posted on their Instagrams about their fun with the actress.

“Best ball KOBE, Best Rap 50,Best Actress Meryl Streep. TOP THAT #SMSAUDIO,” 50 Cent captioned one of the photos, stating the obvious about why we love and respect these three so much. Kobe commented as well, calling the threesome “legends.” I definitely don’t disagree with that. Seeing these three powerhouses together like that might be almost as good as the star-studded Grammys.
