Fashion legend Giorgio Armani has declared himself an unlikely fan of 50 CENT.

The 71-year-old Italian designer enjoys listening to an eclectic range of music - and he lists rap and rock among his favourites.

He says, "My taste in music has always been eclectic. I love Cole Porter, and I love 50 Cent. "If I need to put myself in a good mood, I go straight for the Outkast.

"I believe the one thing that everybody needs to do before they're through is see U2 live."
