Rapper 50 Cent is convinced love eludes him because he always puts business before pleasure.
The rap star, who has dated Vivica A Fox and has been romantically linked with Get Rich Or Die Tryin' co-star Joy Bryant, insists he's single - and will be for some time.
The In Da Club icon, real name Curtis Jackson, admits he's too busy chasing his professional goals to form lasting personal relationships.
He explains: "Because I'm ambitious, I spend a lot of time handling my business, setting goals and accomplishing them. But the women I deal with don't understand why I'm so wrapped up in accomplishing them.
"Until I find someone who understands those boundaries, I belong by myself."
