50 Cent has dismissed reports suggesting he's keen to sign former One Direction star Zayn Malik to his label, but he would like to work with the pop star.

The rapper admits he is a fan of the Brit, who quit the boy band in March, but there's no truth to stories he's working on a deal with the singer.

"I like him as an artist, so maybe we'll get a chance to collaborate at some point... I like his music."

And the rap star jokes he sometimes uses One Direction's music in the bedroom, adding, "You can use that as an alternative (for) the sexual experience."

The In Da Club star, 40, admits he occasionally listens to his own music while getting intimate.

"It's uptempo, like EDM (electronic dance music)... Some people require the smooth grooves... (but) I try to follow the beat."
