50 Cent Shoots Three New Videos for Curtis, Explains BET Awards Performance
Yesterday (June 28), 50 Cent appeared on BET’s 106 & Park to explain his controversial performance at the BET Awards on Tuesday night where he failed to rap the entire first verse of his new single, “Amusement Park.” After the performance, fans, bloggers and message boards went into a frenzy, contemplating whether Fif was lip-synching, his microphone got cut off or he just forgot his own lyrics. 50 cleared up the controversy yesterday at 106 & Park. “Everything doesn’t quite happen the way you practice it,” 50 said. “You see, I was hit by the aerialist and I was wibby-wobbling coming down. 25 feet in the air, man, you fall — can’t nobody help me with that, you know what I mean? Then by the time you get down, you try and regroup to fight, you got the pyro going off, the music starts, we four bars into the song, you know — I just wasn’t concentrating.”
In addition, MTV News has reported that 50 has shot three more videos for his upcoming album, Curtis, which will be released on September 4. Fif’s next official single will be a collaboration with Justin Timberlake and Timbaland entitled “She Want It.” While “Follow My Lead,” which features Robin Thicke, was rumored to be the next single, MTV confirmed with Interscope Records that the video was indeed shot but it being shelved. In addition, MTV has reported 50 has shot a video for a remix of “Straight to the Bank,” but representative’s at Interscope claim to have no knowledge of the video’s existence.
