50 Cent recently admitted that his upside-down stunt during the Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show was a mistake and didn’t do him any favors. The G-Unit leader spoke about the experience in an interview with USA Today and shared that fans shouldn’t expect any acrobatics during his upcoming Get Rich Or Die Tryin’ 20th Anniversary Tour.
In the interview, 50 Cent said, “I think that was a mistake for the Super Bowl. Everybody else walked in regular, the songs still went over, and they got the trophy, too. They all won an Emmy. They got the same thing I got, and I had to put myself upside down.”
Despite the mishap, 50 Cent is preparing for his “Final Lap” tour, which kicks off on July 21 in Salt Lake City, Utah. The tour, which spans 64 dates, will journey across North America until September 17, making stops in major cities such as Toronto, Atlanta, Houston, Los Angeles, Chicago, Detroit, and New York City. The European leg of the tour will begin shortly after on September 28, with shows in the Netherlands, Germany, France, Italy, and the U.K., where it comes to a close on November 12.
During the interview, 50 Cent also addressed body shamers who criticized his appearance at the Super Bowl, joking that he’s been “getting it off” since the show. Despite the criticism, 50 Cent remains focused on delivering a whole new show to fans, touching on old favorites while also incorporating new hits.
The Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show, which featured performances from Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, and Mary J. Blige, was a historic moment for hip-hop. While 50 Cent’s upside-down stunt may have been a misstep, he’s ready to move forward and deliver a show that his fans will love.
