At least he's owning up to its awfulness!
50 Cent recently threw one of the worst first pitches in baseball's entire history, and the rapper admits its epic badness was all real and was no publicity stunt!
Although he's still claiming the ball "slipped" out of his hand — so he's not owning his mistake all the way, ha!
Here's what he recently said during a Friday interview with Good Morning America:
"It slipped! It slipped out of my hand. I'm not a professional pitcher, I make music."
Many have wondered if the fact that his new album Animal Ambition's impending release had something to do with the pitch, but 50 denies any such stunt making! He even claims the police stopped him to make fun of the superstar rapper's noodle arm. He said:
"I actually got pulled over by New York City police, they pulled me over in my car, and he pulled me over and I said, 'I got my license, right?' Because I was a little nervous when he pulled me over. I was, like, 'Oh no, what did I do?' and then he said, 'You know that pitch was terrible.'"
Well, at least the ribbing is all in good fun!
And if anything it might improve his music sales — which would be worth all the embarrassment this has been causing him!!
