Erin Andrews: Awkward kiss with 50 Cent was 'my fault'
She says it was simply a coordination problem
Late last month, sports reporter Erin Andrews was on the hunt for Danica Patrick at the Daytona 500 when she crossed paths with 50 Cent, who promptly puckered up in greeting. Her on-air reaction, which consisted of a double cheek dodge and a hasty retreat, had the Interwebs buzzing over whether she had dissed him. She insists that wasn't the case.
"He's the best," she assures "Access Hollywood." "I mean, come on."
So, what happened?
"It was my fault. I was rushed," explains Andrews, who says her interview plans were waylaid when the drivers all went for a final restroom stop before the four-hour race. She spotted 50 and was relieved to have a way to fill some airtime. But she was apparently unprepared for his peck hello.
"I went one way, he went the other," she tells "Extra." "They're screaming in my ear, 'Danica! Danica! Go get Danica!' I whipped my neck. I made him look bad. But he's my partner in the energy drink [SK Energy], and we all know what 50 did with Vitamin Water, and I hope this does just as well."
I wouldn't apologize he shouldn't put her in an awkward situation in the first place. If you or I tried to kiss her like that we would have gone straight to jail.
Just remember not everyone has bad taste like the Kardashians. Give Erin some respect.
APOLOGIZE----HOW IGNORANT OR A FORCED ISSUE FROM HER BOSSES !! Anyone who would believe/condone this is brain dead !! All 50 wanted was to get her in one of the race car haulers and tap a little white 'short row' !! Where are people's brains or morals ?? If a regular type fan had tried this, he would be in jail !!!
To apologize makes Andrews look like an 'easy beyouch' !!!
Why do some people think that it is Ok to walk up a plant a kiss on someone they don't know. If I'd have seen that plunger coming at me I would have turned my head too.
If he was attempting to kiss her on the cheek, that would be fine and acceptable. Kissing a woman on the cheek, even at a first meeting is polite. But going for her lips, not okay, unless she wants it.
What makes this egotistical pompous brat "50 Cent" think he has the right to invade any woman's personal space? Entitlement? Arrogance? Boastfulness?
How about simply he is a jerk?
