Rapper Curtis Jackson, 50 Cent, flexed his acting skills during his recent induction into the Hollywood Walk of Fame — saying that he faked emotions during his speech because he was unprepared.
Usually, for such a big moment, celebs would have a speech written or rehearsed, but 50 Cent says he winged it, feigning emotion to elicit a few “cool points,” he told the ladies of The View.
“I was working on that… to be emotional — And when I got there, I knew that when I was really under pressure, that I should just (pause and pretend to take a few breaths) — and I knew that that would give me just a little bit of cool points for getting emotional at that point.”
“I look at this like a lifetime achievement award,” 50 Cent said during his speech. “It’s cool. They’ll give me more. I know they’ll give me a lifetime achievement award because I’m not done, you know what I’m saying? So I’ll be back, like, they got to save space for me down the street.”
