For those who missed Fox’s Daytona 500 pre-race show, one of the moments that stood out was when 50 Cent played his P.I.M.P. hand on Erin Andrews.
“The one cool thing about the Daytona 500,” Andrews told viewers, “there are so many celebrities from outside the sport: actors, musicians, entrepreneurs, everybody just wanting to get an up-close and personal look at what is happening over here.”
En route to “the person who has stole the spotlight here at the Daytona 500, that’s, of course, Danica Patrick”, who steals the spotlight from the Daytona 500 pre-race show, but actor, musician and entrepreneur 50 Cent – who just happens to be the star of a new animated series that Fox has requested a pilot for.
But before “Fitty” will have any part of “Animation Domination,” the rapper, born Curtis Jackson, animatedly dominated Ms. Andrews for a few seconds.
“Of course, 50 Cent here,” Andrews said, as Cent made a beeline for the Fox personality, who could be seen immediately shuddering from Cent as he went to plant a smooch of gold on her cheek. “I gotta go talk to Danica Patrick,” Andrews told Cent before asking him, “What are you doing here?”
“I’m enjoying myself,” Cent told Andrews. “I’m enjoying all the festivities while we rollin’, so…” At that point, Cent proceeded to caboose Andrews’ posterior, as she hurriedly made her way to the track to find Patrick.
After her search for the polesitter proved unsuccessful, Andrews said to Chris Myers, “I cannot believe this is what you deal with all the time.
“Thank goodness 50 Cent is here, though, guys,” she facetiously added as they threw it back for the performance of the National Anthem.
Suffice it to say, 50 Cent himself was probably at full staff – with a new area to place his Raiders cap, probably.
