50 Cent Apologizes For Kanye West "Gay Tour" Comments

In a move no one could have ever predicted, 50 Cent has apologized for comments he made about Kanye West and Lady Gaga's now scrapped journey -- saying he didn't mean to offend with his "gay tour" remarks.
"During an interview with Angie Martinez yesterday, certain comments I made were taken entirely out of context," 50 said. "When I referred to the Lady Gaga tour as 'the gay tour,' I was basically repeating what I thought she had referred to the tour in the past. It was not my intention to offend anyone. I don't have a problem with anyone's lifestyle and have no issue with Lady Gaga. She makes great music."

50 made headlines on Thursday (October 1) for insinuating Kanye West was gay because of his choice of audience and quickly received a ton of backlash from gay rights groups.

"I have nothing against them, but he's cool with them. He goes, drops his video off to them. Remember 808s & Heartbreak? Where'd he premiere it? Ellen Degeneres. He went there to premiere his video. He's conscious of the gay community and wants them to buy his CDs," he told Angie Martinez.

Regardless of 50's feelings about the nationwide romp, Live Nation has reportedly pulled the plug on the West/Gaga tour due to undisclosed reasons.
