Remember when rapper 50 Cent tried to lay a kiss on ESPN reporter Erin Andrews at the Daytona 500, but was denied? If you don’t, you should definitely check out the GIF that shows it again, and again. Andrews has an explanation, though. She says it’s not that she was avoiding the kiss, but she was looking for driver Danica Patrick.
Talking to Access Hollywood, Andrews says, “He grabbed me, I went one way, they screamed ‘Danica,’ I whipped my neck, I got whiplash and it’s fine.” As 50 Cent leaned in for the kiss, it looks like Andrews is caught off guard, before she offers her cheek.
Andrews says she has nothing but love for 50 Cent, though. “We’re actually business partners,” she explains, “I’m one of the spokespeople for SK Energy.” SK Energy is a drink company the rapper co-founded. Before her interview ended, Andrews made it clear once more she wasn’t snubbing the rapper, adding, “He’s the best. I mean, come on.”
