50 Cent regrets hanging upside down at the Super Bowl Halftime Show. Aside from the kicks, throws and runs happening on the field, there is another element of Super Bowl action that’s equally important to many: The Halftime Show. The televised spectacle can often be better than the actual game. It usually features celebrities and musicians performing hit songs in front of an adoring audience.
50 Cent Regrets Hanging Upside Down at the Super Bowl Halftime Show
This year’s halftime show was a rap-heavy affair that featured Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, Kendrick Lamar and Eminem. The lineup was a collaboration between the NFL and Roc Nation, Jay-Z’s entertainment company. Initially, reports said that the NFL didn’t want 50 Cent included in the event. He ended up insisting to be added, and performed his biggest hit during the show, “In Da Club.” During the performance, he recreated the music video for the song by hanging upside down.
Fans were impressed with the rapper’s performance. Yet they were also shocked that he looked quite a bit heavier than they remembered from the video. The rap mogul recently opened up about his Super Bowl appearance. During his USA Today interview, he said that he regretted hanging upside down during his performance. He admitted he was scared to fall down and hurt himself.

He also said that his “aim” was to bring the city of Los Angeles together for the show. However, he admitted that he wasn’t satisfied with the outcome and that he hoped to perform at the Super Bowl again in the future.
He also revealed that he lost a lot of weight since the Super Bowl and that people made fun of him for being upside down during his performance. Several social media users came to his defense, claiming that he was just flexing his arm muscles and nothing more. One person even went as far to say that he thinks that 50 Cent is still hot and that he’s definitely not fat.
