50 Cent apologizes for calling Lady Gaga/Kanye West show 'the gay tour'

Since Lady Gaga's tour with Kanye West was called off this week, the last thing they needed was sassback from 50 Cent, who called the ill-fated Fame Kills Tour "the gay tour" on a New York radio station. The rapper must have felt bad, though, because he apologized for it right away -- that Fiddy, he's all heart, you know.

MTV reports that Mr. Cent told Hot 97's Angie Martinez that Kanye was "cool with the gay folk," which wasn't well-received: "I have nothing against them, but he's cool with them. He goes, drops his video off to them," he said on Wednesday. "Remember 808s & Heartbreak? Where'd he premiere it? (The) Ellen DeGeneres (Show). He went there to premiere his video. He's conscious of the gay community and wants them to buy his CDs."

The very next day he took to his blog on ThisIs50.com and clarified his remarks.

"During an interview with Angie Martinez yesterday, certain comments I made were taken entirely out of context. 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," 50 Cent wrote. "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."

Needless to say, we don't think his yammering on the radio would have affected ticket sales. Kanye's mental health, on the other hand, might have soured things a bit.
