50 Cent's unexpected (and sexual) explanation for his terrible pitch

50-Cent-Pitch.jpg

Rapper, entrepreneur, actor, and investor Curtis James Jackson III, better known by his stage name 50 Cent, can add a new credit to his bio: God-awful pitcher.

The Queens-born rapper threw the first pitch at a Mets game last week, and missed, terribly. We mean really terribly. Really, really terribly. The Internet quickly responded, dubbing Fiddy’s misstep one of the worst pitches ever, if not the worst. READ FULL STORY

Rihanna was basically naked at the CFDA Awards

Rihanna shone bright like a diamond Swarovski crystals at the Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards Monday night.

The singer was decked out in a custom dress, designed by Rihanna’s costume designer Adam Selman, that was made out of mesh and 216,000 pieces of twinkling cut glass. Here’s the thing about crystals and mesh, as Britney and Cher are well aware: They give the appearance of being totally naked…save for some kind of nude-colored thong, in Rihanna’s case at least.

The CFDA Awards are an annual event that “recognizes the outstanding contributions made to American fashion by individuals from all areas of the industry and related arts, with awards being given for design excellence.” Rihanna was named 2014’s Fashion Icon. Check out her full look below. READ FULL STORY

Mariah Carey rides the New York City subway in a floor-length gown

I-Am-Mariah.jpg

There can be miracles when you believe.

As long as your idea of a miracle is seeing the elusive chanteuse herself, Mariah Carey, riding the subway in New York City during your commute. Apparently, Mimi did just that Thursday night following a Fresh Air Fund gala. Naturally, she’s wearing a ballgown. Naturally, people can see what appears to be minimum two bodyguards in the shot. Naturally, she’s also got gloves on, because while she may sit with the people, she’s certainly not touching them.

“Glimpses of our joyride on the 1 train #subwayincouture,” Carey captioned the Instagram pic. Check out Carey — who joins a list of high-profile subway-goers that includes MadonnaJay-Z, and, uh, Rick Springfield —  enjoying one sweet day (with the people) below: READ FULL STORY

'Pretty Little Liars' star Lucy Hale calls debut album 'Road Between' a 'timeline' of her life

10 musicians who threw first pitches as badly as 50 Cent (if not worse) -- VIDEO

Did 50 Cent really throw the worst first pitch in baseball history Tuesday night? When the rapper tossed the ceremonial ball before the New York Mets-Pittsburgh Pirates game, Fiddy nearly took out a photographer standing at what normally would have been deemed a safe distance from home plate. It was, by all accounts, terrible.

But 50 Cent has plenty of competition when it comes to Most Embarrassing Pitching Performance by a Celebrity. And for some reason, musical artists in particular seem to be lacking in throwing skills. Here are the 10 wildest first pitches by pop stars, rappers, and rockers, ranked from nearly hittable to hittable if they’re suddenly playing golf.

One Direction's Zayn and Louis allegedly caught smoking pot

Must-List.jpg

Here’s one midnight memory the One Direction boys would like to fade by morning: Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson were “caught” on video allegedly smoking a joint while in a car in Peru. The clip, shot by Tomlinson, was obtained by The Daily Mail and since removed from their site.

According to the Telegraph, Tomlinson jokes on the five-minute tape: “So here we are, leaving Peru. Joint lit. Happy days!” As he speaks, he and Malik laugh and pass some kind of cigarette back and forth. A spokesman for the band told the Guardian that he has no further comment on the video, adding, “This matter is in the hands of our lawyers.” (A rep for the band didn’t immediately respond to EW’s request for comment.)

50 Cent throws truly terrible opening pitch at Mets game -- VIDEO

Great news for Carly Rae Jepsen: She’s no longer responsible for the worst celebrity first pitch ever.

That honor now goes to Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, courtesy of Tuesday night’s New York Mets-Pittsburgh Pirates game. Jackson wound up tossing the ball crookedly, to the area between home and first base. As the announcer for one station noted, “It’s good. He never [had to choose] between playing for the Mets and being a rapper.”

A laughing Jackson took it all in stride: While the pitch may not have met his pre-game Twitter promise of “This is gonna be good,” at least he’ll have his 14 Grammy nominations to fall back on.

Watch Curtis attempt to make the pitch (or die trying) below: READ FULL STORY
