50 Cent made a surprise appearance during a hip-hop extravaganza at the Super Bowl halftime show last year, which is regarded as one of the best in recent memory. Despite enjoying his time on stage, he admitted he has one major regret about his performance.

Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar were in charge of headlining the Super Bowl LVI halftime show, while 50 Cent made a guest appearance alongside Anderson .Paak. He performed his smash hit “In Da Club” while suspended upside down from the ceiling, but he now feels this wasn’t really necessary.

50 Cents’ performance spawned many memes after the Super Bowl and the rapper welcomed them with open arms, but he still wishes he entered the stage differently.

“I think that was a mistake for the Super Bowl. Everybody else walked in regular, the songs still went over and they got the trophy, too. They all won an Emmy. They got the same thing I got and I had to put myself upside down,” he told USA Today.

The Super Bowl LVI halftime show was met with critical acclaim and it went on to receive three Emmys, including Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Variety Special (Live).
