Ice Cube is disputing his own words after losing the MTV Movie Award for “Best Onscreen Duo” to “Fast and Furious” franchise stars Vin Diesel and Paul Walker, who he says earned the “sympathy” vote from fans because of his death in November.
“We had the best chemistry of everybody nominated, for us not to win was crazy,” Cube said.
“I wasn’t really mad we didn’t win. So I would never diss the actors who won. Not even Paul Walker. Seriously people,” Cube tweeted. “Don’t believe the hype.”
Cube, who launched his diverse career as a member of hip hop group N.W.A., also told USA Today he left MTV’s annual award show on Sunday shortly after he arrived, because he was “bored” and wanted to watch the Los Angeles Lakers play the Memphis Grizzlies instead.
He clarified on Twitter: “They told me our category wasn’t gonna be televised. So I left. Just promoting that RIDE ALONG DVD.”
Here are the rest of the rap icon’s tweets:
Re: The sympathy vote: We should honor people before they die. That’s all. Shame on you “make something out of nothing” ass reporters. Smh
Re: MTV Awards. Ice Cube is not a sore loser. I was born losing. This winning shit is what I gotta get use to.
Last tweet and I’mma leave it alone. Remember this: A lie travels further then the truth. Damn the devil is busy.
And Paul Walker fans don’t trip. I was a fan too.
