What could 50 Cent and Lance Bass have, even remotely, in common, that would put them up against each other? The answer is ... a new book. Both music men launched their new books on Tuesday, and had a little fun digging at each other, when asked who's memoir would reign supreme. "He doesn't stand a chance," the bullet-proof rapper told Ben Widdicombe of The New York Daily News, at the launch of his coffee-table book, 50 x 50. "With me, everything's a competition, so I bet you the end of next week, I'll be moving more copies than him. This is the same competition - this is Kanye West and 50 Cent all over again!" Fitty said, referring to his album battle with Kanye.
So, how would frosted-locks Lance take the challenge? "50's going down, that's all I have to say," he said while promoting his memoir, Out of Sync. "50, I don't want to playa-hater, but there's a lot that my book has [that his doesn't]. Like what, Lance? "I'm pretty sure he doesn't have any relationships with guys in that book. And I'm pretty sure he doesn't have any space training, either." Point taken. But has Lance been shot nine times and lived to tell about it? Doubtful. Let's not even compare the two -- and keep them on opposite sides of the Barnes and Noble.
