Ace Hood caught attention worldwide on social media outlets, but not for his music. The YMCMB/We the Best artist was the hot topic during Sunday night’s BET Awards after the bezel from his Rolex watch fell off during a pre-show interview with Bow Wow and Angela Simmons. Immediately after the watch malfunction, the accusations of wearing fake jewelry and jokes online poured in. Athletes and artists know for their own not-so-good publicity moments also chimed in.
Durng a visit to Power 106 L.A. on Tuesday afternoon, Ace spoke with The Los Angeles Leakers about the moment.
“When you spend so much money on a watch, certain things are not supposed to happen. My jeweler, I definitely had to fire the jeweler. He going through it, man.
I spent $60,000 on that watch, man. I was just as shocked as everybody else was when it did happen. It never happened to any of my other watches or anything. I looked up. I ain’t even know what it was. I figured it was my bracelet. It wasn’t no thing, though. For it to happen right then in that moment, I was like, ‘You could have happened anywhere else. I just performed. I just ripped down the stage, everything. But you chose to let it be there,’ that’s how I know the Devil be working.”
Lesson learned, select your jewelers wisely.
