Bow Wow has offered some sort of an explanation for those Instagram photos that made him the joke of the internet Wednesday.
The rapper broke his silence during a Hot 97 interview (above) Thursday morning, claiming there was actually some sort of "scientific" explanation for what went down.
"I love it, because people don’t understand the scientific method to my madness," he said. "I’m about to have to the biggest show on WE tv, period. It’s a scientific method to my madness. You gotta just watch the show. Everything’s for the show."
Bow Wow deferred all questions about the photos, which sparked the hilarious #BowWowChallenge on Twitter, by repeatedly plugging his upcoming WE tv reality show, "Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta."
He also added that he "couldda been on set" in the Snapchat showing him flying commercial ... and towards the end of the interview said if he ever flew commercial, it would be first class, "always."
The 30-year-old rapper and actor learned the hard way Wednesday why it's a risky move to fake financial success in the age of social media and smart phones. After bragging about flying on a private jet while traveling to NYC to promote his show, he was photographed flying a regular commercial airliner by another passenger.
It didn't take long for social media sleuths to do a reverse image search on the original photograph to find the same private jet shot on an advertisement for a VIP transportation service in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Soon after, Twitter created a full-blown #BowWowChallenge - encouraging people to “fake it like Bow Wow and Tweet like a millionaire.”
