Jay-Z VMA Performance Crashed By Lil Mama

by at . Comments

Leave it to Lil Mama, whoever that is, to try to close out the already-strange 2009 MTV Video Music Awards with one of the oddest moments of the night.

While it wasn't as ridiculous or rude as Kanye West's meltdown and hijacking of Taylor Swift's speech, the spectacle of Lil Mama climbing on stage for no reason during Jay-Z and Alicia Keys' VMA performance last night was still hilariously weird.

For nearly five minutes, Jay-Z and Alicia Keys were performing “Empire State of Mind,” a number that was to close the always-memorable MTV award show.

But then there was Lil Mama, appearing out of nowhere, standing awkwardly beside Jay and Alicia in a B-girl stance, whatever that is, as the song ended:

What the hell was Lil Mama doing on stage with Jay-Z?

In short, it was a puzzling and random conclusion to the evening.

A representative for Jay-Z, quoted by Entertainment Weekly this morning, says she has “No clue how it happened.” That makes about 10 million of us.

Viewers and celebrities alike had a field day with it. Fabolous even Twittered "lil mama is JayZ’s hypeman, she jus got there late!" That one's pretty good.

It's actually not as remarkable as it sounds, especially following Kanye's drunken antics, but watching Jay-Z’s understated, yet perplexed-seeming body language when he sees her unannounced appearance is still worth watching.

well damn...haha! it's funny and rude at the same time. She had no business going up there. I know damn well she would be heatedddd if someone crashed her performance.


jazy is stupid and dum


hi jay-z is the best you are to dont leave him a lone do your thing


lilmama jay-z should be over that you must want to be like kanye west i thout i liked you for a munite but your a bitch bye gay ass


Yaw let lil'mama break her punky ass off! I like her snatch anyway with gloss on it!! U made it whore....


i think lil mama was okay... in a way it was wrong because she just came out of no where but she was just having fun... jay z aint all that to be acting like he is the shit. The only reason he hot is because he is married to beyonce. But i think it was cool. He tried to blow her off but his music is played out, so he did all that for nothing


I think its stupid to get mad over no big deal so what she came on stage for all of 5 freaking seconds too many important things in the world to be worried about Jay Z's ego he not even hot right now why the hell was he even performing


Hell, Stevie Wonder could see what was going on. Either Jay-Z is fucking Lil Mama, or he promised her the part. Believe me, that was not a "I was so hyped" move. She stepped to HIM not Alicia, with her hands on her hips and a "I am pissed" look. How many times did she roll her eyes, and who was she gritting on and rolling eyes at after the final stance? Jay-Z had that deer in the headlights look that said "Please don't pick now to act out. Please don't embarrass me on this show, in front of my wife". I am a 43 year old married woman with children. I know that I am busted look. Jay-Z is fucking Lil Mama and it was written all over both of their faces. Sorry Miss B, but you need to check your man. See if he smells like Lil Mama when he come home tonight. I agree with the other women...


wtf man! who is she?? lil' stupid?? or lil' idiot?? you ruin the moment !!! known your own fame!!! you not suit standing with mega star like Jay-Z and Alicia!!! stupid stupid stupid Stupidiot!!!!!


lil mama is wack she shouldnt even be jugding the americas best dance crew she should jst be cleaning the streets and stop embarasing herselfe like tht maybe she wanted to get close to jz and make beyonce jelouse
