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, the song was about New York, Lil Mama is from New York. So she probably decided "Hey, this is about where I come from, I should be up there." When she really shouldn't have.

Lil' Mama ruined it. It's been a while since it happened and I still watch the video over and over again. Lady Gaga is from New York but you didn't see her jump on stage and ruin a kodak moment at the end of the VMA's. Viva la Lil' Mama and Kanye West Meme!

Ok I cant stand lil mama.. I watch ABDC and I hate when she talks she talks like her shit dont stink! She looked stupid right then when she got up on stage. I hope she feels like a dumbass and her music sucks and the only way she can make money is if she works on shows because she has no talent!

it wasn't very nice of her to just put herself in Jz's way. he all most bumped into her. he was a class act by not acknowleged her in anyway. it was Alicia and Jz's moment and it was great desprite lil mama's stupid act. Just made her even more disliked among their peers. sad that she and Kanye have to act like idiots.
