The post-VMA apology tour continues, headlined by Kanye West (who even the U.S. President thinks is a jackass) and featuring Lil Mama on the undercard.
Lil Mama, whoever that is, issued a statement to explain why she ran on stage during Jay-Z and Alicia Keys’ performance to close out Sunday night's show.
“I did not mean any disrespect towards Jay-Z or Alicia Keys,” the rapper and judge on America’s Best Dance Crew says. “I admire them and look up to them as role models. ‘Empire State of Mind’ just had my emotions running high."
"In that moment I came up on stage to celebrate two icons singing about NY.”
AMERICA'S BEST STAGE-CRASHER: Lil Mama was just giving props, yo!
So in conclusion, Lil Mama ran on stage for two reasons:
- “Empire State of Mind” is a cool song (no argument here).
- It made her want to give props to her two favorite stars.
Lil Mama may want to consider that "celebrating icons" by randomly popping up next to them in the middle of a live television performance is what most law enforcement officials consider stalking and can result in a restraining order.
