11. Lil Mama Apologizes For Crashing VMA's Stage
Date: September 2009
What Happened: During Jay-Z and Alicia Keys' show-closing performance of "Empire State of Mind" at the same bizarro VMAs that Kanye interrupted, Lil Mama ran up onstage alongside the two artists. Jay quickly gestured for little miss "Lip Gloss" to leave the stage, but she stood her ground, posing in a B-girl stance while the two artists finished their the performance.
The next day, Lil Mama humbled herself in a statement to MTV: “"I did not mean any disrespect towards Jay-Z or Alicia Keys. I admire them and look up to them as role models. 'Empire State of Mind' had my emotions running high. In that moment I came up onstage to celebrate my two icons singing about NY.”
Complex Says: When Beyoncé physically tries to hold you back, that should be a solid hint to return to your seat.
