Lil Mama Still Trying to Remind You She Crashed the Stage at the VMAs Too

Lil Mama, the diminutive rapper best known for a song about lip gloss (called "Lip Gloss") is still busy trying to make her stage crashing at the VMAs into a big deal, nearly two days after the awards.


Mama, who jumped onstage at the end of "Empire State of Mind," wasn't even acknowledged by Jay-Z when she was onstage, and I didn't even mention her coming onstage when I wrote up the performance yesterday (or during the live-blog) because it seemed so desperate and bizarre (plus I wasn't sure of who it was).


While Kanye has had to apologize 1,800 times for a likely staged "controversy," no one (not even Jay-Z) has even asked for Lil Mama to apologize. But she did any way. Here's what she said:

"I did not mean any disrespect towards Jay-Z or Alicia Keys," the statement reads. "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."

It would have actually been cooler had she said, "I totally meant to disrespect Jay-Z and Alicia Keys. Screw those chumps." But no, here she is being overly deferential in an apology no one asked for. Consider yourself absolved, Lil Mama. [MTV]

Search engines also ignore Li'l Mama. I'm trying to search Lipgloss track to listen to it, the one that is showing up is Pulp's Lipgloss, an obscure song released somewhere in the early 90's. I'm not kidding.
