Meanwhile, the post-Video Music Awards mea culpas continued with pint-sized MC Lil Mama’s statement on her joining Jay-Z and Alicia Keys onstage at the end of Sunday night’s show, which honestly might have been more notable for how many people said “really? huh, I missed that” in its aftermath than for anything that actually happened. “I did not mean any disrespect towards Jay-Z or Alicia Keys,” she said in a statement released to MTV. (Who, by the way, employ her as host of their dance-off show America’s Best Dance Crew.) “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.” Somehow, she didn’t manage to mention that her latest song—which leaked, OMG, yesterday!—is out. And funnily enough for someone who tried to engage in a little spotlight-stealing, it’s called “See Me Everywhere”! I mean, what are the odds?
A conspiracy-minded type might wonder whether or not the powers that be at MTV first tried to get JC Chasez to engage in these sorts of shenanigans. Cough.
