There was a lot to talk about after watching the MTV VMA’s on Sunday…like what was Kanye thinking when he jumped on stage and dissed Taylor Swift and who was on stage when Jay-Z & Alicia Keys were performing “Empire State Of Mind” on the MTV VMA’s? Well, mystery solved…it’s rapper Lil Mama.

In a moment of excitement, Lil Mama jumped on stage and started to act like she was part of the performance. For the record, Lil Mama was not scheduled or asked to perform with Jay & Alicia and she is not on any tracks by Jay or Alicia.

Lil Mama said she “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.”

All this stage jumping, maybe MTV should think about better security…
