Jay-Z Opens Up About Lil Mama
Three the hard way: Lil Mama, Jay-Z and Alicia Keys
Mr. Knowles called into Angie Martinez‘s Hot 97FM show yesterday to finally open up about Lil Mama crashing his VMA set with Alicia Keys.
“I would never do that. I would never have the nerve to do that. We go to rehearsals, we do run-throughs, and we work really hard on the performance to put on a show for people. And to interrupt that moment for us, I don’t think that was the right thing to do. “
“I actually thought it was the equivalent of what Kanye did to Taylor Swift but nobody really talked about that because I’m not a lil sweet girl from middle America.”
“I’m cool with her being excited and all that, but you also have to understand people put in work to make that performance happen–the planning of it, there’s alotta planning that went into that performance. To disrupt that is out of line.”
“I was a little angry–but what imma do, fight Lil mama?”
