Lil Mama, hits up the power 105.1 morning show with the breakfast club crew consisting of Charlamagne, DJ Envy, and also Angela Yee . Of course Charlamagne had to take stabs at Lil Mama for looking older in the face, trying to bring her down say she was currently irrelevant, Lil Mama eventually breaks down in tears explaining how she was always on her grind even during the time when she recorded her first album when her mom was battling cancer (which has since passed away). Other topics include her being compared to Nicki Minaj and vice versa as well as the MTV incident when she went on stage during Jay-Z and Alicia Keys performance.
If you remember, two weeks ago Lil Mama was spotted on the red carpet in LA for the MTV Movie awards rocking a futuristic look with a blonde bob. From previous looks of Lil Mama, we all assumed that she was instantly copying Nicki Minaj. However she had to the opportunity to speak with VIBE and said that actually Nicki was inspired by her after seeing her wear the look on the set of America’s Best Dance Crew.
On Her MTV Movie Awards Outfit & Nicki Minaj Copying Her Style But my cut is blunt and futuristic and Nicki Minaj started wearing that bob on her head after she came to my show, so at the end of the day I know what I do and I know what I possess and I know who I am. I’m a trendsetter. The biggest form of flattery is imitation so I’m flattered. I understand the universal law. I’m not confused, I don’t feel like a follower. I started so many things that new artists are doing now anyway –my style, the way I’m aggressive on a track, the way I come through, the way my beat bangs. There are so many things that were borrowed, that I influenced that’s happening in music right, so I’m far from discouraged.
Yeah, she was a guest on America’s Best Dance Crew and immediately afterwards, everywhere she went, she was wearing the haircut, the same exact way. But that doesn’t make me feel like ‘Oh she’s trying to be down’ like how I said about our culture. I’m actually flattered because she imitated me and it felt like something that I was doing was cute and in time for the fashion and for the season, so it’s like let’s live, let’s do it
I mean every artist tries to reinvent themselves by copying an artist from maybe a decade ago, but while the artist is still relevant?! Kind of awkward. Lil Mama was all smiles as she hit the red carpet at the Gibson Amphitheatre in California for the MTV Movie Awards dressed in a wig she stole of Nicki, with black embellished dressed with some platform boots to match.
Doesn’t she look like storm from XMEN in the close up?!
Now ain’t this some ish? At first when I seen the bamboozle actions of Lil Mama messing upJay and Alicia’s performance live at the VMA’s I was just like wow. I myself kept wondering, how in the hell no one tried to STOP her? …Well in all actuality someone did…Beyonce. Check out Bey trying to pull her and Lil Mama’s dumb*ss still went on stage. SMH
Lil Mama appears without all the glitz and glamour hair do’s on the Tyra Banks show. She talks on the incident that happened at the VMA’s. I’m mad that she made her entrance with the stance that had everyone talking. And on that VMA note.. she claims she didn’t see it was that serious?? if it wasn’t that serious then why you still haven’t heard from Jay-Z and Alicia?
Alicia Keys was interviwed on Todays Talk NBC, where she spoke about her startum and her rise as a well nurtured artist. During the interview she was asked about how she felt during her Empire State Of Mind performance when Lil Mama came on stage Alicia said:
“We can appreciate her being overwhelmed and inspired, but we would’ve preferred she did it from her seat”
I couldn’t agree more, with what Alicia Keys said!!
Yesterday we posted Lil Mama’sapology of crashing Jay’s performance by coming on stage out of no where. Here she sits down with MTV to speak on the incident and what Jay said to her… “I see you T-Paining”
So Lil Mama decides to apologizes for her coming on stage during Jay-Z and Alicia Keys Empire State of Mind performance at the VMA’s. Lil Mama says:
“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.”
I’m happy she decided to apologize, because i couldn’t help but think what she was doing up there, how, and why.
Lil Mama one of the judges from America’s Best Dance Crew, made a comment on last sunday’s competition towards Leiomy from the group Vogue Revolution. Apparently Leiomy was catching a t*tty attack and wanted to walk out on the group because she was home sick and she just wasn’t feeling the competition any more. Well in the end Lil Mama apologized to the GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Agaisnt Defamation)community. Here is what she said on the show:
“Leiomy, come on. Your behavior…it’s unacceptable. I just feel that you always have to remember your truth. You were born a man and you are becoming a woman. If you’re going to become a woman, act like a lady. Don’t be a bird, like ‘Oh my god, I’m not doing this!’ You know what I’m saying? It gets too crazy and it gets confusing. You’re doing this for America. Even though you’re the face for transgenders, you’re the face of America right now with this group and it’s not about anybody else. It’s about y’all. You know what I’m saying? So do it for the team. Do it for the team.”
Her apology note:
“I would like to clarify anything that was misunderstood from Sunday’s show. My remarks were never meant to be disrespectful regarding Leiomy’s gender nor offensive to the LGBT community, which has been a community that has supported me in all my endeavors. However, in hindsight, I recognize that my words may have come across as hurtful. I spoke with her privately after the taping to express that it was not my intent to offend her or any member of the transgender community and that I still live for Vogue Evolution.”
GLAAD Senior Director Rashad Robinson response:
“While we thank Lil Mama for her apology, this incident demonstrates the need for more education around the lives and experiences of transgender people. Lil Mama’s comments during her critique attempted to impose standards of conformity for gender identity and expression — a mistake that many people make,”
