Lil Mama Interrupts Jay-z's Vmas Performance

JAY-Z kept his cool after LIL MAMA rushed the stage during his duet with ALICIA KEYS at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday (13Sep09).
The rapper was closing the ceremony at New York's Radio City Music Hall with a rousing rendition of his ode to the Big Apple, Empire State of Mind, when the Lip Gloss hitmaker jumped onstage and began bobbing her head to the beat.
Jay-Z refused to put down his mic and tapped the rapper on her leg to usher her off the stage, before telling her, "You T-Paining right now!"
The quip was in reference to his performance at the Summer Jam in New Jersey in June (09), when hip-hop star T-Pain joined Jay-Z onstage unannounced as he performed D.O.A. (Death of Auto-Tune).
The evening's ceremony was full of unexpected stage invaders - earlier in the night, rapper Kanye West interrupted Taylor Swift's acceptance speech, proclaiming the Best Female Video prize belonged to Jay-Z's wife Beyonce.
