“I actually thought it was equivalent to what Kanye did to Taylor Swift, but nobody really talked about that because I’m not a sweet little girl from the middle of America.” – Jay-Z, via bvnewswire.com

Lil’ Mama says she got up onstage because she was so moved by hearing Jay-Z big-up New York repeatedly, and it was straight hometown pride that caused her to leap from her seat. As if “Lil’ Mama” and “New York” are synonymous. Hey, Lil’ Mama, you know who else is from New York? Thousands of Jews. But you didn’t see them rushing the stage. They sat quietly in their seats, applauding their clients.
