Lil Mama was close to the top of the world for a moment in 2007 when her hit "Lip Gloss" was all the rage.
But her debut album flopped and the next thing you know she's stage-crashing JAY-Z and Alicia Keys at the 2009 MTV Music Awards.
Mama remembered that embarrassing moment today as she celebrated Hov's 48th birthday.
She spoke on her notorious stage crash during a 2015 interview with Complex.
"I did it to myself, because I'm the one who went up there. But them [Jay Z and Alicia Keys] not saying anything or even caring about the backlash...it taught me to be stronger and understand this is a business. That no one is here to protect you. It's sad when the people we look up to as mentors don't take the time out to let us know-'I was angry, you did piss me off, but I forgive you.' When you're a young person, you're never forgiven for the things you do. It's America."
Speaking of birthdays, Lil Mama has yet to turn 29. So she still has a chance to grab back that magic she had when she was still a teen.
