Alicia Keys says she forgives Lil Mama for gate-crashing VMAs performance...

Alicia Keys says she has forgiven Lil Mama for gate-crashing her performance of 
Empire State of Mind with Jay-Z at the 2009 VMAs. 
It became one of the most memorable moments in Hip Hop history. 
Unfortunately, the aftermath of storming the stage backfired on Lil Mama who became the butt of jokes and memes following the viral moment. Her career suffered still to this day, revealing she attempted to reach out to both of them to apologize but neither of them responded. Jay-Z, who is strict on security, was understandably furious. After all, she could have been a deranged terrorist ready to chop his balls off. Little did he know Solange would have been his biggest threat five years later.

Who cares about that? Does Mashonda forgive Alicia? Got her kids calling her mama and shhh... She need to be focused on that

Darling, they go on vacations together as if they're besties.

I'd find the vacationing with my ex and their new partner (who essentially took him/her away in the first place) uncomfortable, especially if they were making out in front of me without a care to the world. It wouldn't be so bad if I was with them with my new boo too, but not on my own. I remember an interview where they were all squashed on the couch together, Alicia slap bang inbetween them literally and figuratively - but whatever works for them.

I like Lil' Mama a lot. I've heard her speak about this incident and it helped me understand her mindset at the time a bit better. She's really talented, too - a shame she never reached higher heights in her career. Check out "Shoe Game" song and video, funnily enough it has a very Swizz Beatz sound to it.

She definitely deserved better.

And those vacation pictures are some of the most awkward pictures I have ever seen. When Swizz and Alicia first got together, Mashonda was dragging her name through the mud calling her a homewrecker. And now they're BFFs. It's weird. I guess their "blended family" is for the kids. You can still be civilised for the kids without doing all that though.

I think that vacationing nonsense is for show....remember that song or whatever it is that Alicia was trying to promote sometime ago? Mashonda, girl, get your coins out them for your pain and suffering...even if it comes in the form of free vacations...lol
