Here's Lil Mama, rapper of "Lip Gloss" fame, standing arriving at tonight's VMAs. Rich Fury / Getty Images Everything looks fine and normal, right? EXCEPT THAT THE WOMAN IS HOLDING A BIRD! Frazer Harrison / Getty Images "Maybe it's fake?" you make be thinking. Christopher Polk / Getty Images That's what I thought too, until I dug deeper. But nope, it's real, as you can see from this image of the bird in flight. Alberto E. Rodriguez / Getty Images She, for some reason, let the bird fly away into the auditorium. Alberto E. Rodriguez / Getty Images This seems like some sort of hazard. And then she's just like "I don't know what happened to my bird." Phillip Faraone / Getty Images So if anyone sees a small yellow bird flying around Los Angeles please return it to Lil Mama ASAP. UPDATE: apparently they put the bird back in the cage. Aug. 28, 2017, at 15:00 PM Phew! Lil Mama is not, after all, a monster. But I still have questions... Christopher Polk / Getty Images ...mainly, why??? And was this bird chirping throughout the show? Someone on the inside please let me know.
