"Maybe it's fake?" you make be thinking.

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.

She, for some reason, let the bird fly away into the auditorium.

This seems like some sort of hazard.

This seems like some sort of hazard.

And then she's just like "I don't know what happened to my bird."

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.

Phew! Lil Mama is not, after all, a monster. But I still have questions...

...mainly, why??? And was this bird chirping throughout the show? Someone on the inside please let me know.
