Last night, the generally deeply predictable People’s Choice Award hosted maybe the sleepiest, most low-impact Ol’ Dirty Bastard/Kanye West awards-show moment of all time. This one happened to involve Kanye, too, albeit indirectly. As the panel from The Talk were accepting their award for Favorite Daytime TV Hosting Team — that’s an award, seriously — a very odd young man approached the stage took the mic, and introduced himself. In his few minutes onstage, he also shouted out the Baton Rouge cult-rapper Kevin Gates and quoted Kanye West’s “New God Flow” by way of complimenting Kanye’s sneaker line. Sure!
In the couple of seconds of chaos that followed, Sharon Osborne kicked the interrupter a few times, and Sheryl Underwood informed him that he “ain’t gon’ pull no Steve Harvey up in here.” Not long after, the hosts on the L.A. radio station Power 106 interviewed Zac Zeta, the 20-year-old stage crasher, and he clarified that he made his statement “to inspire people, to inspire the world.” Makes perfect sense! Below, watch the interruption and listen to Zeta’s interview.

Gotta say: The ladies from The Talk handled that pretty well!
