People's Choice Awards' Stage Crasher Zacari Nicasio's 5 Best Media Moments
It's been two days since Zacari Nicasio stage crashed the People's Choice Awards on Wednesday during the hosts of The Talk's acceptance speech for Favorite Daytime Hosting Team and he's making the most of the attention.
So far, the 20-year-old aspiring rapper has already done interviews with Noisey, Hip Hop DX, Pigeons and Planes and the Daily News. He even premiered a Kevin Gates-featuring track, "Zeta Gang Castle Remix," on Complex. Will this be Nicasio's launching point or just 15 fleeting minutes?
Time will tell, but here are the best moments of Nicasio's media frenzy:
1. He says he wants Sharon Osborne to apologize and take him on a date to Cheesecake Factory:
"What's her name, Sharon Osbourne? She kicked me in my ass, dude. When she kicked me in my ass, my brain did my a backflip. I guess it was coo. But I'm going to need that apology from her, though. If she can take me on a date to Cheesecake Factory. That's about it," he told HipHopDX.
2. Wait, was he arrested for stage crashing? Or not?
Nicasio's not revealing himself to be a totally credible source on all things, as he told HipHopDX he was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor. But he also told Noisey security just escorted him back to his Uber.
But it doesn't stop there. Somehow each answer he gives on this point continues to be totally different. "Probably. I don't remember," he told the Daily News of his alleged arrest. "Last night was a blur."
And to Pigeons and Planes he clarified, "Nah, I didn’t get arrested or nothing like that. I got a ticket. I have a court date on January 27, but that’s about it. Nothing major.... they just took me outside and gave me a ticket, that’s about it. And then I met up with one of my boys, and I seen the internet and I was like, 'Damn!'"
3. The details on his relationship with Kevin Gates:
Nicasio of course shouted out Gates onstage, as well as Kanye West, because -- as he told Pigeons and Planes -- "they’re really making a change right now, and I don't think a lot of people see it." But he also released that above mentioned track with Gates and called the Louisiana rapper a "guardian angle" who's "like family." But how did they meet? "We met in Hollywood." At an event or something? "I met him in traffic." What, like at a stoplight?
4. This isn't the first big event he's crashed.
Turns out Nicasio crashed Kris Jenner's $2 million Great Gatsby-themed 60th birthday party last November and even got onstage with Kanye West. He's apparently also attended the American Music Awards, the Star Wars: The Force Awakens world premiere and Rihanna's Diamond Ball.
5. He did it for a reason.
"It honestly wasn’t planned out. I honestly think that like I was the only person in the building that night who wanted to stand up for people with dreams. I don’t think there was no wrong or right way to do it. I don’t know. It just happened," he told Noisey.
And in Pigeons and Planes, he elaborated, "Yeah man, if there’s anything you want to do in your life, don’t let anyone hold you back. Don’t listen to what anybody says about you. Everyone’s gonna have their opinions. Live your life. You have a dream? Do what you gotta do. The main thing that sticks in my head is this: after I leave these events, I’m not going back to nothing nice. That’s all I gotta say."
