Prank-loving reporter arrested for interrupting Adele's Grammy win


The man who received a slap from Will Smith after attempting to kiss him at the Russian premiere of "Men in Black 3" was arrested on Sunday for crashing Adele's Grammy Award-winning moment.

Vitalii Sediuk has been identified as the prankster who stepped up to the microphone as Adele was making her way to the stage to claim her Best Pop Solo Performance from Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull. The Ukrainian reporter and publicity grabber managed to mumble a congratulations to the singer before Lopez brushed him aside and watched as he walked off the stage behind her.

Sediuk reportedly made his way past security at the Staples Center event in Los Angeles and took up a seat in the second row, which had been allocated to a tardy Adam Levine. He then jumped onstage when Adele won. He was detained by security shortly after his prank and arrested, reports The Hollywood Reporter. He is due in court on trespassing charges next month.

marchonw - Oh the contempt you must have for me!  I typed "they" instead of "there" and forgot the forward slash between "answering commenting", everyday in this case is not one word, colons instead of semi-colons now - Oh my!

marchonw, Thanks for the critique - I was answering commenting on a post.  I was not completing an essay exam for college.  But I am glad that you have all the time you have to critique a person whom you have never met.  You need to get busy.  They are 10 billion+ posts on the web everyday.  I know with your brilliance that you can certainly keep up!

How negative everyone is these days.  Lets see your pic Perris.  Do you really have the right to judge?

Just goes to show how much of a joke the Grammys really are. I haven't watched in years and could really care less because this is just another "Popularity Contest", not necessarily giving to those that are deserving of the awards. And... from what I hear and have been reading, I am not alone.

Why don't they deport that "S O N" back to the Ukraine? Or did he come to the U.S. with his own "rights" too? The new-normal?....
