Man Who Crashed Adele's Grammys Acceptance Speech Begs Her to Save Him From Going to Jail

Vitalii Sediuk, the Ukrainian journalist, who crashed the Grammy Awards show then jumped on stage and mumbled some words into the microphone as Adele accepted her award, says he's sorry. But not really. The 24-year-old -- who tried to kiss Will Smith on the lips -- spent several hours in police custody before being released with a trespassing citation and a March 4 court date, says he realizes now that he may be banned from covering award shows, but he doesn't want to go to jail. "Oh Adele. Help me not to go to jail," he pleaded. Vitalii is quite proud of himself, telling media outlets how he crashed the biggest awards show in world. He said he arrived at the show in a car that had access to the red carpet, and he did a few interviews before attempting to follow Nicole Kidman into the show. She stopped to talk to reporters and he then followed in Katy Perry -- all without a guard ever stopping him to ask for a ticket. Once inside, he got a seat near the stage, apparently taking Adam Levine's seat. "I didn't really think about the fact that I didn't have the ticket," he said. Before going onstage, he said he had been daydreaming about receiving an Academy Award. He also said he wanted to be able to send in an interesting report. He said he hopes the incident exposes some security flaws. "It's their fault as well," he said. Shifting blame.

Here he is talking to the Hollywood Reporter.
