Grammy gatecrasher hopes to stay

Adele's appearance at the Grammy Awards was hit by a gatecrasher

A Ukrainian TV journalist arrested after attempting to upstage Adele at the Grammys says his stunt was spontaneous and hopes it does not hurt his chances to remain in Los Angeles.

Vitalii Sediuk, 24, says he accepts responsibility for entering the show without a ticket, but hopes the incident has exposed some security lapses.

He was arrested on Sunday after briefly taking the microphone before Adele accepted her Grammy on the show's telecast. He was shooed away by presenter Jennifer Lopez and later released by police.

He says he had to get creative to report from the show because he did not have media credentials.

Sediuk gained notoriety for being slapped by Will Smith after trying to kiss the actor on a red carpet last year.
