Being brought up on stage during a concert is a fan’s dream. Singing alongside your favorite artist never f*cking happens unless you’re some halfwit in a movie, so when these things do happen in reality, you usually make sure to not f*ck it up. In the case of Jonathan Neman, the complete opposite happened.
While performing at the Sweetlife Festival in Maryland, Kendrick Lamar decided to bring a fan onstage during his performance of “m.A.A.d. city.” Instead of picking out a legit superfan, the rapper focused in on the biggest d-bag he could find in the crowd: CEO and co-founder of Sweetgreen – the salad chain that sponsored the event – Jonathan Neman.
Obviously Jonathan Newman didn’t know any of the lyrics. Lamar was less than thrilled. He kicked him off stage and brought up a chick who knew her sh*t. Newman, next time you sponsor something maybe at least pretend that you know what you’re talking about.
