And Beyoncé Shuts Down the VMAs…



Beyonce at VMAs - BN Music - August 2014 - BellaNaija,com 03
She came, she sang, she danced and she conquered, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter proved to the world once again why she is a phenomenon.

Nominated for eight awards and being honoured with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, no one needed to tell us it was a big night for Queen Bey.

And of course, she didn’t disappoint.

Rocking a bejeweled Tom Ford get-up, the mum of Blue Ivy Carter and Mrs Jay Z performed her entire album under 20 minutes. She kicked off with “Mine“.

By the time, she was done, everyone was left spellbound

Jay later presented his wife with the Vanguard award, calling her the “greatest living entertainer” and while she cried, he kissed and hugged her.

“Blue, Blue, I love you, my beloved, I love you,” she told Jay and Blue while accepting the lifetime achievement award.

Red Carpet
From the moment, she arrived on the red carpet, all we could hear is “She woke up like this, flawless”. She rocked a figure hugging black dress that accentuated all the right things.

    OMG the VMA’s this year was a Beyoncé concert, who else could top up JT’s performance last year, Beyoncé is unarguable the best performer in music, plus blue ivy was too cute, Aunty Kelly sitting on the side glowing and waiting to pop another beautiful baby. Only the Carter’s can own the VMA’s like this

    TRUE!!!!! She’s the greatest living entertainer! you can take that to the bank. This year’s VMAs is also known as the BeyMAs. No one holds the audience like Beyonce and she deserves every accolade, ovation, recognition, tribute, encomium, honor, award and title that comes her way. The girl can ENTERTAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Blue Ivy is cute as a button, just so so adorable…. lol, Bey has a lil entertainer in there.
    They definitely aren’t perfect but they look happy, and i’m sure career wise, they are fulfilled.

    It all looks staged. very obvious they are not happy.

    • Lindsey

      August 25, 2014 at 3:50 pm

      Thank you jare. Ish was rehearsed. The same Bey hiding her baby’s face decides to bring her on stage? This is what their counselor told then to do to divert the attention from the divorce rumors. Good lord. This chic is so calculating it is rather nauseating . And you behives can go have a picnic on the interstate . To think one idiot just called her a messiah hahaha. . I mean you don’t see other celebs brining their toddlers to the VMAs. She has mastered the art if making everything about her. 3 or 4 VMAs she rubbed her belly after her performance to announce she is preggers. But she is a huge BET awards snob and hasn’t attended the last 3 shows . I agree she is an outstanding performer but she is a major snob and attention whore who would stop at nothing to prove she is perfect.

      Thank you! I thought I was the only one who noticed these things. Her album sales were down that year. As in completely down (it was the run the world album). She needed the attention and rubbed her belly there. Typically, she would have ‘hidden’ the pregnant till she birthed. She is a master schemer. The hypocrisy of her brand is amazing. Come here shaking your ass, then quickly put on the ‘good girl’ image. Notice how that leotard is getting smaller. It used to cover her entire bum before. Soon, it will be thong like for her performance,

    Blue moved her head back when Beyoncé tried to kiss her, and jay told her to say mommy

    • slice

      August 25, 2014 at 2:23 pm

      lol if you follow that one, you’ll never think any kid loves their parent. kids do that move head back all the time. some even wipe their cheeks\ after a kiss. or what about when you take them to an aunty’s house and they refuse to follow you home again. all those things don’t define their love for you

    Just wondering why Jayz advised Riri to be dressing well if Beyonce can still go naked. Shit happens…

  33. Truthbetold

    August 25, 2014 at 11:29 am

    Jeez, she’s a toddler, for Gods sake. She probably moved her head backwards a little by reflex, cos she didn’t know her mum was going in for a kiss. And what if Jay said tell Mummy she did a good job. What is wrong with that. People will find something to complain about.

    People here who are criticizing are clearly angry people. The girl has mad money to buy clothes for Blue but chose to dress her in “xmas dress” bescause she is a normal person. Blue will wear dress tire when it is time. It is sad that mature people are checking out Blue’s cloth and as for Beyonce looking fake, u guys need to chill. How do you know she isn’t happy? Did she tell you about it the last time she hung out? And also Jay Z doesnt need to tell Beyonce or Riri what to wear. They are authorities in their fields and can make decisions about their looks without their husband or manager interfering. Gosh… she should have worn iro and buba…hypocrites!

    if you think this was good, i got to see his chic perform upfront, best concert hands down. As in better than the Sade Concert which was my previously ranked number 1. I didn’t seat down once and japa japa started catching my feet. lost my voice the next day. she’s a fantastic performer.

    August 25, 2014 at 4:38 pm

    You guys know that Jay not sharing the stage with Bey during performance, holding Blue in the crowd and going on stage to present the award with Blue and Solange sitting far away where the cameras couldn’t find her is all rumor /damage control right? This is a rehearsed effort to restore their image and appear as one happy family.

    Beyonce can be described as “a child who has washed her hands well will dine with the elders”. This girl has turned a nice voice into a powerhouse performer, she no de tire. I stumbled onto a free concert after leaving work a few years ago and boy,I had to doff my hat to her, from her all female rock star band, to her performance that night, it was AWESOME.

    The girl works hard, appears to have her head screwed on tight and has a monster machine behind her, so why won’t she succeed?

  51. Khaleesi

    August 25, 2014 at 11:41 pm

    I think they are having marital problems, for sure. that’s why she’s so emotional. i do also think that they’re trying to work through them though

  52. Mama mia

    August 25, 2014 at 11:57 pm

    Hmmmm, so strategic that the pregnant one sits beside Jayz, atleast there wouldn’t be any elevator kicking. While Beyonce is undeniably talented she still is not the best entertainer of our time. Sorry! Micheal Jackson was and still is. He gave us something magical. that no one else can or has done till date. That being said, Beyonce has done well with recycling already done stuff for our time (Research). After all, “our time” is being soiled by mediocrity that’s why we accept anything these days. Now, here’s what I give beyonce: hard working she is, beautiful without a doubt, quite private in an admirable way, I also think she is a loner and admire the fact that she is family oriented and very picky when it comes to her friendships which i doubt she has any besides Kelly or maybe Michelle. However, I think “King” bey as you call her is a wee bit on the fake side while watching the show, I kept wondering what blu was doing there It was so sexual for a child yet she shields the little girl’s face in her photos in the name of ”protection/privacy” but chose to show her to the world today. very weird… But then again, none is perfect so can hate her hustle…

    @Iyaga love what you said ” They definitely aren’t perfect but they look happy, and i’m sure career wise, they are fulfilled.
    I am not a die hard fan of Bey but I respect people that know their onions and this lady is a one of those. She is a hard-worker, and nobody can take that away from her. When it comes to performance, I duff my hat Bey!
    Little Blue is just a lovely cutie girl!

    Queen Bey is just the best. when she sings, you just have to listen. when she entertains, you’ve gat no choice than to watch. I hail you!
