Beyonce won the Video Vanguard Award at tonight’s MTV Video Music Awards, but before she accepted her trophy, the Queen of Everything performed a 15 minute medly for the enraptured crowd. At one point, the world FEMINIST flashed behind her in big block letters — expect to see that moment immortalized as every 20-40something feminist’s Facebook cover photo for the next week. In the audience? Husband Jay Z, from whom she is rumored to be on the verge of splitting, and daughter Blue Ivy, who is so cute that there were a record number of reported exploding ovaries during the show. Jay and Blue also presented Bey with her award (see it after the jump), willfully toying with viewers’ emotions, specifically my emotions, because OMG THEY CANNNNNNNOT BREAK UP. What does it mean, you guys? If they’re about to split, why bother with the song and dance? Their tour is already sold out. Does this mean they aren’t breaking up and the rumors have all been BS and this kiss is a sign that true love lives on? Please help me process.
OHMIGOD first, you guys, this Vine of Blue Ivy during Beyonce’s performance and JAY’S FACE is too much:
