Beyonce reigns over VMAs, Spears falls flat

This move comes after the rapper stood by his argument that he called Taylor to warn her before he released the controversial "I made that b**** famous" lyric in his hit song "Famous" during his seven minute VMAs speech on August 28.

Beyonce, was the top nominee with 11, arrived angel-winged and green-feathered with daughter Blue Ivy in tow along with Sybrina Fulton, Lezley McSpadden and Gwen Carr, the mothers of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and Eric Garner, among others. "She's a living, breathing legend in our industry, ladies and gentleman, the recipient of the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award for 2016, Rihanna".

However, right as Drake handed the award to Rihanna, he went in for a kiss on the mouth, but the "Diamonds" singer literally turned the other cheek and curved the smooch (not) seen 'round the world. He said he met Rihanna in 2005 on the set of her first music video for "Pon de Replay".


And she quickly racked up the prizes, earning best choreography, best direction, best cinematography, and best editing for "Formation", which she performed as part of a show-stopping Lemonade medley. All my adult life, I've looked up to her even though she's younger than me. As Kim Kardashian's Snapchats showed us, Yeezy did give the 26-year-old a call before dropping the song, but she's still upset with him because she claims she was never told that he would be calling her a "b****" on the track.

"My success started as my dream, but now my success is not my own. It's my family, my fans, my country.it's women, it's black women", she said.

Britney Spears returned to the VMA stage but faced accusations she lip-synced her performance of Make Me from her new album Glory. She's a mom. And she can sing.


Since then she's become Kanye's protegee and worked alongside the rapper on a number of projects with his GOOD Music label.

In true Kanye fashion, the rapper ranted onstage, touching on subjects from music to his beef with Taylor Swift to violence in his hometown Chicago before he debuted his music video for "Fade," which starred Teyana Taylor. He even pointed to former girlfriend Amber Rose, who was in the audience and is also in the video. "You know, people come up to me like, 'Man, that's right!"

Oh yeah, there was a song happening during that video, not just Taylor happening.
