Did you miss last night’s MTV Video Music Awards? You’re not alone. I generally purposely try to miss the broadcast, but for whatever reason, I actually tuned in this year – via torrent, of course, which means I got to skip over the seemingly endless ad breaks. Here are the 10 moments that people are talking about/will make you seem totally “on it” around the water cooler at work.
Beyoncé. Everything Beyoncé.
Beyoncé was given the Video Vanguard Award after giving an incredible performance of a medley of pretty much every single song on the self-titled album. I know I get a bit Beyoncé-d out sometimes, but you can’t deny she’s an incredibly accomplished performer and that award was extremely well-deserved. Jay-Z bringing little Blue Ivy up on stage to hand her the statue at the end was the extra cherry on top. SO CUTE.
Miley Cyrus got a homeless man to accept her award.
Miley Cyrus won Video of the Year, but instead of accepting the award herself, she sent a homeless man from the area on stage to represent the homeless community in Los Angeles and bring awareness to the cause. Miley was in tears the whole time he was speaking, but I can’t tell if this was genuine or some weird hacky PR move. I’m feeling optimistic today, so I’ll go with the former.

Jay-Z and Beyonce are taking their On The Run tour to HBO because I guess they need even MORE money. The special won’t be airing until September, but people are losing their damn minds over this shit, so here’s your first trailer:
I dunno, I feel like I’m suffering Bey-Z exhaustion again, like I was before she dropped the self-titled. I need them to go away for a while, please.

Beyoncé and Jay Z are totally getting divorced for realsies, so claims Us Weekly. Rumors of their impending divorce are nothing new, but the magazine is so dead set on it that they’ve made it their cover, essentially saying Bey’s not exactly “drunk in love” anymore.
Now that the singer has finished the last of her On The Run U.S. tour dates with husband Jay Z, speculation about the couple’s marriage is at an all-time high. Fans are wondering if the spouses of six years will go the distance — but Beyonce is already making moves toward a split, sources reveal in the new issue of Us Weekly.
Insiders tell Us the music superstar, 32, has a plan of action in place for if/when she decides to call it quits with her rapper hubby, 44, dad to her 2-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy. One source says “she is done” after their remaining On The Run shows in Paris, France.
A source previously told Us Weekly that the spouses “stayed separately” while in New York and L.A. for their On The Run tour. And another insider said Beyonce went without her husband to look for apartments in Manhattan, including a $21.5 million penthouse in Chelsea.
You know what? Let them be done already. I’m so sick of hearing about them. I’m pretty much sick of them altogether. If this actually happens, let’s just all pray it’s a swift and clean divorce, and not the media circus it will inevitably be, because I am so tired of hearing about Bey and Jey.
I don’t know if I believe Us or not (like how many freaking times have they declared Jennifer Aniston to be pregnant?) but I don’t think I would be shocked if they did divorce. Maybe that’s only because I don’t care about their lives all that much, and am not hugely invested.
Anyway, if they divorce, I’ll bet they announce it in October. Anyone else want to make a guess?
