It’s Beyoncé’s world, and we’re all just living in it. If you don’t believe me, just watch the performance Bey gave tonight at the MTV Video Music Awards—first, because she literally said, "MTV, welcome to my world", and second because she performed her entire album. Flawlessly.
Following up on her overnight album release earlier this year, the 32-year-old busted out a medley that rolled all 14 tracks on the visual album, from "Mine" all the way to "XO", into one epic performance, including the remixed version of "Flawless" featuring the reference to that elevator incident. She wore a killer multicolor leotard (full details on that to come, no doubt!*), stood in front of a giant screen with the word "FEMINISM" spelled out in all caps and unquestionably stole the show.
*Update: the bodysuit is a custom look by Tom Ford.
Perhaps the best part, however, was when Jay Z and baby Blue Ivy came on stage to present her with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. Blue said "Yay, Mommy!" and, as far as we could tell from Twitter, the Internet collectively died. Teary eyes. Melted hearts. Bey can’t lose.
Oh, and before you go, please enjoy this gif of Blue Ivy doing the "Single Ladies" dance:
