We celebrated Beyonce’s 33rd birthday yesterday, but today, all of us are getting a special gift. A behind-the-scenes look at Bey’s MTV Video Music Awards medley has hit the web, showing us just how marvelous the singer truly is.
Beyoncé marked her fifth MTV Video Music Awards performance with a medley of songs from her self-titled surprise album. The set included somber reflection, sex appeal, and surfboardts. Though fans were mesmerized, does last night’s performance go down as Bey’s best VMA set yet?
Last Lap is here to give you a rundown of today’s music news. Two of R&B’s biggest stars might hit us with a huge collaboration, Justin Bieber shows some love for the Lord, and J. Cole pens a track in the wake of a controversial shooting.
If there’s one person in the world we love above all others, it’s Beyoncé (sorry, Mom). Since our hearts are squarely in Queen Bey’s camp, we couldn’t help but find others who share our joy -especially if they demonstrate their fandom in inventive and hilarious ways. Many of these folks take to Tumblr, making amazing ‘Younce-themed memes that have us laughing til we cry.
MTV announced that Beyoncé will not only be performing at this year’s Video Music Awards but she will also be honored with the prestigious Michael Jackson Vangaurd Award. Winners in the past include Justin Timberlake, who performed a mind-blowing medley of hits with a resurrected ‘N Sync, Britney Spears, who watched as a bunch of fierce little girls performed the most iconic Britney music video sequences, and of course MJ himself. This year, we are so excited for the all too-deserving Beyoncé to accept her award that we started to predict every single step leading up to Queen Bey’s big moment.
Another day, another rumor that the House of Carter is dangerously close to falling apart. If all this noise about Beyoncé and Jay Z‘s supposed trouble marriage is getting to you, let’s try to focus on the good stuff: amazing musical collaborations, an adorable baby, and flawless Instagram photos. This may not be real life, but it’s a manicured perfection we’d love to imagine ourselves living in. Read more…
Long before Justin Bieber was dodging punches from actors in Ibiza, he was a Canadian kid showcasing his talent through YouTube videos. However, he wasn’t the only youngster using the video site to cover popular songs and display some serious music skills.
Hopefully you’ve never been cheated on, and will never be cheated on. But it happens — so often in fact, that even our favorite stars aren’t immune to falling victim to adulterous ways. Everyone from Beyonce to Rihanna knows what it’s like to feel the sting of a cheater, and all have songs not only to prove it, but to help you out when you find yourself in the same awful position. From Blu Cantrell’s “Hit Em Up Style” to Cee Lo’s “F–k you”, there’s a song to suit every mood as well.
It’s been a rough summer. After a very public family feud, the cracks within the otherwise perfect lives of Beyoncé and Jay Z are beginning to show. Because the gossip won’t stop, we’ve been forced to address these divorce and infidelity rumors head on. Is all well in the Carter kingdom? We hope so.
