    • Nope, not here for it August 25, 2014

      Yawnce’s performance was a YAWN. Michael Jacskon would be ashamed she got that award. She uses HEAVY backing tracks and LOTS of reverb to make her voice sound better than it is. She lip synched too, and didn’t even dance that much. So, Sam, what was her excuse for lip synching.
      best living performer.. how sad for this generation

      • Juju August 25, 2014

        YOU STINK!

      • TdotO August 25, 2014

        Why hate – appreciate & enjoy the entertainment…… jealousy is *itch sometimes. Beyonce’s performance was absolutely AMAZING!!!!

      • Ruchika January 25, 2018

        Really! !!sorry if Beyonce makes you yawn then you are probably deaf please consult your doctor feeling sorry for you take care

  2. ~The Arcade~ August 25, 2014

    Now… that’s love when Ms Anita Baker hops on twitter to express her gratitude for talent. *Now playing “Angel”- Anita Baker*

  3. RICHIE_RICH August 25, 2014

    Let the haters HATE. Beyonce did the damn thing last night. She was by far the best last night . Nicki did her thing last night too.

    I miss classy bow wearing Beyonce.

    bt since this is -ve it wouldn’t make the cut right?

    • TBoz’sSideburns August 25, 2014

      LOL GURL BYE. when did wanda sykes count as an A-Lister, when all she’s known for is reinforcing ABW stereotypes on films and gender-confusion.

  5. gilbert August 25, 2014

    haters be mad and hating cos they were expecting B to do these crazy stunts and do ratchet s*** with pyrotechnics. instead she did the opposite. she celebrated her entire album, her ART, her talent, celebrating MUSIC instead of doing crazy s*** with useless gimmicks on stage. B delivered a stellar performance and u can’t say otherwise. The moment she stepped on that stage, she changed the ENTIRE atmosphere at the arena and she made everyone there look like s***. She knows she’s the baddest and her doing her thing last night makes me a proud member of the Hive. Very well deserved. Long live Queen B. She will continue to pave her way to becoming a legend and a force of icon in the music world.

    • BAMMMM August 25, 2014

      EXACTLY!!!, everyone expected something different..but she did something DIFFERENT ..something that no other celebrity has done…she toke a RISK & NAILED IT!!

    • RihHive August 25, 2014

      ok bt she did the ratchet stunts n pyrotechnics on her concert stage… what now?

      And what about the one piece disco ball she was wearing? Twerking and booty popping all over the stage with Blue front n center to see.

      ART? b true to yourself.. she is an entertainer; not an artist.. and yes I was thoroughly entertained… bt don’t mistake that performance for art.

      • gilbert August 25, 2014

        i respect your opinion, i really do 🙂 but who r u to judge what is and what is not art? you are not beyonce. SHE is the artist. her whole performance was art. from the visuals to the choreography. her songs are also a form of art. so how can u say there wasn’t anything “artsy” about her performance? unless you’re an artist like herself or even greater, then i can understand where you’re coming from! xo

      • TdotO August 25, 2014

        And I guess that you are a Rih Rih fan….. Like I said before Haters will always hate. Talented people are all over the world. maybe you should find yourself a talent, perfect it and then maybe you can comment on Beyonce and her performance. Haters will never prosper. Don’t HATE….Appreciate 😉

    • Royalkev August 25, 2014

      I totally agree with you Gilbert! Bey’s artistic expression of this album was … “flawless”. I’m not disrespecting anyone for not sharing my opinion, but I honestly can’t see where some of the negativity is coming from. I personally don’t even take it to heart. Far as I’m concerned the set-list, energy, visuals and emotion was mind blowing! I loved the simplicity, but at the same time I didn’t totally find it to be. It was all well thought out. The mood set was perfect for each song.

  6. Royalkev August 25, 2014

    It’s nice to see Bey’s talent so appreciated! The woman totally slayed! You always see all the hard work she puts into giving an amazing show. For me she’s topped herself, last night’s performance is now my personal favorite.

  7. BAMMMM August 25, 2014

    I STAN FOR BEYONCE, BUT WHAT IM BOUT TO SAY DONT HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THAT…

    HER PERFORMANCE WAS SO DAMN GOOD LASTNIGHT, IF YOU DONT RESPECT HER AS A PERSON, THERE IS NO WAY IN HELL YOU CANT RESPECT HER AS AN ARTIST.

    SHE DID IT SO DIFFERENT LAST NIGHT, EVERYONE EXPECTED HER TO DO
    SINGLE LADIES, RTW, EOT ETC…BUT SHE PROVED THAT YOU CAN CHANGE IT UP & STILL
    SHUT THAT BTCH DOWN!’

    I MUST KEEP IT 100 THO, I DIDN’T KNO HOW TO FEEL
    ABOUT HER DOING HER SELF TITLE ALBUM, BUT WHEN SHE OPENED WITH MINE & WENT ON FROM THERE , I WAS AMAZED.

    & THATS WHY I AND WE AS HER FANS LOVE HER SO MUCH, SHE IS SO HUMBLE AND DESERVED THAT AWARD..SHE ISN’T MICHAEL JACKSON…BUT SHE IS THE MJ OF OUR GENERATION..
    I
    HER MOMENT WITH JAY Z & BABY BLU WAS JUST THE MOMENT OF ALL MOMENTS LAST NIGHT, DID U HEAR THE CHANTING OF HER NAME??, THE EMOTIONS ON HER FACE,
    THE TEARS & HAPPINESS OF THE OTHER CELEBRITIES??..THATS BECAUSE SHE WORKS HER ASS OFF TO GET WERE SHE IS TODAY.

    IM SO HAPPY & PROUD THAT SHE CHANGED IT UP LAST NIGHT..
    LAST NIGHT WAS THE FIRST TIME I ACTUALLY SET DOWN AN LISTENED TO HAUNTED, MINE & ROCKET AND BLUE..BECAUSE I FELT LIKE THEY WERE BORING SONGS BUT SHE CHANGED ALL THAT LAST NIGHT.

    P.S…IM SO READY FOR THE GRAMMYS 2015, AFTER THAT WE ALL KNO SHE’S GONNA TAKE A BREAK LIKE SHE ALWAYS DOES..BUT IT WILL BE WELL DESERVED

  8. Automatic August 25, 2014

    When will MOOriah DIVORCrey?

    • caleb August 25, 2014

      @automatic come on man, im a bey stan too, but that was uncalled for, a persons divorce is nothing to make fun of just saying …. lets keep it cute yall dont need to bash anyone … love to all!!

      • Dossome August 25, 2014

        It’s probably mark111..He’s the only one who gets satisfaction from such things

      • FAF August 25, 2014

        but they say Beyonce getting divorced too lmao just cuz they stay separated for financial reasons instead of divorcing don’t mean they aren’t on the rocks..

  9. Dossome August 25, 2014

    Are Katy and JHud sincere or just the typical bandwagoning? 😉 …Congrats Bey,i think it’s well deserved.

    • Royalkev August 25, 2014

      I thought the exact same thing when I scrolled down and saw JHud’s comment.

      • Dossome August 25, 2014

        The reply section is pretty f***** up while on mobile…check my reply below

    • mekaela August 25, 2014

  11. Mingxx August 25, 2014

    The costumes and other things was a copy from a german artist tgj wont allow the video to post beyonce is a pure thief. Copycat

    • DIGGER BEY August 25, 2014

      Kii Kiii Bitter biitches. Anyway, BEYONCE is a PURE ICONIC STAGE SLAYYYYYYER!

    • B. Hill August 25, 2014

      LOL! You’re so full of sh*t. There is no video to post, because you’re making that up. You mad that Bey slayed the stage as she ALWAYS does? Mad at all that talent? Mad at all the industry praise she’s habitually showered with? LOL@you again. Seethe! 😆

    • Hush August 25, 2014

      ::: Clare Huxtable voice :::

      You are a liar!

  12. mrtruth August 25, 2014

    I don’t get the hype? It was the same thing she’s been doing the past year. She needs to bring something new and fresh to the table.

    • AmbeRussell August 25, 2014

      I would agree IF she was on every tv show, award show etc doing these same performances, but for the majority of ppl, this was something new. She brought her concert to the vmas, big deal it isn’t like we ALL seen this same performance dozens of times

    • edwin August 25, 2014

      Ohhhhh bishessss be biter as f*** ag go back to watever rocks u crolled frm talkn abokn u aint see any new ish bey did on her vma performance psss mxm crooked eyed eyed dogs nxa s*** ass take a back sit with all dat h8

  13. DIGGER BEY August 25, 2014

    I posted some of those celebrity reactions last nite. The ones that resonates with me is Will I Am’s, Busta’s and Lebron’s. THE QUEEN is without a shadow of doubt, The Greatest of this generation but one of the best ever!!! That Voice improves with Time. She didn’t do much dancing but when she did, it was more SLAYAGE than any performer put on that nite. Pressed Biitches shall remain down in the Pitts, while PRAISES for THE QUEEN become stronger!

  14. Janet August 25, 2014

    Thess are all ass licking flops. so it dont matter.

    • DIGGER BEY August 25, 2014

      I guess you didn’t see Pink in the mix??? #HATING HOEES KII

      • Janet August 25, 2014

        Is your mum thats a hating h**. check that.

      • DIGGER BEY August 25, 2014

        Hot breath biitch, my mom isn’t on TGJ Seeeeeeeeeeeething and Pressed as hell kii kii. Its you lmao

      • bey lip sync August 25, 2014

        you comment on every post that shows how idle and pressed you are. go kill yourself.

      • DIGGER BEY August 25, 2014

        Kii Kii How am I pressed, when all my fav do is WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN AND WIN! I got these BIG ASS SMILE on my face because u biitches can’t take it lmfaoooooooooo

    • fredirmrz August 26, 2014

      It was something different? Most of the songs which are Mine, Rocket, Angel, Jealous, and Blue she has NEVER performed live since her album came out. For the Mrs. Carter world tour and OTR tour she had a COMPLETELY different setlist. So please sit the f*** down, and let Queen Bey have her moment.

  15. DIGGER BEY August 25, 2014

    Kii Not only did she OWN last night but she also became the second most awarded artist in VMA history, only behind Madonna. #GET IT LINE BIITCHES

  16. Zzz August 25, 2014

    It was so boring. Her album isn’t good enough to be performed that way. And of course she had to act and dress slutty. This ass kissing is weird.

    • DIGGER BEY August 25, 2014

      Biitch Zzzzz your ass back under that rock.

    • Haters slit your throat September 1, 2014

      Since when is a bejeweled bodysuit with pantyhose under it slutty? Green doesn’t look good on you.

  17. bey lip sync August 25, 2014

    She should go on rupaul, she will slay.

  18. Slayretha Franklin August 25, 2014

    I’M THE QUEEN.

    • Stephy. August 25, 2014

      Yes You Are Miss Franklin! LMAO!

  19. Stephy. August 25, 2014

    I keep telling yall she is the most respected artist in the music industry right now. No one gets more praise & respect from their own peers than Beyonce. She killed it last night & Blue Ivy SLAYED me with her cute-ness.

    https://pbs.twimg.com/tweet_video/Bv43LUuCUAAtnUG.mp4

    • Britney Stan August 25, 2014

      She’s definitely more RESPECTED than the fat flop in your avi.

      • Guest August 25, 2014

        But Britney…

      • Stephy. August 25, 2014

        Your just mad cause S****** Spears DIED. BYE

  20. Suicide Blonde August 25, 2014

    Her performance wasn’t bad but so boring to me, it was like i was expecting her to move but she didn’t, the best thing was the end, Jay and the baby and even her tears seems forced, of course everything she does is overrated and this performance is not the exception, all the performances were horrible so i can see why her set is seen as the best, she looked perfect tho.

    • Stephy. August 25, 2014

      Let go of 1995. Those artist & days DIED with Michael Jackson…

      • Suicide Blonde August 25, 2014

        What are u talking about?

      • Stephy. August 25, 2014

        All you do is hate & put down like 95% of artist performances these days. I never see you praise the new generation. I just kinda think you are comparing everything to past artist. That they are not gonna EVER compare too..

      • Suicide Blonde August 25, 2014

        Well, you got me wrong, in fact i have always say that she’s a great performer, in fact my only problem always have been the greatest performer of all time/MJ second coming, i’m ok with best of her generation, i don’t have to compare her or any other star of our time with those of the past, you’re really wrong.

      • Stephy. August 25, 2014

        Whatever. Your full of crap. smh disappointed.

      • Suicide Blonde August 25, 2014

        Just respect my opinion, stop quit bitching.

      • Stephy. August 25, 2014

        Make me stop bitxhing… Paul.

      • Suicide Blonde August 25, 2014

        Buy i d****.

      • Stephy. August 25, 2014

        Todavía me gusta usted…

      • Suicide Blonde August 25, 2014

        Of course you do!….I’m adorable 🙂

    • Dossome August 25, 2014

      Seriously???I’m not even a fan of Bey like that but the way you act is really weird…Had this been JLo,you would’ve been speaking a different tune

      • Suicide Blonde August 25, 2014

        It was a boring performance to me, if this was J.Lo, i would have say the same thing, not bad but boring.

      • Stephy. August 25, 2014

        Mostly, ALL J HO’s performances are boring but you praise her to the max. You just don’t like Beyonce. Ain’t nothing wrong with saying “I just don’t like her”…

      • Suicide Blonde August 25, 2014

        You lambs wants to make this about someone else who all of you dislike, i’m not gonna give you the pleasure, if i don’t like someone, i don’t hide it, i think Beyoncé is overrated, but that’s it.

      • Dossome August 25, 2014

        Oh come on…cut the “you lambs” s*** and just argue your point like any grown up would.You have the tendency to downplay and issue half-assed compliments to Bey and Janet..i don’t have to be a “lamb” to see it

      • Suicide Blonde August 25, 2014

        When did i say that Janet wasn’t/isn’t a good artist/performer, never, she’s underrated, it’s that a lie, is this how i’m degrading her, Beyonce is s great performer as well but man the woman is sooo overrated, i don’t see nothing wrong with saying the truth, or maybe you think i do because she’s a black woman, well, good morning!…There are plenty of white female artists who are overrated but none of them as much as Beyonce.

    • CherylSoldierr August 25, 2014

      Oh no, but you stan for Madonna, the most overrated thing of all time. With her stiff, robotic old lady dance moves. Death!

  21. Kimbella August 25, 2014

    Jhud is so fake…

  22. Britney Stan August 25, 2014

    Her performance was boring i was more entertained watching Iggy & Nicki performances.

  30. Dossome August 25, 2014

    @Blondie
    Oh no,lol…Now you’re getting defensive,pretty much expected.I’m not the kind to dig up archived posts of Janet and Bey just so i could “clock” you by your own words because i hardly have the time.I DON’T make up stuff,you like to post stuff that would provoke a response then get all innocent and defensive when that happens.This has nothing to do with race because i singled out just Janet and Bey

  31. Theman August 25, 2014

    It was good, but it’s what she always does. What was new about it? MTV said that it would be seething new.. Nicki was very entertaining, and so was IGGY !!!! Usher did his damn thing too.
    Jessie J is very talented !!!!

  32. Theman August 25, 2014

    Seeing*

  33. Beysus August 25, 2014

    I cried at the speech!!! Ugh the slayage is unreal…

  34. B**** I Can’t Even Spell Welfare August 25, 2014

    I LOVED Beyoncé’s performance. Well balanced and highly entertaining.

    Jessie J gave us VOCALS & much respect to her.

    • B**** I Can’t Even Spell Welfare August 25, 2014

      LOVED Nicki too!

  35. Me I am mariah August 25, 2014

    She acted like a total s*** in front of her camel and daughter

    • Rihanna is a ho August 25, 2014

      Are you mad because Mariah’s son is divorcing her crazy ass? She will never have the respect that bey has. 🙁 sorry!

  36. StingRae August 25, 2014

    Giving credit where credit is due. I’m not a fan but that was good performance. She knows how to captiate her audience. I think that she got the award because for the past year, line up with the categories listed for the MTV awards, there’s no one else in the same category as her. Regardless, she got the award. Job well done.

  37. ENOUGH ONIKA August 25, 2014

    I have a seriously question and no shade but when will Rihanna?? The navy brags about how many radio #1’s she has but she has yet to perform (or show up) a collection of those hits like Beyonce did last night or Justin Timberlake did not too long ago. When will she “wow” people with her performance on a stage?? She’s a clear example of a hit catalog can never mask talent (or lack their of) in performing on stage or singing live…..

    • rita ora can win a oscar August 25, 2014

      Onika,

      I agree with you, this is why I had to stop being a fan of Rihanan. I was at the monster tour cos i bough the tickets a long go and SHE WAS SO WACK it was tragic. The reason why you all THESE NAVY stans on every blog, even whether fashion or pop, screaming down beyonce or anyone who is a threat.

      I know u hate Rita Ora, but she does a talent to fall back on. Navy are scared, that is where their insecurities come from; they know Rihanna will not last after 30 or when radio stop laying her. Look at her crappy album sales. Even DIL murdered GGGB and GGGB ws pop.

      Sade still out earns and ousels and out tours women half her age, Why? Cos of her talent. Beyonce is Sade. Rihanan is over and they know it and feel scared.

  38. Nicki August 25, 2014

    Why couldn’t she do JT type of performance? I expected her to be as good as him but she had to perform the whole album. I was waiting for slayage but instead I got bored.

  39. DIGGER BEY August 25, 2014

    The same way people get bored when u start running that shiity mouth of yours.

    • DIGGER BEY August 25, 2014

    2.3 million viewers tuned in to see Beyonce to do her 15 minute strip tease.

  41. dd August 25, 2014

    Hold on when jhud family was murdered no Bernice words of encouragement, Bernice straight ignored it thought it would break her. So remember Ehud still giving credit where credit is due

    • dd August 25, 2014

      Beyonce and jhud

    Definitely believe that that you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be at the web the easiest thing to take into account of.
    I say to you, I definitely get irked at the same time as people
    consider issues that they plainly don’t know about.
    You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest and also outlined out the entire thing with no need
    side effect , other people could take a signal. Will
    probably be back to get more. Thanks

    You’ve dealt a great deal with top secret information. The Rothschilds are
