MTV VMAs: Beyonce To Receive Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award & Perform

Published: Thursday 7th Aug 2014 by Sam

It was only a matter of time.

With the MTV Video Music Awards nigh, the network are gearing up to officially announce Beyonce as the 2014 recipient of the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.

Details below…

According to Yahoo, reps for the show have confirmed that King B will receive the coveted honor at the August 24th ceremony, which takes place live from The Forum in Los Angeles.

Previous honourees include Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, and The Beastie Boys. 

In addition, a performance from the star (which’ll mark her fourth on the show solo) is also being touted as locked-in. The 32-year-old joins previously confirmed performers Usher, Ariana Grande, and 5 Seconds Of Summer. 


Color us officially excited!

If Justin Timberlake’s ten minute slot last year was anything to go by, Bey will be afforded ample time to serve up a blockbuster showing – like only she can.

    Yesss queen u better slay that performance!!!

    • Sam Loves Rihanna August 7, 2014

      This will be the only part worth watching. She deserves it, especially before Justin and Britney.

      • BubblePopElectric August 7, 2014

        I think that if 4 produced a blockbuster single or two, they would’ve given it to her during that album cycle. But because Britney was nailing the Hot 100 that year for the first time in so long, they decided to honor her (I think they also felt it would’ve been her last real race around the track). Same with Justin last year but in regards to how he dominated the Album charts with part 1 of the 20/20 experience. This however, undoubtedly, Has been Beyoncé’s year that’s solidified her legendary status with her landmark self-titled album—her undisputed game-changer.

  3. Robert August 7, 2014

    Glory Hallelujah!!! Praise Jesus!!! The Lord is blessing us with a Beyoncé performance. Not just a performance… A LIVE performance. It’s been so long…

  13. Revolution August 7, 2014

    Yes! Not surprised. I hope she gets album of the year at the next Grammys as well. That will be the cherry on the cake for a show stopping era for Mrs Carter.

  14. Teacher(Sam in my avi) August 7, 2014

    THE DOWNGRADE!!! Michael just down there rolling in his grave! RIP KOP!
    But thinkin about it JT videos are basic af and he received the award so….guess they’re continuing the basicness!

    • DIGGER BEY August 7, 2014

      I bet if Worthlessianna received it, your hog mouth ass wouldn’t know what to do.

  15. SMH August 7, 2014

    10 minutes of c****** popping and cellulite jiggling? No thanks, i’ll pass. It didn’t take Britney this long to get this award lol.

    • HiveHighness August 7, 2014

      Well where’s Britney now? I’ll tell you where somewhere in Vegas overcharging folks to see her lip sync to some tragic vocals… Beyonce has the power of longevity

    • DIGGER BEY August 7, 2014

      Kii Who is Britney???? And you should stop talking about your favs hun.

    • RICHIE_RICH August 7, 2014

      Feed Brit some METH, another trailer park trash C u N t

    • SMH August 7, 2014

      Britney is the REAL Queen B, the chick that this girl has been trying to outsell for the past 15 years-and failed miserably. This chick right here is nothing without her husband pulling all the strings. So you can sit now.

      • DIGGER BEY August 7, 2014

        Ummm….How is KING B been trying to outsell Britney, when she has been doing it since 2003 kiii. Girl go read a book or something kii kii. #DUMB BIITCH

    • Krista August 7, 2014

      LOL cling to Britney cos its not your fave.

      • SMH August 7, 2014

        I don’t have a ‘fave’ dear. I have my own life; I’m not some pathetic stan that has to live through a celebrity because my own life sucks like the beyhive. I’m just stating facts. Britney=33 million albums, beyonce=15 million. and they both came out basically around the same time. So what if Britney isn’t as hot as she used to be; that doesn’t erase what she’s done. I notice the beyhive doesn’t like when people bring up other stars past sales. That’s because beyonce fans don’t like seeing just how much of a LESSOR she is to other stars whose sales she just can’t seem to match. Truth hurts.

      • Krista August 7, 2014

        Riiight. Is that why you messed up on a few posts the other day @LOL. Gaga is your fave. Sit down. No matter what you say, Beyoncé is STILL getting the award amongst other things. They don’t give out awards for no reason. Now deal with it. Its like barking at a brick wall. She still WINS.

      • Krista August 7, 2014

        And also, you can only bring up other stars sales from decades ago to discredit Beyonce’s own achievements. That is weak. Just forget that Beyonce is doing TRIPLE what Britney can do in 2014. She has longevity. Why is that? Britney has outsold many not just Beyoncé. So save the b*******. BEYONCE is still getting the award. Bringing up Britney doesn’t change what she’s getting recognised for.

      • DIGGER BEY August 7, 2014

        Biitch please….you’re pathetic as hell, because if your raggedy ass had your own life, u wouldn’t been in here hating on someone else’s life. And Britney debuted in 1998 dumb biitch. KING B went solo in 2003 but I see u counted their years in the industry. So Britney and THE QUEEN are both around 33 million albums sold kii kii. #STUPID HOEES

  16. gina August 7, 2014

    I guess this would mean something if the VMAs were still relevant.

    • DIGGER BEY August 7, 2014

      Gurrrrl are u hating because MTV doesn’t recognize your favs kii

      • gina August 7, 2014

        don’t blame me because MTV is an irrelevant channel that nobody watches anymore. blame your overrated fave for not being able to do any better than a 2000s throwback channel.

      • DIGGER BEY August 7, 2014

        Lmaooo Girl bye. MTV VMAS ratings have remained fairly good and I guess u forgot KING B brought them their best ratings a couple years ago. People are still interested, its just sometimes they lack talent performing. They instead book people like your favs, nobody don’t wanna see kii

      • gina August 7, 2014

        That’s why The BET Awards kicks their ass in ratings every year, right? #SitFelicia

      • Krista August 7, 2014

        @Gina. The VMAS are clearly relevant. Hence all the pop stars attend.

      • DIGGER BEY August 7, 2014

        Lmfaoooooo Gurl u are too much lmao. If MTV was so irrelevant than why are you should waisting your precious time arguing about it???? #BYE DUMB FELCIA

  17. RICHIE_RICH August 7, 2014

      • Krista August 7, 2014

        But where am I deflecting? Just stating facts. If it was a struggle, she’d be being snubbed like your fave. Give up hun, you’re not convincing anyone. Especially whilst you stan for the biggest flop.

    • wait August 7, 2014

      Do you realize that Annie Lennox already did TWO
      in the 80’s? Not to mention that Beyonce did this
      with BDay, but slapped “visual” album to this.
      SMH, y’all need to wake up!!!

      • XXX August 7, 2014

        B Day was not the same. The anthology was a whole seperate package not part of the album one.

    • Lolz August 7, 2014


      Jealous and pressed alert!

      If its so basic, why would Jay Z ‘pay’ for it. Go away and stop seething because Gaga is IRRELEVANT NO WHERE GHOST. . Where are her noms? She tried to be so epic with that GAY video and failed bahahaha!

  22. ontherun August 7, 2014

Lol The VMA’s is the second most Iconic music award show in history after the Grammy’s & its number 1 in Media coverage but most importantly it makes & Celebrates ICONS. This award show is alway the most talked about & hottest ticket on the planet & for Bey to get her award this is is going to make the History books because that what Beyonce & the VMA’s stay – WINNING! (If your not watch this year girl just by!) lol

    • Rihboy August 7, 2014

      Honey the vmas is not second to the grammys that will be billboard. Shut your lying ass up. When rih was on there for wfl a few years back, yall hive members said vmas was stupid. Now that bey is being awarded, its a top ranking show. Lol sorry to burst your bubble but rih nor bey can save vma ratings sorry. Neither names carry all that super power.

      • Lolz August 7, 2014

        Beyoncé gave the VMAs their most watched show of all times. Just because Rihanna can’t doesn’t mean Bey cant.

      • Rihboy August 7, 2014

        No she didnt lol. Non receipted

      • XXX August 7, 2014

    Yawn. She will bring repetitive realness to the stage at the vmas. Moreover she hasnt reached a calibur of such an award. Must have paid for it. Next.

    • TRUTH SERUM August 7, 2014

      The epitome of what a pressed biitch looks like. More accurate my, a lose booty bottom that couldn’t see talent if it tried.

    • How Many Drinks (Miguels Wifey) August 7, 2014

      Clearly she has reached the calibur. Hence why shes getting it. Stay mad.

    • Beysus August 7, 2014

      What’s all this about a “Monster Tour”??? LOL I’m too busy looking at all the slayage King Bey’s doing!!

      • teee August 7, 2014

        Sorry rih’s maggot filled pussay is irrelevant. Bookmark me but r8 will be her worst era. The b**** has nothing else to show the world

    • ~The Arcade~ August 7, 2014

      @Rihboy… can I ask you whether Justin deserved it last year? were you complaining then? Why not give credit where its due. Beyonce is the LAST OF THE MOHICANS who actually “STILL” cares about her career and still gives a performance, like her life depended on it. Whether you like it or not, these ceremonies still acknowledge her and continue to reward her for her passion.

      Good day sir! 🙂 😛

    • Rihboy August 7, 2014

      Justin didnt deserve it either. Now they are just handing out awards. Bey deserves an award but nothing bey has done is on michaels level. Sorry. My opinion. Why would i be pressed over thiefonce. Loose booty bottoms made her by the way. From the way she dances to her stage persona. So keep it cute kitties. She doesnt have one original bone in her body. And thats a flawless fact. Boop

      • TRUTH SERUM August 7, 2014

        Because you’re posted in every Bey post with the same tired shade. Chile cheese

      • Rihboy August 7, 2014

        The only thing tired is this try hard.


    I could have told you that! Who else was going to get such a prestigious award? Christina Aguilera? LMAO

  35. Elke Hassell August 7, 2014

    Where any of them worthy of that prestigious award in my opinion? NO none of them, just like Britney Spears age what early 30’s was NOT worthy of the “Lifetime Achievement Award” when she is merely 30!!! So many many Legends of the time are overlooked in these important and prestigious awards that it blows my mind, how they can pick these Disney Channel People. Did Janet Jackson receive the Lifetime Award?? NO! Michael Jackson only received it AFTER he died! I just don’t get it really. But that is just my opinion, Beyonce use to be good, but since Jay-Z she has gone down the drain and joined the rest of the Illu Puppets.

  36. Beysus August 7, 2014


  37. ummm August 7, 2014

    Her videos aren’t great, but if JT got one, I guess Bey is the
    option. People settle for mediocrity these days. Oh, and btw,
    Britney did deserve hers. When Baby More Time hit, Brit
    became an instant icon. I’m NO fan of hers, but yeah.

  38. I Stan For Myself August 7, 2014

    Of course Beyoncé deserves it. She has iconic visuals/choreography in videos/recognizable costumes in videos across the past decade, almost two. Sorry guys but Beyoncé IS inscribed in this generation of music like it or not. She deserved every honorary award she gets. Congrats I say, no hate here.

  39. Mark111 August 7, 2014

    Even tho her past few era had cheap green screen videos, she still rocked them out and deserves this award. This is her year and I’m telling you, she will win album of the year at the grammys next year.

  40. teee August 7, 2014

    When I say the queen has just started I mean it. All them b!itches are gonna run mad & not that puke stan talking s*** when its worthless fav was booted to trunk while she is making a jazz album nobody cares about SHAME…….

  41. Suicide Blonde August 7, 2014

    She owns this year, album, tour, acclaim, gossip, so therefore awards will come, maybe 10 Grammys for BEYONCE, i mean, she received 5 for Sasha, so 🙂

    • OhReally August 7, 2014

      6 🙂

      • Suicide Blonde August 7, 2014

        Nahh, i say 20, 🙂

    • TRUTH SERUM August 7, 2014

      In my Esther voice.. “watch it Blondie”. Lol

    • Stephy August 7, 2014

      I think she will win about 7 or 8 kii

  42. TheYoncèTroll August 7, 2014

    No shade but Payola is in full works for these artists (last two years)
    JLO: Icon Award
    Ariana Grande: TRL for a Day
    Iggy: Fancy #1
    Mariah: Icon Award
    Beyoncé: MJ Award & the EXAGGERATING TIME Magazine article
    JT: 6 Million plaque & MJ Award
    Britney: TV Special & MJ Award
    Rihanna: Icon Award
    Katy Perry: Every single #1 especially Roar & Dark Horse
    Between all of these people, if you add up their latest release (albun sales), they barely tap 20 million albums sold collectively. I think anyone with eyes and sense can see what Lucifer is doing. But that’s none of my business though.

    • teee August 7, 2014

      You claim its none of your business but all I see is a pressed soul. Bey aint pay for nothing.

    • Barb B**** August 7, 2014

      But wheres the receipts?

  43. BrandyStan August 7, 2014

    As far as entertainment goes she is a beast so I think that this is what this award is for primarily because if it was just for singing she wouldn’t get it but anywho congrats to Beyoncè, she’s not a queen to me she’s always been Beyoncè or Bey. All that over the top crap ain’t necessary, I was over that a long time ago some of y’all doing too much on TGJ and y’all literally look stupid behind a all hyped up blog thats biased against other artists especially this one. No one is mad just making a clear statement, I just wished they would have waited to give her this when she the 20 year mark in her solo career thats all but congrats are due!! S/N: to you queens stop embarrassing yourself on here half of you all look very immature and uneducated and quit talking about who’s better and comparing artists it’s just a waste of time and try to act somewhat classy if you can help it

    • teee August 7, 2014

      Why the héll is this fàgg ranting. What do you have to say about Britney & JT. B!tches are MAD in here.

  44. Slay_Hive August 7, 2014

    yayyy!!! Congrats to Queen Bey!!! Can’t wait for this EPIC night. I guess the VMA’s will be getting my ratings this year! 😀 😀 😀

  45. TRUTH SERUM August 7, 2014

  46. B**** I Can’t Even Spell Welfare August 7, 2014

    I’m getting a facial from all of the pressed souls!

    Yassssssss Bey! & it’s well deserved.

  47. Lily August 7, 2014

    Maybe she will just disappoint you ppl again like she did at the Grammy with that Noodle hair and standing like stick or showing her p***y to the world.

    • teee August 7, 2014

      Fool & even that performance was not only the best performance of the night but better than ALL YOUR FAVS performances.

  48. Barb B**** August 7, 2014

    Im here for it!

  49. #TeamTinashe Stan (Debut Album “Aquarius” Comes Out September) August 7, 2014

    I respect Beyonce and she kinda deserves this for all the purloin efforts in her career to ‘act’ as a songwriter, style icon, and dancing. She deserves it!
    Next year I hope Tupac gets the award he truly deserves!

  50. Tyler August 7, 2014

    She’s one of, if not the best, OVERALL performer of her time. Hell yeah she deserves it.

  51. CherylSoldier August 7, 2014

    Please pay the navy dust. It’s funny how they weren’t saying anything when rihanna was awarded that icon award at the amas. The absolute hypocrisy.

  52. Greg_N_Greed August 7, 2014

    So Beyonce will soon recieve the same award Madonna received in 1986 and Janet in 1990. Congrats to her i guess!!!

    Congrats to Bey I knew they were gonna give it to her, instead of performing her hits she should do a medley of songs from the BEYONCÉ album.

      And by working hard you mean stepping all over people (ex-Destiny’s Child members) and stealing people’s music (Ne-Yo, Ryan Tedder) correct?

        Well, that business. All the greats have shady dealing. Nothing, new! MJ, Madonna, Mariah all were accused/sued for stealing songs & ideas from others. Also, some of those claims are actually true. Your not gonna make it to the top of the DEVILS game playing fair…

    The vmas is nothing but the cheap award show for white people just like EBT awards is for black people. If vmas didn’t have Beyoncé on their these dumb Stan’s will be calling vmas the next crappy show this year.


    Beyoncé Is The Only Artist That I Never Buy Her Albums Except “BEYONCÉ” Cause Her Music Doesn’t Speak To Me, But I Paye For Her Tours Because She’s A Great Performer! So Congratz Girl, I’ll Be Watching The VMA This Year!!
