spotlight: 2014 MTV VMA’s a.k.a the #BeyMAs

beyonce video vanguard 2104(2)

I’m not surprised that it would take the power of Bey to get me back to blogging…but she did it so let’s jump in it!

Last night, the incomparable Beyoncé Knowles was presented the MTV Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award. The Video Vanguard Award, also known as the Lifetime Achievement Award, is given to musicians who have made a profound effect on the MTV culture. Beyoncé’s influence is one of the strongest in the music industry today. With sold out tours, record-breaking music debuts, and successful endeavors amounting in a multi-million dollar net worth,  Beyoncé is the reason, the blueprint, and the design!

Since I haven’t down a rundown in a hot minute, why not breakdown Bey’s 15-minute mini set of songs from her self-titled album that dropped like a thief in the night last December. You ask “Why?”, flip the page and let me show you.

One is a hardcore dance jam that was passed up by Rihanna, and the others are by the Queen of EVERYTHING Mrs. Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter (yes, I geeked out right there, you should expect that by now.) ANNNDDD I have an extreme bone to pick with her too! Flip the page and we’ll get to gettin’!

spotlight: superbowl 2013 halftime rundown

yes, yes, and yes! werk Bey!

So as we all know there was a football game at the Beyoncé concert last Sunday. The Baltimore Ravens won the game (congrats to them), but Beyoncé won the night. Just a year ago, I reviewed Madonna’s Superbowl halftime performance, and here’s my rundown on Beyoncé’s from this year. It’s kinda becoming a tradition here…I hope next year’s show is as review-worthy as the past two. Pardon my lateness, it was so difficult to get a good video that wouldn’t get taken down by the time I published the blog, but to watch along with my commentary, click the tweet and let’s go!
