MTV Video Music Awards 2014: Beyonce Honored With Vanguard Award as Full Winners Are Revealed
The 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, which aired from the Forum in Inglewood, California, has just been wrapped up. As previously announced, Beyonce Knowles was a big winner at the event as she was honored with the coveted Video Vanguard Award.
"To the greatest living entertainer," husband Jay-Z, who carried their daughter Blue Ivy, said onstage while handing the award to his beloved wife. Looking emotional, Bey said, "I just thank God for this moment," before thanking her husband as well as her fans. "Blue Blue, I love you," she added.
Beyonce officially joins previous recipients of the award, which has so far included Madonna, Michael Jackson, Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake. Wrapping her figure in a Tom Ford custom bodysuit, the 32-year-old diva also rocked the arena with a lengthy medley of songs from her latest album.
