Beyonce Performs at Billboard Music Awards
That Beyonce reign just won’t let up! She tore the stage at the Billboard Music Awards on Saturday night with her performance of “Who Run The World (Girls)”. The performance, which began with Beyonce declaring “Men have been given the chance to rule the world but ladies our revolution has begun. Let’s build a nation women everywhere run the world!”, was filled with special effects and tons of dancers.
After she performed, her mother Tina Knowles and nephew Julez presented her with the first ever Billboard Millennium Award. During her acceptance speech, she thanked her mother and father for “teaching me about the music industry [and] about work ethic and drive”. She also thanked her former group members Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams as well as the original members of Destiny’s Child. “I’d like to thank the original members of Destiny’s Child, LeToya Luckett and LaTavia Roberson.” Maybe now they can put the past behind them and work on that Destinys Child reunion 🙂
Her speech ended with a special thanks to her husband Jay-z who was smiling in the audience. “I’d like to thank my best friend. I don’t want to put you on the spot because I know they probably putting the camera in your face right now but I love me some Jay-Z“. Too cute!
