The Most Epic Photo of All Time Brought to You by the 2016 VMAs

The 2016 VMAs was truly one for the record books. From Beyoncé’s out of this world performance depicting her new album, Lemonade, to Rihanna and Drake revealing the status of their relationship finally, this was a night for fans that they will talk about for decades. Of course, Kanye was given three minutes to pretty much say or do whatever he wanted and, like always, he did not disappoint. When the night came to a close and celebrities began heading to their after parties, the cameras were at the right place and at the right time for one of the most epic pictures of all time.

A bottle of wine with gorgeous glasses accented the table, and the dinner dishes had just been cleared. With each wife proudly standing behind her husband, there was not a single perfect smile not on full display. Fans of either of these stars cannot help but wonder what the conversations were possibly about. Perhaps money, fame, the epic performances given by most of the stars that night? Did they discuss their children, music, and current events? Regardless of what the topics of discussion included, this picture will probably be seen in record books next to musical and star perfection.

Beyonce Takes Her Daughter to an Awards Ceremony

The popular singer Beyonce appeared on Sunday night at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards together with her young daughter, Blue Ivy Carter. The singer’s appearance at the event occurred in conjunction with an act indirectly promoting Black Lives Matter, a controversial group that has recently voiced criticism of police nationwide for involvement in several disputed shootings. During the ceremony, she performed a medley of songs entitled “Lemonade” that ended dramatically with her backup dancers pretending to fall to the floor after a shooting. The performance leveled a not-so-subtle public attack on the actions of police.

Little Blue Ivy‘s appearance at the awards ceremony delighted the audience. The child, born on January 7, 2012 will turn five next year. Her mother revealed her anticipated birth at the MTV awards ceremony for the first time in 2011, happy news announced after the singer sustained a painful miscarriage early that year. Both Beyonce and her daughter wore designer gowns to the awards event, although they relied upon different fashion stylists. In the past, Beyonce has taken a number of publicity photos wearing the same clothing designs as her youngster.

Beyonce’s performance at the awards ceremony drew a harsh comment from former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani on Monday. Appearing on Fox and Friends, he vigorously defended the actions of the New York Police Department in protecting the public, including Black people. He criticized Black Lives Matter recently as “inherently racist” in focus.
