Beyonce wins big at MTV VMAs

  • Print

Beyonce swept the board at the MTV Video Music Awards 2014.

The 32-year-old singer was honored at the annual event last night (08.24.14) with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, and also collected the gongs for Best Video with a Social Message and Best Cinematography for 'Pretty Hurts', while she and Jay Z picked up the Best Collaboration prize for 'Drunk in Love'.

After performing a medley covering the entirety of her recent self-titled album, Beyonce shared a kiss with her husband and was also joined by their daughter Blue Ivy as she collected her lifetime achievement award.

As her family presented her with the Video Vanguard prize, the singer's two-year-old girl showed her approval, as she shouted: "Yay, mommy!"

Elsewhere, Miley Cyrus won the Video of the Year prize for 'Wrecking Ball', while Drake and Majid Jordan's hit 'Hold On (We're Going Home)' earned them the Best Hip-Hop Video award.

The ceremony started with a stellar performance from Ariana Grande, Jessie J and Nicki Minaj as they sang their hit 'Bang Bang', while the 'Anaconda' singer also almost suffered a wardrobe malfunction later in the show.
