    Full occult display rite under our noses. Nothing new, zero value.

  • xyz

    She didnt slay or shut down anything, welcome to reality, sheeple!

  • KloppoMania

    She put on better performances in the past. But compared to the woeful Britney or the mediocre Riri, she’s the number 0ne performer in the business, as far as I’m concerned.

  • Melissa

    Am I the only one sick of her flaunting her ass on stage? Bring your daughter to the VMA’s, act like a stripper on stage. Gross.

  • arethetwoyearsoveryet?

    wonder if she had police guarding her? NOT a good idea for show. I wouldnt pay money to see her anit-police performance. She is thinking she speaks for all. WRONG

  • Will

    Selling your body for money what a great example you are Beyoncé, and every other prostitute who did the same thing, too many to mention.

    Her music has become so dramatic and boring. Thats the bad part of getting older, you arent as fun as when you are young

  • HankHill/Back the Badge

    She needs to lose some weight.

    She speaks for all who care about police brutality. If officers and others refuse to acknowledge there’s a rotten minority in their ranks, then they’re part of the problem.

  • arethetwoyearsoveryet?

    Nothing more that insults me is people tagging on to what is not right. Police brutality happens but majority of those who charge misbehavior on the police are just blind to the fact that many of those who were killed were breaking the law. How about beyonce giving tribute to those who asked for it. Many of those who died were breaking the law and didnt want to submit to their arrest. Id say they were the gun that killed them by their own unlawful acts and not the police.

  • Anonymous

    do you say that to the actresses that are in movies playing whores and dressing skimpy? Beyonce’s stage presence a performance, she is in character, you never see here walking around with her daughter or off the stage in an outfit like that..she is an artist and she is in character so fuck off dumbass

  • abbie

    If men are weak enough to buy it, then who is the real problem?

  • GlideGirl

    Whites break the same law and live. That’s the issue and the difference. Plus, petty crimes don’t make the cops the judge, jury and executioner. Not to mention, too often blacks are killed by trigger happy thug cops simply because of FEAR of blacks. No crime. Innocent.

    Unarmed blacks are shot like animals by those paid to protect and serve but many of whom are proven racists or who have prejudices that they act on. Then the general public supports cops blindly because they also hate black people. Finally, those killer cops go home without charges. Hence Beyonce, Kendrick Lemar and Colin Kaepernick. More power to them. The national anthem is racist. Discuss that!

    I am happy that Bey and people in her position are bringing these issues forward for a global discussion as did the late Muhammad Ali vs. being silent entertainers for white fragility. Learn something.

  • GlideGirl

    How about instead of ‘fun,’ she takes a moment to acknowledge the condition and state of tragedies affecting people in AmeriKKKa? She’ll get back to the fun but we don’t all party at the funeral. I’m sure there are plenty of artists who ignore the issues of those they generate wealth from. Bey ain’t one.

  • Michelle Eve

    Rih flaunts her ass too and you don’t complain about that! Get a life and call a spade a spade..

  • Michelle Eve

    Only sheep is you jealous one! Bey made Rih look like the mediocre artist she is, deal with it!

  • Michelle Eve

    Rih sells her body! Do you have a problem with that?

  • Michelle Eve

    So uninformed!

  • Michelle Eve

    Why?

  • Michelle Eve

    Best performance of the night!

  • xica

    You have snacks after funerals when you’re supposed to be sad and not feeling like eating something

  • Amy

    tbh, it was too long and boring! It’s always the same thing… Nothing new and fresh.
    And it was necessary such a long performance? She wanted all the attention for herself… The same b*¨tch as always.
    And can we talk about the playback? lol

  • MD

    It’s not anti police but keep thinking what you want. I am tired of trying to talk sense into scared ass white Americans.

  • MD

    Yes because NO ONE has to sell sex to make money in movies, tv, commercials, music and so on. She’s the only person who sells sex so let’s focus on her and attack her.

  • MD

    wow, you are very unlikable and judgmental. The very type of person I hope dies out and never comes back to this country. I am sick of people like This. This sort of narrow minded, judgmental crap is old school hate and control. Go somewhere with that mess. If you don’t like her, fucking don’t watch. That’s what being free means. You can bitch all you want, bu that won’t stop others from liking her. it just makes you look small Or jealous or bigoted or unable to appreciate people different from you. None are qualities I want to see in future generations.

  • MD

    Well, you seem unpleasant to be around. Geesh. bitch bitch, complain and moan. yeah, those are new qualities I NEVER see online from commentators. Seems like you are the same bitch as most haters so at least you got not changing from the normal in common.

  • MD

    Dude, you are using hank hill as your avatar. That likely means you are not the best looking person in the world because you put effort to have an avatar but not your own picture. STFU, seriously. If you can’t even be man enough to show your face then let’s not make nasty comments about a beautiful person’s body. You have no credibility.

  • MD

    Stupidest comment of the night. Yes, the death penalty for minor crimes is the perfect solution. Why though do you think they seem to focus on killing more blacks who comment small crimes and not whites? You are part of the problem. Your blindness is getting people killed. And if you think selling loose cigs on a street corner warrants a death choke hold then you are just an asshole and therefore your opinion is tainted by that asshole-ness you call a personality. .

  • MD

    Thank you!!! Will act like men are not the one’s being she’s targeting. If men were not so STUPID to be so easily manipulated by this then women would not “rightfully” use sex appeal but it works. I am an man. I am sick and tired of men being the problem and then shaming women for reacting to the problem. Treat women as more than sex objects, as equals, and you won’t see this anymore. Until then, STFU as you are part of the problem.

  • Formation

    It was good but not a great performance, I’ve seen better performances from the Queen! Even with her “weak performance”, she’s still slay and still in a different league than those auto tune muppet singers! Congratulations for being MTV’s most awarded artist of all time! Bow down, stupid haters!

  • Santiago

    do you think Brittney was better?

  • Yogi X

    So she did completely new songs, but she’s done nothing new. You can’t be this stupid. Then again….

  • Grace

    So why did she get 15 min? Not that she isn’t worthy of that much time but in that amount of time at least two more acts could have performed.

  • Brit

    Because she won more VMAs last night than anyone else in the show (8 or more). As of last night she surpassed Madonna for most VMAs won in history. That is why.

  • Khloe Mason

    Wake up people! The movie stars or so called luminaries want to divide this country and create dissent against the establishment. These kind of performances encourage a vote for the Dems who definitely don’t want to see the poor ( Black or White) excel in life. Don’t you get it?! The movie stars will continue to promote liberal democratic policies pretending to be on the side of the less fortunate when the liberal democratic govt will continue to make the corporate rich richer and the poor will stay poor. We are headed towards world wide globalization where the middle class will soon become non existent. Trillions of dollars have been spent on the War on Poverty since the 60s and what does this country have to show for it? Just more poverty and ridiculous crime rates. The Queen Bee will continue to reign on her peons with these kind of fake proclamations. Same goes for George Clooney, timberlake, di caprio. You get the idea. Wake up people! Don’t buy into another president that will continue to secretly advocate for the rich while throwing out a few pennies to the poor as they continue to live in poverty without opportunity. I am not saying Trump is the answer but at least he has not accepted bribes while in office and confiscated government emails on a private server pretending to be clueless about scrubbing it. HiLIARy has been paid under the table by so many higher officials who will look for favors to be returned when she gets elected. Don’t buy Beyonce’s bleeding heart performance. There is nothing altruistic about her cries for justice. It’s all smoke and mirrors to fool the average joe that she and the rest of them are on your side.

  • Amy

    I was talking about her performance… It’s always the same. You’re the stupid who can’t accept different opinions lol

  • Amy

    And you seem like a justin bieber hardcore fan who can not accept a different opinion lol Really?
    I’m not a hater, neither a fan. She was just boring to me. And I don’t understand why a +10 min boring performance

  • Amy

    I wasn’t talking about Britney, or comparing it with her. so…

  • Von

    And such a wide ass too God put it away love, she needs ten pairs of those stocking she wears give it shape.

    The whole thing was boring actually, finally watched it JJ had up last two days. ( probably paid to)

    The songs such which doesn’t help and her act so tired, she been doing same show for years now.

    The only thing keeping me entertained was seeing how her lip movements ( pretend singing ) on few songs were couple seconds behind the track.. And sorry she sweats like pig, kinda gross to watch cause she has so many close ups.

  • Von

    At least they have songs people listen to.

    Beyoncé had zero hits last 3 albums & only one song in the last 3 albums even reached top 20 , “Dangerous in love” …which is copy of her 2001 song .. .”crazy in love” ..

    Beyoncé career is as stale as fuk, like her shows.

    Her last hit was 2009 ” single Ladies”

    She turing into Whitney Houston trotting her daughter to awards shows, in her videos, next she’ll bring her on stage.

    She even reduce to buying her awards..
    How did her crappy song win “video of the year”.
    It wasn’t a even top 40 hit, has less then 50 million views on Vevo.. While “hello” was #1, has more 1.6 BILLION views Vevo and first single that helped sell a album that sold more in it’s first day then Beyoncé album has sold in total so far.
    Same with Bieber ” sorry , #1 hit, over 1.7 BILLION views, from a album that has already 3 #1 hits.
    This was VMA not Grammy’s, when doesn’t a number hit and at least one most popular songs of the year win.

    Guess that ‘s why this VMA rating this were 34% down from last year.
    Everyone tired of weave tossing , ass flapping to music no one listens to.
