Beyoncé closed tonight's VMAs with a 15-minute medley that spanned almost her entire BEYONCÉ album—she performed at least a bit of almost every song, though "Pretty Hurts" was represented only from a snippet of Harvey Keitel's dialogue from the video, "Superpower" played as an instrumental over the snippet from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's TED talk used in "***Flawless," and "Heaven" was nowhere to be found, except for in our hearts.
Blue Ivy Carter could have stolen this year's VMAs, if only she weren't the daughter of the woman who actually stole the show, Beyoncé. Oh well. Better luck next year, kid.
This adorable, confusingly sexy video of Beyoncé apparently chatting on stage with her daughter Blue Ivy during a dress rehearsal for her Grammy performance of "Drunk in Love" leaked online sometime earlier today. Sample dialogue: "Surfboard! Hi mommy!"

Why did Jay-Z and Beyoncé name their daughter Blue Ivy? Possibly because they are exceedingly wealthy celebrities for whom the act of procreation is chiefly an exercise in branding... or because "Blue Ivy" is a secret code revealing her membership in an ancient and all-powerful occult secret society. Which could it be??
