Beyonce, Jay-Z Kept Solange Far Away During VMAs Moment With Blue Ivy
Beyoncé and Jay-Z have been hard at work repairing their image after several divorce rumours cropped up during their recent world tour.
So after Bey, Jay and daughter Blue Ivy stopped the show during Sunday's Video Music Awards, they decided to skip the traditional after-party scene and just kick it at their Los Angeles home (probably a good decision considering Blue is not quite ready for the clubs).
But did you notice something during MTV's broadcast?
Maybe the fact that Bey's sister Solange Knowles was nowhere to be found?
That's because the power couple purposely kept her at a distance, which wasn't a bad decision, considering Solange tried to murder Jay in an elevator after the Met Ball.
Page Six reports that Solange wasn't allowed "anywhere near Jay and Bey" during the show and was seated in a different section.
Meanwhile, Beyoncé was busy changing the course of the universe with her 15-minute musical presentation at the end of the show. The pop icon appeared onstage after all the awards were finished, and... well... our own Carolyn Menyes already summed it up pretty perfectly:
Looking as stunning as ever in a bejeweled one-piece suit, Beyoncé kicked off the Beyoncé medley with "Mine," moving through five of her album's slower tempo tracks before getting a little more saucy with "Blow" and "Drunk In Love," when things really kicked into crazy gear.
From there, the performance got an extra kick of sass, with Beyoncê defining feminism before showing she isn't just equal to all men, she is above all other beings.
Though she's best known for her strong demeanor, Beyoncé was notably emotional, getting teary eyed during her ode to her daughter "Blue" and almost cracking when her husband Jay Z and Blue Ivy herself appeared on stage to give her the Video Vanguard award.
Everything seems to be going well in the Jay-Bey camp, but they've still got a sister-sized problem to face eventually.
