Rihanna may have won the prestigious Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at MTV’s Video Music Awards Sunday night, but with wins in eight different categories, Beyoncé officially became the most decorated artist in VMA’s history.
Queen B took home Moonmen for “Best Female Video,” “Best Pop Video,” “Breakthrough Long Form Video,” “Best Choreography,” “Best Editing,” “Best Cinematography,” “Best Direction” and — last but not least — “Video of the Year,” officially surpassing Madonna’s record of 20. Bey has now won 24 of the coveted statues.
Of course, she also delivered what many considered the best performance of the night, taking the stage for a medley of five of her songs from Lemonade — including “Sorry,” “Hold Up” and “Formation.”
