True to her fashion, singer and megastar Beyonce (pictured) dominated the subject of discussion about this year’s MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs).
The 34-year-old performer not only created a lot of buzz with her attention-getting wardrobe, she trounced the competition in the awards category as well. Beyonce got 11 VMA nominations going into the event, which was more than what any other entertainer received that night.
By the time it was all said and done, Beyonce walked away with an impressive seven VMA wins out of her 11 nods, including the highly desired Video of the Year Award for the visual of her hit song “Formation.” The song also helped her win awards for Best Choreography, Best Direction, Best Cinematography, and Best Editing.
Beyonce brought down the house once again by performing a medley at the VMAs, which featured a series of songs off “Lemonade,” the world-class singer’s unprecedented 2016 album, which also debuted as a short film. If that wasn’t enough overwhelming fanfare, Beyonce’s Reign of Fierce continued with yet some more musical accolades.
By winning seven of her 11 VMA nominations yesterday evening, Beyonce’s total number of VMA trophies rose to 24. This record-breaking number of VMA wins surpasses the previously-held record of 20 wins, which was Madonna’s official title in the record books for a long time.
Beyonce is currently riding the wave of a very successful year. Her “Lemonade” peaked at the top spot on the Billboard Top 200 music charts and sold 1.2 million units in the U.S. alone. The album also took the top spot on national music charts in well over 15 other countries across the world.
Beyonce’s 2016 Formation World Tour has grossed over $210 million dollars in ticket sales across the globe. Shows on this tour have sold out 40 times and Beyonce’s name is still cemented in the likes of the most successful performers in today’s music industry.
