How Rihanna’s night turned into Beyonce’s

Last week was the MTV’s Video Music Awards (VMAs) where Rihanna was honored by getting the VMA’s Vanguard Award. She got to perform 4 sets of medleys, each one with a specific tone.

Queen Bey made a huge impression on the red carpet, where she showed up not only accompanied by her daughter Blue Ivy but also by Mike Brown’s mother, Lesley McSpadden-Head;  Trayvon Martin’s mother, Sybrina Fulton; Oscar Grant’s mother, Wanda Johnson; and Eric Garner’s mother, Gwen Carr.

This Month Top Conversation: Miley Cyrus x Vogue & W mag The wannabe provocator pop singer Miley Cyrus strike two cover this month and prove us she can be even less dress than ever.
