Beyonce To Perform And Receive Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award At VMAs
If you haven’t had enough Beyonce his year between her latest album, 2 tours, endless drama and plenty of candid camera photos in between, you can get ready for more because she’s officially been confirmed to perform and receive the coveted Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Awards at the 2014 MTV VMAs.

Beyoncé is the latest to join the lineup of performers for the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, the network announced early Thursday morning.
The pop diva – she has a leading eight nominations this year — will also be rewarded with the night’s highest honor, the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.
She joins a list of iconic acts who have received the lifetime achievement honor, including Madonna, Beastie Boys, U2, George Michael and Janet Jackson.
Beyoncé’s history with MTV is extensive, with the superstar routinely using the VMA stage for some of her most career-defining performances. She hung from the ceiling for her first showing as a solo act in 2003 and caused Internet hysteria when she revealed she was pregnant at the end of her 2011 performance of “Love On Top.”
So what will she do this year to mark her big honor?
Last year’s honoree Justin Timberlake breezed through a nearly 15-minute retrospective of hits and reunited with ‘N Sync. But Beyoncé already revisited her catalog, and reunited with the group that launched her, Destiny’s Child, during her 2013 Super Bowl gig.
With nods being spread among numerous hits from her provocative visual album — which she released without warning late last year – it’s likely that she will mine the project for a medley or introduce a new single from the effort. Having spent the summer on the road with husband Jay Z for their On the Run tour in the midst of breakup rumors, maybe she will use the VMA stage to address the nonstop chatter.
The 2014 VMAs will air live on Aug. 24 from the Forum in Inglewood.
