More Reasons Why Beyoncé Is Great


If you make a visual album and get nominated for crazy amounts of awards, you should probably honor your performers. Beyoncé gets this (or her people do, which is close enough to the same thing), once again proving that she stands apart as an unbelievable performer and public figure.

In case you didn’t catch the VMAs, Beyoncé made sure that her performers from Lemonade shared in the glory of the album’s eleven nominations. Cast members joined Beyoncé at the awards, including the mothers of Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, Mike Brown, and Oscar Grant, three of whom starred in Lemonade’s song “Forward.” Classy as per usual, Queen Bey.
