7. Blue Ivy parades around her would-be kingdom
Bow down, peasants. Beyoncé attended the VMAs with little Blue Ivy in tow, who didn't seem particularly pleased to be in such a spotlight. It didn't stop her looking fierce though...Sasha Fierce.

The Internet took sides when Alicia Keys showed up at the VMAs makeup-free, with both praise and insults hurled at the musician. Some opinion eds later, Keys took to Twitter to make yet another statement.
