Beyonce Quashes Jay Z Divorce Rumours, Dominates World In 20 Minutes At 2014 MTV VMAs

Mrs. Carter is in the building.

Beyonce sashayed away on-stage, performing a medley of all 14 songs from her self-titled album, as she accepted her Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday.

But, the 32-year-old's "Flawless" performance isn't the only thing that transformed the VMAs into the BeyMAs — it was her personal cheering section.

Divorce rumours? What divorce rumours?

The "XO" singer silenced a summer of billion-dollar split gossip with a portrait of domestic bliss, celebrating with a hug and kiss with baby Blue Ivy and husband Jay Z.

"Yeah, mommy!" said Blue Ivy into the mic, as her mother accepted her lifetime achievement award. Jay Z followed, and called her "the greatest living entertainer."

With her trophy in hand, Beyonce kept her tearful thank you short, and sweet, while making specific reference to her famous family.

"I'm so full. Thank you. I have nothing to say, but I feel so much gratitude. I just thank G-d for this moment. I love y'all so much. Baby Blue, I love you. My beloved, I love you. My fans, I love you. MTV, I love you. Good night!"

The Houston-born triple threat also left with three other awards, including Best Choreography and Best Video with a Social Message for "Pretty Hurts," and Best Collaboration for what else, but "Drunk in Love," with Jay Z.

Beyonce's Destiny's Child bandmate Kelly Rowland also attended her big night, and danced from her seat in the audience.
