Beyonce accepted the Video Vanguard Award Sunday and absolutely SHUT DOWN The Forum in Inglewood, Calif., for a medley that lasted over 15 minutes.

Honored at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards for the indelible mark she's left on the network and the genre, the Queen claimed her throne in an epic performance:

Like last year's winner Justin Timberlake, the Video Vanguard Award is a lifetime achievement honor of sorts, and the recipient gets to put on a SHOW.

Not just a performance, but a mini-concert. Wearing a bedazzled, rainbow-colored body suit, Bey owned every minute of it as she went through her catalog.

Starting off the set with the mid-tempo "Mine," the 32-year-old transitioned into to favorites like "Drunk in Love" and "Partition," followed by "Rocket" and "Jealous."

While singing her hit "Drunk in Love," she was surrounded not by Jay Z, but by dancers covered in sparkling gold body paint in thongs and bras.

Speaking of Jay, can we finally put those Beyonce divorce rumors to rest? He was sitting in the audience the entire time ... along with little Blue Ivy!

The 2014 MTV Video Music Awards - a show now 30 years running, having outlived the music videos the network no longer even airs - were handed out Sunday.

Irony aside, without the VMAs, celebrities wouldn't have a much-needed summer excuse to bust out their zaniest getups, pull crazy $h!t and trend on social media.

Amber Rose at the VMAs
Hello there, Amber Rose! The model appears to have left some of her VMA dress at home.

Katy Perry and Ed Sheeran won Best Female and Best Male, respectively; Ariana Grande won Best Pop for “Problem” and Lorde won Best Rock for “Royals.”

There was also a touching Robin Williams VMA tribute, a half-naked Amber Rose on the red carpet, and performances and OMG moments galore, as expected.

Richard Attenborough, an acclaimed British actor and director whose film career spanned more than six decades, has passed away at the age of 90.

The actor's son, Michael, told the BBC that his father died, having been in poor health. UK Prime Minister David Cameron called him "one of the greats of cinema."

Attenborough

Attenborough won an Academy Award for Best Director with Gandhi in 1982, only one of many highlights of a distinguished career as actor and director.

With his distinctive white hair and beard, "Dickie" was one of the most familiar and beloved faces on the British film scene for more than half a century.

He appeared in a many major films, directed a series of them and was known for his extensive work as a goodwill ambassador for UNICEF as well.

Gandhi, a film that was 20 years in the making and won eight Oscars, including Best Picture, was his crowning achievement, but far from his only one.

He also played the theme park developer in Jurassic Park and Kriss Kringle in a remake of Miracle on 34th Street, showcasing his range in his later years.

Rap mogul Suge Knight was shot twice at 1OAK nightclub in West Hollywood, Calif., earlier this morning, and was taken to the hospital by ambulance.

The Death Row co-founder is in surgery, having been shot in the stomach and arm.

Witnesses including Tyson Beckford and Robert Ri'chard say they were at venue for a pre-VMA party hosted by Chris Brown when they heard four shots.

Suge Knight took at least one of those bullets fired by an unknown assailant.

Based on that, it is presumed he will be alright, although the nature of Suge's injuries isn't clear. Two others were shot in the altercation as well.

Iggy Azalea took an epic spill from the stage she was performing on Friday night, and she's lucky to be alright, because the fall looked pretty rough.

Two nights before the MTV Video Music Awards, Azalea was rapping her hit "Fancy" during a pre-VMA party at the Avalon when she lost sight of the stage.

As you can see from the video clip above, she went down HARD.

Fortunately for Iggy Iggs, she was not hurt by the fall, which clearly took the leggy Australian rapper by surprise and appeared to be from fairly high up.

Since "you already know" she's okay, it's okay to laugh. (Boooo.)

Even better, security helped the 24-year-old back onto the stage, where she laughed it up and received a huge ovation before carrying on like a champ.

Friday was a heck of a day for pre-VMA action. A Nicki Minaj "Anaconda" dancer was bitten by a snake at a rehearsal in addition to this Iggy incident.

See a second angle of Azalea's tumble after the jump:

A backup dancer working on the MTV Video Music Awards performance of Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda" was bitten by one of the actual snakes during rehearsal Friday.

A six-foot-long boa constrictor named Rocky, who was being used as a prop, bit the dancer; Minaj was on stage and personally rushed to her dancer's side.

This Nicki Minaj GIF may cause many anacondas to grow in length. If you know what we mean!

According to MTV, the incident occurred when the dancer was carrying the huge snake draped around her shoulders. The music was immediately stopped.

Minaj rushed over asking, "Did she just get bit by the snake?"

The snake, which constricts is prey, is not venomous. The unidentified female was treated at the scene where her wound was cleaned and then hospitalized.

This was done to prevent bacterial infection "out of an abidance of caution," said Chris Velvin, director of production safety for MTV's parent company Viacom.

The reality dating show ante has just been upped by Sex Box, the UK series now coming stateside. Yes, that is a real show and WE tv will be airing it.

The network has ordered nine, one-hour episodes of Sex Box. In this therapy-based series, couples go into a camera-free, soundproof box to have sex.

After that, they emerge for a post-coital breakdown with a panel of experts.

Sex Box
Sex Box is actually a show. It will air on WEtv and it will feature couples having sex. In a box.

In an era where Jessie Nizewitz goes on Dating Naked and then sues VH1 for showing her naked, and people get Married at First Sight, the competition is stiff.

No pun intended. But get ready to think outside the box ... pun intended.

“Sex Box is one of the most unique and compelling show concepts we’ve ever seen, and we can’t wait to bring it to WE tv,” said Marc Juris, the network’s president.

“Our couples will get a once-in-a-lifetime experience, while viewers will get the kind of bold, break-through-the-clutter programming they increasingly associate with WE tv.”

A Texas convenience store clerk who happens to be a part-time MMA fighter used that training to absolutely annihilate a pair of robbers near I-45 in Houston.

This is how it is DONE with the mixed martial arts:

Several weeks ago, thugs attacked a Houston Fuel Depot employee in the store parking lot as he returned from the bank, which they clearly knew he was doing.

What they didn't know was that the victim's co-worker inside the store and behind the counter, Mayura Dissanayake, was about to whoop their asses.

As soon as he saw the attack from inside, he rushed out with another employee and defended the victim, straight up TAKING IT to the band of hooligans.

Dissanayake, who has a decade of MMA training and competed in India's Super Fight League MMA under the nickname "Top Gun," lived up to his (unknown) reputation.
