Two of the biggest artists on the planet got their S&M on, while the most adorable couple in Hollywood displayed some serious PDA.

But the 2011 Billboard Music Awards really belonged to Beyonce.

That's because the 29-year old superstar was honored with the Millenium Award at the ceremony, a trophy presented to her in a pre-recorded video by Lady Gaga, mother Tina Knowles and Michelle Obama.

Upon accepting the career achievement, Beyonce gave a shout-out to a certain hip hop icon in the crowd. She said: “I don’t want to put you on the spot because I know their probably putting a camera in your face right now, but I love me some Jay-Z.”

The singer also performed her latest hit, "Run the World (Girls)." Check it out below.

Beyonce served as the mentor on last night's American Idol performance show, offering advice to Scotty, Haley and Lauren. And, of course, giving her career a boost in the process.

The singer premiered the official music video for "Run the World (Girls)," an empowering single off her upcoming album, "4." It features Beyonce and a few dancing pals in a deserted African nation, shaking it for a group of men.

"I found a lot of inspiration in '90s R&B; Earth, Wind & Fire; DeBarge; Lionel Richie; Teena Marie," Beyonce said of the album. "I listened to a lot of Jackson 5 and New Edition, but also Adele, Florence + the Machine, and Prince. Add in my hip-hop influences, and you can hear how broad it is. I also gave myself more freedom to really belt out some songs, and bring soul singing back."

Beyonce wants you to "Move Your Body" and be healthy!

This remixed version of B's hit "Get Me Bodied" and accompanying video was created to benefit Michelle Obama's "Let's Move" campaign.

The First Lady's initiative campaign to fight obesity has drawn criticism from Sarah Palin (but what hasn't). Beyonce is all for it, though.

Watch the singer break it down in a school cafeteria, wearing short shorts and knee socks and promoting healthy eating and exercise!

The video will be distributed to junior high schools across the country to, as B puts it, promote the benefits of living and eating well.

Beyonce said of the video that "What we want to do is make it fun by doing something that we all love to do, and that's dance."

Dance she will - and so will schools across the country, who will perform the dance moves during a broadcast on Tuesday, May 3!

Pretty cool, right? Between this and the release of President Obama's birth certificate, it's been a good day for the First Family.

Beyonce has severed ties with her father. On a strictly professional basis, that is.

Matthew Knowles will no longer manage his daughter's career, a move Beyonce explained via the following statement:

"I've only parted ways with my father on a business level. He is my father for life and I love my dad dearly. I am grateful for everything he has taught me. I grew up watching both he and my mother manage and own their own businesses. They were hard-working entrepreneurs and I will continue to follow in their footsteps."

Beyonce, Dad

Matthew, who helped launch Destiny's Child with his daughter at the center, acknowledges the split was mutual and says his focus is now on "Music World Entertainment's growing gospel and inspirational music division."

Beyonce will release a new album later this year.

Featured in the 90th anniversary edition of French fashion magazine L'Officiel Paris, Beyonce finds herself at the center of a new controversy.

The singer/actress poses for the publication in African-inspired dresses and jewelry, honoring that region's artistic influences around the globe. But she also paints her face black, a move that has been met by criticism. In response, the magazine has released a statement that reads:

"The designs are all reflective of the African influence on fashion this season. As for the artistic make-up, the inspiration came from several African rituals during which paint is used on the face. We find the images beautiful and inspiring."

Watch the following, behind-the-scenes video of the pictorial and then give your opinion on the scandal below.

Rumors of a pregnant Beyonce are blowing up the web once again this week, but once again, it looks as though the baby talk was all a bit premature.

Sources seemingly confirmed that she and hubby Jay-Z were expecting, but just like last time (and the other 132 times) there's no child on the way.

Tina Knowles would know, and she told Ellen DeGeneres as much.

"Let's clear it up," Ellen tells Tina, who was not on the show simply to discuss her daughter's fertility, but to promote her new clothing line, Ms. Tina.

"Rumors say that Beyonce is pregnant. Are you going to be a grandmother again?"

"I heard that, but I'm here to clear the rumors up," the elder Knowles said. "Truth is, it's not Beyonce that's pregnant. It's me... I'm kidding, y'all. I'm 56. No, it's not true."

"Not right now. With all the rumors by now I should have 5-6 grandchildren."

She'll just have to dote on Solange Knowles' offspring for now.
