    4. Sisqó and Beyoncé cohosted the MTV Movie Awards Pre-Show.

    I know, Beyoncé cohosting a non-main event. Crazy! This would be so beneath her today.

    Also, the placement of these sequins on the crotch area is, um...really questionable.

    I am sure she is wearing a Tina Knowles design.

    So let's blame Tina.

    5. Aaliyah was there too — her debut film, Romeo Must Die, had recently come out.

    6. Check out Beyoncé interviewing Aaliyah about her jump from music to film:

    Jason’s face in this photo is kinda giving off a Zoolander vibe.

    ...Cruel Intentions.

    It beat out American Beauty, American Pie, Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, and The Sixth Sense.
