1. Last night at the VMAs, after Nicki Minaj shocked poor Rita Ora with her glorious butt and performed twice, she received a special present from Beyoncé:
“If Beyonce didn’t walk into your dressing room and give you a diamond ‘FLAWLESS’ necklace, then there’s no way you could be having a better week than me,” Minaj wrote, captioning the above Instagram photo. “Lol. Awwwww thank u QUEEN. ur just a precious gem. I could never thank you enough for your influence on powerful women all around the world. #WeFlawless.”
3. Is there anything better than two queens who love each other?
