Beyoncé Was Near Tears After Her VMAs Performance

Happy? Sad? Overwhelmed at the astonishing (and likely exhausting) spectacle that she just pulled off? Beyoncé was very likely feeling the latter as she exited the state following her 16-minute VMAs performance and acceptance of the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. She looked near tears heading offstage! Don’t worry, though, because Blue was there to cheer her up: “Everybody say, ‘Good job!’” Blue is the best life coach. (Blue at 3:39!)
