Yahoo, reps for the MTV Video Music Awards have confirmed that Beyoncé will receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the August 24th ceremony.
Previous honourees include Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears and Madonna. They also report that the singer, who picked up a staggering EIGHT nominations, will also perform at the show, which takes place live from The Forum in Los Angeles. MTV are so thirsty for ratings.
