On top of her EIGHT VMA nominations, Beyoncé is also receiving the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award -- the highest VMA honor.
Past Vanguard recipients include Madonna, Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, and of course, Michael Jackson.
And her loyal fanbase, the Beyhive, is rejoicing.
The whole Beyhive when Beyoncé accepts the vanguard award and thanks us. http://t.co/HImBzJGmvj
