The Fix: Well done, Beyoncé

2011-05-23 11:19

Just when you think Beyoncé couldn’t possibly get any better, the Single Ladies singer went on to scoop  the this year’s Billboard Millennium Award.

With tributes from the likes of Michelle Obama, Stevie Wonder and Bono, it seems Beyoncé has officially solidified her star power in the world of music ... not that we ever doubted it!

Trying to fight back tears, Beyoncé accepted the award from her mother and stylist Tina Knowles last night in Las Vegas.

The Grammy award-winning artist thanked her husband, Jay Z.
