Beyonce gave the performance of all performances at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards Sunday night, singing a medley of hits from her Lemonade album. Her 16-minute set included strong messages projected in the background such as, “God is God, I Am Not,” and her dancers forming the female gender symbol. The least subtle and most pertinent message was her tribute to the Black Lives Matter movement.

The 34-year-old singer’s opening act of Pray You Catch Me, featured her dancers suddenly falling to the ground in a pool of red light as the beat hit, seemingly representing gunshots. Then a man in a black hoodie could be seen approaching the singer from behind and gently resting his hands on her shoulders. The strong visuals in this one number were a direct reference to gun violence and police shootings.

Beyonce set the tone earlier in the evening by bringing the mothers of Eric Garner, Michael Brown, Oscar Grant, and Trayvon Martin to the ceremony with her, and posing with them on the red carpet.

Check out a snippet of her performance below.

Apparently, after 10 years together, Jennifer and David broke-up for several months ago. However, things turned extremely sour while the pair were trying to work out a custody situation for their 8-year-old son, David Jr. According to the protection order, Jennifer claims the former wrestler exhibited “aggressive, threatening and harassing behavior toward me.” She also says, “I am now living in fear of further action David might take.”

After receiving the order of protection on Thursday, cops showed up to Hudson’s home, that she shared with David, and escorted him out.

Otunga’s attorney vehemently denies any wrongdoing on David’s behalf and claims that Jennifer is using this protection order as a ploy to get the courts to give her primary physical custody of David Jr.
