Here’s The Real Reason Beyoncé Skipped The 2022 VMAs

Here’s The Real Reason Beyoncé Skipped The 2022 VMAs

It’s safe to say that Beyoncé broke the Internet (again) with “BREAK MY SOUL” and the rollout of Renaissance, which quickly

became the first album by a woman to reach No. 1 in nearly a year (Adele’s 30 was the last). The album didn’t just enthrall the Beyhive with its 

extremely danceable music, but it also featured plenty of meaningful nods to Beyoncé’s 

creative forebears: from her “most fabulous” Uncle Jonny to the the iconic women honored on her “BREAK MY SOUL (THE QUEENS REMIX)” with Madonna.

The best part? This is only the beginning of Beyoncé’s Renaissance, which she’s described as a “three-act project ... recorded over three years” 

during the lockdown. So, yes, there’s even more on the way. You’d think that all this buzz would have

made it the perfect time for Beyoncé to appear and maybe even perform at the MTV Video Music Awards on Aug. 28. 

But the record-breaking Grammy winner doesn’t always take the typical route when it comes to promoting her music, and sometimes, that means skipping award shows.
