Beyonce Was Late To The Grammys And Still Made History As The Artist With The Most Awards Ever
Last night at the Grammys, everyone was waiting to see if Beyoncé would make history by becoming the artist with the most awards in its 65-year history. And if anyone thought that she wouldn’t they’re fools because we all know the Grammys are just a popularity contest at this point. Since there’s no one more popular than Beyoncé she flexed her star power by taking her time getting to the ceremony and completely missed her first award of the evening. But that’s probably because she was still at home practicing her looks of “shock and awe” for when she won the award that actually mattered.
Page Six reports that while the rest of the class arrived on time at the Crypto.com Arena in L.A. to get through the boring part of the evening so they could get fucked up later, Beyoncé proved she’s the coolest kid in the room by showing up thirty minutes late. And she used an excuse that proves she’s just as lazy as the rest of us when it comes to explaining why we weren’t on time; traffic.
After the “Break My Soul” songstress won the award for Best R&B Song, Terius Nash and Nile Rodgers rushed to the stage to accept the award on her behalf.
While Nash — aka The-Dream — briefly thanked the crowd in a censored speech, Trevor Noah then stepped in to offer an explanation.
“So for real, Beyonce is on her way. The upside of hosting the Grammys in LA is that everyone can be here, the downside of hosting the Grammys in LA is the traffic,” Noah explained, despite already being half of an hour into the show.
Now, I see why Trevor Noah is dragging and stalling so damn much during the #Grammys2023 and The-Dream is just ….. #beyonce pic.twitter.com/4x0nNLvVKh

First of all, what underground cave did they find The Dream in? I had no idea that was him. Eventually, after that weird encounter, the Heavens parted, a choir of angels broke into the chorus from Irreplaceable, and Beyonce materialized wearing her finest Reynolds Wrap by Gucci couture gown to save the day. And Trevor took on the role of Royal Troubadour to announce the Queen had finally arrived.

Beyoncé didn’t win Album, Record, or Song of the Year, though. Those wins went to Harry Styles, Lizzo, and Bonnie Raitt. But who cares? She has more Grammys than EVERYONE, proving that when you know how to break records NOBODY can ever break your soul. Billboard reports;
[Beyonce] won four awards, which brings her career total to 32 awards. That tops the late classical conductor Sir Georg Solti for the most wins by anyone in Grammy history.
The superstar won best dance/electronic recording for “Break My Soul,” best traditional R&B performance for “Plastic Off the Sofa,” best R&B song for “Cuff It” and best dance/electronic album for Renaissance.
Beyoncé has been setting records at the Grammys for years. In 2010, she became the first female artist to win six Grammys in one night. In 2020, she became the woman with the most career Grammy wins (28), surpassing Alison Krauss.
And then the moment arrived; The Acceptance Speech! Would she be joyous? Would she be coy? Would she use tears? ALL OF THE ABOVE BITCH! And honestly, someone should have given her an Oscar afterward because this is probably the best performance she’s given since she said “I Do” to Jay-Z.

Beyonce’s “beautiful husband” must have been at home with the kids because I know she’s not talking about Jay-Z. And where does she keep all these damn Grammys? My guess is she uses them for door stops around the house to make sure she can hear what the kids are doing at all times. Either way, congrats, Bey!
