MTV has announced that Beyonce will perform at its Video Music Awards (VMAs) later this month and will also receive the coveted Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. Previous winners include Justin Timberlake, Madonna and Britney Spears.
The award is presented to musicians based on their lifetime body of work. Beyonce kicked off her show business career as a member of the all-girl group Destiny's Child in the 1990s. She released her first solo album, "Dangerously In Love," in 2003.
