Well the title of Queen B sure will become official on May 22. According to Pop Eater Beyonce will be awarded with the Billboard Millennium Award . Read the details below….
Although Beyonce Knowles may already don the title of Queen B, Billboard is making it official, awarding the superstar with 2011′s Billboard Millennium Award.
Knowles, who has been topping Billboard’s charts since 2003, will be honored May 22 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, hosted by funny man, Ken Jeong. Her influence on the industry as a Sasha Fierce performer, actress and producer has cast her as a true living legend — only magnified by her union with equally influential music master, Jay Z.
The ‘Single Ladies’ singer will also be accompanied by her peers, Cee Lo Green, Nicki Minaj, Pitbull, The Black Eyed Peas, Rihanna, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum and Taio Cruz who will all perform at the show.
Born and bred as a founding force behind Destiny’s Child, she had us all saying her name before she went solo. From there, Knowles has gone on to win 16 Grammy Awards and shattered Billboard records with hits like, ‘Beautiful Liar.’
It’s no doubt that Knowles knows how to ‘Run The World (Girls)’ and her fourth studio album, set for release later this year, will continue to lead her from Destiny to reality.

Didn’t get enough of Kanye West in 2010? The Chi-town rapper is already planning big things for the New Year, making a grand announcement while celebrating New Year’s Eve in Las Vegas with his big brother Jay-Z. Though he promised that ‘Watch the Throne,’ his collabo project with Jigga, would land in stores before ’10′s end, ‘Ye has announced that the highly anticipated disc would be arriving in one week.
While performing his hit ‘Runaway’ and ‘Monster’ with Jay, Kanye took the opportunity to share with the audience at Marquee that the project will be here sooner than expected. “We got that new ‘Watch the Throne,’ comin’ in one week,” said a smiling ‘Ye, posted up next to Hov with a bottle of champagne in hand.
Kanye first revealed the project’s existence in August, when he announced on his Twitter account that he and Jay would be dropping the five-song mini-album, with the first single set to be ‘Monster.’ He later announced that the EP would be turned into a full-length album, heading to England with Jay to put in work on the LP.
So far, ‘Watch the Throne’ has spawned the single ‘That’s My B***h’ featuring Elly Jackson, with the track hitting the ‘Net in late November. The project is said to feature production from Pete Rock and Q-Tip, and ‘Ye has described that the album is “going to be very dark and sexy, like couture hip-hop.”
Jay-Z, Beyonce, Coldplay, Kanye West, John May played at last nights grand opening of Las Vegas’ latest resort, The Cosmopolitan. With Memphis Bleek by his side, he brought out Beyoncé, Kanye West, and John Mayer.
