Beyoncé took home Billboard Music’s Artist Of The Millennium Award last night after it was determined that — yes — she is, in fact, better than Leonardo da Vinci, Andy Warhol, Jeff Koons or any other virtuoso from the past 1,000 years. After all, who would you rather see bust a move in that skimpy outfit: Pablo Picasso or Sasha Fierce?

(Before you say it, we already know that DaVinci, Warhol, Koons and Picasso aren’t the same kind of “artist” as Beyoncé, but thinking about them reenacting the choreography in her “Single Ladies” video makes for a pretty hilarious mental picture.)

Beyoncé’s song “Run The World (Girls)” (produced by Switch and Diplo, Major Lazer duo and superstar DJs in their own right) has been steadily climbing the charts and was the talk of the awards show ceremony. Just check the Twitter accounts of stars like Missy Elliott and Bey’s own sister Solange Knowles, who were among those in attendance to tweet their approval.

It was a killer performance if we do say so ourselves! Way to keep it fierce, Beyoncé.
