Jay-Z gave a shout out to his mother, who identified herself as a lesbian on his track, “Smile.” He explained how thankful he was for her, allowing him to follow her example of love and acceptance.

Beyonce then applauded her uncle, Johnny, who lost his battle with HIV. She called him the most fabulous gay she ever knew. Johnny helped raise both Beyonce and Solange. Bey explained witnessing her uncle’s battle was one of the most painful experiences she ever lived.

She also added some light humor to the speech saying, “Who you make love to & take that a** to Red Lobster is your human right!”

The Queen B also celebrated her man. Okayy!! She said Jay has changed stigmas in hip-hop and taking those strides with him have made her so proud. Goals right there!
