Beyonce's Heavy Metal Night at the BET Awards

No, Beyonce hasn’t turned into a rocker, but she did go for metallic in a big (and weighty) way at last night’s BET Awards in Los Angeles. She hit the red carpet in a stunning one of a kind crystal gown from Dolce & Gabbana, topped with a metal corset belt that an insider tells PEOPLE “weighs a million pounds!” She then changed into full C3P0 robot mode for a performance of her hit song “Get Me Bodied” — eventually, the robot shell came off to reveal a metal bra-let and mirrored gold leggings that seemed to be a little bit easier for booty-shaking. And Beyonce added a little bit more metal by the end of the night. The singer won two trophies for best R&B Female and Video of the Year, for her single, “Irreplaceable”.

I love beyonce, but what was she thinking? those outfits are horrible, the robot thing makes looks just too big, with all the millions she has she could come up with something better than that.

I hope that Beyonce finds a new stylist because she has been sporting the metallic look forever. Do something new!

I think Beyonce has been watching too much Star Wars and Anime lately.

I like the look though. Its fun and different.:)

This would be amazing- accept for the fact that Beyonce COPIED this act from Kylie Minogue!!

OMG. it’s not like she went out to Target with a robot suit on. It was for a performance, just like when Britney Spears held a snake for HER performance. GEE WHIZ!
