Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

In case you were doing something important last night, like going to bed at a reasonable hour or whatever, here's Beyoncé's MTV Video Music Awards performance in full. Warning: You might cry. You might feel empowered. You might wake up from a black out in a couple hours with just a feeling of serenity and a receipt for a sparkly pantless bodysuit as proof that it all really did happen. (See Blue Ivy on stage at 16:23.)
