In case you hadn't noticed, Beyoncé graced the VMAs with her presence and took viewers on a spiritual journey of slayage and flawlessness (opens in new tab). But while everyone else was falling on the floor over Beyjus (no, guys, Ariana Grande literally fell on the floor), Us Weekly (opens in new tab) noticed that Kim and Kanye were sitting in a private room playing with their phones. In other words, they were #unimpressed.

The way we see it, the only possible reasons for Kim and Kanye ignoring Bey's show are:

1. They ascribe to the Church of Godney Spears (opens in new tab) instead.

2. That's it, no other reasons are acceptable.
