It's official – Beyoncé is a machine.

On Sunday night, Queen B won eight Moon Man trophies before surprising fans with a 16-minute medley of hits from her visual album Lemonade, which involved six outfit changes within the show's two-hour time slot.

Now, for a team that find it an effort to change into our gym gear after work, we can only imagine how tricky it would be to change that quickly so many times, not to mention the fact she slipped herself in and out of a Francesco Scognamiglio couture naked dress, an organza cape and gold jumpsuit.

This, coupled with the fact she treated the audience to a flawless performance of 'Pray You Catch Me', 'Hold Up', 'Sorry' and 'Formation' (surrounded by dozens of dancers, smoke, chalk and fire) it's safe to say no one deserved a lie down, a pair of fluffy slippers a cup of tea like Beyoncé.

So, imagine our shock when we saw the singer at dinner with the Queens and Kings of hip-hop, having to stand behind her husband Jay-Z while he enjoyed a nice sit down and a glass of wine.

Sorry Jay, but were you the one whipping your blonde dreadlocks angrily singing and dancing without fault for 16-minutes straight in front of a crowd of adoring fans? We think not. 

Following the award show, the singer and Jay-Z went out for pizza at New York's famous Pasquale Jones with what seemed to be a 'who's-who' of the music industry including Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Alicia Keys, Swizz Beatz, Diddy, Cassie and Steve Stoute.

Following their dinner, the friends posed for a photo where the female guests were snapped standing  behind their male partners, resting their hands on their shoulders. 

While the photo is adorable and makes our dinner soirées look like children's tea parties in comparison, we can't get over how Stepford Wives-esque the whole set up seems – the men enjoying their large glasses of vino as their wives and girlfriends dote on them from behind – especially given the fact the last thing Beyoncé probably wanted to do following her VMA performance was to, you know, stand up.

But, by the looks of it, we're not the only ones unimpressed with Queen B having to stand behind her husband.

Does anyone else think Beyonce's eyes scream, 'I've just slam-dunked at the VMAs and you're going to sit there and not offer me a seat? Get up, now' kind of looks'? 

Give the woman a seat, man.
