Body’s still too bootylicious for ya, babe! Beyoncé’s butt looked out-of-this-world amazing when she made an appearance at the Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year Ceremony in NYC on Tuesday, Dec. 5. The superstar, 36, flaunted her enviable curves in a form-fitting black minidress with sparkly silver stripes. Check out her hot look in the video below!
Queen Bey was on hand to present former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick with the Muhammad Ali Legacy Award. The football player was given the honor for protesting racial inequality against African-Americans throughout the 2016-17 NFL season. Colin consistently took a knee when the national anthem was performed ahead of each game.
Even though his silent protest was denounced by President Donald Trump — who accused the athlete of disrespecting the American flag — Colin persisted. Beyoncé shared her admiration for the 30-year-old sportsman before handing him the award. “Thank you for your selfless heart and your conviction,” she said. “Thank you for your personal sacrifice.”
The Destiny’s Child alum added, “Colin took action with no fear of consequences or repercussion — only to change the world for the better. The change perception. To change the way we treat each other — especially people of color. We’re still waiting for the world to catch up.”

“It’s been said that racism is so American that when we protest racism, some assume we’re protesting America,” the mother-of-three — who shares daughter Blue Ivy, 5, and five-month-old twins Rumi and Sir with husband JAY-Z — continued. “So let’s be very clear: Colin has always been very respectful of the individuals who selflessly serve and protect our country and our communities and our families. His message is solely focused on social injustice for historically disenfranchised people.”
In response, Colin admitted he was “beyond humbled” to be presented with the award by Beyoncé — and expressed his gratitude for the recognition. “I say this fully aware of the importance of the virtues of modesty, humility and forbearance as to their chosen spiritual path,” he said. “I say this as a person who receives credit for using my platform to protest systemic oppression, racial injustice and the dire consequences of anti-blackness in America, as if these issues were born when I first began silently protesting police killing unarmed black and brown people. I stand on the shoulders of giants.”
