Destiny’s child might be nothing but a sham, you guys! It looks like Beyonce is faking her pregnancy. The singer appeared on the Australian news program Sunday Night HD over the weekend — and when she sat down for a Q&A with the show’s host, her supposedly pregnant belly appeared to collapse in on itself, leaving viewers to speculate that it might be a prosthetic. Here’s a screengrab of the moment it flattens:
No way there’s an actual baby in there, right? So, what the hell? Why is Beyonce doing this? The rumor circulating is that the singer and her husband Jay-Z have hired a surrogate to carry the child. Presumably, the couple assumes that admitting so much would make them look bad, so they’re faking things with a foam fetus. Which makes Beyonce quotes like, “I want you to feel the love that’s growing inside me,” said at the MTV VMAs when her “pregnancy” was revealed, feel awfully manipulative.
Beyonce is officially 30-years-old, although there has been speculation her entire career that she’s actually several years older than that. So, conceivably, Beyonce feels she’s at an age when it’s no longer prudent to carry a child. The lies, they continue to mount!
So far Beyonce and Jay-Z have refused to comment. So, will they come clean or keep up the charade with an ever-expanding collection of prosthetics? And how bad will the backlash be? The child is due is February, so we have many more months to watch the saga unfold… and pop back into shape, etc.
UPDATE: Beyonce’s publicist has called the news, “Stupid, ridiculous and false.” All right, then.
