The unfortunate incident added fuel to rumors that Beyonce has been wearing a prosthetic baby bump to make her look further along in her pregnancy that she actually is, a rumor denies, even after the seemingly indisputable video evidence.
According to Starcasm, a spokesman for the mommy to-be talked with ABC News yesterday and called the rumors “stupid, ridiculous and false.”
[Sidebar: Are the rumors “stupid, ridiculous, and false” or is it Beyonce’s baby bump that’s “stupid, ridiculous and false”? Hmmmm…]
Why on earth would Beyonce rock a fake baby bump you ask? Well many suspect that Bey doesn’t want to ruin her figure carrying her own child, so she and husband Jay-Z have hired a surrogate to do it for her.
But wait… while the surrogate rumor may be a bit overboard, some have speculated that Bey & Jay’s love of attention and money is the root of it all. Debating that perhaps Bey wants to be seen as bigger than she actually is so that she can make money from her pregnancy.
Welp… that may not be too far fetched. In a recent interview in Harper’s Bazaar Beyonce reveals her plans to launch a maternity clothing line….
She is reveling in the chance to seek out pieces to complement her new figure and is even at work on a maternity collection to add to the House of Deréon line she produces with her mother, Tina Knowles. “All I see now are clothes that are flattering on a pregnant woman,” she says. “It’s been so exciting for me! I love figuring out designs that still make me feel edgy and sexy while pregnant. Flowy fabrics are always flattering,” she says, “but I still rock my stilettos.
“I’ve had so much fun with fashion over the months,” she adds. “I have been pregnant through every event I’ve done, from the Billboard Awards to Glastonbury.”
In the issue, Beyonce also talks about her decision to reveal her pregnancy on the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards “Black carpet,” where she wore an orange Lanvin caftan and posed for photos caressing her noticeable new belly.
“I put a lot of thought into how I wanted to unveil it. It was important to me that I was able to do it myself,” Beyoncé explains. … “I was extremely nervous. It was the toughest red carpet I ever did.
“I didn’t want a crazy picture or gossip story to break the news,” she continues, “so I decided to say nothing and proudly show my baby bump. I felt it was more powerful to see the love and enthusiasm as opposed to saying anything.”

It wasn’t long after she revealed her pregnancy that the fake baby bump rumors started. Even Beyonce’s performance of LOVE ON TOP during the VMA’s was scrutinized as a publicity stunt, being that she dropped the mic at the end and rubbed her belly to the delight of the crowd.
Rumor has it that Bey wore a prosthetic baby bump for her historic announcement even though she was really pregnant because she was actually only a little more than eight weeks pregnant at the time and not really showing.
I dunno all the answers and I’m starting not to care…. BUT from the look on Beyonce’s face when she sat down in that interview, she did look like she’d been busted.
What do you think of all the FAKE baby bump hoopla?
