Is Beyonce faking her pregnancy? That’s the verdict of many Internet dwellers, it would seem.
Since her appearance on Australia’s ‘Sunday Night’ show, the conspiracy theorists have been out in full flow. On said chat show, the singer was rocking a closely fitted red dress, and when she sat down, her baby bump appeared to FOLD.
In 2011, this sexist nonsense apparently counts as evidence that Beyonce is faking carrying human life. Groan.
Depressingly, many nitwits have been trawling recent pictures of the singer to back up their claims, presumably between watching YouTube clips about the Illuminati and Nazi moon bases.
Needless to say, reps for the singer have dismissed the suggestions of fakery, calling them “stupid, ridiculous, and false.”And Beyonce has also been defended by the host of ‘Sunday Night,’ Molly Meldrum. The Aussie TV personality phoned a radio show to let rip:
“It is a baby under Beyonce’s bonnet, as you put it, yes. She’s not freaking out [about the rumors], nor is Jay-Z – they are delighted. [The rumor is] the biggest nonsense I’ve ever heard in my life. She is well and truly pregnant, believe me, and the baby is due out in February. I think that’s weird. People’s imaginations tend to go a bit too wild.”
Chivalrous stuff, but slightly undermined by the fact Meldrum’s show replayed the “folding bump” footage on their show last night from three different angles. Nice one, guys.
