Rumors are flying again that singer Beyonce is pregnant after a surprise performance at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. All summer long, the media speculated Beyonce was pregnant with her second child, and just as the rumors died down, the Bey-hive started buzzing again, reports Hollywood Take.
Photos from the September 30 secret performance in Las Vegas and the Global Citizen Festival, which attracted over 60,000 fans, have sparked rumors Beyonce is pregnant after viewers swear they saw a baby bump in Beyonce’s bodysuit.
At the surprise performance at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, which was kept entirely a secret, Beyonce was reportedly paid a jaw-dropping $6 million for the evening festivities at a private tech party, reports E! News. Although the appearance was kept on the down low, photos and video footage of the event naturally surfaced.
In the video of her performance, Beyonce shook it on stage, wearing a red sequin bodysuit and belting out her single “Crazy In Love,” reports E! News.
According to Hollywood Take, however, despite the energy in her performance and the tight outfit, one image in particular showed Beyonce might be pregnant. In the photo, Beyonce’s waist line bulges in just the right area.
Of course, it’s entirely possible Beyonce just ate too much on her recent family vacation and isn’t pregnant. In one family photo shared on Instagram, Beyonce holds a glass of champagne, which some believe is a clear indicator Beyonce isn’t pregnant. Still, fans are hoping that Blue Ivy will soon have a little brother or sister, since it’s well-known Beyonce and Jay-z want a large family.
Some people also claim that Beyonce sported a pregnant belly during the Global Citizen Festival, where she headlined. For her performance, Beyonce looked fabulous in a mesh bodysuit, but fans swear Beyonce looked pregnant in the designer ensemble.
During the Global Citizen Fesitval, Beyonce rocked it in the mesh bodysuit, as she performed her hit single “Drunk In Love” with none other than Ed Sheeran. In stark contrast to Beyonce’s designer duds, Sheeran went for his usual casual plaid flannel shirt.
Beyonce also had the honor of introducing Michelle Obama, who made a guest appearance at the Global Citizens Festival. Obama was present to promote her #62milliongirls Twitter initiative, which speaks up for the estimated 62 million girls globally who do not have access to education, according to Rolling Stone. It’s well documented that Michelle Obama and Beyonce are gal pals, and Mrs. Obama has stated if she could be anyone, she would want to be Beyonce.
Beyonce also shocked at the Global Citizens Festival by pairing with grunge rockers Pearl Jam for a jaw-dropping rendition of Bob Marley’s “Redemption Song.” Eddie Vedder welcomed Beyonce on stage, exclaiming “It’s not everyday you get to sing with a queen. Please welcome to the stage, Beyonce!”
Even with the First Lady and Eddie Vedder behind her, however, Beyonce still can’t seem to escape the rumors that she’s pregnant. Friend and former band mate, Michelle Williams, put a halt to the rumors recently, admonishing “when [Beyonce] was pregnant people said that she wasn’t pregnant,” asking the media to lay off because “you know, it’s just no truth to it. Sorry!”
Williams explained, referring to a photo of Beyonce in the sand, “first of all, if you look at the picture, the baby bump is like where her knees probably really are so that’s it, really.” She asked reporters to stop wondering if Beyonce is pregnant, begging, “[a]ll these allusions, just stop it, stop it, too many things.”
However, with the photos from the Palms Casino Resort and Global Citizens Festival performances, the gossip that Beyonce is pregnant has resurfaced.
