Beyonce sat down with 20/20′s Katie Couric to discuss all the pregnancy rumors, as well as, her recent success. The story does not air until tonight at 10 but Necole Bitchie was able to get access to some of the story. TURNS OUT; the ‘fake baby bump’ was a stomach protector!
Now, I know a lot of people are going to have something to say about her wearing a protector, but when you are as famous as Beyonce, people become obsessed with you. Often, obsessions and infatuations lead to people wanting to harm the people they are infatuated with. And, even worse, there are enemies and haters that pose as fans that want to do the same. So, is it so farfetched that she wanted to wear a protector?
The truth is, it’s safety. I just want to make sure I can have a peaceful day. And I want to make sure my child is protected.
There are certain things that are so far [out] … it doesn’t even upset you,” Knowles said. Other rumors do take a toll, Knowles said, but on her protective family more than on her. When asked how excited about the baby Jay-Z was, Knowles said, “You can only imagine, and multiply that. It’s very exciting for both of us and our families. … Everyone is so anxious. It’s like the time just can’t come fast enough.”
Beyonce on confirming her pregnancy at the MTV Music Video Awards.
“Physically I was starting to show, so it was only a matter of days before someone zoomed in. So I just wanted it to be from me, and I wanted it to be something that was a celebration of something so beautiful. And I didn’t want to release a picture or a statement. I figured the biggest statement was to — just be.”
[After the announcement] I just felt free. I really did, because I’d been holding the most exciting thing in for so long, and I just felt like, Wow, now I can enjoy and now I can just experience this the way that every woman should. So I felt so liberated, and I felt like, Oh, I can breathe and be happy. And, you know, it was a beautiful feeling. … I went straight off the stage and just cried. I hugged my mom, I hugged Jay and just cried. It was a beautiful day.”
Beyonce on on the sex of the baby and Kelly Rowland referring to her baby as a ‘she’:
“I don’t care. I just want — I’m just like everyone else. And now I know why people say that, it’s true. I just want [a healthy baby],”
