Oh, Baby! Beyonce Is The Master Of Baby Bump Disguise

Beyonce tends to be quiet about her personal bidness (remember that whole secret wedding thing? We know), which is why hearing her squeak out about her ever-expanding baby bump is extra adorable. Could someone please make a dance remix of Bey’s “Oh, baby!” riff from this behind-the-scenes footage from her Live at Roseland: Elements of 4 DVD? Holding up the New York Daily News from September 23, the “Love on Top” singer is practically swooning. “Right now, I’m actually shooting the video,” Beyonce explains. “And I’m six months pregnant, pretending that my stomach is flat in bodysuits!” At least until she turned sideways that is. Then BAM! Fetus fierceness.

In addition to being so cute we can barely stand it, Bey’s video made us realize that she truly has been an expert at playing down the size of her bump. Whether using sparkles, miniskirts or good old fashioned black leggings, Bey kept her belly under wraps until very recently, at which time Babyonce simply refused to be denied (we’re assuming).

Beyonce Accused Of Plagiarism For “Countdown” Video

It’s hard to question the perfection of Beyoncé’s “Countdown” video; when we first saw it, we thought our faces would melt off like in Raiders Of The Lost Ark from its flawlessness. Belgian choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, however, is definitely not pleased with Queen Bey’s creation, and is now alleging Beyoncé’s “Countdown” video plagiarizes her dance routines. “I didn’t know anything about it. I’m not mad, but this is plagiarism,” De Keersmaker allegedly told a Danish blog. Thus the seeds of the world’s greatest breakdance fight were planted.

The targets of De Keersmaeker’s accusation include a section of the video performed by ballerinas while Beyoncé looks into the camera, as well as another dance that is supposedly similar to one that won the choreographer the Dance Screen award in 1994. Say De Keersmaker, “What’s rude about it is that they don’t even bother about hiding it. They seem to think they could do it because it’s a famous work. … Am I honored? Look, I’ve seen local school kids doing this. That’s a lot more beautiful.” Oh my god, our hands almost burst into flames just typing that!
