The release of Beyonce's interview with "Sunday Night" kicked off rampant speculation that the singer isn't really pregnant, and is instead rocking some sort of prosthetic baby bump.
Screengrabs of the interview placed the spotlight on the first few minutes, as the singer takes a seat to begin the interview. Speculators zeroed in on what they claim is a "collapsing" of her tummy about a minute in.
This isn't the first time rumors spread that Beyonce was wearing a prosthetic belly bump, and the singer's rep responded to them Tuesday, telling ABC News the gossip is "stupid, ridiculous and false."
Meanwhile, Beyonce herself is likely unconcerned with the gossip. As she tells Harper's Bazaar in the magazine's November issue, "I am finally at the stage in my life where I am not so concerned with other people's opinions about my life decisions," she says. "It is really liberating to know what I want, to know what truly makes me happy."
The singer reveals that she was pregnant through each of her recent performances, including her appearances at the Billboard Music Awards and Glastonbury earlier this year. "God has blessed us with the ultimate," she says of herself and husband Jay-Z.
Beyonce's been with the industry titan "since I was 20 years old," she tells the magazine.
"We took our time and developed an unbreakable friendship before we got married....But like anything great and successful in your life, marriage takes hard work and sacrifice. It has to be something both you and your husband deeply want. The best thing about marriage is the amount of growth you have because you can no longer hide from your insecurities. There's someone right there calling you out on your flaws and building you up when you need the support. If you are with the right person, it brings out the best version of you."
