Beyonce: Baby bump's real

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."

    Fertility clinics are staffed medical clinics that assist couples, and sometimes individuals, who want to become parents but for medical reasons have been unable to achieve this goal via the natural course. Clinics apply a number of diagnosis tests and sometimes very advanced medical treatments to obtain the desired conceptions and pregnancies...

    Who cares if her baby bump is real or not?! If she is using a surrogate, people would villify her without knowing whether or not she had some sort of fertility problem. Most people would just assume that she is being selfish and not wanting to give birth. So, I say, "Beyonce, you go girl, whether you're really preggers or paying a surrogate, it doesn't matter!"

    I saw the video and agree with the above posts...she's not pregnant, it's an act. Neither pantyhose nor Spanx would cause her dress to bunch up like that. Bottom line though, if she wants another woman to carry her baby then that's her decision.

      THERE'S NO SHAME in having to adopt or having a surrogate carry your baby, Beyonce. Many outstanding people and celebrities have done so. Remember, Beyonce, you are just human no matter what your press clippings say.

    Wow. The envy and hate for this woman. Sad that there's so many unhappy people in this world who automatically think of hateful and negative things to say about anyone. I guarantee that those kinds of people are just as hateful to people in their own lives. Be happy for your fellow human beings. It means that God can bless you too with anything your heart desires, in his will.

    I've viewed the videos...and it does look like something isn't right. The only theory I believe is that perhaps Bey or Jay isn't fertile. That would explain all the visits to the fertility clinics in LA. Yes I've found some pics of Jay & Bey entering the fertility clinic last year. Maybe they did get a serogant mother to carry the baby for them and they just don't want the public to know. I know some people that have done that.....just to keep people out of their business. It can be done...and the couples I'm talking about aren't wealthy like Jay & Bey. So it can be done....nothings wrong with it...maybe they just don't want people to know.

    One word...BULLish! I saw that video and that woman is not pregnant. The ONLY way I will believe her now is if she poses nude with her belly like Demi Moore and Nia Long and Jada Smith and other beautiful woman. If she can't do that then all bets are off! She is an attention hound so I can't see her NOT doing it IF she is for real. Only time will tell. I bet she has that baby in a freakin castle with armed guards so no one can see it. She is such a liar.

    I'm pregnant, too- due 2 months before her, and sometimes my bump looks like it's not even there! Maybe she's carrying similar to me- and staying very fit when pregnant. Also, there are other variables that determine bump size.

    I just watched the video and it really does look like it's collapsing. I don't doubt that she's pregnant, but it's really weird looking! Maybe it was the angle and the dress wrinkles a bit making it look that way.

    Wow it amazes me how people will sit and talk about someone else's unborn child like they are not human beings. All the negative comments are not called for. It's one thing to sit and talk about Jay-z and Bey, but their child, that's going to far. At the end of the day while you guys are on here wishing bad luck to a child they are still rich, they are still living better than you and their child will come out being rich and living better than your kids will ever be.

      That's what trolls do. There is no code of morals for trolls... the whole point is to get your reaction... which they did. Why are you so surprised? If you really find their comments to be abusive, ignorant, and just plain wrong, then report them. I don't understand why people complain yet don't realize the solution is just a click away... or if you are TOO lazy to do that, then ignore.
