Beyonce speaks on those 'crazy' pregnancy rumors
Now that her daughter Blue Ivy is here, Beyonce is responding to those “crazy” rumors that surrounded her pregnancy.
The newly-minted “world's most beautiful woman” told People magazine that she was most flabbergasted by the gossip that suggested she and husband Jay-Z used a surrogate to carry their firstborn.
“That was crazy,” said the new mom, who gave birth back in January. “It wasn’t hurtful, it was just crazy. [I thought] ‘Where did they come up with this?’”
The 30-year-old superstar's mom, Tina Knowles, said she too was taken aback by the speculation.
“I thought it was very unfair and very cruel that someone would think that someone would be that diabolical to keep up a charade like that for nine months,” Tina told People. "As a mother it was painful for me ... And I even had people ask me, which was so ridiculous.”
A lot of the chatter was sparked after Beyonce conducted a televised interview with an Australian outlet in which the skeptical claimed one could see her baby bump "collapse," supposedly indicating that she was wearing a prosthetic stand-in.
“It was a fabric that folded,” the singer/actress clarified. “Does fabric not fold? Oh my gosh, so stupid." Also “ridiculous” were the rumors that she and Jay-Z gave the hospital Blue Ivy was delivered in a sky-high list of security demands.
But there's one thing that's not just another "crazy" rumor: The singer said she is swapping heels for flats in the wake of her daughter’s birth.
Beyonce told People her feet are “a lot rougher” post-pregnancy, and that now she’s less inclined to throw on the pumps.
"I never thought there would be a day when I wouldn't wear heels, but now that I have a child and I walk around holding her all day, I'm buying loafers and oxfords," she said. "[Jay-Z] loves when I wear flat shoes, which is surprising - he never saw me in flats!"
Think she'll rock the flats onstage? Fans will soon see: Beyonce is scheduled to headline a series of concerts in Atlantic City Memorial Day weekend.

@Charlotte: you must be like coffee with 6 creams. lol
My baby is lighter and has lighter eyes and straight light brown I and my husband are both black.D@mn most of must have gone to all white schools,well if you did and you never go to malls.Black people are all colors,people always ask me "what are you",which is very rude and I say i'm black they look astonished.Well that's what I am.Now about the baby weight loss,my mom bought me girdles to wear,right after I got home from the hospital it was painful but I wore them everyday for weeks even after I was able to start my workouts back.After ten I was four pounds lighter than my pre pregnancy weight.Yes every woman's different.
Elisa, I guess it should come as no surprise that we don't give a cr@p about you either. Celebrities know they're fair game.
This chick just needs to keep quiet. Everytime she opens her mouth she screws up. She is giving up heels since she "gave birth" yet she jumped and danced around stage and wore heels all during the time she was supposed to be pregnant. She says she walks around carrying the baby "all" day-right, like she doesn't have nannies. Why is she talking about this "rumor" again, she already addressed it before the baby was born. She just wants to keep her name out there. As far as "the most beautiful woman in the WORLD, who has seen ALL the women in the world to name her most beautiful. She is not the most beautiful woman in the United States much less the word. She needs publicity.
J Lo and Jenn Aniston aren't pretty by a longshot, everything they have is surgically enhanced and they are still ugly, so shut the hell up. Also she is most likely a hands on mother, even with nannies.
Apparently whenever you type you are just as dumb.
That is not a black looking baby
@HATERS- dude stop yelling. Calm down and find the caps lock key, dumba$$.
PUT YOUR HAND IN THE AIR IF YOU KNOW BEYONCE.......NONE KNOW HER MAYBE NEVER SEEN HER IN PERSON SO HOW CAN YOU SIT HERE AND JUDGE OR TALK ABOUT SOMEONE YOU DONT KNOW OR MAY NEVER EVEN MEET A DAY IN YOUR LIFE......SO WHAT IF SEE DID NOT CARRY HER BABY WHO CARES,,,,ITS HER BUSINESS AND NONE OF YOU CAN DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT....SO GET OVER IT AND GET A LIFE PLEASE AND THANK YOU........
Calm down there Haters.........Im sure she doesnt give a sh!t about you or what anyone says,
I still don't buy that she gave birth. As much as she loves fashion and she hid out. It takes most women a year to get back to the norm...it's going to take Jessica Simpson more than that because of the changes to her body, yet not two weeks after she gave birth she was back in her jeans. Pregnancy can be hard on a body and Jay-z isn't going to let that happen.
Every female body is different and requires a different length of time to heal after pregnancy. Some never return to their pre-pregnancy size/weight- my mother falls in this category. Some manage to do it almost immediately- a very good friend of mine was like this. I have no doubt she was able to get in her regular jeans quickly, especially because she seems to be someone who likes to take care of herself so she probably had a very healthy pregnancy (meaning she didn't overeat and probably continued working out).
still don't get the "most beautiful woman" hype. i know several women that outclass beyonce. (not that hard to do) just tired of hearing about it.
Yes, but have you seen her pregnant cans!
Why did you hide it so much. You put it out there and went in like somebody wants your child. I don't and don't care. You are a lie when you say it hurt you. Bull, You don't create all those songs either, YOU PAY 4 THEM!We dont believe anything u say....
Oh lord, she's probably been reading the comments on the Marquee. We're all boned.
