Beyonce, feeling better, apologizes for canceled show

Beyoncé is on the rebound after canceling a concert Tuesday due to "dehydration and exhaustion."

In a letter on her website, the 31-year-old entertainer apologized to her "dearest fans" in Antwerp, Belgium, who missed out on seeing the singer perform yesterday.

"I've never postponed a show in my life," Beyoncé wrote. "It was very hard for me. I promise I will make it up very soon. I'm sorry if I disappointed you."

Bey called off the show under advisement from her doctors, who told her she needed to rest. Thanks to the timing, the announcement fueled speculation that the star is expecting her second child with husband Jay-Z, with whom she has a toddler, Blue Ivy.

Beyoncé made no mention of the pregnancy rumors in her apology note, but thanked her fans for their concern.

"I'm feeling much better now, and I'm ready to give you a great show," she said, confirming that Wednesday's performance in Antwerp will carry on uninterrupted.

The May 14 concert will be rescheduled, and those with tickets have been instructed to hold on to them for the new show date. Other stops on Bey's "Mrs. Carter Show" tour aren't expected to be affected.

    Beyonces speculated pregnancy number 2 is newsworthy. How will it affect the economy or my everyday living? The question begs...HOW IS THIS BEYONCES SPECULATED PREGNANCY NUMBER 2 NEWSWORTHY CNN?

    After Beyonces lip syncing scandal, she clearly had to hire a speech writer. I agree with Janice...that girl cannot speak if put on the spot without memorizing a speech beforehand. LMFA0

    Beyonces "self-hating" butt refuses to expose her child to the SUN to activate her childs melanin. Her ignorant-butt wants her child to remain jaundice and unhealthy. Shame on you Beyonce! Your daughter clearly has nappy hair and so do you under that sewed in weave.

    We know she was only dehydrated from spewing hot black poop from her behid for hours on end. Man that hotel room had to be burned after she was finished with it. That's what you get for eating too much shrimp in Cuba.

    I concur with Porsche. Another thing, why does Jay-Z look like a dog sniffing poop. Does he ever smile a day in his life? Beyonce, take off your sewed in weave and quit trying to pass off as White. Your daughter has a nappy hair. Hence, you are black.

    ALL beyonces worshippers buying tickets and her garbae clothing should be giving their paychecks directly to her weekly and biweekly! i was unhappy disappointed for an entire day when i was forced against my will to be at her concert and she sounds FAR worse in person than the HORRID sound of her voice from 1 vehicle passing by! PAY YOUR BILLS AND BUY A PIECE OF PROPERTY PUT FOOD ON YOUR TABLE VACATION AROUND THE WORLD AND STACK YOUR MONEY you ignorant fools that is what she is doing with YOUR money! OH YEAH WHILE YOUR HOME WITH YOUR LOW INCOME SELVES!

    Why is this news?? Why is this pathetic, phony and her drug dealing man on the covers of every news site lately?? We have become the laughing stock of the world. First of all, she was not pregnant the first time, second, why does America need a role model like these 2? A phony singer and mom and an ex drug dealing effeminate husband. Good god how far we've truly sunk.

      Um its not News, its entertainment. Thats why is was listed in the entertainment section of this site. I see that you are perfect and have never done anything in your life that was not considered kosher. Jay Z has been making music for a very long time. Whatever life he had before that is irrelevant. Also unless you were in the room when the baby was born what evidence do you have that she didnt give birth. If you dislike these people so much why do you bother to read articles about them. It makes not sense to take the effort to click on an article of someone you dont like only to make negative comments about them. Your comment says more about you and they type of person you are than anything about The Carter's.

    Oh I have been worried about Ms Knowles-Carter and wondering if she will ever conceive again! I have been pacing and lost sleep over this spending countless nights lying in bed fretting. Now that I know she is once again with child, I can go on with my life. Uggghhhh! I am happy for anyone who is expecting but SO WHAT! People care about their own lives and family and really could not care less about what Ms Knowles-Carter does.
