When Beyonce announced her pregnancy in grand fashion at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards, most people were overjoyed with the news. Even though some rudely hoped openly that the baby ends up looking more like Beyonce than her hubby, Jay-Z, the general sentiment toward Beyonce and her unborn child was still one of kindness.
But the dark underbelly of humanity is "showing its ass," as Beyonce said in "Best Thing I Never Had."
A few blogs are perpetuating the rumors that Beyonce is "faking" her pregnancy. Nevermind that there were paparazzi photos of the singer with her obviously pregnant belly exposed in Croatia. Beyonce, some people insist, is definitely not pregnant! Or at least she's not as pregnant as she says she is.
The latest morsel of evidence that the conspiracy theorists have pounced on is a clip of the singer from an interview with the Australian media. They believe that her prosthetic belly "folds" in the clip. No one really has a believable or logical motive as to WHY Beyonce would go through the trouble of wearing a fake belly, but they insist they're right anyway.

This sort of blind, deranged foolishness is reminiscent of the witch hunt that some right-wingers launched in their fervent quest to deny that President Obama was born in the United States. That was until the president released his long-form birth certificate , making these people look like the asshats that they were. The Beyonce fake pregnancy conspiracists are cut from this very same cloth.
So what does Beyonce have to do? Whip out her EPT test for y'all? Set up an open house in her cervix and uterus so detractors can verify there's a fetus in there rather than a grocery bag of rolled up socks?
No, the best medicine for these fools will be Beyonce dropping off the first load of the baby's diaper genie at their doorstep. Since they wanna be all up in her shit, they might as well have a piece of it.
