“OMG OMG OMG,” “OMG OMG BEYONCÉ PREGNANT AGAIN OMG!!,” went all the conversations in the world yesterday when rumors went a-whirling that the singer was pregnant with her second child.
Besides being a woman with a uterus where babies show up in sometimes it’s totally random, there was really no other evidence to substantiate the report.
The Sportpaleis in Antwerp is the current tour stop on her Mrs. Carter World Tour, and according to the singer’s publicist, she’s been instructed to spend it resting and not empowering the country’s citizens by observing that she can see their halos and reminding them how irreplaceable they are.
Following doctor’s orders, the entertainer was advised to cancel her concert in Belgium today because of “dehydration” and “exhaustion.”
Nowhere in there does Bey’s rep add “the second coming of Beyoncé’s DNA fused with Jay-Z’s DNA,” but a clinical suggestion leaves more room to interpretation than Beyoncé wearing a high-waisted Givenchy gown to the Met Gala last week. (In case you didn’t know how celebrity baby bump rumors work in the entertainment industry, not having a noticeable bump is just as eyebrow raising as having a very noticeable bump.)
This evening’s show has been rescheduled for another date in which ticketholders can later redeem them.
As for tomorrow’s concert at the same arena, Bey waits to hear if she’ll be allowed to perform. If she’ll be less “dehydrated” and less “exhausted,” which everyone will continue to read as less “impregnated.”
