Despite rumors that Beyonce has basically been swimming in ketchup and hot sauce, the singer says she hasn’t had any weird pregnancy cravings. In fact, she finds her rumored pregnancy cravings “disgusting.”
In an interview with Katie Couric on 20/20, Couric told the singer:
“I also read that you like ice cream with hot chili sauce.”
“That’s very strange,” Beyonce said, saying she read those rumors too.
“Is that true?” Couric asked.
Beyonce answered: “No it is not. I was on a plane and the flight attendant came and was like, ‘I have your hot sauce and pickles and bananas.’ I was like, ‘That is absolutely disgusting, what are you doing?’ He’s like, ‘I read it on the Internet.’”
I want to know what airline carries pickles and hot sauce. Because I’m lucky to get a stale cookie.
“I’ve been really conscious [about food],” Beyonce says. “I’ve been trying my best not to lose control. Because I've met so many people that say, "My second baby, my third baby, I've learned my lesson",'' she explains of other mothers who struggled to lose their baby weight. So I haven't been going crazy. I know it's important that I don't lose myself.”
Beyonce also talks about her newly released DVD, Live at Roseland, which was filmed over four nights and shot during the early stage of her pregnancy. Beyonce directed the video herself.
Then, Couric asks Beyonce if she should get her a pink baby present or a blue one. Sneaky, Couric, very sneaky. But Bey didn’t fall for it. She simply put her finger over her mouth and said, “hhmmm.”
Couric is asking the wrong person. She should’ve asked Kelly Rowland. Because Rowland quite possibly accidentally leaked the gender of Beyonce’s baby when she referred to it as “she.”
Couric reminded Beyonce of that incident, but Beyonce dodged the issue appropriately.
“I don’t care. I just want — I’m just like everyone else. And now I know why people say that, it’s true. I just want [a healthy baby],” she said. “It's exciting! I know it's gonna be difficult at times. I know that, like my mother, I'm gonna get on my child's nerves [but] I'm just ready! I'm ready for the next chapter.”
And speaking of next chapters, Beyonce and Jay-Z have been spotted checking out homes in Miami Beach over the past month. Last week, the couple toured a mansion currently owned by Ricky Martin.
