Beyonce Talks Fake Pregnancy Rumors with 'GQ'

Beyonce rocks a Brooklyn Nets hat and lacy bra in this newly released photo from her GQ February cover story.

Here’s some extra’s from the 31-year-old entertainer’s interview that were just released:

On rumors that her pregnancy was fake: “I felt like I kind of had to protect my mother [Tina], because when people made up the silliest rumor about me not really being pregnant, she was there when I went through all of those things. And my sister [Solange]. They were very, very defensive. It’s not personal to me, and it comes along with the job, but the lack of respect—people will just go too far sometimes.”

On giving birth to her daughter Blue Ivy Carter: “When I gave birth, that was the first time I truly let go and surrendered. And it taught me how amazing that feels… Giving birth made me realize the power of being a woman. I have so much more substance in my life. And expressing that excitement and that sensuality and the connection I have with my husband—I’m a lot more comfortable with that now. I actually feel like my child introduced me to myself.”

On her relationship with husband Jay-Z: “I was independent before I met my husband, and we have such a natural chemistry and a genuine relationship, and it’s based on the things that relationships are supposed to be based on. I’ve seen, growing up, when a woman or a man in a relationship—it doesn’t matter which one—doesn’t feel confident, they feel a bit trapped. Your self-worth is determined by you. You don’t have to depend on someone telling you who you are.”

    I do wonder, if Jay-Z was never Jay-Z, just some guy, worked as a roadie or a session musician, would Beyonce have ever looked twice at him?

  • sillyme

    That’s the thing about a lie, you have to keep telling it over and over again.

    Love BEY AND JAY

  • Kim

    I wonder if she will evolve as she gets older? I can’t imagine her still dressing like this at 40 (9 years from now).

  • Luiza

    I always thought she was really pregnant and everybody that said the opposite are going to see her baby bump on her documentary.

    She is smart. Of course, HBO must be paid a lot money for it.

  • Flashbacks

    It’s been really interesting watching her (as well as JT, Britney, Christina, etc.) go from the teen icons they were just a bit over ten years ago and see how they’ve taken on maintaining their careers and being adults. They all went down completely different paths. Yeah, some faltered, but they’re all still on top, and it makes me wonder what teen icons, today, will be able to say the same in 2023.

  • not her fan but


    why? because you’re supposed to change the way you dress as you get older? because that’s what society expects from you? Well, F*CK that.

  • MyLeNe – Montreal

    SHE WAS NOT PREGNANT ! Of course she need to continue to lies about that … until she died.

  • Leslie

    Call me crazy.. I know.. but I STILL don’t believe she was pregnant.. no way.

  • susan

    @She isn’t going to show no baby bump, she will show the same baby bump she showed the world when she was pregnant at 4 months, which any woman can eat and blow out their stomache. I don’t trust nothing this woman do, even if she showed us her bump at 8 months, I wouldn’t believe it because she said it herself, I am very powerful, she can easily get fake baby bump on tv to make it seem like its real. Have you seen some of the movies of pregnant when they used fake prosthetic baby bumps. Hollywood makes some of the great movies with make up, why wouldn’t you think she would use her money to continue on hiding her lie. She has an album coming out and she is trying to clean up her imagine from last year. Its nothing she can change about her baby bump inflating on national tv.

  • MyLeNe – Montreal


    we see the “4 months” baby bump you acutally talk about Susan in a very quick preview about the documentary … It’s totally the “buritos baby bump” we see on the beach when shoe wore a white bikini ! I’m sure evrybody remember that pictures !

  • susan

    @Leslie, I agree with you, she was never pregnant and with all her money, she can easily use hollywood technology to create this fake baby bump for this HBO special. If she really wanted to prove it she should’ve didn’t a year ago with a behind the scene live shoot. Her album is coming out and she is trying to clean up her image, from them taking over a hospital and from her fake pregancy.

  • samsam

    i still dont believe she was pregnant and i think that she doesn’t understand why. there were so many signs pointing towards her having a surrogate. her entire pregnancy was suspicious. i mean if she had a surrogate, who cares? half of hollywood or even the world does it.

  • Kim

    @not her fan but:

    That’s not what I am saying…as an artist she is the same as she were in her 20s. She has not grown as an artist period. Its more a statement on her than a statement about society!

  • Dane

    Some people have too much time on their hands. Only mentally ill people fake their pregnancy. Beyonce is going to fake her pregnancy for what, exactly?? Not even a fan of hers but it’s sad how people lose all of their common sense when it comes to this woman. Even if she used a surrogate,so what. She would have joined the millions of other women who have had surrogates.

  • MyLeNe – Montreal!

    She was very quick for a 9 months pregnant woman .. lol

  • anonymouse

    @not her fan but:

    no, you change the way you speak as you get older and wiser … clearly you still have many years to go

  • Marie

    You go girl, do your thing and continued blessings.

  • Penny

    @sillyme: Wow! Some people have lost their mind! And 9-11 never happened, and the Sandy Hook massacre was just a conspiracy! -rolls eyes-. Grow up people, or better, go to the psychiatrist.

  • lisa

    @PENNY, I guess you haven’t heard, Beyonce didn’t really sing at the inauguration, she faked it, lip sync. Do you still think she isn’t a fake.

  • Jovi92

    i think that she doesn’t admit that she had a surragate just because will ruin her “perfect” image… everybody will say “why? she doesn’t want a baby enough to get by herself? is she afraid of changing her body?”
    people do say this kind of stuff… so she simply choosed to lie about that, and pretends to had a normal pregnancy just like people would like.

  • Me.Phillippe ♥ (Spanish)

    In BeyoncĂ©’s new documentary that HBO will broadcast, you can see how she shows her belly swollen and pregnant.

    Only, that in his day (and I mean haters) they verified 100% that she was not pregnant as if they had lived with her entire pregnancy, now them do not know what to say.

    The last stupid thing I read was that in the documentary put a digital tummy.
    She was pregnant, believe it or not, in his last days he could see the legs, arms and face swollen.

    I’m not a fan of BeyoncĂ©. But I’m not going to base it on the doubt of their pregnancy, just for an interview in which ‘seems’ that carries a cushion.

  • not her fan but


    Nope, clearly i’m a foreginer.
    “no, you change the way you speak as you get older and wiser” – you also lose your brain cells as you get older. You are the best proof of that.

  • CutTheBS

    @Kim: Madonna didn’t!!!!!!

  • Kim

    @not her fan but:

    I wasn’t necessary referring to her clothes…just the fact she has not grown as an artist. She is not evolving. Her fashion is just one example to show she is still the same artist (in her 30s) as she was in her 20s.

  • Kelly

    @lisa: Whitney Houston didn’t sing the NA at the Superbowl. So what. She still did good. Even the band playing along with Beyonce used a pre-recorded track.

  • Courtney

    there’s no shame in using a surrogate if you can’t carrry a child yourself like Sarah Jessica Parker did for her twins after multiple miscarriages after her son. a child doesn’t stay in the same position in untero for their mothers entire pregnancy and photo angles can also hide a pregnancy unless there are complications present that make the mom gain excessive weight and or make her have a larger than average baby

  • nika

    I remember that “baby bump” she had on the beach. Even I can do that if I eat a lot…it’s not about being pregnant or not, but about the fact that she lied to everyone. I don’t think that a surrogate mother is bad especially if you can’t have baby yourself. Anyways I started to hate her after reading her recent interviews when she says how amazing and powerful she is. She kinda forgets the fact that she’s just a singer and she doesn’t do anything so special. I kinda see why she’s so obsessed with Obama and I wouldn’t be surprised if she wanted him for herself.

  • LaCroix

    So tired of this girl..

  • Sheila

    Beyonce is so up her own a**. She thinks every song she sings is a hit we will remember years from now (nope), thinks everything she says is so meaninfula and profound (not), thinksevery emotion she has is so deep (nope, puddle-in-depth), thinks she’s the only woman who has ever given birth (puh-leeze) and that her marriage is the best of the best (yeah..that is why before she got “pregnant” JZ was partying with other girls in clubs all the time).

    Beyonce thinks she is legend like Michael Jackson or Tina Turner or The Beatles. But NO, she is just a chick who sings little pop songs that we dance and hum and then forget!!!

  • Nicky

    More lies after lies,but i doubt she will confess she paid a surrogate,she even closed a whole hospital floor and got rid of the cameras to hide the truth.Her ego is too big to make her admit the truth.She thinks she’s a powerful star,but she isn’t special.If she really gave birth(that photo on the beach isn’t a proof anyway),she should show all the photos,since the beggining of the “pregnancy’.
    She will lie,lie and lie until someone from her staff tells the truth.She’s a fraud,but her ego won’t allow her to tell the truth.She’s pathetic and should stop lying in interviews.Everybody knows she faked the pregnancy,she should admit it before being caught.If she was really pregnant,she should stop speaking about it over,over and over again and prove it.
    And you know that the whole documentary about her will be edited,fake and photoshopped in everything.She directed it,so she can edit everything there.

  • Juliana
  • Tina

    I wonder what she has to say about Wendy Williams calling her out on her “5th grade education” speech..

  • YAWN

    this behind the scenes proves she was photoshoped, all the pics that reveal her lumpy tummy, thunder thighs are either blurred, darkened or non existent. notice how the cover picture never shows up in the video, you only see the upper half and those gaping thighs are non existent.

    why does she keep saying when i gave birth all the time? who say that, unless you go on to reveal the labor? woman say when i had my baby. FAKER.

  • Willow

    Just watch this video if you have any doubts about the fake pregnancy.

  • Willow

    It’s part vanity, part business (can’t dance like that when preggers)

  • YAWN

    @Me.Phillippe ♥ (Spanish):

    we are not as stupid as beyawnce stans. that damage control documentary which she herself is the producer, director and editor will be higherly manipulated and extremely edited and will only further expose her as a self-centered narcissistic FAKER. she better show a bare 7-8 months pregnant belly from front and side with her head included and she also has to rub that thing, otherwise we will know she is afraid that it might fall apart. she needs to stop with that gut full of food combined with period bloats, and full bladder, show 7-8 months or it didn’t happen.

    lets not forget the deflating belly, notice how we also neverr seen her getting up from that chair? and how she managed to hop into a van 9 months “pregnant” and claimed to have lost 60lbs of baby weight.

    if she also wants to use a sonogram then she better show herself on that table getting that jelly on her belly for the ultrasound.

    go the whole nine yards or don’t bother at All, its the same crappy cat and mouse game she plays the people with pictures of her baby.

    she is sooooooo tiring.

  • oy

    She’s become Sasha Weird.

  • lafamepoma

    i don’t understand why everybody tell that she was not pregnant? my question is, if it’s true why she lied? she didn’t want to feel the pain? she didn’t want to lose her shape? i wanna know your reasons to not believe in that pregnancy

  • harhar

    beyonce, please stop telling the world that you are an independent woman. you went from your father’s hand to your husband’s. you have never managed your own career and you have been taking your clothes off for the last 8yrs of it. you wear wigs, bleach your skin which is unnatural. you are barely high school educated and married to a former longtime drug dealer… and you want people to look up to you? just sing bish and stop talking!!

  • Julia

    If Beyonce is so worried about what people think about her pregnancy, she needs to get pregnant again and this time have a real one! :)

  • sheigh

    She had a quick pregnancy and she never lose her baby weight, she didn’t get it! And of course, with Jay Z’s blood her baby girl, not a boy, get curly brown hair and light skin! Sorry but genetic with Bey is some kind there is no lottery!



    her album was flopping hard so she needed a gimmick and sympathy sales, She fake her pregnancy and it backfired HARD!! and flopped even HARDER! LOL.

    @ Sheigh, that first pictures they showed looked nothing like the gorilla that she carries around, and is ashamed to fully show. those first pics were fake a reborn doll blue looks nothing like that she looks like her ugly father.

  • http://yahoo ccinthelou

    @MyLeNe – Montreal:

    I believe she was not pregnant either. Because there are two pictures of two different looking children. One with a child with hardly any hair and one with a child with a lot of hair, both posted on the same day she supposedly gave birth. This is all a publicity stunt to get people to watch the super bowl. Remember, this girl has to pay back $50 mil to Pepsi.
