So what’s the story with Beyonce’s Baby Bump? From the MTV announcement to today’s latest buzz, it would appear that everyone wants to see Beyonce fail in her motherhood enterprise. Which is rather lame and ridiculous.
The latest is her appearance in a TV show (Sunday Night HD), clearly wearing a fake baby bump, caught on (HD) camera. We’ll get to that prosthetic baby bump further down the (article) road. Stick with me for a minute and hit the jump to see where I’m taking all this! (also check out the videos at the end of the article)
Beyonce is a wonderful, talented young woman who’s living a dream. She knows what she wants and how to get it. And this time she wants that baby! (her due date is February – so that makes her about five months pregnant right now) And it’s pretty difficult to be pregnant anyway, let alone do it in the spotlight! The entire world, however, seems to be convinced that Beyonce can’t really be pregnant. That she’s faking it. That she’s not real. Because she’s too good to be. Real.
Now I’m talking to all of you trying so hard to find the error in Beyonce, like you were debugging a computer application! I think you should really find something interesting to do with all that wrongfully spent energy. Beyonce is hugely successful, really beautiful, obnoxiously rich and famous (so is her husband) and now she’s pregnant (remember we even saw pictures of her bare round belly last month, and that was pretty hard to fake). Yes, I’m convinced she was wearing a fake baby bump on MTV’s Red Carpet. Yes, I’m convinced she had an equally fake baby bump Sunday, on TV! But that’s for stage purposes only! Think, people, think! It’s like saying that people who use fake nails (or lashes) do that because they don’t already have their own nails (or lashes). Sure they do, only they want longer, perfect nails (lashes). To look good.
Artists use makeup. So do normal people. Only on stage, they have to use A LOT of makeup. So normal people like you and me, who may be sitting in the back rows at their concerts, we may get to better see their faces and their expressions. It’s all theatrical. Clothes, makeup, decorations. Beyonce’s baby bump is real alright! Only at this stage of her pregnancy, her early, barely burgeoning baby bump isn’t stage effective! It has to be bigger so everyone can see it’s a baby in there, not a really copious meal! (you saw it in her latest video too – Countdown – check it out below – although she’s terrifyingly active and mobile for a pregnant woman, in a pregnancy’s early months, that’s really possible, a woman can do that with her pregnant body if she already has the exercise and her body is used to exercising.)
Bottom line: yeah, I’m okay with Beyonce wearing a prosthetic baby bump for theatrical reasons. Because that’s what I think she’s doing. Because I really believe that she’s only enhancing the reality, NOT faking it altogether! What do YOU really believe?
