While I was initially pretty “meh” about this documentary, I can’t lie, seeing Beyoncé showing off her bare belly with a growing child in it got my eyes a little wide and both my curiosity and attention (I stole that line from the Django Unchained trailer *smiles*). “Whaaaaaaaaat!? Now this should be interesting for real,” I said. Knowles dropped an almost 30-second teaser of her upcoming HBO documentary, which she directed and produced herself. In the teaser, the singer flashes a wealth of images that describe her life on camera, and talks about the battle she says she has gone through in her career when it comes to exposing her family and her love life to her fans:  “I always battle with, how much do I reveal about myself?” We’ll also get to see more home videos of a young Beyoncé, as well as video of the singer rehearsing, on stage, moving about in the world as pan–make that, fandemonium ensues and more. But as I hinted to earlier, the most interesting part of this teaser is the glimpse we will get to see of Beyoncé during the early days of her pregnancy, and the baby bump as it grows and grows. I’m just trying to make sure we get to see a full shot of her and her belly, you know, so we know that it’s her. Kidding! But seriously, I’m excited to hear and see what she had to say about going through the ups and downs of pregnancy. I’m also wondering if she’ll respond to the many twisted theories and claims that her pregnancy wasn’t real. Either way, I’ll definitely be tuned in. The doc will premiere on February 16 and is sure to have people (especially the haters) talking.  Check out the teaser below and let us know what you think. Should be good!

    Please read where she clearly says she was pregnant and starting to show
    a bump. Even if she did not reveal how many months. Even if she was a
    week pregnant You will not be starting to have a bump and in January
    delivery. Lets forget she said two months …January marks 10 months
    from April. At Vmas was what month? December when she was all of sudden
    full was what month? HAve a seat Ypq said it perfectly and so did
    Meeyka. You want to believe. That. Do your research before you talk….
    The link wont post its a interview with Billboard and several other major sites have it up. Beyonce feared people knew at concert 4 she was pregnant. Have a seat getting defensive cause she show a picture of a tummy with no face.

    and why should I care????

  • NubiaDiva

    Beyonce made this whole thing an issue. She makes everything in her life a PR move. She announced her pregnancy at the VMA’s. She did that to help her album promotion. How about just let people figure it out as you grow? Now that the child is here she releases pics of the back of the girl’s head. If you don’t want people to see your baby just don’t release pictures. All of these hijinx coupled with the deflating belly and jumping in and out of suv’s makes her seem really contrived and not genuine. If you are contrived and not genuine, you are probably a liar and if you are a liar, then it wasn’t your dress that bunched up on tv, your belly deflated. And your belly deflated because you were never really pregnant. The conclusions that she was never pregnant fit together easier than the explanations. I don’t know if she was pregnant.. But she started this fire so it serves her right to have to put it out for years.

    • NiceNasty

      And I totally agree with everything you said. She did make this pregnancy a issue with her DRAMTICA VMA appearance. I mean she knows jus as well as we do that after that cameras, fans, stans, etc. was going to be watching her every move. And everybody ate it up just like she wanted you too. But seriously by now people should be able to see through the smoke and mirrors that she has been putting up for awhile now. And to be honest I feel like she’s jus sitting back laughing at how naive some people can be, to believe everything she puts out there.

  • http://twitter.com/alwaysmuah Ruthie

    Seriously people……ANY woman that has carried a child can look at the pics of Beyonce’ while she was preggors and know that the woman was pregnant…..Its pathetic to know that people buy into this controversy…omg…..seriously….

    • Cleo

      I agree, I believe she was pregnant.

    • TRUTH IS

      Any pics of her fullterm?!? Just asking

  • LiiSH

    I’m just not understanding why to this day whether she had the baby or not is an issue… Fact is she clearly has a child, is a mother, and there is sanctity in that. Its like people are making her out to be less of a mom b/c they don’t believe she had a baby. That is disgusting in itself and an insult to adoption. :: shrugs:: Personally I believe she did have a kid… but who cares if she didn’t.

    • monitorette

      You’re right to say that at the end of the day, Beyonce IS a MOTHER.

      • yql

        I agree 100% I just think people are getting the sense of a run around. Beyonce is not helping because its so important for her to prove she had this baby. The more she does it the more questionable it is. No it does not matter she is a mother to a healthy baby. That is the point. So she herself needs to let the rumors go and stop doing side things to respond. It brings it to be relevant when she does. Personally I think She had a surrogate. She was off on the timeline. She said she was 2 months in April 2011 is what gave it away for me, she said that clearly in several interviews. She needs to stop talking about it. Stop showing belly pics, leave it alone, if its so stupid and pointless which I agree it is. then she has more power to detour the focus. Talk about her baby , being a mom, pursuing her career and being happy. That is what the documentary should show she is still going back in time to make a point out of something that seems like a lie. Again I said seems, You have to understand this is a two way street. Like Rihanna you dont want no on in your business .. good she is right … its not our business so stop putting it out there on instagram and social media then when people comment your resort to oh I am private. That’s what keeps this Blue ivy issue alive. It really died down and people just want to see her little face. Now its storming up again cause of this … that is why I am saying she need to move on along with the people who are obsessed with it.

        • Rachel

          Nobody knows the timeline of her pregnancy because she NEVER said how far along she was.What interview did she say that in? Please get your facts straight. Why should she leave it alone? People are still saying she faked it. She has the right to defend herself and prove if she was. Are you upset that she’s goig to prove she actually was pregnant and you’ll look like a fool for accusing her of having a surrogate? You gotta have your FACTS , not personal opinions, if you’re going to claim she was never pregnant.

          • Sit Down O

            Please read where she clearly says she was pregnant and starting to show
            a bump and thought everyone could see. … the links wont post …. if you type it in Google you will see. Even if she did not reveal how many months. Even if she was a
            week pregnant You will not be starting to have a bump at one week or a a few weeks she clearly says that …. come on…..and in January
            delivery????. Lets forget she said two months …. At Vmas was what month? December when she was all of sudden
            full was what month? Have a seat Ypq said it perfectly and so did
            Meeyka. You want to believe, That. Do your research before you talk….

            They wont let me post the link but she admitted it she was preggers in April and starting to show a bump . even if she was one month the baby would not be due in January have a seat.

            To make matters worse Jayz says in Glory that she miscarried. Any woman that has miscarried would not be spinning and dipping in heals on stage so early on if she is known to be prone to miscarry. Girl bye.

            • Lestle

              sorry I have to cosign it is in interviews where she said that then said she started to show around the VMAs She did say that … LOL Girl Rachel needs to believe it so let it go.

              • Laughing hard cause its funny

                She did say that!!!! LOL no one would be starting show in april and then starting to show again in september LOL… Then on good morning america in that yellow have rock hard abs in August. Beynce normally does not address stuff that are lies. I do think she should let it go. Sorry Rachel she did several times give how many months she was interviews at different points.

  • NONEYA

    Good thing I dont get HBO!

  • Vee Mack

    This woman does not need your approval she does not have to prove anything to any of you. She is still Beyonce and you all are still taking about her. I would not show not one picture proving a pregnancy to anybody other than my husband.

    • Meyaka

      And there you have it, I love your comment!

    • yql

      She would be smart to hire you . you make more sense than she does. IT died down she started this mill back up. Its a private joy for her experience and that is all. Leave it alone both sides beyonce and people

  • lisa

    how about 8 months pregnancy belly with her full face and body…

  • http://www.facebook.com/nikia.dshiznit Nikia D-Shiznit

    I want to see FACE and BELLY at the same time.

    • TRUTH IS

      Why is she trying soo hard to convince the public is the question in my mind. Your belly should have been convincing enough. Clearly it didn’t. Sucks to be her!! To add insult to injury….she bought out the entire hospital unit to give birth. Who does that?!? They have enough money to buy a country. They think the populace is so daft!!

      • Rachel

        Maybe because she was really pregnant. No one can say for sure but her. Plus, there has never been proof that she really wasn’t pregnant. I know there are some things that looked suspicious, but at the end of the day it wasn’t real evidence. I think a lot of people don’t want to believe it because they like to think of themselves as being smarter than a celebrity. Many famous celebs have shut down a floor in the hospital when they were giving birth. Beyonce wasn’t the 1st to do that. I don’t think anyone should do that though.

  • Madeline

    Please get entirely OVER Bey and HER child. Thanks and God bless.

  • Mmm..No

    Never really been a Beyonce stan. I respect her music and all and especially her work ethic (you can’t deny the woman works hard), but never really been as engrossed in her music as many of her fans.

    I kind of doubt this documentary will be anymore revealing than the others she has attempted. And I personally think she doesn’t HAVE to go any further either. I remember one reason she gave for not opening up her personal life as much to the public was to maintain the ‘mystery’ that came with many artists back in the day, which I interpreted as separation of personal and professional life, and I agree. It’s nice to just focus on the music and acknowledge the fact that these artists are not gods they are human beings just like us prone to mistakes and such.

    If that’s how she wants to lead her professional life, she should have every right to. and if anything, her music ought to let you know what she’s been through or what she is currently going through. I think she has enough stans that can respect that decision and love her till the end. JMO.

    • kim

      you’rea stan without a doubt. nice why to put though….make us believe your just an outside and not really a her fan. this note screams “am defining my girl B”

      • Kaori

        Her comment was very sensible to me. But I see it now. One can only legitimately not be a fan unless they speak harshly about someone. That is just as stupid as someone saying that another person is a ‘fan in disguise’ because they clicked on the video of someone who they are not a fan of. How else will someone know they do not like something unless they have experienced it first?

        • http://twitter.com/alwaysmuah Ruthie

          exactly!!! smh

        • Meyaka

          It has been my experience that some people make these kind of comments,only later on to come back and show their true colors. I could be wrong,then again I really don’t give a F,this is for entertainment sake,laugh ,tease me back,it’s not that serious to me.

      • Toni

        I’ve never purchased 1 Beyonce album, I don’t really care for her, barely ever listen to her and I believe she was pregnant. Am I a stan too?

    • Meyaka

      I’ve been blogging long enough to recognize a beyonce fan when I see one. As for her working hard,the girl sings,dance,endorses products and is filthy rich,when I think of hard work scientist,doctors,chemists come to mind,not a woman who shakes her hips for a living

      • http://twitter.com/alwaysmuah Ruthie

        But why are you so salty though?…..What did Beyonce’ do to you? lmao

        • Meyaka

          Lmao I just love you people’s lingo “salty,pressed”. Beyonce didn’t do anything to me she is just a celebrity like every other and she will get subjected to my opinion if I want her to,the real question is “what does she do FOR you?”

          • Kaori

            Hahaha. Right. One can’t have a different opinion on these sites without being ‘bitter’, ‘pressed’, salty’, thirsty’, or whatever other popular slang word there is.

          • Ypq

            Meyaka you are not hating, bitter or jealous. Beyonce keeps saying she is so private she would save her self the drama and stop trying to prove things. She says she ignores but she still continues to prove things weirdly as you stated. I am from Houston, yes she a pretty girl and good job on the success. But I really do think she does contribute alot to the confusion and madness. Her fold in the dress I did not care about. Its the time frame. I am not crazy I was there watching her perform a few weeks before VMA she had rock hard abs. Then at vmas she looked about 5 to 6 months. Then December nothing changed but the padding. Then Jan 7 her baby was born. Then she carries the baby around in flats not the heels she wore when she was near labor… LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!! Get the hell out of here. She had a surrogate. And that is ok and I would understand her reason. Jay z gave it away in Glory she has hard time carrying a baby and miscarried. Anyone who is prone to miscarriage or who has experienced that would not have done the four concert when she was 2 months in April. She said that in the interview she was two months in that concert. Do the math nine months later is not January. So no you are not crazy. Beyonce created this because her story was not adding up and now she set on proving it to be so. There is no reason to release a documentary except to prove that. Please look at Katie Couric’s Face when she touched Beyonce’s tummy… Priceless.

            • Rachel

              Babies can also come few weeks earlier

              • casey

                the case is not it was too soon or early… YpQ said that clealry…being two months in April would put a due date in November maybe early December January is a month late. That is what did not add up to people.

            • http://www.yourtango.com/users/cheekee-baby cheekee baby

              You dedicated a lot of time deducing if anything occupied another woman’s uterus or not. If she says she was pregnant than she was. If she wanted to pull a stunt queen move and pretend to be pregnant while having a surrogate who gives a da*n? Frankly if she was that into fooling everyone surely she could have coordinated her story to match the surrogate’s pregnancy. I mean simple things like getting a quality fake pregnancy bump or two doesn’t seem something out reach for a woman of her means. I mean really.

    • monitorette

      So stealing songwriting rights for years is work ethics for you?

      • Rachel

        Beyonce co writes some of her songs. Please do research on songwriting credits.

        • monitorette

          Just like Ne Yo said about it, adding some ‘Yeahs’ and other few words is not songwritings.
          Oh, how I miss Aliyaah and her honesty

  • http://twitter.com/islam_voodoo Hasaan Kadaafi

    I’m still thinking about when her stomach folded during that interview

    • Meyaka

      Real talk lmaooooo

    • Kaori

      And then the explanation for it was even worse.

    • Amber

      That clearly wasn’t her stomach if she’s releasing proof. I always thought she wore some padding to exaggerate her size. I don’t know why tho. I always believed she had her own child.

    • Lauren Love

      That look in her gave when she look up like she was caught to the max. It said it all.

    • Cherry Coke

      And when she bent over to get into that SUV limo. :/

    • TRUTH IS

      She probably watches the video of her stomach folding over and over and says “CHIT” lol….colossal failure!!!

  • Na Na

    Ummmm just because I post a FB Profile pic with a hand with an engagement ring doesn’t mean my man went and put a ring on it! Just as this half body shot of a light skin pregnant woman doesn’t mean Beyonce gave birth to baby Blue.

    In the words of her husband….we don’t believe you , you need more people!

    • Amber

      OMG Are you serious?? I swear this girl could release a video of Blue coming out of her vagina and people would STILL not believe it. Some of you believe what YOU want to believe when it comes to this woman even if she put facts before you.

      • Meyaka

        Actually that would do it lmao

      • Laine

        Haha, I’m sorry but the half body shot also didn’t convince me. And what was that thing around her waist..? Something like a mark…Was I the only one that saw that…? I stopped the video at exactly 18 seconds to analyze it… LOL… haha.. I’m afraid a video of the so called birth won’t even do… She probably has enough money to “create” that!

        • Amber

          Haha @ your stupidity. This is just a teaser not the entire doc.

          • Laine

            Come one, we’re just having fun… ! Losen up…. haha

        • Trisha_B

          Beyonce always wear a chain type thing around her belly. If you look at past pics of her in bikini’s, you can see she’s wearing the chain. Rihanna wears a similar one too!…I do think she carried Blue and gave birth to the baby. But she just made things real weird lol. Like she has never had problems showing her body, but as soon as she get pregnant she gets all covered up. Then w/ this picture, it could be a pic after a good meal lol. It would shut a lot of people up if she did a pic where her belly is bigger & you could see her face. Maybe her documentary will show some stuff.

          • Kaori

            Even then the picture could just be photoshopped.

            • Rachel

              Or maybe she actually had her own baby? People always find an ecxuse

              • Kaori

                I provided another possible scenario, not an excuse.

          • http://www.facebook.com/jennifer.edia Jenn E. Penny

            I will say this, I dont care if the child didnt come out of Beyonce, but I didnt appreciate all the belly padding, because when she revealed she was pregnant at the VMA’s, she happened to only be about 4 months, but was sporting a belly that was at least 6 months along, I get it, you wanted to look more “pronounced” but it didnt help her case whatsoever, a week later she’s in croatia with a bump so small, you would get it after a hearty lunch, it was just very suspect, either way Bey is that childs mother and Jay is that childs father, the details dont matter

      • Ms_Mara

        Nah, a birthing video would be “edited and staged”. They’d find a way to discredit it. lol

        • Amber

          Your brain seems edited and staged.

          • Ms_Mara

            I guess you don’t get sarcasm. I was agreeing with you that no proof would satisfy certain people. smh

  • Meyaka

    Beyonce just likes her name in people’s mouth,she is a woman it’s normal for her to get pregnant but she handles things so weirdly that controversy becomes her,everyone else was pregnant and showing accordingly,her belly deflated on national tv,grew and retracted within days,it was just too much …

    • Na Na

      Lol, yes girl and after all that to turn around and post a half pic with no face doesn’t do anything to help your credibility!

      • Meyaka

        Okay?!

    • Kitsy

      She continues to handle things weirdly. Most celebrities proudly show-off their babies (think Jessica Simpson, Nick & Mariah – damn near everybody), yet Beyonce has only released pics of the back of Blu’s head and far-away blurry shots of her face. When they take her out in public they cover her up in blankets. I can’t think of another celebrity who’s behaved that way. What’s up with that? Either show her off or don’t! Again, weird!

      • Kaori

        “When they take her out in public they cover her up in blankets. I can’t think of another celebrity who’s behaved that way.”

        Michael Jackson.

        • Kitsy

          True…and if I were Jay-Z or Beyonce I wouldn’t want to be in that association.

      • http://www.yourtango.com/users/cheekee-baby cheekee baby

        She’s a public figure, maybe she doesn’t feel she has the right to impose that type of notoriety on her child. You know let Blue (I can’t with that name) make the choice if she wants to be famous or not. I think its smart actually . . . .

  • Kaori

    I still don’t think she was ever pregnant.

    • Meyaka

      Not even her deranged fans believe her lol

      • Guest

        Meyaka, you’re not qualified to call anyone deranged after still believing Beyonce didn’t have her baby when she released proof. Why don’t the 2 of you provide actual proof that she was never pregnant? I’m talking about REAL proof and not that video of her in a red dress because nobody knows what was underneath.

        • Fiedah

          Dang, it should not be that serious for you, boo!

          • Guest

            It shouldn’t be that serious for you and the 2 of them. How do you accuse someone of lying about their pregnancy without solid proof. There are bikini pics of Beyonce early on and bikini pics of her when she was well into her pregnancy. This video too where you see her growing bump and people still question it and call someone else deranged? The stupidity is real.

            • Meyaka

              The stupidity is indeed real,btw I saw how you avoided the whole deflating belly argument,hihihi love it!!!!

              • Rachel

                The stupidity on YOUR part is real. How can you know it was her belly? How are you sure it wasn’t something else padding maybe? Did you lift up her dress and look underneath? People get on blogs and try to act smart like they really know what was under this woman’s dress. Sheesh

                • Meyaka

                  Girl it’s not that serious,she wasn’t pregnant ,she’s a liar and you’re a broke fool who believes anything anyone with money says,next!

            • Fiedah

              Okay, okay, don’t cry boo!

            • Na Na

              Is this Solange?

        • Kaori

          I don’t need to provide proof. I didn’t say that she was never pregnant. I said that I don’t THINK she was.

        • Meyaka

          Lmao how emotional,you are not going to cry are you? girl I saw her belly deflate on national television ,that FACT qualifies me to call her and your likes DERANGED

          • Rachel

            There is NO fact that was her belly. Who knows what she had under her dress.

  • JaneDoe

    Still waiting on the full body shot before I believe that Beyonce carried and birth that child.

    • Just saying!!

      I actually believe she carried the child, but it would have been nice if she included and ull body shot and not just a belly lol.

      • Guest

        I think there’s more of her pregnancy, which I believe she was indeed pregnant, that she will reveal in this documentary. Beyonce’s had camera men follow her around and filming her for years.

        • Kitsy

          “Beyonce’s had camera men follow her around and filming her for years.”

          Which is exactly why people have a hard time believing in this pregnancy. She is one of the most photographed people in the world, and not one photog noticed anything different, especially considering the voracious “Baby Bump Watch” of every celebrity magazine that the paparazzi sell photos to – a pic that captured her growing waistline would have made a photographer’s fortune. I’m not saying she was never pregnant, I’m just sayin’…
