She Just Thought You Should Know: Beyonce Opens Up About Pregnancy, Miscarriage & ‘That’ Pregnancy Rumor

Before you all get mad at me, let me point out that “Bey season” has officially begun and there will likely be a rise in talks about Beyonce. Just bare with us, okay? This is entertainment news and Bey is…an entertainer. Still mad at me? Well, I tried. Let’s move on!

We’re starting to hear more and more about Beyonce’s documentary Life Is But A Dream which will premiere in February on HBO.  USA Today was able to get an advanced screening and apparently, Bey decided to be extremely candid when speaking about pregnancy. By now, most of us have seen the trailer for the doc and know that we get a quick glimpse of her belly in the very early stages of her pregnancy with now one year old Blue Ivy.

But it goes deeper than that. She speaks on her miscarriage and how one week there was a heartbeat and the next week, she heard nothing.  If you recall, we first learned about the Carters’ miscarriage on Jay-Z’s song dedicated to Blue, “Glory.” Beyonce says the studio became an outlet for her to deal with the loss.

Oh and about that rumor that she didn’t actually have a baby? Here’s what Bey had to say:

“There’s a stupid rumor. The most ridiculous rumor I think I’ve ever had about me. It’s crazy. To think I would be that vain – I respect mothers and women so much and to be able to experience bringing a child into this world, if you’re lucky and fortunate enough to experience that, I would never, ever take that for granted. It’s the most powerful thing you can do. Especially after losing a child, the pain and trauma from that just makes it mean so much more to get an opportunity to bring life into the world. It seems like people should have boundaries.”

I’m sure this does nothing for those of you who believe she didn’t carry Blue but she’s finally addressed it directly.

It’ll be interesting to see what else she has to say or share because as we learned in the GQ interview, she is filmed 16 hours a day.  As much as people may love her, the struggle in her fame is that people still don’t feel like they know her and I’m not exactly sure the filming schedule will make her seem more believable. Still, there’s got to be something in all that footage that makes her feel more relatable, right?

Life Is But A Dream premieres on HBO on February 16th at 9pm.

    You’re right, I don’t believe her. She is way too much of an exhibitionist to not have shown her nine month belly a la Demi Moore, Nia Long, etc. As for those of you who state for a fact that she was pregnant, you don’t know either. She lies and she will never come clean to the general public – she’s in too deep. The whole thing was just too sketchy.

  • AfricanBambi

    Leave beyonce alone people n let her live…ppl find reasons to hate people n that to me is disgusting. The whole scenario about her not carrying her child is disgusting to me too. Let that woman be…geez.

  • Monie

    I am by NO means a Beyonce stan and I use the term fan very loosly lol. She is an incredible artist and an EXCELLENT performer, yes…actress, she is NOT and the wack 9 months she pretended to be preggo was just bad. I never thought she faked carrying Blue so she wouldn’t mess up her body, I just think she maybe can’t carry full term or maybe she had problems even concieving the first one & after losing it she didn’t wanna try anymore. People need to realize that even though she’s a mega star, she’s a woman, person & human with feelings just like us. Think about it, we never even knew she was preggo & lost a baby, she kept the show rolling and didn’t disappoint her fans all the while probably hurting inside.

    • TRUTH IS

      And if thats the case and she expressed it she would have been surprised how sympathetic most of the public would have been towards her and her situation.

      • Monie

        But why does she have to tell the public? Then EVERYBODY was going to be watching her even harder and she wouldn’t have had any time to grieve for her, Jay and the baby? Though I agree, she would have gotten MAJOR support and love from everyone, thats a very private time.

  • yeppers

    I really hope she doesnt start feeling the need to answer rumors and hearsay….ITs a sad day when a Grown woman has to explain to other GROWN PEOPLE…..about what went on in HER BODY…Why would she ever owe strangers an explanation of what came or didnt come out of her p….Y. ??? ILL DEFINITELY WAIT.

    • Kenedy

      Because she needs to sell albums? & perfume & clothes & pepsi & for people to watch the documentary

      • yeppers

        LAst time I checked her music and entertainment was SUPPOSED to do that….You need to know what came out of a womans p…y to know you need to buy her record and perfume???? O OK…Tell me somethin then. She need to just stop releasing albums then and release videos of her p…y every few months so weirdos like you can feel like she relates to you.

        And all of the stuff you just mentioned are given to her because she was BEYONCE (the talent)…not what goes on in or out of her kitty. So how you sound acting like she needs to show that to sell it. Spoken like a true hater.

        • Kenedy

          I was simply implying that entertainers personalizing themselves & opening up to the public aka reaching out or letting us in, whatever you wanna call it, at the end of the day, is a marketing ploy, because they believe the more we can relate to them on a personal level, the more likely we are to purchase the products they are trying to sell….this is much deeper than that, it has nothing to do with her vagina, lol. Calm down before you have a heart attack

          • Calikush

            BOOM!!!!!!! Totally agree!

    • Kenedy

      Because she needs to sell albums? & perfume & clothes & pepsi & for people to watch the documentary

    Wow, really? Did whoever runs this site come into your office with a shotgun and an iPad? If you don’t want to write about Beyonce, then don’t write about Beyonce. I’m sure her career will be just fine without any mentions from Madame Noire, and her fans would rather read articles written by someone who isn’t writing them against her will.
    BTW, as someone who came of age in an era when celebs valued their privacy, I’m glad Beyonce keeps a lot of her personal life to herself. Know what I know about Prince? He’s from Minnesota. That’s all I know about him personally, and it doesn’t stop me from being a fan. Likewise, not knowing what Beyonce eats for dinner every night or how many times per week she and Jay-Z get it in doesn’t stop me from being a fan of hers.

  • TRUTH IS

    Have a seat; any seat!!

  • Star_studded

    This whole “secret life” is nobody’s doing but Jay Z. The moment she fell in love with him is when everything about her became a secret. I knew it was bad when she thanked him at the some awards show as her husband, and his expression was like: Wtf you say that for?! It’s like he’s brainwashed her into adopting his mentality or something. Maybe she’s not an independent thinker; I don’t know. But since she has now been living such a “secret life” all of these years, it makes me wonder…why now? Why do you suddenly feel the need to be more open? I really just don’t feel like this is the real her. Will the REAL Beyonce pleae stand up? Just my thoughts…

    • JaneDoe

      Because being open has worked for some artist very well and its a new avenue for her to remain on top.. It’s a marketing ploy. Once her album is out an she has nothing to promote it back to being private

    • mac

      maybe because the public became more interested in her personal life after the relationship started. That doesn’t prove it was Jay’s doing.

    • Monie

      Eh, I can see why you’d say that but I don’t really agree 100%. All the privacy stuff did start after she got with Jay but she it’s not like she was an open book before then. I mean, she got wit Jay when she was 19-20ish, DC came out when she was 17, so she was really only in the public eye for a couple of years and the fame was more on DC at that time. She hadn’t become BEYONCE then lol. Plus, you hear other celebs say that everything about them is so public that they want to keep whatever they can private and a relationship thats important to you ain’t (yes, ain’t lol) nobody’s business.

      I do agree this isn’t the real her and she just needs to be, Bey.

  • momo

    I Love BEYONCE! Can’t wait for the superbowl next sunday :) LOVE LOVE LOVE her.

  • Kelsey

    I think she should continue to focus on making those hits and don’t bother with the personal stuff. It’s not her

  • Meyaka

    Girl…. “Make that money girl!!!!!” …

  • Very-vocal

    why should people know her? so they can rip and tear her apart more than they do already? the people that should know her are her family and close friends. same goes for every entertainer out there. no one is yelling for actors/actresses to “connect” with the people so why do fans treat entertainers differently??

    • SheBe

      Because they place them on this pedestal and lose focus of their real purpose; they are entertainers. Their job is to entertain. Once the camera stops rolling or last tune is played their “job” is done. A sick and sad expectation has been placed on entertainers to allow people inside their world beyond even the most basic boundaries. The entertainer then ends up in a damned if you do damned if you don’t situation. Some make their bed on their own. Others are made for them.

    LOVE Bey! There will always be the naysayers, but I’m sure she’s used to it by now, folks have been throwing shade her way for years! Can’t wait to watch!! HBO keep a good series/documentary :-)

  • bluekissess

    For some reason I don’t care to watch. She will be candid but then again she won’t be. I’m over it

  • s.stovall

    Leave the woman alone! When did it become everyone’s business!? Sheesh that is all.

  • blessed

    People should have boundaries. A miscarriage is something that scars you for life.

    • Kelsey

      I agree. I work at an infertility medical center and its so hard to even call a pt to schedule a D&C after the loss. It’s something most ppl avoid even when they have to talk about. It’s that touchy. But anyhoo I’m stop right there
