Beyonce made a HUGE announcement while walking the red carpet of the MTV Music Video Music Awards tonight. She grabbed her stomach while telling the paparazzi that she and Jay are expecting. MTV Tweeted:
“OMG Beyonce just made a huge announcement on the #vma carpet! #baby!!!!!”
She also confirmed her pregnancy while performing during the show. Before she started singing ‘Love on Top Of Me’, she said to the audience, ‘I Want You To Feel The Love That’s Growing Inside Of Me’.

She worked it out with colorful luggge, even more colorful platform shoes, and an attention grabbing outfit at this old abandoned motel. Apparently she wants to re-invent herself for her upcoming LP and has recently enlisted London Producer Dave Taylor, aka Switch to produce some of the project. She told MTV last year: (more…)
Lord knows I love me some Lady Gaga, but this shit right here… I just can’t. Somehow, Gaga and her stylist thought that it would be just fabulous if she wore meat, and I mean right down to the shoes. I can’t imagine the torture the person who sat next to her went through. I hate cutting up meat let alone wearing it! In true Gaga style, she spoke to Ellen DeGeneres and went as far as trying to convince us why wearing meat makes sense: (more…)
