This is a day late and a dollar short, but Beyonce managed to steal Lady Gaga’s Jo Calderone thunder by announcing she was three months’ pregnant with husband Jay-Z’s first child at the MTV Video Music Awards this past Sunday. Thankfully, I didn’t have to watch the VMAs because Hurricane Irene knocked out all the power, so it’s probably best that I just nod approvingly and pretend I know what’s going on from here on out. Us Magazine says:
Radiant in D&G pants and a sequined top, Beyonce began her song “Love on Top” with a rousing invitation to the audience: “Tonight, I want you to stand up on your feet — I want you to feel the love that’s growing inside me!”
Once her showstopping, energetic song was done, the superstar, 29, then unbuttoned her jacket, rubbed her belly, and flashed a giant smile. In the audience, cameras showed hubby Jay-Z beaming ear-to-ear as pal Kanye West congratulated him.
It will be the first child for Beyonce and Jay-Z (real name: Shawn Carter), 41, who wed in April 2008.
So Beyonce’s belly beat out Lady Gaga’s tuck for headlines, and you know how Lady Gaga has to be the center of attention at any show she attends (see here, here, here and here, for starters). I bet that really stuck in ol’ Gaga’s craw. And for the record, “ol’ Gaga’s craw” just made #3 on my list of “The Top Ten Things I Never Want to See as Long as I Live,” followed closely by “Charlie Sheen’s anal warts” and “The Cleveland Show.”
