Beyonce joyfully announced she and husband Jay-Z are expecting at Sunday night’s Video Music Awards by striking a baby-bump pose on the red carpet and then later displaying her lovely roundness at the end of her performance.
Dad-to-be Jay-Z could hardly contain himself. The camera showed him smiling and cheering his beautiful wife.
Mr. and Mrs. Shawn Carter have been married since 2008 and preggo rumors have popped up now and again over since. This one is true! What wonderful news.
Beyonce’s baby bump was one of the show’s top highlights, along with a moving performance by Adele and a high-flying number by Chris Brown.
“Chris Brown should teach a Zumba class,” tweeted Atlanta’s LaTonya Story. Ha!
Lady Gaga, in a stark departure from the Egg-mobile and meat dress years, showed up dressed like a street punk. She kept the outfit and persona throughout the show, and made lecherous googly eyes at Britney Spears during Spears’ award presentation. Brit looked a little creeped out to me.
Sometimes Atlanta resident Justin Bieber was featured just briefly, sporting a new, more serious look. Nicki Minaj sported a colorful wig and a costume with all sorts of doo-dads hanging off it and carried this stuffed animal around. She sort of looked like a walking garage sale.
The night’s emotional highlight was a tribute to the late Amy Winehouse. Katy Perry’s husband Russell Brand spoke candidly about alcoholism.
“A lot of people just get the disease,” he said. “Let’s remember there is a solution … that solution is available.”
