Beyonce Shows Off Baby Bump at VMAs

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.”

Did you watch the awards show? What were your favorite moments?

Hopefully the baby bump, and later baby, will stop all the ever-burlesque bump-and-grind. Congrats to her…now put some clothes on. Hope the baby will be healthy. Congrats again.

She is not a has been. Beyonce is an amazing performer, has had every album go number one, and did a classy performance last night reminiscent of days past.

Bruno Mars’ performance of Amy Winehouse’s song was really good. He also kept it classy.

We don’t have a choice but to look at her as her trashy mug is plastered all over this website on an almost daily basis. She is a no talent, auto-tuned publicity wh#r*!

Even if the baby is a boy he better hope he doesn’t look like his dad. Scary

“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.”

Barf. As if anyone should care that these two booty-shaking has-beens have produced an unfortunate spawn. I’m sure there will be cameras in the delivery room and Mrs. Carter (with pinky up) will have full pancake makeup covering her zit-filled face. Mr. Carter will be toasting with VSOP in the waiting room with his homeys. Barf.

Yack!

I’m sure he has about 20 kids sown around the country with equally vile baby mommas.

Yack, why are you so negative? Didn’t your mother teach you that if you didn’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything at all.

Personally I love Beyonce’ and Jay-Z and wish them much happiness as they expand their family.

First, if you don’t like someone you’re not a Hater! People kill me with that. As for Beyonce, I am a fan of her performances and wish her nothing but happiness. I don’t get the hoopla about her being pregnant, but that’s the world of entertainment. I didn’t watch the show, I read it on Facebook.

As for Jay-Z, he doesn’t have any kids. This will be his first so please stop posting false rumors.

I don’t know why everyone pays attention to Yack. After all this site is the only adult communication he has with anyone. This is the same hick who is about 50 years old living with is momma because he’s so fat he can’t get out of bed. So he waits for things to be posted on this site just so he can add his negative opinion and get everyone all excited. Ignore this no life troll.

You and me both Justin. I have given up wondering why people click on a blog to basically complain that it is there. (There’s lots of other stuff on the Internets, you know?)

WoW! Some of you people are wierdos. It’s scary to see what some people will say and do when they can remain anonymous. Why would you read “The Buzz” if you hate celebrities? That is what it is about. I suggest that when you see an article about someone that you hate, do not read the article or look at the photos!

Misery loves company….and it is obvious that many of these bloggers are, in fact, MISERABLE! They hate their reality and therefore hate anyone else for exhibiting even an ounce of confidence and/or happiness!

PATHETIC!!

Congratulations to Beyoncé. I’m a new mother myself and I highly recommend having children. My hips are bigger…my breasts are bigger. I’m loving it! I feel like more of a woman now. It definitely makes me feel so much sexier than ever before.

Jarvis yes if Squiggy was a chain-smoker with boundary issues and anger management problems. Maybe it was all rehearsed but it seemed like Britney’s moment was hijacked by Gaga’s antics.

If you don’t like any of the artists or the show for that matter….why are you on here? You have no life obviously because everyone who performed have mega album sales. Jay-Z is a has been, yet he just dropped one of the best albums of 2011?? You guys are so inconsiderate. Like for real…grow up and get some class instead of bashing people who accomplished things you could never dream of.
