This year[lastfm link_type="artist_info"] Beyonce[/lastfm] kept her loves under wrap until it was the perfect moment to display her “Love on Top.”
The former [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Destiny’s Child[/lastfm] front woman had a great year all around. She released her album, 4, and put out a squadron of music videos to accompany the milestone album. Her most engaging would have to be her girl power anthem “Run The World (Girls),” which showed off Beyonce’s dancing skills and commanding stage presence. Basically, if you saw her perform it live or in the video, you could tell who really ran the world and her name started with a Bey!
[photogallerylink id=119911 align=right]But Beyonce’s biggest news of the year had to be her announcing that her and husband of 10 years, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Jay-Z[/lastfm] were expecting their first child. The Houstonian told the world on the stage of this year’s MTV Video Music Awards in a gesture that was clear to all that watched. In the midst of her “Love On Top” performace at the awards show, she unbuttoned her jacket and rubbed her noticeable tummy bump. The smile on her face and glow in her cheeks said everything that we needed to know.
We should have known that it wouldn’t slow her down one bit. Bey performed intimate shows of her entire 4 album as well as her more known hits on the stage of the Roseland Ballroom in New York and made sure to film and release a DVD of the experience so all her fans from everywhere could share those moments with her.
Other than some pesky legal troubles involving a video game company and some Miami real estate headache, Queen Bey must feel on top of the world. She’s been asked about everything in regards to her pregnancy from her vegan diet to pregnancy cravings and whether or not she plans on riffing with her baby to be. Being the gracious woman that she is, she took on each question eloquently no matter how many times she had been asked already.
While there is still a little uncertainty about the baby’s gender, best friend and former band mate[lastfm link_type="artist_info"] Kelly Rowland[/lastfm] spilled the beans about Bey and Jay spoiling their “little girl” and since then the speculation hasn’t stopped. But the First couple in Hip Hop are keeping their lips sealed.
By our count, their baby should be here any day now. And that’s just plain awesome! We wish them the very best!
