Was is just the mother of all baby rumors?
Beyoncé bumpwatch once again went into hyperdrive yesterday with sources seemingly confirming that she and hubby Jay-Z were expecting hip-hop's second coming.
Well, guess what? Just like the last time, and the time before that (and the time before that), the Bootylicious one doesn't have a bun in the oven.
Or so says her protective mama Tina Knowles in a sit-down with Ellen DeGeneres airing later today.
"Let's clear it up," Ellen tells Tina, who is not on the show simply to discuss her daughter's fertility, but to promote her new clothing line, Miss Tina (which, incidentally, B her svelte self helped promote two weeks ago).
"The rumors are that Beyonce is pregnant. Are you going to be a grandmother again?"
"I heard that, but I'm here to clear the rumors up," Knowles said. "The truth is that it's not Beyonce that's pregnant. It's me."
Um, take that, Matthew?
"I'm kidding, y'all. I'm 56. No, no it's not true. Not right now…With all the rumors by now I should have five or six grandchildren."
The future of music should be so lucky.
