Beyonce just can’t seem to evade those pesky fake pregnancy rumors. In her new video for the single “Party,” the 30-year-old expectant mom prances about in mini shorts, low-cut swimsuits, and loose-fitting tanks. And although some women don’t “pop” until the second trimester, it’s worth noting that this video with J.Cole was filmed in August — right before debuting her big baby bump at the VMAs.
Camera angles, careful positioning, and strategic wardrobe could all be factors here. But considering how far along the singer was by this point, coupled with that TV interview where her stomach visibly collapsed, it all reads a bit odd. Whether Beyonce is choosing a surrogate or enhancing her bump for appearances, she continues to keep us guessing.
Watch for Beyonce’s 25-year-old sister Solange at the DJ table, and even a little cameo from Destiny’s Child bandmate, Kelly Rowland.
