Beyonce is not pregnant, says Jay-Z

Is she or isn't she? Jay-Z says no, and the rest of the world is saying yes. Either way, Beyonce's getting a ton of publicity from this latest pregnancy rumour.

I can't believe I'm still giving this story the time of day (again!). While I have nothing against her personally, I am not a fan of Beyonce, and I feel like I'm giving her exactly what she wants by writing yet another story about second-pregnancy rumours — when she just so happens to be on tour.

Sorry, Beyonce. I respect what you do and wish you all the best, whether this rumour is true or not. You're undoubtedly extremely talented. But I find myself wishing you were a bit more real, and wishing you'd use your powers for more good, less bling and self-promotion.

Seriously, nothing personal. Like anything I say about celebs, this is just based on my perception of her brand. In other words, then, I'm not a fan of Beyonce's brand.

In the meantime, I'm guessing Beyonce, 31, and her people are loving these pregnancy rumours — especially because no one's particularly calling her fat... they've only really called her curiously covered. And, as is the case for most celebrities, pregnancy rumours bring major publicity. So she's reveling in it, taking in the fame.

And now, her hubby Jay-Z, 43, is adding a whoosh to this rumour mill. Yesterday, he reportedly sent an email to NYC's big hip-hop radio station, Hot 97, debunking the rumour. "The pregnancy rumor is false," he wrote, according to Ebro Darden, the station's program director. Us Weekly Magazine further confirmed the validity of the email.

So, there you have it. I'm neither-here-nor-there with this. I'm soooo happy to let this lie until there's an official statement. All this speculation is too much!
