Beyonce has released her new video for "Love on Top" -- but something is missing. Yes, that much-watched baby bump, which featured prominently in her last video for "Countdown," is notably absent. Watch the video below, and see if you can detect her pregnancy under those sexy tuxedos!
Obviously, the "Love on Top" video must have been shot before Beyonce announced her pregnancy (which was, ironically, during a performance of "Love on Top" at the MTV VMAs). If she was showing at all when they shot the video, then the magic of cinema hides it well.
But the video's odd timing won't do anything to stop the speculation that Beyonce is wearing a fake belly, a rumor that exploded after her midsection appeared to show an odd fold during a recent on-camera interview. Though Beyonce has been enthusiastic about her pregnancy curves, conspiracy theorists believe she's padding her belly, or even secretly having a baby via surrogate.
Beyonce's rep has called the fake-bump rumor "stupid, ridiculous and false," while Beyonce has refuted it in her own way: walking around New York City in a form-fitting dress that clearly shows her growing belly. Her baby with Jay-Z is due (for real) in February.
