Beyonce's Baby Bump Performance: Look at the Joy! (Video)
I've been so busy that I haven't had time to keep up with what's been happening around me and afar, except for the marsh fire in New Orleans, but I did hear all the Twitterverse and blogosphere buzz over Beyonce's baby bump at the VMA awards Sunday night. When I got a moment to breathe, I tracked down video of her performing "Love On Top."
Yes, in the video, the bump is obvious even under the shiny jacket, but her performance is so strong that I was not focused on the little bulge. However, I can see why her many fans probably watched every inch of her move given that the pregnancy was announced pre-show. She opened her performance with a reference to the baby, saying that love had been born inside her, and then, striding through the glare of bright lights obscuring her image at times, she launched into the song.
I won't spoil your watching the video by saying much more, but I will add that what happened at the end of the song with the other celebrities jumping around on the sidelines, including her husband Jay-Z, Kanye West, and Lady Gaga, was the highlight of the segment. According to the Washington Post, the announcement was the most memorable part of the evening.
