    @meme, everyone knows they are just opening acts for Beyonce. #letsbereal Beyonce is in the legendary lane. Rihanna is ok(saw her in concert), Gaga is ok, Katy is ok, but Beyonce is a legend! Who am I kidding Beyonce’ will run the world while having being pregant. “Boy you know they love it how we smart enough to make these millions, strong enough to bare the children…then get back to business!” -Beyonce

    @Real Issh, again, stop saying that. I don’t know what kind of upbringing you guys have had, but how are you going to post comments full of hate like that, when Beyoncé just announced that she’s pregnant? Why can’t y’all be happy for her and just let it be?
    This is not the place, nor the time, to start your useless discussions. It’s disgusting.

    DrakoDramatik Reply:

    @Lisa, wait why are you speaking to Real Issh? when he was defending someone who was hating on bey in the first place?

    [Reply]

    Lisa Reply:

    @DrakoDramatik, telling someone to kill themselves is not defending your artist. That’s showing your lack of intelligence and class. However, my comment wasn’t solely directed at her. It was directed at everyone who was feeding into the negativity, when this should be a post to celebrate. Not going back and forth, saying the same-old, same-old again.

    @Real Issh,

    Hatred kills the hater…Real Issh, you’ve got a lot of hatred in your heart because you’re always telling people to kill themselves.

    I am SOOOOOOOOO glad that beyonce isn’t as hurtful, disgusting, and inconsiderate to other people as you are. I’m sure she would’nt want to meet a person like you…so do her a favor and stay behind the mask of your name Real Issh. I pray God fills your heart with love.

    @me, everyone reacts differently. I didn’t cry, but Beyoncé has some very, very dedicated fans. I can see that when your life revolves around your idol, you feel so connected to them, to the point where you’ll cry when their life is about to change drastically. I thought your comment was offensive. This should be a post full of love and support for Beyoncé. Not to post comments that will only cause for more negativity. Be happy for her, or don’t post anything at all.

    oh by the way, she looks great

    I’m just at a loss… How did her stomach get so big, so fast? I know she wore clothes that covered her stomach up, but for her GMA performance she wore a dress that showed her stomach for the most part and it was FLAT. That wasn’t too long ago. Never knew that a pregnant woman’s belly grows so fast.

    @DaDonRoMaN, but I do want her and Jay-Z to take a good amount of time out to enjoy their new addition to the family. When they’re little, they change with every hour. I don’t want them to miss out on that. I love Beyoncé, but she deserves to be granted the time to build a life with her husband and their child.

    Congrats to Beyonce, she will be a wonderful mother….. hopes she will balance being a wife, singer, actress, fashion designer, and mother good, I’m certain, but I hope she doesn’t get too tired to not be doing what she does…. also, hope she continues singing after da baby is born and hope she doesn’t be like one of my favorite female singers, Alicia Keys, she hasn’t had a cd out since she had baby Egypt….. which I’m still waiting to see wheather or not will she release another cd out soon, I know she has a song out dedicated to her son but I just wanna know if she will go back in the studio sometime soon….. so for Beyonce, if 4 will be your last cd for a minute, we will understand, but don’t stay away from the studio long. It will be so ironic if the baby is born on the fourth, I mean Beyonce’s birthday is on the fourth, I think Jay’s birthday is on the fourth too, and their wedding anniversary is on the fourth. But, again Congrats to Bey.

But this is a great time for her to be a mother. Not to mention, I think this is one of Beyonce’s most beautiful and classy red carpet looks EVER. She looks so damn happy. Who run the world?
