Beyoncé Performs ‘Countdown’ on ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’ [Video]

Beyoncé

Beyoncé was back on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” for the second time. Backed by The Roots, Queen B nailed her performance of “Countdown,” looking gorgeous in a little black dress. If you’re wondering why she doesn’t look pregnant, that’s because the appearance was taped in July before she announced her pregnancy.

    @Beystanbish, O get outta here wit day, she is claiming now that she is due in dec, if thats the case she should have had a belly even then on this vid. And if she had that big round belly on the Mtv Vma’s and that was recorded in august then why dont she have a belly right here in July? Dont sound right, i was born at nite but damn sure not last nite!

    First of all, she’s pregnant. She’s fatter than your mother when she was preggo. Because she’s carrying the next worldwide star.
    Second, this perfomance was recorded in July, when your lonely life don’t even know she was pregnant. It was aired last night. So shut up if your words have no sense.

    I love how most of these commment “gave” more “life” to B’s haters than to B herself.

    Way to “adult” the situation stans. I’ll say it again so that maybe the redundancy in my comments will some day stick to those brain cells…the more YOU talk about it (the haters), THE MORE YOU VALIDATE IT (the haters)! Is it really that hard to understand?

    You can’t fight ignorance and anger with more ignorance and anger. You need a force to cancel it out…ya know, positivity? In other words, those comments talkin’ about other people’s favs are pointless because YOU’RE HATING TOO! Hypocrisy just makes you look ignorant.

    Again, you don’t neet to throw shade on another artist to give props to B…do you really think B needs it? That’s sad. You call yourself a stan and you feel you need to do this to keep people from throwin’ shade. Please, if you can’t get a clue, buy one!

    Remember their hating ain’t gon move B from her status and ya’ll givin’ them full-blown credit on posts givin light to Beyonce’s success ain’t gon make them go away either.

    Just accept the sour with the sweet…and move on. She don’t give a hell about ‘em, so why do you?

    [Reply]

    ONCEINALIFTETIME Reply:

    @Audrey Hepburn, How is that desperate?It’s a single NOW not then when she performed it and since she isn’t able or doesn’t want to perform while 6 months PREGNANT she pre-recorded her promotional material before hand. What sense would it have made to air this when her focus was on BTIH which was the current single? You idiots look for any reason to say something negative even if it is retarded.

    [Reply]

    Audrey Hepburn Reply:

    @ONCEINALIFTETIME, That’s why you don’t get pregnant before you’re about to release an album. She knew well before hand that she wouldn’t be able to give 100% on this project, so why give a bunch of mediocre filler? As many know, I am not a Bey fan but what I have to say is strictly objective. It IS just an addition to her desperate decisions which include performing on satellites to honor legends, being secretive about the status of her pregnancy when she threw it up in our faces at an award show, and coping others material WITHOUT THEIR CONSENT.

    [Reply]

    ONCEINALIFTETIME Reply:

    @Audrey Hepburn, It’s not that simple. She got pregnant in July by that time checks where cut material was ready and her record company was ready. She had obligations and contracts to fulfill LEGALLY pregnant or not SO like many pregnant women with careers you plan everything out. She pre-recorded all of her promotional material planned her announcement date and now she can do everything she needs to do from the comfort of her office and follow Jay on the watch the throne tour and make little appearances here and there at events. That’s SMART and that’s how someone with business savvy thinks. She didn’t have to stop anything because she was pregnant! Why? When she can get a check all while sitting on her ass the entire time. That’s how you keep a brand going while enjoying your pregnancy.Also she announced her pregnancy because face it a growing stomach fat face and all the other symptoms is not something that can be hid. People where going to notice it. Nothing was wrong with her sharing it with us the way she did seeing as how she didn’t have to do it at all and a pregnancy is a beautiful thing and like most expecting mothers they love sharing the news. Had she done it differently most of you would have found another excuses or reason as to how she’s a bad person for not sharing it. You are acting like she is not human. She is excited just like any other parent to be. Lastly you’re just looking for excuse to call her desperate which in the end makes you exactly like that. Know people including myself who work show in business. Nothing she is doing is desperate it called professionalism and business.

    ONCEINALIFTETIME Reply:

    @ONCEINALIFTETIME, Also just because she told us she was pregnant doesn’t mean she has to tell us every time the baby switches positions in her damn stomach! We don’t need to know all that. She can share what she she wants to. AGAIN if she was talking about her pregnancy and every moment of it people would be accusing her of milking her pregnancy for press. Something a lot of other celebrities do and as far as her copying people. Until I hear they crying about it I don’t understand why you are!

    [Reply]

    Audrey Hepburn Reply:

    @ONCEINALIFTETIME, Like I said earlier, I am not a fan so I really don’t care to see her material anyway. Maybe I’m just biased. However, I don’t respect the covering of of b*llsh*t. I respect authenticity and clearly there has been some fraudulence in this situation. If the above performance was in July, then why was her stomach big less than a month later at the VMA’S in August? To make it even more simple, there have been hundreds of top female actresses, singers, etc that have given birth and there hasn’t been this amount of controversy surrounding their pregnancies. No one has ever questioned if a female celebrity was actually pregnant AFTER she made the announcement herself. In addition, wearing 5 inch heels and tight clothing while “pregnant” (which was recent) and flying all over the country to “support” her man is not ideal for an unborn child. So I advise you and others on here to KEEP IT REAL & stop attempting to defense this woman.

    ONCEINALIFTETIME Reply:

    @ONCEINALIFTETIME, Do you really think she doesn’t have a dream team of professional Doctors on her pay roll who she consults with over everything? I wouldn’t be surprised if she had on call doctor who travels with her. She is not doing anything she doesn’t feel comfortable with or was told not to do. Where were you when A keys was on tour pregnant performing in heels and busting her ass on stage? What about Maraih who wore heels even while pregnant with twins? Lets not get started on Victoria Beckham who probably wore heels in the delivery room or how about Jessica Simpson who is pregnant and currently rocking the hell out of her heels and tight clothing to? Better yet what about the millions of everyday pregnant women who wear them? Not everybody is the same carries the same or has the same discomforts. Maybe you unaware of this but you wear what you want and what is comfortable on you. Pregnant or not. I’m explaining this not just to defend her but because it’s common sense(no pun intended) and from July to the END of august is more than enough time to grow a bump depending on the position the baby is in and how fast your body personally grows. Some women get huge fast some don’t get huge at all. She actually big for 6 months to me. Let me get this right though you have the right to be bias about her but I don’t have the right to state factual comments in her defensive? And you’re telling me to keep it real? Naw I think you need to rethink that one!

    ONCEINALIFTETIME Reply:

    @aubrey also that is your opinion on her artistically.I don’t put high expectations on any artist simply because nobody can be perfect. What she lacks in creativity she makes up for in other areas. She can’t do it all and shouldn’t be expected to and a lot thing she is accused of stealing imo is blown out of portion by those who like to be bias about everything she does. In the end if you like artistically developed artist than go support them instead of complaining about one who isn’t. Not everything is for everyone that’s life that’s normal that’s to be expected.

    ONCEINALIFTETIME Reply:

    @ONCEINALIFTETIME, @aubrey forgot to add that People don’t care about other celebs pregnancy because they haven’t been obsessing over their uterus or personal life their whole careers! If their is something beyonce and MJ have in common it’s that people want to know all of their business because they built “perfect images”. People are and will always be intrigued by what they don’t know and want to know. You can’t deny that throughout her whole 15 year career she has only had 3 big scandals. We don’t know the real her and that will always keep her relevant because people want to know. She has build a bullet proof image. One that makes people want to find dirt on her and one that makes her a mystery to others. THIS is why she is being questioned constantly. Think about it!

    Audrey Hepburn Reply:

    @ONCEINALIFTETIME, I do agree that she has built this “perfect image” and there is a big mystery surrounding who she really is. Honestly, I hope she is pregnant b/c anyone who would fake a pregnancy needs serious help. It’s all very odd, to say the least. We’ve yet to see a clear, unambiguous pic of her with her bump exposed. I just believe that with all her success, she hasn’t been real and hasn’t truly shared her personal experiences though her music. There are so many artists that can identify with ppl because of real-life issues. All you get from her and Jay-Z is a bunch of braggadocious, “I’m so fly”, “I a diva,” “I can buy Maybach after Maybach,” attitudes. Where’s the substance and humanity? It just looks like they are focused on one thing: MONEY. And there are far better artists out there with uplifting records with depth and substance that don’t have their level of success. It becomes old after a while to see such powerful people with so much influence not using it to shed light on world issues and human emotion. I had more respect for her on Dangerously in Love, before the power hungry ego took over.

    Audrey Hepburn Reply:

    @ONCEINALIFTETIME, In addition, it’s up to ppl like them with alot of influence to set artistic standards and make history. She or Jay are no where in MJ’s league and sadly, they lack the heart that MJ had. The most iconic,legendary artists include John Lennon, Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, Marvin Gaye, Whitney, Mariah, Tupac, Biggie, etc because of their humanitarianism and lyrics about children, love, real life, world peace, harmony, and overcoming struggle. Bey has made it perfectly clear that she wants Oscars & other awards and has all of these over-the-top plans but fails to enlighten us on her spiritual aspirations and connections with the people. Not just her “fans” but “the people.” I hate to ramble, but it’s a shame to see such power they(Bey & Jay) have go to the indulgence of White people, name brands, male bashing songs, misogynistic raps with the use of the b-word, and materialistic references.

    @ONCEINALIFTETIME, Hold up………How the hell she get pregnant in july when she just announced on her new dvd thats comes out tuesday Nov. 29th that she is due in dec, and that she was 6 mos pregnant when she made the countdown vid in sept? maybe u need to get your facts straight! If your so much of a fan u would have that in order! And 2nd she had a big baby bump in Aug for the MTV VMA’S and that was tapped in august so why dont she have a baby bump in july? Come on get outta here and get real!

    [Reply]

    ONCEINALIFTETIME Reply:

    @Tia, My comment was made BEFORE the dvd clip was released. Please use your brain and better yet eyes to look at dates before responding to peoples comments? Ok? K! Second maybe you should check your facts. Most of countdown was recorded before she started showing back in June/July around the same time she recorded Party and Love on top they went BACK in September and recorded the rest of countdown when she was showing. She got pregnant in April meaning during July she was only 4 months pregnant.Most women do not show that early even more so a woman who is fit. When she turned to the side in this performance you can clearly see around her pelvic area something is off hence why her skirt band is placed up so high. I don’t know why I even bother with you people….damn if you don’t shit about pregnancy or the illusion of clothing shut the F#ck up and keep it moving. If you look at shit for what it really is or better yet know about pregnancy and stop basing it off of here say and rise tales you’ve heard from other people you would know that every body does not blow up during pregnancy. I’n 4 months pregnant and you can not tell. There have been women who hid their pregnancy full term without anyone knowing (example the girl who through her baby in the garbage at her prom) so YOU get outta her or better yet pick up a book and learn about pregnancy. I wen’t to school for this have you?
