Okay I thought Beyonce was great back in the day, first with Destiny's Child and then when she first emerged as a solo artist, but over the last 10 or so years, while her popularity has been building to the point where people "worship" her (for real?? Edit: yes, they're probably being sarcastic but still....), I'm terribly put off by her and her antics!! I just don't understand the hype around her anymore.
As for the pregnancy pictures? Creepy as anything. Want to announce she's pregnant with twins? Fantastic, go right ahead! Do an elaborate (and tacky-looking) photo shoot? No thanks!
In all sincerity, congrats to her and Jay-Z but.....she really didn't have announce her pregnancy in this over-the-top fashion.
I'm exactly the same. Loved her in the D Child days and loved her even more when she went solo in the first few years. For the most part I also liked her photoshoots, music and found she dressed beautifully at events; rather classy and glamorous. Then she changed quite a bit, different style and the lyrics became awful. PR stunts and exposure of her private life in every way and I just don't get the worship and "queen b" stuff.. I think she's lost the plot a long time ago, I stopped being a fan and this photoshoot is awful as heck.
If it is to "prove" it isn't a surrogacy, then I think it could still have been done in a much better way. There are actually pretty shots of her during the first pregnancy in a bikini, so doing this to stop rumours won't really affect the gossip mill..
