Beyoncé Would Love It If People Stopped Asking If She’s Pregnant

December 9, 2019 / Posted by:

Every time Beyoncé steps out of the house with an ounce of Taco Tuesday bloat, the internet doesn’t take long to start hypothesizing about just how pregnant she is. Even a hint of new mommy energy sees a drastic drop in the Earth’s oxygen levels due to a million Beyhive members suddenly hyperventilating at the thought of another chosen one. Well, here’s the thing about that. Beyoncé would probably rather have you ask about that alleged Las Vegas residency than hear any more questions about the situation in her womb.

Beyoncé gave an “Ask Me Anything” interview to ELLE magazine for their January issue. And they really did cover anything. Here’s what we learned: Beyoncé’s karaoke songs are “The Pina Colada Song” and “Hotel California.” She loves Oreos. It doesn’t matter how long she takes to get ready, just so long as she looks like Halle Berry in the end. Her least favorite word is “no,” and her most favorite word is “why.”

At one point Beyoncé was asked, “What question do you hate to answer?” To which she replied:

“Are you pregnant? Get off my ovaries!”

And she’s probably been asked that a lot lately. Back in August, fans began speculating that Beyoncé was dropping hints that Jay-Z’s sperm did its thing and helped create a fourth cultural icon. She has been posting quite a few pictures on social media featuring her hands and handbags strategically covering her midsection. But if that were true, then wouldn’t Beyoncé be kind of huge by now? These pictures posted late last month prove she’s not. But then again, they could be old pictures she was saving in an attempt to keep everyone off her ovaries.

Also, here’s more of Beyoncé in ELLE, and she doesn’t exactly look pregnant.

“If someone told me 15 years ago that my body would go through so many changes and fluctuations, and that I would feel more womanly and secure with my curves, I would not have believed them,” @beyonce told ELLE. “But children and maturity have taught me to value myself beyond my physical appearance and really understand that I am more than enough no matter what stage I’m at in life. Giving zero 🤬s is the most liberating place to be.” Link in bio for the full January 2020 cover story. #BeyoncexELLE ⁣ ⁣ ELLE January 2020: ⁣ Editor-in-Chief: @ninagarcia ⁣ Cover star: @beyonce⁣ Photographer: @msmelina ⁣ Stylist: #KarenLangley ⁣ Makeup: @sirjohn ⁣ Hair: @nealfarinah @nakiarachon ⁣ Production: Ben Bonnet @westyproductions

“This new [Ivy Park] line is fun and lends itself to creativity, the ultimate power,” @beyonce told ELLE. “I focused on designing a unisex collection of footwear and apparel because I saw so many men in Ivy Park. The way they have embraced the brand is an unexpected gift. I appreciate the beauty of gender-neutral clothing and breaking the so-called fashion rules. I took a chance on myself when I bought my company back. We all have the confidence in us to take chances and bet on ourselves.” Link in bio for the full January 2020 cover story. #BeyoncexELLE ⁣ ⁣ ELLE January 2020: ⁣ Editor-in-Chief: @ninagarcia ⁣ Cover star: @beyonce⁣ Photographer: @msmelina ⁣ Stylist: #KarenLangley ⁣ Makeup: @sirjohn ⁣ Hair: @nealfarinah @nakiarachon ⁣ Production: Ben Bonnet @westyproductions

That doesn’t mean she doesn’t want to talk about being a mom. Earlier in the interview, Beyoncé said that her greatest joy is being a mother to Blue Ivy, Rumi, and Sir Carter. And she’s comfortable talking about her body. She said that she currently feels “more womanly and secure” with her curves, and that she “gives zero fucks” when she sees people online commenting about her weight.  But she really doesn’t like being asked if she’s pregnant, so people can stop asking her that. The only thing is, is that really the only question she hates to answer? Just the one? Because if I had to guess prior to reading this interview, I would have assumed that one of the questions Beyoncé hates to answer is: “Are you sure you didn’t copy this from someone else?
