RUMOR: Beyonce isn’t actually pregnant—in order to bolster 4‘s cred, use a surrogate to spare Beyonce the agony of the bump, or to win at the VMAs. Nobody can get the reasoning straight. The proof? One still photo from her appearance on Australian TV show Sunday Night of Beyonce’s dress draping inward, not outward, and a lot of after-the-fact analysis of other photos.

DEBUNKED! Occam’s razor. Either Beyonce and Jay-Z recorded two albums’ worth of tracks reflecting on parenthood, then staged a lavish campaign of pregnancy announcements, fake bumps, constant puffing of the stomach whenever it’s not clothed–a campaign nevertheless debunkable by one rogue still–or she is, in fact, pregnant.

DENY, DENY, DENY: “Stupid, ridiculous and false.” – Yvette Noel-Schure, Beyonce’s publicist to ABC News.
