There were some conspiracy theories that Beyonce wasn’t actually pregnant with her daughter Blu Ivy, and perhaps used a surrogate. There’s nothing wrong with that if that’s what she did, but despite a strange shot of Beyonce where her bump appears to fold in on itself, there’s mounting evidence that the conspiracy theories just weren’t true.
Beyonce shares glimpses of her very real baby bump, and even a sonogram of baby Blue Ivy in her documentary for HBO called ‘Life Is But A Dream.’
In the trailer for the doc, Beyonce also get thoughtful about the unique personal struggles that can manifest when you’re a pop star sitting on top of the world.
“I always battle with ‘How much do I reveal about myself?’ ‘How do I stay current?’ ‘How do I stay soulful?’ I felt like I had been so commercially successful, it wasn’t enough. There’s something so stressful about having to keep up with that. You can’t express yourself. You can’t grow. It is the battle of my life. So I set a goal, and my goal was independence. Everyone was like ‘What is she gonna do now?’”
“People see celebrities, they have money and fame, but I’m a human being. I cry, and I get scared, I get nervous just like everyone else.”
“Power’s not given to you. You have to take it. You’re playing a part in a much bigger show, and that’s what life is.”
‘Life is But a Dream’ debuts February 16 on HBO.
