Site: Beyonce Is Pregnant with Potatoes

Truth rating: 0

By Daniel Gates


We don’t know how to break this to MediaTakeOut, but… Beyonce is pregnant. The superstar and Jay-Z are (really) expecting their first baby. She’s even designing her own maternity line. It’s not a hoax. It’s not fake. It’s not a publicity stunt.

Beyonce is pregnant, and she’s set to give birth in February. But for some reason, MediaTakeOut keeps posting stories that suggest Beyonce is either fabricating or somehow exaggerating the pregnancy. The site charges that she wore a “prosthetic baby bump” to fool people at the MTV VMAs. It’s declared that it’s “not humanly possible” for Beyonce to look the way she looks. And now, as her due date draws ever closer and MTO’s nonsense looks more and more foolish, the site is still desperately insisting that Beyonce is running some kind of belly scam.

In a “WORLD EXCLUSIVE” today, MediaTakeOut claims to have stunning new pictures of “Beyonce’s STOMACH… And It’s All LUMPY… Like A Sack of Potatoes!!” Yes, that’s actually the new MTO premise: There’s something fishy about Beyonce’s lumpy bump, because it looks like she’s carrying a sack of potatoes, which the webloid has superimposed over her belly (see above). “Then again, maybe this is just another OPTICAL ILLUSION,” speculates the site.

Gossip Cop thinks MediaFakeOut is confusing delusion for illusion. It’s probably time for MTO to own up to past mistakes and just admit that Beyonce is pregnant. That way, we could avoid wild theories that describe her “lumpy” belly as potato-like.
