Beyonce Pregnancy A Hoax?

Rumors are swirling online that Beyonce and Jay-Z's baby, born Saturday at Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan, was actually born to a surrogate. The star debuted her baby bump on Aug. 28 at the MTV Video Music Awards, setting a Twitter record around the announcement. At the time, Beyonce was about three months along -- the standard time when pregnant couples announce a little one is on the way. Since then, Beyonce was unlike most expectant moms, shunning comfortable flats and loose clothes for sky-high platforms and figure-hugging outfits. But in October, footage of a TV interview in Australia led to speculation that the diva was wearing a prosthetic. Either way, Blue Ivy Carter was born on Jan. 7 at a healthy 7 pounds.

    Mike MoranDecember 10, 2008 at 4:18 pmExcellent pontis, Kyle. So many people want to jump into social media and start the sell, sell, sell. Just as when you first walk into any community, you need to listen before you engage. Reply

And, by listening carefully and using automation tools to filter the noise, its pretty easy to stumble upon a number of great opportunities for business relationships.Thanks again for the post.

    This is, wuhtoit a doubt, the most awful, heartfelt rendition of “O Holy Night” that I’ve ever heard. I’m a reasonably respectable tenor, and my dangly bits tried to retract themselves at the sound of that high note. My cats and dogs fled in utter terror and agony. It doesn’t get much better than that. Thank you for sharing!

    I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy that I came across this during my hunt for something relating to this.
