I’m not going to put up 50/11 blog posts about the MTV VMAs because the other blogs have all of that covered for you already and some blogs need your traffic.

What I am going to post is another Beyonce blog in the hopes that you kids will recognize that a master manipulator was at work last night.

Beyonce, and her basketball, showed up at the MTV VMAs last night and surprised everyone with her pregnancy announcement. Yet 10 days ago she played to FOUR sold out houses at Roseland in NYC. Not once did she announce her pregnancy to her adoring fans who lined up for hours even though they had tickets.

If she was pregnant 10 days ago she should have been just as happy as she was last night (unless she’s a sociopath). Yes, she touched her belly a couple of times but it wasn’t obvious to the eye that she was pregnant 10 days ago or everyone would have been talking about it.

The fact that Beyonce showed up at the last minute at the VMAs with a swollen belly and acting so maternal, when just 10 days ago she wasn’t behaving that way, proves what a master manipulator she is.

It is clear from the pictures below that there was no visible baby bump on Beyonce just 10 days ago.

If you are in denial you will see whatever you want to see. But Beyonce’s belly was flat 10 days ago. Someone suggested that she was wearing compression clothing at her concerts. Really? Do first time pregnant women wear compression clothing?

It’s obvious that she is using her baby (or whatever that is) as a prop to get attention. For those of you who have never been pregnant: women don’t grow baby bumps in 10 days. That’s not how human biology works.

Watch the video of Beyonce’s surprise pregnancy announcement and VMAs performance after the break!

I realize that some of you are incurable Beyonce Stans, and as such, your Stan worship can cloud your judgment. So I prepared this graphic to help you see how ridiculous it is that Beyonce expects us to believe she grew a baby bump in just 10 days! The pictures don’t lie.

Even if she is pregnant, why would she upstage all the other celebrities at the MTV Video Music Awards last night when she could have simply made the announcement during one of her 4 concerts 2 weeks ago?

I feel sorry for her spawn if she is pregnant. The baby has an attention whore for a mother and a camel for a dad.

In my 19 years in the music industry, I’ve seen narcissistic celebrities go to absurd lengths to grab headlines. But Beyoncé really took the cake tonight at the MTV Video Music Awards when she showed up on the red carpet with what was obviously a fake baby bump.

Beyoncé made sure she was going to upstage every celebrity at the awards show even before the show began, by announcing her pregnancy — a pregnancy that no one saw coming even though she has not left the public eye in months.

I find it necessary to remind my readers that Beyoncé was just onstage 10 days ago in New York with NO visible baby bump!

Now all of a sudden — 10 days later — she shows up at the VMA’s with a swollen belly looking like she’s 6 months pregnant? LOL! I can’t stop laughing! 😆

Hip Hop’s #1 rapper/songwriter Drake won the prestigious “Songwriter of the Year” award at the 11th Annual BMI Urban Awards last night at the Pantages Theater in Los Angeles. Drake is most deserving of that honor. BMI collects licensing fees for artists and publishers for most of the music you hear on the radio.

In 1983, Steve Jobs, a 27-year-old multimillionaire, introduced the world’s first personal home computer with a mouse driven gui, called the Apple Lisa.

According to TMZ.com, this photo of the Apple co-founder and former CEO was taken today — two days after he resigned as the head honcho of Apple.

The post title refers to a Mark Twain quote that Jobs recited at a Apple keynote meeting after a media outlet mistakenly published his obituary in 2008.

In 2004, Jobs announced that he had been diagnosed with a cancerous tumor in his pancreas — one of the deadliest forms of cancer.

Remember when Washington Wizards star Gilbert Arenas was suspended by the league for pulling a gun on a player in the locker room during an argument over a gambling debt last January?

Well, that player, Javaris Crittenton, is wanted by police in connection with the drive-by shooting death of a 23-year-old woman on an Atlanta street last week.

According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Javaris Crittenton will be charged with homicide in the death of Jullian Jones.

Jones was walking with two men near 2915 Macon Drive in southwest Atlanta around 10 p.m. Aug. 19 when she was shot, according to Carlos Campos, APD spokesman. Jones, a mother of three, was struck in the hip and later died during surgery.

The two men walking with Jones fled and were not injured.

Police say Jones was not the intended target. Crittenton may have been seeking retaliation after he was the victim of a robbery on April 21, 2011, Campos said.

R&B singer Ciara was spotted leaving her New York hotel yesterday heading for the airport in advance of Hurricane Irene’s landfall on Sunday. She was wearing brown leather pants with a white blouse and her favorite pair of Christian Louboutins. Ciara, 25, is busy recording her 1st album for Epic Records under LA Reid. This album should put her back on top where she belongs! The entire city of NY is coming to a standstill as New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg ordered the subway system and other modes of public transportation shut down for the first time ever. NYC will be a disaster area once the trains stop running because most residents don’t have cars.

Mayor Bloomberg also ordered a mandatory evacuation of some low lying areas of Manhattan. And since all of Manhattan is surrounded by water, that includes just about everyone. Some New York and New Jersey residents have already evacuated inland. But hard core New Yorkers who aren’t afraid of a little wind and rain are staying put.

Foxy lady Queen Latifah made an appearance on ‘Good Morning America’ with host Robin Roberts to promote her clothing collection for HSN yesterday in New York City. The chick on the far right is Queen Latifah’s longtime assistant, LaWanda “LB” Black. Apparently, both women share the same taste in expensive watches. On a recent trip to Atlanta the ladies stopped by a high end jewelry boutique and picked up matching $25,000 watches. I can’t go into details on how I know all of this. But let’s just say my source is very credible. In fact, she kept insisting that I knew who “LB” was, despite my repeated denials. Does Queen Latifah look great or what? Who else finds it interesting that Queen is following her ex, @TheMonifah, on Twitter? That’s them pictured below during happier times when they always color-coordinated their outfits.
