Beyonce has lashed out (again) at rumors that she paid a surrogate to carry her first child. In the latest issue of People magazine, Beyonce calls the rumors that she was never with child “stupid” and “crazy.”

Remember that infamous television appearance in which Beyonce’s belly bump appeared to fold in half? Beyonce had an answer for that: “It was a fabric that folded — does fabric not fold?” she said.

Yes, Beyonce, fabric folds — pregnant bellies do not. At least not in the real world.

Take a look at the photos above. The pictures are a side-by-side comparison of Jessica Simpson and Beyonce when they were both 7 months pregnant. I won’t insult your intelligence by asking you if Beyonce looks pregnant in the above pic.

Here’s what we can see with our own eyes: Every part of Jessica’s anatomy looks pregnant — even her hands. On the other hand, no part of Beyonce looks pregnant — not even her abdomen. She looks like she just got finished performing in a low budget play with a lumpy pillow stuffed under her dress.

Yet Beyonce and her mother, Tina Knowles, continues to insist that we’re the crazy ones for believing our eyes.

Have we ever known Beyonce or her mom to be honest women? Has anything changed? Do we really expect them to come clean now after carrying on this charade for all these months?

From Celebrity Babies:

“That was crazy. It wasn’t hurtful, it was just crazy,” the songstress, 30, tells PEOPLE. “[I thought] ‘Where did they come up with this?’”

But perhaps the person most affected by the surrogacy speculation was not the expectant mom herself, but rather her own mother, Tina Knowles.

“I thought it was very unfair and very cruel that someone would think that someone would be that diabolical to keep up a charade like that for nine months,” she says. ”As a mother it was painful for me to hear the crazy rumors. And I even had people ask me, which was so ridiculous.”

Alluding to an Australian interview in which it was later suggested that Beyoncé had been sporting a prosthetic bump, Knowles says, “It was a fabric that folded — does fabric not fold? Oh my gosh, so stupid.”

Fortunately, the protective mom adds, her daughter’s global fan following offered plenty of support. “There was so much love and well wishes from all over the world — it made it easier to deal with the stupid rumors.”
