*On Saturday, Beyonce headlined an all-star, girl-powered concert in London to call attention to the plight of women around the world. The show aired Sunday night on NBC, but all folks are talking about Monday morning is a pic she Tumblr’d that appears to dispel recent rumors that she is pregnant.
The 31-year-old, currently on her Mrs. Carter world tour, recently flooded her Tumblr page with a variety of photos from her global travels. One in particular [seen above] shows Bey sitting on the lap of her husband Jay-Z, 43, sipping a glass of what appears to be red wine.
Furthermore, she posted a close-up of a wine bottle, as well a photo of cases upon cases of wine in the restaurant.
Folks today have taken the photos as Bey’s way of saying she’s not pregnant — and not that she suddenly chose to flaunt a decision to drink alcohol if she were.
The pic comes on the heels of her June 1 performance at The Sound of Change Live concert, held at London’s Twickenham Stadium as part of Chime For Change, a global campaign for improved education, health and justice for women and girls worldwide.
Bey co-founded the effort along with Gucci’s creative director Frida Giannini, and actress Salma Hayek Pinault. In addition to Beyonce, the performance lineup included Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Lopez, John Legend, Florence + the Machine, Ellie Goulding, Jessie J, Haim, Iggy Azalea, Rita Ora, Timbaland and Laura Pausini.
Also, Madonna was on hand to introduce Emmy- and Oscar-winning Pakistani documentary filmmaker Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy. And appearing on stage for the cause were Blake Lively, James Franco, Jessica Chastain, Ryan Reynolds, Zoe Saldana, Jada Pinkett Smith and more.
Some 50,000 in attendance saw the acts perform in between calls for audience members to head to Facebook and find a cause to support.
The show also featured several surprise collaborations. Lopez, after performing a set complete with costume changes, special effects and dancers which included her current single, “Live It Up,” followed by “Get Right,” “Love Don’t Cost A Thing,” “Jenny From The Block” and “Hold It Don’t Drop It,” pulled out Mary J. Blige for a cover of the “Come Together.” [Scroll down to watch.] She closed her set with “On The Floor,” releasing shooting cannons of white confetti up in the air as she exited the stage.
Beyonce, after being introduced by Hayek, performed a 45-minute set bathed in gold, black and silver. In the middle of “Crazy In Love,” she brought out Jay-Z. [Scroll down to watch.]
Her acapella rendition of “I Will Always Love You” followed by “Halo” closed out the night.
