Dr. Savannah Guthrie On Bey’s Pregnancy: ‘Unless She’s Like 30 Seconds Pregnant, I Don’t Know’

Beyonce Chime for Change Concert June 1 2013

I'm sorry. I lied to you. Savannah Guthrie isn't a doctor. She doesn't even play one on TV. I just thought throwing that in the title would make this article about Beyonce's pregnancy much more credible. And it must've worked because you clicked! I did it! I solved the Internet! Now onto more complicated matters, such as getting a new high score on Candy Crush.

Just kidding, I'm still here to talk about Bey's pregnancy all the live long day. Despite the fact that the usually credible E! Online confirmed her pregnancy weeks ago, Beyonce and Jay-Z are still being pretty hush-hush on the topic. Actually, I take that back. They're not so much being hush-hush as they're being shut-up-if-and-when-we-get-pregnant-we-will-handle-the-announcement-on-our-own-terms. Hence this photo from the weekend of Beyonce drinking wine. It's a not so subtle way to tell everyone that they're very much in charge of their own rumor mill, thank you very much.

Another way they blatantly played that game this weekend? While speaking with Today's Savannah Guthrie at the Chime for Change concert in London, Beyonce pretended not to know anything about pregnancy rumors. You know, to give off the impression that she's beyond rumors. She doesn't even know what the word means. Maybe Sasha Fierce does, but Beyonce certainly does not. Radar Online has the full report.

“What kind of rumor? Huh?” the 31-year-old stunner joked,playing coy and not giving any affirmation either way in her body language. “I don’t know what you’re talking about!”

Savannah Guthrie (who I repeat is NOT a doctor) followed this up by letting us know that post-interview, she doesn't think she's preggers either.

“When I saw her, she was wearing this sheath dress and I thought, ‘Hmm, maybe,’” Savannah said. “Then I saw her on stage, and she was wearing a leather body suit. So unless she’s like 30 seconds pregnant, I don’t know”

So yeah between the four of us — you, me, Bey, Savanns — I'm officially hopping off the Beyonce pregnancy train. The ride's been fun, but I get motion sick anyways and I don't want to be the last one riding when she shares a photo of herself doing a very-non-pregnant keg stand.
