We already know that Beyoncé (and every other girl) runs the world, but the megastar singer shocked the world, Aug. 28, when she revealed that she and Jay-Z are expecting their first child at the MTV Video Music Awards. And while fans cheered on in the stands the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, Beyoncé and Jay-Z celebrated backstage with friends Kanye West, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams.
According to MTV, after lighting up the stage with a sweet and breezy performance of “Love On Top,” where she, once again, revealed her growing belly, Beyoncé returned backstage to her dressing room where she was greeted with cheers and congratulations.
“I’m free!” said Beyoncé to one of her well-wishers, clearly happy she and Jay no longer have to keep the big secret. “We’re all free!” she said to the group.
Shortly afterwards, Beyoncé was joined by proud-papa-to-be Jay-Z and their ecstatic friend, West, whose first words upon going backstage were, “Where is Beyoncé?”
The trio was also joined by former Destiny’s Child members Rowland and Williams, who could be heard cheering with the group after the doors to Beyoncé’s dressing room closed.
While still in the hallway, Jay-Z, clearly still excited about the news, spoke to well-wishers as they showered him with hugs and cheers.
“That was an eventful night, to say the least,” said Jay, grinning from ear to ear.
It was clearly, the event of the evening. Congratulations to the Carters on their growing dynasty. –nicholas robinson
