Beyonce on her post-baby body: “There are no secrets. Discipline.”

I still can’t get over Beyonce’s Givenchy gown at the Met Gala. It’s been days and I’m still thinking about this hideousness. How did the House of Givenchy allow Beyonce to walk out with this dress? Did they send it to her, all “Girl, this dress will look AMAZING on you”? Or did Beyonce make the call? Was she all “THIS is the dress, y’all, these feathers are going to steal the damn show!” I tend to believe Bey made the call and the Givenchy people were secretly horrified. Although… they designed this crap, not Beyonce. They should be ashamed of themselves. Anyway, while Beyonce was on the Met Gala carpet, she only granted one interview, to Entertainment Tonight. In the piece, Beyonce confirms that she wants more kids (pillows?):

Blue Ivy Carter may not be a “Single Lady” forever. At the Met Gala in New York City Monday, new mom Beyonce Knowles, 30, said she and husband Jay-Z, 42, have talked about expanding their brood. “I definitely want to have more,” Knowles told Entertainment Tonight. “I don’t know how many. God knows. I don’t know yet.”

Just don’t expect a pregnancy announcement in the near future. “I don’t know about soon!” Knowles giggled.

The singer — who is currently rehearsing for a special three-night engagement over Memorial Day Weekend at Revel Beach’s Ovation Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey — added that she has “such a full life. I feel like now I know the reason that I was born.”

Knowles said she’s “been working really hard” to get her post-baby back. “There are no secrets. [It takes] discipline!”

She’s not kidding. The 16-time Grammy Award winner works out five days a week with trainer Marco Borges. “We do cardio and plyometric moves like lunges and jumps on and off a bench,” the pro recently told Us Weekly.

Knowles, who is 5-foot-9, avoids processed fare and sticks to whole foods like vegetables and grilled meats. “You don’t have to eat only celery sticks,” Borges advised. “Be sensible and exercise constantly.”

[From Us Weekly]

I giggled when Beyonce said “there are no secrets” to how she got her body back after the baby. Girl, keep trying to convince us. I love that she keeps trying. And don’t you love how the stories about her workouts keep changing? She says one thing to People Magazine, her trainer says another thing to Us Weekly, then Beyonce mentions to ET that she hasn’t been working out that much… except for “dancing, eight hours, nine hours a day.” Hahahaha. Wait, is she serious?

    Discipline indeed – almost sounds like she’s implying if you don’t get it together as fast as she did, you’re not disciplined. Women with “discipline” who have less time to spare following a pregnancy (or want to allocate more time towards face time with baby) will get back in shape, too. Just slower.

  2. moopsie says:

    I’m no fashion expert but her hair and make-up clashes with her dress

  3. Nessa says:

    OMG, I wish she would just SHUT THE F UP!!!!

  4. Bite me aka aniston says:

    Mrs camel is so fucking tacky

  5. Anne says:

    Hmm. Well Bey, if the average mum had nannies, cooks and the rest, they could devote hours to their figures. Discipline my arse!

  6. Eve says:

    And spandex.

  7. Mel says:

    She can’t be serious. Dancing 8 to 9 hours a day? What about the baby? I miss so much my kids when they were babies…. How could you want to miss this time? Unbelievable.

    • DeltaJuliet says:

      I’m starting to feel that for a lot of celebrities, the baby is an accessory, as in, look how gorgeous and skinny I am holding this adorable baby!

    • MST says:

      I know what you mean — I had to go back to work when my daughter was 18 months and I cried. They grow so fast, and those times when they are little are sooo precious and magical. I can’t believe that my little grandson is going to be a year on the 29th and is walking!

    • LittleDeadGirl says:

      A thousand times agree. I know so many mum who hate being away from their kids but they have to work or go to school. She has enough money to spend some time with her kid. I’m not saying stop working devote every hour of the day to a baby but she just gave birth for god’s sake. Take a few months with the baby. Bond. If you don’t want to do that then I don’t get the point of having a baby. Like the poster above … sometimes it seems like babies are just accessories to these people.

  8. mel2 says:

    Beyonce please go somewhere and sit down and STFU about how much weight you’ve lost.

  9. Eener says:

    Discipline comes easy when you’ve only got a pillow to lose.

  10. Gia says:

    She always seems so nervous and uncomfortable in interviews now. She’s obviously super anxious about being asked ‘hard’ questions about her pregnancy. It’s honestly hard to watch…I wish she would just come clean, but she’s too far deep now.

    • A Girl Named Mikki says:

      Wait! You think it’s because of the controversy surrounding her “pregnancy”?? I’ve always thought it was her inability to stream together two coherent sentences.

      My daughter loves her and always wanted me to check out her interviews. When she opened her mouth, her speech didn’t match the image SOMEBODY has been trying to project.

      She’s a lovely girl but she should just stay in her lane…

  11. beclove says:

    Screw the pillow, I can’t believe she went out in public with her ass on display. Tacky.

  12. Beyonce's Bump says:

    I do NOT know for the life of me why she is becoming a *blatant* attention whore since the “birth” of blue ivy. It feels like she is trying to prove something, trying to be more *real* after the fakeness that surrounded this pregnancy. I used to like her, mostly because she was not a desperate attention seeking slore but now she is beyond obnoxious. Please go take several seats maam!

  13. Anne de Vries says:

    Holy shit, I hadn’t seen before just how see-through that dress it. Lady, we can see your ass cheeks. Do Not Want!

    And sure, discipline. Plus stopping the steriods so the puffiness fades off. Plus, you know, not actually carrying a baby.

  14. Liberty says:

    She may be right. Look how fast Charlize got her body back. :rolling eyes into space:

  15. T.C. says:

    What the hell is that dress? Should have gone naked cause it’s the same difference. Sick of these stars trying to give us normal folks without nannies, time and money exercise advise.

    • Yes, I'm that Leah says:

      it’s baphomet. the devils mascot. the devils face can bee seen sewn into the belly area of the dress. the eyes of the devil are sewn in too. she wore baphomet at last years met gala and in her girls video. taylor swift does it too, fyi.

      hope this helps….

  16. chaseme says:

    Is Beyonce really only 30?? That means she was only 15 when Destiny’s Child put out their first album. That doesn’t seem right. I was 17 that year and I thought they were all older than I was at the time.

  17. TheOriginalKitten says:

    SIT. DOWN. Jesus…this woman. I also have to wonder why the reporters won’t stop asking her about her body. Are they hoping she’ll cave and suddenly reveal that it was a pilow all along? Ugh. I wish I hadn’t read this crap…I want that 5 minutes of my life back.

  18. Katren says:

    that ‘holding the top of the thighs’ pose shes doing in almost every photo is terrible!

  19. Chatcat says:

    I have determined that she cannot have an IQ over 20, which doesn’t surprise me but I thought her hubby’s was higher…and probably is but since his moral compass is non-existant IQ doesn’t count.

  20. Jayna says:

    Beyonce is smart like a fox. She got more press than anybody there. And, truthfully, on live video and from many angles the dress is spectacular on her for that particular type of ball. It isn’t like going to the Oscars and being safe.

    • Yes, I'm that Leah says:

      Right. She sould not have gotten that press. She wasn’t even invited. Her sister Solange was and got Beyonce in. She couldn’t let her sister enjoy her invite. Beyonce had to be the showstopper. The center of attention. I don’t know how Solange deals with Beyonce trying to “upstage” her all of the time.

    • Anna says:

      It doesn’t take “smarts” –human, animal, vegetable, or otherwise–to get press attention at these kinds of things. Being “outrageous” or tacky or in a see through dress is as banal, boring, and old-as-the-hills a routine celeb tactic as they come.

      Going classy, elegant, sure of yourself, and not insecure. is newsworthy….because it is so rare.

  21. Minnie says:

    She looks the same to me. I would never want that body, too thick plus enough with the siren style, more like shamoo style, she looks cheap and nobody wants to see that! Cover up woman! Trash.

  22. Khalesi says:

    dear lord, it looks (and apparently sounds) like she is shitting feathers out of her a**

  23. anya says:

    Get over it- she has a banging body

  24. TheOriginalVictoria says:

    If she had chosen a better fit, matching make up and better underwear, like Chloe, her dress could have been EVERYTHING and I would have no choice but to give her props. Thank God she missed the boat as always.

    And SHE is dancing 9 hours a day probably getting ready for her Memorial Day weekend concerts. Columbia needs their money recouped and they are playing no games with this chick.

    And FTR, I absolutely don’t think Bey has a bad body. That’s the one thing on her that is not bad at all. A lot of it is fake but then what isn’t in Hollyhell, these days?

    • jover says:

      Good points about how the industry works; i didn’t think of that; this fake thinks she’s royalty but she’s just a product that has lost money and now must work it to make good on the contractual agreements i’m guessing as you’ve stated.

  25. Me2 says:

    Observation — when asked about the baby she looks SO uncomfortable, looking away over and over. As SOON as she’s asked about business/singing she visibly changes, looks the ET reporter in the eye…is it just me?? Speaks volumes. Talking about my baby was the easiest and most natural thing in the world to me. She has this underlying frantic feel about her when she does.

  26. Me says:

    It does take discipline. She may have the money to hire the help but even if you dont… it still takes discipline!! Dont be so catty! She looks fab… and if her bum wasnt hanging out the dress would be awesome.

  27. lucy2 says:

    Something’s just not right with the whole thing. And yeah, discipline is easy when you have a small army of people catering to your every need.

    That dress is horrific.

  28. kristiner says:

    I don’t have the discipline to wear a pillow bump for hours on end.

    I can’t even wear clip in hair extensions for hours on end.

    JFC! What the crap is that dress? The back of God awful. Oh my God!

  29. mymy says:

    Well I never. You don’t say. That must have been what was missing in my life after my child was born. Thanks for the 911

  30. Eric says:

    She should take a Valium, so when reporters ask her about the baby she can look them straight in the eye instead of looking around, if you can’t lie well do everyone a favor and stay home with your Mexican baby.

  31. TxGal says:

    You know for someone that has been gushing how great it is to be a mom, I am surprise she didn’t take some time off to be with the baby. As she say’s she is dancing 8-9 hours a day?? So when does she have time to bond with her child???

    She is so full of herself and a fake.

    • original almond says:

      That’s what’s got me scratching my head, as well. How many hours does her day have?

      Because she’d need like 40 in order to accommodate all that dancing and spending time with the baby, not to mention eating, sleeping, showering etc.

      And mind you, I’m counting the nannies in that schedule as well. She wouldn’t even be running to change diapers all day. SMDH at the obvious stupidity.

  32. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    How long until that dancing started? Wouldn’t she have been ripped V to A for a while?

  33. Bad Gal Addiction says:

    Yikes, the ends of her weave sure look like she cut it herself … with a plastic safety scissors for toddlers!

  34. Twez says:

    Discipline and industrial-strength spanx and hose. Bitch, please.

    The best response to this sort of question I ever saw was from Sandra Bullock, who said basically, “It’s a requirement of my job. If you had to work out as part of your job, you would look like this, too.”

  35. Granger says:

    Sorry to be naive but the pillow-bump theory still has me scratching my head. If true, it’s a cover-up of massive proportions! Wouldn’t all of her friends and family have to be involved? Because when you’re pregnant, you kind of can’t get away from friends and family wanting to touch your tummy and feel the baby kick. So Beyonce asking all of her loved ones to commit to such a huge lie for her… I don’t know, that just seems preposterous to me. Or do the pillow-bump theorists think her friends and family were just as duped as the rest of us?

  36. lunabell says:

    I normally can’t stand Beyonce, but I can’t hate on her for that comment.

    Being rich and having all the help in the world certainly makes being fit easier, but it doesn’t necessarily guarantee it – look at Oprah’s weight struggles.

    Exercising is not enjoyable / does not come naturally for everyone! Unless it does, being on any kind of exercise regimen takes discipline. I’m currently on summer break from school with nothing to do – work hasn’t started yet – and I’m still having trouble taking my ass to the gym as often as I should :/

  37. Nev says:

    The Olsen Twin in full black was the best dressed at the Met Gala.

    those girls are fashion.full.on.

  38. Jaded says:

    Why would a hospital be complicit in a “fake” birth? How is it that she and her posse could go into a hospital for a week to fake having a baby? Did the surrogate check into the ward instead of her? I’m mystified and would appreciate comments!

    • CaramelKiss says:

      The hospital may not have been complicit with the admittance of her…however, depending on whomever leaked the news to the media outlets would be. As HIPAA(Health Privacy Act)is the end-all of be-all for any level of privacy in this country, hospitals do not and cannot police/monitor what has been incorrectly announced nor owe any obligation to correct such statements. If it was the surrogate/gestational carrier instead being admitted, the hospital is not legally bound in any way for what the media reports.

    • jc126 says:

      As far as I can tell, the hospital has done nothing wrong legally; they never released info about her or anything, which would violate HIPAA. The doctors and nurses aren’t allowed to say anything; all the hospital had to do was provide a suite.
      The birth certificate – I believe – would bear the name of the legal parents, not of a surrogate. (I think the baby is biologically Beyonce & Jay Z’s but they used a surrogate to carry it).
      Probably the Carters made a hefty donation to the hospital (i hope so).

  39. Zen says:

    Maybe it’s just me but IMO, I think that dress isn’t for someone with a curvy physique. I think it would look better on someone with a slender physique like, let’s say Nicole Kidman because honestly that dress makes Beyoncé look a tad bit shorter than 5’9.

  40. jover says:

    Chatcat, you’re insulting chipmunks, pigeons, and other rodents of the fields and marshes by implying that bouncy has a higher IQ than such creatures; a poster on a previous bouncy thread put it right – she is such a clod and it is laughable to watch clods attempt to be intellectual; this jig will be up when she has to take her little mexican baby out in public or will she and camel hire a stunt double to keep the charade going.

  41. No secrets ladies, no secrets. Just a pillow stuffed up my jumper. No secrets. Damn feathers get everywhere though!

  42. Lithe says:

    By “discipline” she probably means “keeping your mouth shut”.

  43. Shelly says:

    “Exercise constantly”??? No thanks!!! Sounds like pure torture.

  44. Dhavy says:

    “Bey, what’s the secret to your amazing shape?”

    “I never leave home without my triple spanx outfit and always take a colon cleanser (highly recommended by my good friend Goop). Oh, and as appetite suppressant, I stare at my husband and poof! My hunger goes away! I don’t do the latter too much since it sometimes drives me to binge eating”

  45. MST says:

    Well, I don’t know if we’re being catty, we’re just expressing our opinion. I don’t have to like someone just because they’re a woman, nor do I have to support or like someone just because they’re black.

  46. sugar says:

    i gotta say the pillow prop was hard for me to believe until & BUT as a mom who experienced labor not once but twice it was something she said about being in labor for “a long time” or was it “a really long time”. so just like LiLo couldn’t really name how many days of sobriety she had (remember that) Beyonce couldn’t blurt out that rite of passage all women who have had a baby know that they know and are proud to admit. I can name it to the hour and minute for both of my kids even with 26 & 28 years gone by. something you go thru alone & don’t really forget @ least in my time-I can’t speak for them long ago ether days.

  47. Shaz says:

    No secrets, just discipline…and unlimited budget for a personal chef, personal trainers, all the spare time you want, nannies, housekeepers, personal assistants, expert diet doctors, diet aids, masseuses, saunas, …did I leave anything out? Yes, I did. A massive, delusional ego.

  48. What a great way to use a leftover pillow…make a dress

  49. Jaana says:

    Beyonce is gorgeous and sexy. go girl! you are amazing!!!

  50. Jilly Bean says:

    gawd! I couldnt wait to read the comment stream on this one…. just as entertaining as the article!!

    such a farce

  51. Mar says:

    I saw her here once in a club in Miami- she had high heels on and she wasn’t more then an inch or so taller then me and I’m 5’5. She’s about 5’7 tops

  52. Mar says:

    I saw her here once in a club in Miami- she had high heels on and she wasn’t more then an inch or so taller then me and I’m 5’5. She’s about 5 foot 7

  53. BlackSwan777 says:

    I want to like this woman, but she seems so fake. I wish she would just admit she had a surrogate due to her career/ vanity/possible fertility issues. Lots of other women in Hollywood use surrogates and nobody seems to judge them.

  54. tmbg says:

    Every time I look at her, I can’t help but to think of Kristen Blake from Days of Our Lives in the 90s. She really worked that pillow baby angle, going so far as to find herself a dingbat lookalike to give birth to the real thing so she could fool John!

  55. Meanchick says:

    Miss Thang waited until after everyone else made their rounds with the paps and showed up thirty minutes after the last person on the red carpet. It was staged. She made sure she had all of the cameras on her bag of flour ass and fug-a-lee dress. She is too vain to even pose with her own siser who looked 100x better! This is the Met, you don’t go to the Met with your ass cheeks out! She had an opportunity to show some class and instead she chose to try to outdress and outshine everyone else. And why does Mr. Talking Llama opt out of so many things? He never goes to these things with her. I agree with an above post. She is not that bright, but tries super hard to appear smart. I wish she would just STFD for a while and stop with the tacky regalia and silly interviews.

  56. TheOriginalKitten says:

    ‘Morning (or is it afternoon for you?) Asli! :)
    When I first started reading about the theories behind the fake pillow pregnancy I thought it was the most ridiculous stuff I have ever read-just sounded so outlandish/unbelieavable. But now I am convinced she faked it. It kind of makes sense too because it is probably easier for her to keep lying than to have admitted that they were having issues conceiving (if that was indeed the problem-who knows?). Anyway, she could have done women and society in general a favor by admitting that she used a surrogate. I know it’s essentially none of our business but it would have helped to destigmatize the idea of surrogacy instead of keeping it a “dirty little secret”. Then again, she would have had to *sacrifice* her and her hubby’s image as the perfect power couple. SMH…

  57. TheOriginalVictoria says:

    Truer words have never been spoken.

  58. TheOriginalKitten says:

    It’s so crazy because I was never a huge fan of her music but I always liked her. She always *seemed* so genuine. The stuff about her hacking that poor girl’s account and just the sketchiness surrounding Destiny’s Child etc has really really made me dislike her. She is the exact opposite of what I initially thought she was. Fake as hell this one..

  59. Katren says:

    What sketchy shit about destinys child?? apart from her being “15″ lol

  60. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    How would you like to be the kid who is never so much as mentioned whilst your father refers to his new baby as his ‘greatest creation’? Happy Father’s Day.

  61. LAK says:

    @Katren – also look at website where a timeline of beyonce sightings during the supposed 9months of pregnancy has been posted. They’ve used only official sightings put out by Beyonce herself.

  62. jesstar says:

    I feel the same way kitten. I thought the pillow conspiracy was ridiculous, but now I totally believe she faked the whole thing.
    The main reason I didnt believe it before is because she always struck me as “simpleminded” and not really capable of pulling it off. But really, she didnt.

  63. LAK says:

    one of my younger cousins was with me when we were posting all those videos beyonce had copied several threads ago. My poor cousin is traumatised, and i feel very bad for ruining her childhood memories. Beyounce and dc were the soundtrack to her childhood. *hangs head in shame* so now i am on Beyonce warpath.
