Singer says she can't believe the story made the news
After announcing she was expecting her first child earlier this year, the singer was accussed of wearing a prosthetic baby bump during an appearance on a US chat show. However, the singer has refuted the claims.
In the clip, which was filmed on the set of her ‘Countdown’ video in September, the singer says: “Hello, it is September 23. Oh baby, oh baby, oh baby, oh baby,” whilst rubbing her bump.
She holds up a copy of New York Daily News and adds: “This was on the cover of the Daily News. Right now I’m actually shooting the video for ‘Countdown’ and I’m six months pregnant, pretending that my stomach is flat in body suits,” before adding:
Thank god you can’t tell from the front, but when I turn to the side, oh baby, oh baby.
She said: “The whole time I definitely was thinking, ‘Everyone knows, everyone can see”. When you’re pregnant, it’s a little bit harder to breathe, so it was hard doing all the choreography and singing a the same time.”
