Beyonce is not pregnant according to her mother

Singer could still be set for Glastonbury headline appearence

Beyonce‘s mother Tina Knowles has said that her daughter is not pregnant, despite a recent claim in the US that she was expecting her first child.

A celebrity magazine ran a story earlier this month claiming the singer was expecting, but Tina quashed the rumour by speaking on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on US TV.

“No, no. It’s not true,” she said. “Not right now. I’m looking forward to it. With all the rumours by now I should have five or six grandchildren.”

The denial reignites rumours that Beyonce could headline the Glastonbury festival next June.

Prince, Coldplay and U2 are also among those heavily rumoured to be playing Glastonbury 2011.
