Beyoncé on Her Miscarriage: 'The Saddest Thing I've Ever Been Through'

CelebritiesDirt Bag

In HBO’s upcoming Beyoncéumentary Life Is But A Dream, Beyoncé publicly discusses her pre-Blue Ivy miscarriage for the first time, which Jay-Z referenced in his song “Glory” (recorded days after Blue Ivy’s birth).

“About two years ago, I was pregnant for the first time. And I heard the heartbeat, which was the most beautiful music I ever heard in my life. I picked out names. I envisioned what my child would look like… I was feeling very maternal. I flew back to New York to get my check up – and no heartbeat. Literally the week before I went to the doctor, everything was fine, but there was no heartbeat. [And then] I went into the studio and wrote the saddest song I’ve ever written in my life, and it was actually the first song I wrote for my album. And it was the best form of therapy for me.”

She also compares being pregnant to being in love (“You are so open. You are so overjoyed. There’s no words that can express having a baby growing inside of you, so of course you want to scream it out and tell everyone”). GAH, so sad. 🙁 But, as anyone with a magazine subscription and/or a pulse is aware, her story has a happy ending. [Us Weekly, Rolling Stone]

On a lighter note, a self-confessed tipsy Jennifer Lawrence (the producers gave her tequila shots!) told Jimmy Kimmel that her boobs are two slightly different sizes. I think that’s normal; mine are. That’s normal, right? Can someone Tweet that question at Judy Blume for me?

“I just went to the doctor today, I got a chest X-ray of my lungs and discovered that my breasts are uneven. I was like standing there with these doctors and they’re like looking at my lungs and I just couldn’t-it felt like an elephant in the room-and I was like, ‘Are my breasts uneven?’ And they were just kind of, like, stifled and uncomfortable, obviously. So I kept thinking, ‘Well, I’m gonna dig myself out of this hole by bringing it up again.’ So he was like, ‘All right, our radiologist will get back to you about your lungs.’ And I was like, ‘And my breasts.'”

Judy! Are our boobies normal? Halp! [E!]

OK, I will admit that I am unclear on why Kristin Chenoweth needs a service dog on a flight other than the fact that she is a Very Important Diva. Regardless, she was chastised for bringing the pup, Madeleine, on an American Airlines plane without proper paperwork, and she burst into tears. A rep from American Airlines says: “We have been in touch with Ms. Chenoweth to offer our apologies for the misunderstanding. We refunded the [$125] cabin pet charge as soon as we realized the mistake. We hope she will consider flying American again in the future.”

Hey, never mind, TMZ misreported.


Esteemed douche nozzle John Mayer tells Rolling Stone that he’s happy with Katy Projectile-Bra Perry since we were all so obviously concerned. “I haven’t had any trouble in my private life at all. It’s been … I mean, I’m quite happy. I’m happy in all aspects of my life. I’m very happy in all aspects of my life.” But how is his racist penis doing? You can’t just mention that in one Rolling Stone interview and not follow up in another! [NYDN]
