Root Beer, chicken wings, pickle juice, donuts, mac and cheese. Pregnant women have all kinds of odd cravings, but in an interview slated to air on Friday night on “20/20,” Beyoncé told interviewer Katie Couric that she hasn’t had those typical late-night urges during her pregnancy.
“Not really anything crazy,” B told Couric. “I’ve read that I like ketchup on everything,” she added, saying that the rumor is not true. And when Couric tried to confirm other Internet whispers about what the singer is allegedly making hubby Jay-Z rush out to the corner bodega for at 2 in the morning, Beyoncé said the wildest one is also not true.
“I also read that you like ice cream with hot chili sauce,” Couric said. “Yeah, that’s very strange,” responded Beyoncé, who was dressed in flowing purple pants with a white pattern, a black leather jacket and black pregnancy top with a subtle blue design. “Is that true?” Couric pressed.
“No it is not. I was on a plane and the flight attendant came and was like, ‘I have your hot sauce and pickles and bananas.’ I was like, ‘That is absolutely disgusting, what are you doing?’ He’s like, ‘I read it on the Internet.’ ”
When Couric asked the question everyone wants to know, whether she should get the singer a pink or blue baby gift , Beyoncé smiled and put her finger up to her mouth and gave a coy, “hmmm.”
In another segment, Couric and Beyoncé take a stroll past New York’s Roseland Ballroom, where the pop icon played the four shows earlier this year that became the subject of her just-released “Live at Roseland” DVD . “When I was here it was raining and there were thousands of people in their coats and umbrellas waiting outside for hours,” she said of the summertime shows. “Which always feels a little overwhelming because I’m like, ‘I hope I give them enough.’ But everyone had a great time.”
