Beyonce Calls Faked Pregnancy Rumors 'So Stupid'

'It wasn't hurtful, it was just crazy,' she tells People in the magazine's Most Beautiful issue.

Back in October, Beyoncé shot down a rumor that she was wearing a fake baby bump after an appearance on an Australian talk show. When Beyoncé sat down for the interview, it appeared that the bump deflated, prompting many to wonder if the pop singer was really pregnant or faking it.

Now, months after the birth of her daughter, Blue Ivy, Beyoncé is talking to People magazine, about the gossip. "That was crazy. It wasn't hurtful, it was just crazy," she says in the Most Beautiful issue, in which she was named the world's Most Beautiful Woman, reports. "[I thought] 'Where did they come up with this?' It was a fabric that folded — does fabric not fold? Oh my gosh, so stupid."

The chitchat didn't just bother Beyoncé. Her mother also opened up about the allegations in the interview, adding, "I thought it was very unfair and very cruel that someone would think that someone would be that diabolical to keep up a charade like that for nine months. As a mother, it was painful for me to hear the crazy rumors. And I even had people ask me, which was so ridiculous."

In the magazine, out now, Queen B addressed not only the baby bump controversy, but also her commitment to being sexy, even at nine months. "I committed to the end and wore my kitten heels. It makes me laugh thinking about it," she said. "But after many hours of labor, I didn't care how I looked. It was all about the miracle that God gave me — the opportunity to deliver a human being."
