Grammy-winning singer Beyonce is not letting the media outlets drive her crazy and recently gave her take on gossip suggesting she may be faking her own pregnancy.
Speaking with renowned television personality Katie Couric, Bey took on the fake preggers reports.
"You know, there are certain things that's so far [from the truth], it doesn't even upset you. My mother? She's like, 'Nobody's talking about my grandbaby! My grandbaby's not ever here yet. I'm like, 'Calm down mom, it's okay. It's really silly.' 'I don't like it!,' and I'm like, 'Calm down.' So my mom is really protective and so is my sister. But I'm cool and it's so ridiculous and over the top." ("20/20")
In mid-October, Beyonce's representative slammed rumors claiming the 30 year-old star was faking her pregnancy.

Speculation of a possible hoax emerged online this fall following an Australian pop culture talk show interview.
During a recent interview with Australian talk show "Sunday Night HD," the singer's burgeoning belly puzzled viewers when it appeared to have collapsed in size as she slowly sat down in her seat. The clip has sparked a frenzy of speculations, ranging from rumors that Beyonce is wearing a prosthetic bump to claims that she is faking the pregnancy entirely. Another explanation for the bizarre sight could be blamed on the material of the singer's dress. (New York Daily News)
Recently, Bey discussed fearing if the entire world she was a mother-to-be prior to a late August announcement.
It's tough to keep a pregnancy a secret when you're in the public eye, and for a while, Beyonce thought the jig was up. "The whole time I definitely was thinking, 'Everyone knows, everyone can see,'" said the singer before the screening of her new concert DVD Sunday in New York. It became particularly difficult for her to hide the growing baby bump when the Grammy-winner performed for four nights to sold-out crowds at New York's Roseland Theater in August. "When you're pregnant, it's a little bit harder to breathe, so it was hard doing all the choreography and singing at the same time," said the 30-year-old singer in an onstage interview. (Billboard)
