Beyoncé talks performing while pregnant
Beyoncé recently promoted her new “Live at Roseland” DVD during a Q & A in New York City.
Although it seemed no one caught on, the “Who Run the World” singer was actually pregnant during that Roseland performance.
How does she do it?
“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, but I just got my strength from all the love from the fans,” she told the Associated Press.
Beyoncé also took the time to thank her super fans.
“I appreciate all of the support,” she said, joking that sometimes they might need to tone it down.
