“I want you to feel the love growing inside of me,” Beyoncé said before performing her love song, “Love on Top,” off her Billboard 200 No. 1 album, “4.”
Less than two hours before hitting the stage, Bey’ announced her pregnancy at the 2011 MTV VMAs black carpet. “OMG Beyonce just made a huge announcement on the #vma carpet! #baby!!!!! twitpic.com/6cva18,” MTV tweeted.
Bey’ kept the rigorous choregraphy to a minimum, performing a mid-tempo dance number in a Dolce&Gabbana hot pink sequined tux. Amongst the audience who rose to two step was Kanye West and Lady Gaga, arm and arm. “Beyoncé is a beautiful soul. There’s no one like Beyoncé,” Lady Gaga said, alongside Britney Spears, when introducing Beyoncé.
Queen B closed her set by opening her ravishing tux to rub her belly, as she did earlier on the black carpet. As Bey’ smiled, the cameras zoomed in on a cheesing husband and father to be, Jay-Z.
