It was less than two weeks ago when Beyonce debuted the music video for “Countdown”. I hated the song, and the video, which was… ridiculous, just in and of itself. But then two seconds after “Countdown” debuted, everyone was like, “Hey, Beyonce totally stole large chunks of the video from a famous Belgian choreographer.” And the Belgian choreographer was all, “Seriously, she did steal my sh-t.” And then everyone kind of forgot about it because a few days later, Beyonce “baby bump” collapsed as she sat down for an interview.
So now Beyonce is hoping for a do-over, I guess, because she’s releasing yet another new video, this time for “Love on Top”. I really liked this song when she performed at the VMAs (so much so that I downloaded it and it’s my new jam on the treadmill). So, I was already prepped to give the video the benefit of the doubt. And now that I’ve watched it… eh. It’s okay. It’s not mindblowing, but at least it’s not edited like everyone who worked on post-production was doing lines of coke every two seconds.
You know what I’m going to talk about, right?
THE HAT! The bump full of mystery! Now, considering that Bey debuted “Love on Top” as a single when she performed at the VMAs in September, it’s perfectly possible and probably that she filmed this video months ago. Like, maybe August or early September, back when her stomach was completely flat. But that goes back to the original question about how much she was padding it at the VMAs.
