Most pregnant women crave really weird things when they’re pregnant. But Beyonce obviously isn’t like most women, and she says she doesn’t have any strange pregnancy cravings, contrary to recent reports.
“I read that I like ketchup on everything … Not true,” she tells Katie Couric in her upcoming interview with “20/20” set to air tonight.
“I also read that you like ice cream with hot chili sauce,” Couric said. “Yeah, that’s very strange,” responded Beyonce, who is due to give birth to her first child with husband Jay-Z soon. “Is that true?” Couric pressed.
Beyonce responded, “No it is not. I was on a plane and the flight attendant came and was like, ‘I have your hot sauce and pickles and bananas.’ I was like, ‘That is absolutely disgusting, what are you doing?’ He’s like, ‘I read it on the Internet!'”
Beyonce also addressed the ridiculous rumors claiming that her baby bump was fake, and explained why she hasn’t revealed a solid due date. “There are certain things that are so far [out], it doesn’t even upset you … The truth is, it’s safety. I just want to make sure I can have a peaceful day. And I want to make sure my child is protected.”
The singer also explained what she did and how she felt when she left the stage at the VMAs after her performance in which she revealed her pregnancy. “I just felt free. I really did, because I’d been holding the most exciting thing in for so long, and I just felt like, Wow, now I can enjoy and now I can just experience this the way that every woman should … I went straight off the stage and just cried. I hugged my mom, I hugged Jay and just cried. It was a beautiful day.”
When Couric asked the big question, whether Beyonce is having a boy or a girl, as “announced” by Kelly Rowland, Beyonce smiled and coyly said “hmmmmm” as she put her finger up to her mouth.
The full interview airs tonight at 10 PM on ABC!
