First Look: “The Hunger Games” Teaser Trailer

Beyonce Announces She’s Pregnant At The MTV VMAs!


Announcing you’re pregnant on the cover of People? That’s for amateurs. If you’re Beyonce, you tell the world your womb is implanted with Jay-Z’s seed by unbuttoning your sequined jacket after performing “Love on Top,” at the MTV VMAs, rubbing your belly, and dramatically telling the crowd, “I want you to feel the love that’s growing inside me.” Just a little while before, Beyonce walked the red carpet in a voluminous caftan and reportedly told a reporter that she was expecting. Her rep confirmed the news, while husband Jay-Z looked positively gleeful as he cheered on her performance. I love these two and am psyched they’re makin’ babies together. Mazel tov!

My best friend in college was a Bio-Chem major. Now she is a fancy pants nurse and saves lives and s**t and I get to say I knew her when she was a student spouting random facts about chemical compounds and stuff. I wish I was a science nerd and could build a time machine so I could go back to 1998 and give her one of the Bio-Chem inspired home decor items featured in this slideshow. Alas, I am but a right-brained writer, so I shall just send her that sentiment along with a link.
