If there’s one thing we love more than Beyoncé, it’s cute French boys. And our favorite gay blog Queerty is all over this awesome clip of two hotties named Bertrand and Mattieu, lip-synching and dancing their French asses off to “Crazy In Love.” It’s kind of the best thing ever — and proof that Bey is fabulous in any language!

Back when Beyonce announced her pregnancy at the MTV VMAs at the end of August, the singer was said to be three months along, putting her due date towards the end of February. In the video I posted on Monday, Beyonce holds up that day’s newspaper dated for September 23 and says that she’s six months pregnant, making her further along in her pregnancy than initially suspected. Now the tabloids are crowing that Bey is due at Christmastime. Except that’s wrong too, because it’s based on the common misestimation (I’m guilty of this myself) that a pregnancy is nine months long, when it’s actually 10. If Beyonce was six months pregnant at the end of September, that means she was 24 weeks along, with another 16 weeks to go; that means Babyonce is due at the end of January. Then again, I’m pretty sure Beyonce and husband Jay-Z don’t really want any of us to know when she’s due and could be leaking the conflicting information themselves to throw us off the trail. Who knows? Maybe Babyonce won’t be chillin’ in her Swarovski crystal-encrusted basinet until April. Or maybe she popped out a month ago and is napping as we speak. Or maybe we should all stop playing armchair gynecologist and just wait and see. But send your gift soon, just incase. [WWTDD]
Ugh, the Grammys: so, so, so boring and mainstream in their nominations with the occasional WTF?! thrown in for good measure. The 2012 nominees, announced last night, are no exception. Adele was deservedly nominated for all the major awards and will likely take them all home. Meanwhile, Beyonce’s 4, which was arguably one of her best albums ever, was snubbed, as was Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass.” Jay-Z and Kanye West got some love for their Watch the Throne collab, while Lady Gaga’s third consecutive Album of the Year nod has her tied for the record with The Beatles. And then there was something about a band called Skrillex making me feel old. Those are the noms in a nutshell, with more of my thoughts displayed in the Approval Matrix at left. Here‘s a list of more nominees.

There’s nary a baby bump to be found in Beyonce’s epic “Countdown” video, but as we can see in this behind-the-scenes video, B was six months pregnant at the time of filming. I love the way she says, “Oh, baby!” over and over. So adorable. Is it weird that I’m so excited she and Jay-Z are spawning? Do I need to get a life? Maybe.
It seems like Beyoncé only gets fiercer with every passing year. If you can’t get enough of Bey’s powerful voice and mesmerizing performances, you’ll be thankful for her new DVD, “Live At Roseland: The Elements Of 4,” due out November 29. This deluxe, two-disc set features the complete Roseland concert, bonus offstage footage, a 20-page booklet and a video anthology that includes seven videos from her latest album, 4. (You can check out the DVD trailer here!) As if that weren’t enough Beyoncé to be grateful for, the concert documentary is filled with never-before seen footage and stories of her personal journey from eager five-year-old music fan to fierce entertainer and mother-to-be who is in control of every aspect of her life and career.
