Beyoncé's publicist has shot down rampant internet rumors that the singer is faking her pregnancy. The rumors stem mainly from an appearance on the Australian talk show Sunday Night HD in which her stomach appeared to fold when she sat down, suggesting that she was wearing a prosthetic baby bump. This led to further speculation that the R&B star and her husband Jay-Z had hired a surrogate or were secretly planning to adopt. Yvette Noel-Schure, the singer's representative, sent ABC News a statement insisting that the prosthetic rumors were "stupid, ridiculous and false."

Beyoncé revealed on Sunday Night HD that she and Jay-Z expect their child to be born in February. "I just feel like it's time and I'm very grateful that God has blessed me with the biggest gift any human can have," she said on the show. "If there's any time, right now is the time, and I'm so happy."

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
