On the red carpet prior to the MTV Video Music Awards Sunday night, Beyoncé told photographers that she's pregnant. (A representative later confirmed the news to Us Weekly.) Later in the show, she performed an energetic rendition of her song "Love on Top" – and rubbed her belly at the end.

The singer, who's been married to Jay-Z for three years, had said on the June 27th broadcast of Piers Morgan Tonight that she always said she'd have a baby at age 30 – and she turns 30 on September 4th. No word yet on when she's due.

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
