Most of us probably won’t remember the details of the 2011 VMAs except for one iconic moment.
Beyonce performed “Love On Top” and shocked the world when she revealed her baby bump to the world.
It was an epic performance and in pure icon fashion, Beyoncé dropped her mic and unbuttoned her jacket to rub her belly.
Well today, for the first time ever her mom Ms. Tina Lawson is sharing some behind-the-scenes details about what it took to ensure that when Bey shared Blue with the world, it would be a smooth reveal right to the very end.
Read what Ms. Tina shared below:
Well this was a stressful night, at least it began that way!!! It wound up turning into a beautiful night but two hours before the performance we realized that the pants that I had gotten made were too tight and uncomfortable the panel that I had put in them was not stretchy enough.
So Two hours before the performance I was at A Pea in the Pod Maternity shop.
I bought two sizes in maternity pants but wound up taking the panel off of one of them and putting it in the ones that I had made!
Because the shape of the store-bought ones was not right! Thank God it worked.
And when she opened that jacket and showed her stomach it was the biggest relief ever for myself, Ty Hunter and Tim White.
We didn’t have to keep the secret anymore. I didn’t have to design with the first priority being to camouflage the growing belly!
Like Glastonbury, And even more stressful a live whole show at the Historical Roseland Ballroom!
Where we held our breath during the show because you could see her belly every once in a while !!!
It was the best feeling in the world to her show the whole world that tummy❤️❤️
