Beyonce Pregnancy Announcement at VMAs, Brad Pitt Saves an Extra's Life in Barcelona, and Derek Jeter and Minka Kelly Break Up


Beyonce's Pregnancy Announcement Steals the Show at MTV VMAs

Sunday’s MTV VMAs were chock full of the usual entertainment, craziness, and WTF moments we’ve all come to expect from MTV.  Lady beyonce baby bump vmasGaga’s male alter ego was annoying and Ralph Macchio-esque, Nicki Minaj’s outfit was confusing, and, of course, artists won some Moonman awards.  And we can’t forget the tribute to Amy Winehouse complete with Bruno Mars’ version of “Valerie.”  (That had to make the cut here for obvious reasons!)

But, what many are saying stole the whole show was Beyonce’s baby announcement.

Yep, that’s right, the former Destiny’s Child singer and her rapper hubby Jay Z are expecting and she chose to announce it live at the VMAs!

While walking the black carpet during the event’s pre-show, Beyonce told photogs she had a surprise—giving a hint by holding her belly.

Later, the singer took the stage in a conservative, sparkly tux—a departure from her usual sexy style.  After her performance she unbuttoned her jacket to show the audience her baby bump.  Awwww!

It isn’t yet known if they’re having a boy or a girl.  But, we can be sure that, if he or she is anything like Beyonce, it’ll be one beautiful, talented kid!

Brad Pitt Saves an Extra's Life in Barcelona During Filming of Zombie Movie

Lately it seems like stars are straying from acting to become real-life superheroes.  Kate Winslet made headlines by carrying Richard Branson’s mother out of a burning house.  And we reported last week that Ryan Gosling stepped in to stop a fight on the streets of NYC.

Now it looks like Brad Pitt wanted to get in on the action because he, too, is being given props for saving someone’s life.

Pitt was in Barcelona in the middle of shooting a scene for an upcoming zombie movie - entitled "World War Z."  In the scene, a scared group is running away from the flesh eaters, causing quite a stampede.  One of the extras fell, running the risk of being trampled by the other extras.

But Pitt, in true super hero form, rushed to her aid, picking her up and carrying her to safety.

WTG, Brad!

Ok, Hollywood, who’s next??

Derek Jeter and Minka Kelly Break Up

Derek Jeter and Minka Kelly have split!  That’s right, ladies, Jeter is once again a free agent in the dating game.

The couple, who have been the subject of engagement rumors a bunch of times, ended their relationship after three years.

While representatives from both are keeping pretty tight-lipped about the reason for the split, it is being reported that the breakup was amicable.

I guess this leaves us free to speculate what happened.  Maybe their schedules conflicted too much, considering he’s smack dab in the middle of baseball season and she’s in Miami shooting the upcoming “Charlie’s Angels” TV remake.  Maybe there was cheating.  Maybe they just don’t like each other any more.

Regardless, considering the high profile exes both have, neither should have any problem moving on.
