Queen B in The City: Beyonce' Talks Pregnancy at DVD Premiere

AP NEW YORK — It's tough to keep a pregnancy a secret when you're in the public eye, and for a while, Beyoncé thought the jig was up.

"The whole time I definitely was thinking, 'Everyone knows, everyone can see,'" said the singer before the screening of her new concert DVD Sunday in New York.

It became particularly difficult for her to hide the growing baby bump when the Grammy-winner performed for four nights to sold-out crowds at New York's Roseland Theater in August.

"When you're pregnant, it's a little bit harder to breathe, so it was hard doing all the choreography and singing at the same time," said the 30-year-old singer in an onstage interview.

Fans who didn't get a chance to catch "The Intimate Nights" shows - what Beyoncé said was her last concert performance of the year - can get a behind-the-scenes look in her new "Live at Roseland" DVD, available exclusively at Walmart this week.

Via MTVThe fans aren't the only ones having a ball during Jay-Z and Kanye West'sWatch the Throne Tour. A hoarse Jay walked the red carpet of the GQ Men of the Year party in Hollywood on Thursday, and he could hardly contain his excitement.

"We're having a great time," Hov told MTV News' Jim Cantiello. "The most important thing is that the people that are coming to the concert are leaving there thrilled and we're having an amazing time. As you see, I don't have a voice," he laughed.

The tour, which kicked off last month in Atlanta, has been running for less than a month but has been met with rave reviews on each outing. Noted for its dual elevated stages and artsy video montages, Hov and 'Ye's grandiose WTTrun has been one worthy of the royal rap duo. Aside from their Throne cuts, Jay and Kanye have pulled from their respective solo catalogs, performing early hits like "Where I'm From" and "Through the Wire," as well as new favorites like "Empire State of Mind" and "Runaway."

Jay-Z Named GQ's Man of The Year (Again); King of The Year

Jay has been named GQ's, Man of The Year (King of The Year) and is featured in their December issue.  Jay has one of four different covers, which hits newsstands on November 22.  Check out an excerpt from his cover story below.

Via GQ:  They're waiting for him at the gallery. They're lined up in the foyer, as if for inspection. Ealan Wingate, who runs the place, nutty-professorial in a bow tie and blazer, stands with some gallery staffers, young women in heels and complicated blouses, their demeanor poised and professional, their eyes flashing OMG, OMG as the gallery doors open to let in the hard fall wind off the Hudson and also Shawn Corey Carter, better known from the Marcy Houses to Marrakech as Jay-Z. He's wearing Timberlands, just-this-side-of-baggy jeans, a plain dark blue hoodie, and a look of regal amusement. Like, For me? He shakes everybody's hand, introduces himself as "Jay."

Jay is among the first rappers to name-drop his contemporary-art holdings in the same you-ain't-up-on-this tone that other MCs employ when discussing their watches. He shouts out art-world superdealer Larry Gagosian in his verse on "That's My Bitch," from Watch the Throne, the collaborative album he and Kanye West released a few months ago. So we're at one of Larry's places, the warehouse-sized Gagosian Gallery on West 24th Street.

B's been playing the happy wife and mommy-to-be in Miami these past few days.  Jay and Ye's, Watch the Throne Tour hit Fort Lauderdale over the weekend and hits MIA tonight.  The Carters, along with Juelz and Momma Tina were snapped enjoying their family time, before the big show.
