Here’s What Beyoncé’s Pregnancy Photo Shoot Is Secretly Telling Us
Beyoncé’s pregnancy announcement yesterday, and the delightful deet that she’s expecting twins, set the internet on fire (natch!). But this left us wondering not only how this would affect her highly anticipated Coachella performance, but whether there may have been a hidden message behind Queen Bey’s big news. And it looks like we weren’t the only ones who were spotting added layers of meaning to this highly stylized maternity photoshoot. Check out some of these totally plausible theories about Beyoncé’s now (in)famous pics.
If you think these theories are all just silly fun, we first need to consider the fact that the soon-to-be mama-of-three didn’t do anything this elaborate when she was expecting Blue Ivy. On top of that, the timing of this news has fans thinking there’s more to these pics than at first meets the eye.
What on earth is Beyoncé doing? Who is art directing these shoots and isn't it perfect timing? I smell conspiracy theory.

@Beyoncé pregnancy photos make her look like the Virgin Mary bringing us saviors. Hopefully they are are. And their birth melts trumps face.

In another attempt to relate politics to Star Wars:
Trump is Vader
Bannon is Palpatine
Beyonce's twins are Luke&Leia and will save us all!

Our undergarments might have taken a backseat in 2020, but with a new year upon us, we're feeling inspired to reprioritize our most intimate clothing layer — especially in time for Valentine's Day. Because hey, what better way to kickstart a season of self-love than by treating yourself to a confidence-boosting set of lingerie?
