Not exactly earth-shattering news. Beyonce hyped a big announcement to be made on Good Morning America on Monday, June 8, releasing a teaser video this past weekend and getting fans talking about just what the news might be.
The promotional clip, which made its way online in the late hours of Sunday evening, showed Beyonce telling a camera, “This is something I have to share with everyone.” The video inspired speculation that Queen Bey was finally releasing a studio album with her husband Jay Z, or announcing that she was pregnant again, making 3-year-old daughter Blue Ivy a big sister.
The actual reveal was far less shocking. The Grammy winner, 33, made her appearance on GMA to discuss her vegan diet. She took Marco Borges’ 22-Day Vegan Challenge in 2013, and has since stuck with the meal plan, shedding inches and pounds off of her famed figure.
“I am not naturally the thinnest woman,” she said in the recorded video on the morning show. “I have curves, I’m proud of my curves. I have struggled since a young age with diets. Finding something that actually works, that actually keeps the weight off has been difficult for me.”
The star, who added that her skin is “really firm and a lot tighter” since trying the challenge, said the program helped her get the weight “off fast” and keep it off. She used the GMA appearance to promote 22 Days Nutrition, her meal delivery service with Borges that was first announced in February.
While some foodies were seemingly pleased with Beyonce’s highly anticipated announcement, many members of the Beyhive were less than thrilled with the apparent letdown and took to Twitter to voice their frustration.
“They had the dramatic music in the Beyonce/GMA interview commercial and she’s announcing that she only eats grass lmao,” one Twitter user wrote. Another added, “This Beyoncé announcement had me dead, I almost made it to school an hour late because I thought this GMA announcement would’ve been big,” while a third chimed in, “What a joke. Beyonce uses Good Morning America to announce she’s vegan. Yikes.”
