Beyoncé’s Pregnant!, NY Subway Running in Time for Commute, Nigerian Bombing, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s ‘Half of a Yellow Sun’

Beyoncé showed up everyone — well, except Lady Gaga who turned the VMA’s into a one man Broadway review — by arriving on MTV’s red carpet pregnant and not doing any interviews. Can you say boss? Then she performed that Michael Jackson knock-off track “Love On Top,” not what anyone really wanted to hear like “Countdown” or “End of Time” and ended the performance by showing off her bump as Jay-Z saluted her. Yes, the Jay salute was odd. [MTV]

NY subways are running on time folks. Sorry. [NYT]

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s new book “Half of a Yellow Sun.” Sounds like it’s good. [Feministing]
