Surprising everyone at the MTV Video Music Awards on Aug. 28, superstar couple Beyoncé, 30, and Jay-Z, 41, announced their long-awaited collaboration: a baby. Following her live performance of ”Love on Top,” Beyoncé unbuttoned her sequined jacket to reveal an unmistakably pregnant middle. The good news has everyone talking, but how will it affect the pop star’s future projects? On the musical front, the next single off her album 4 has yet to be determined. Several videos are currently in the can, though, including one for the song ”Party,” which features appearances by sister Solange Knowles and former Destiny’s Child groupmate Kelly Rowland. (Its premiere date is still TBA.) But the baby bump may have slightly bumped plans for a Warner Bros. remake of the musical A Star Is Born. The studio confirmed that Beyoncé is still attached to the Clint Eastwood-helmed project, saying that they will work with her schedule and start when she is ready. If anything, waiting for her new star to be born will give the production more time to cast its missing male lead.
