When it comes to Beyoncé, conspiracy theories abound — and damn it, it's fun to speculate. But for the first time since she gave birth to the littlest Illuminati Blue Ivy, Bey is willing to address those who said she was never pregnant to begin with.

In an interview with People, Beyoncé didn't mince words about the rumors.

That was crazy. It wasn't hurtful, it was just crazy. [I thought] ‘Where did they come up with this?'

Yes, where did they come up with that?

Well, there was that weird incident where Bey's baby bump appeared to deflate on Australian television, leading credence to the whole "she's wearing a prosthetic" conspiracy. At the time, Beyoncé's publicist called the rumors "foolish," but she never really explained what made it look like her client's belly was shrinking in front of a live audience.

Not to worry — Beyoncé has an answer for that, too.

It was a fabric that folded — does fabric not fold? Oh my gosh, so stupid.

I don't know, Beyoncé: does it?

I mean, yes, it does. We can probably take Beyoncé at her word here, rather than assume a well-orchestrated and far-reaching conspiracy to make the singer look pregnant while a surrogate carried her baby. Or we can keep making wild accusations and calmly wait for Blue Ivy to take control of the world.
