Beyonce Reveals Battle With Tonsillitis + ‘Grown Woman’ Choreography in Mrs. Carter Show Tour Videos

Subscribe to PopCrush on

Perhaps in an effort to put those pesky pregnancy rumors to rest, Beyonce released two new videos from her Mrs. Carter Show world tour — and in one revealed that she had tonsillitis, which may help to explain her cancelled show in Belgium.

Before her concert in Zagreb, Croatia on April 17, Bey talked into a camera and dished on her illness. “I’m actually quite nervous because yesterday I was diagnosed with tonsillitis,” she admitted backstage. Smiling through her pain, she continued, “Hopefully I’ll give Croatia a great concert. I’m gonna fight as hard as I can and I know that God has my back and God will protect me.”

That may be a plausible excuse for her cancelled show — reportedly on doctor’s orders — in Antwerp, Belgium. Not everything is the result of a bun in the oven!

Despite her illness, she still put on an amazing show, evidenced by her pretty pipes belting out ‘Halo’ at the clip’s conclusion.

And because she’s a ‘Grown Woman’ and can do whatever she wants, she also started performing the track, which leaked this week, live. One of her tour staffers put it simply: “It’s a different Beyonce, it’s a very heartfelt Beyonce.” If she can sing with tonsillitis, you better believe it’s heartfelt!
