Beyoncé took a break from her “Mrs. Carter World Tour” to lend her support to a star-studded charity concert at London’s Twickenham Stadium Saturday night (June 1) and performed in a stunning black body suit. Oh yeah… she still doesn’t look pregnant.

The 31-year-old singer was at the center of a media storm after E! News reported that she was carrying her second child during her grueling 65-date tour.

The story turned out to be false even though the gossip site claimed it had confirmed the report with “multiple sources.” TheImproper was one of the only sites to debunk the story before husband Jay-Z made it official in an email to a New York radio station.

The fund-raising concert is part of “Chime For Change,” which supports education, health and justice for women around the world.

What Madonna Said: “I keep telling people I want to start a revolution, but my revolution doesn’t involve bloodshed and violence. My revolution starts with education. My revolution is about achieving a higher level of consciousness, but this cannot start without education. We cannot change this world, nor begin to treat each other with human dignity, without an education. Let tonight be the beginning of this revolution because education is not a luxury, it is a basic human right. I invite you all to join my revolution of love. Join me tonight. The revolution of love starts here. I believe my girls out there deserve the best education. They deserve the best in health. And I believe in justice for my girls everywhere.

“I am really happy that so many amazing artists and presenters have come together to support Chime For Change on June 1,” Beyonce said.

“Our goal is to have a great time together while we unite and strengthen the voices of girls and women around the world.”

Beyoncé was one of the headliners at the 2013 Sound of Change concert, which drew performers such as Madonna, John Legend, Jennifer Lopez, Florence Welch, Timbaland and UK singer .

The event also drew A-List celebrities that included Salma Hayek, Freida Pinto, Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Thandie Newton, Jessica Chastain and James Franco.

Madonna raised eyebrows because of her puffy-looking face. She urged the audience to launch a “revolution of love.”
