11. Beyoncé faked her pregnancy

In 2011 a simple piece of folded fabric sent the internet into overdrive. But it wasn’t just any piece of fabric – it was part of the dress that Beyoncé wore during her appearance on Australian TV show Sunday Night. Specifically, the superstar sparked rumors that her pregnancy was fake when her baby bump appeared to “deflate” while sitting down for an interview. And while Beyoncé herself later claimed that her clothing was to blame, many still believe that her daughter Blue Ivy was born via surrogate.

Well, despite its almost indecipherable lyrics, The Kingsmen’s cover of R&B standard “Louie Louie” was deemed to be filled with obscenities once slowed down. However, the eventual FBI report found no evidence to back up these claims; it’s worth noting, though, that Kingsmen drummer Lynn Easton later admitted that he did use the F-word just before the one-minute mark.
