Rumors about Beyonce Knowles and Sean “Jay-Z” Carter choosing Oprah Winfrey as their newborn daughter’s godmother gurgled through the Internet like a baby on a rap record, but now we know the truth. Just 24 hours later, Oprah’s BFF Gayle King put those rumors to rest — she was the first person close to the situation to respond with a big ol’ HECKS NO.
“Let me just say, if (that report is) true, it is news to her,” Gayle said on CBS’s The Early Show on Friday, January 27.
Well, as outrageous and made-for-Hollywood as Beyonce and Jay-Z's rumored baby godmother choice might sound, it could still happen. Is Oprah in the running to be America’s Next Top Godmother?
If so, that might peeve a lot of the couple's famous friends, including obvious contenders Kelly Rowland, Hollywood bestie Gwyneth Paltrow, and Solange!
Besides, isn’t “Godmother of Pop Star Spawn” a step down from her longstanding “Queen of the World” title?
