Beyonce goes mod for her new 'Countdown' video

October 7, 2011 | 12:51 pm


Beyonce may be pregnant, but there's no slowing down this overachiever: The diva has released a new music video for her track "Countdown."

While Beyonce has been rocking a baby bump courtesy of husband Jay-Z, she's still fully capable of delivering an intricate, stylized clip that's part Natalie Wood a la "West Side Story" and part Twiggy, with a healthy dose of Audrey Hepburn.

In other words, it's so fantastic it borders on annoying, as it appears there's nothing this pregnant superstar can't do

A closer listen to the song, from her latest album "4," reveals that at the time she wrote it she was already deep into family planning. "Still the one I do this for / I'm trying to make us three / from the two / you're still the one," she sings in the chorus.

The video, below, will likely be the most dips, dives and hair tossing you'll see from the star until she delivers. But that's just a guess. It's Beyonce after all -- we wouldn't be surprised if her sonogram turns out to be a miniature version of "Single Ladies."
