You know how they say that if you break your leg it seems like everyone second person you see is also trotting around on a fractured limb? Well, the same goes for pregnancy. Suddenly babies and bellies are everywhere! (And never have I paid such detailed attention to the brand of stroller strolling by.)
Although here in my fair city of Toronto I get to see plenty of pregnant ladies live on the street, I still find myself searching for images of artists who are with child.
There's the standard red carpet shot:
And the handing out awards after the red carpet photo op:
But it's a bit harder to find these gals preggers and doing what they do best. This is why I hold dear my memory of M.I.A. rocking the stage at the Grammys, ready to give birth at any minute! You can watch a clip of the performance on YouTube!
(Her outfit shall be dealt with in another post where I address the serious lack of maternity attire available in T.O.)
I had heard there was a clip of Dee Dee Bridgewater performing avec bébé. I couldn't find it but I did stumble upon this inspiring image from Ms. Bridgewater. Talk about melding your life and your art.
I doubt that I'll be posing for a similar photo shoot but I'll be sure to post some pics from my next concert with belly. In the meantime if you know of any beautiful photos or youtube clips with musical mamas please let me know!
