Beyonce and Jay-Z’s offspring doesn’t even have a name yet, but it was the indisputable breakout star of Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards, upstaging everyone, even Katy Perry’s win for video of the year.

Perry, who had the most nominations coming into the show with 10, came away with three moonman trophies, including video of the year for the inspirational clip “Firework.”

“I feel like I’m doing something right when I sing that song,” said Perry, conservatively dressed in a cotton-candy pink jacket, a skirt and something best described as a Green Bay Packers cheesehead decoration.

But the night’s big news came from Beyonce, who stole the show before it even began when she announced on the black carpet that after more than three years of marriage, the dazzling couple had produced the ultimate all-star collaboration. Dressed in a loose-fitting, off-the-shoulder red gown, she clutched the baby bump that so many celeb-watchers had been predicting since the two wed.

Later, Beyonce performed “Love on Top,” and if Twitter hadn’t already spread the news, her outfit gave clues to her impending motherhood; instead of her typical sexy outfits, she dressed in conservative spangled tux.

Beyonce didn’t utter a word about the pregnancy, but ended the number by taking off her jacket and rubbing her swollen belly.

Michele Bachmann’s book will hit stores in November

NEW YORK — Michele Bachmann has a book deal.

Sentinel, a conservative imprint of Penguin Group (USA), announced Monday that the Republican presidential candidate’s memoir will arrive in November and already has been completed. The book, reports of which first circulated in June, is currently untitled. Sentinel declined comment on reports that Wall Street Journal columnist John Fund co-wrote the memoir.

As a member of the House of Representatives, Bachmann is not allowed to receive an advance against royalties.

According to Sentinel, Bachmann will “share previously untold stories” about her private life, “including her roles as a tax attorney, a wife, a mother of five and a foster mother of 23.” Virtually all of the Republican candidates have published books, a standard for modern presidential campaigns.

Ex-‘Housewife’ faces limit

LOS ANGELES — A judge has limited the damages actress Nicollette Sheridan may receive if she wins a wrongful termination lawsuit filed over her ouster from “Desperate Housewives.”

A ruled Monday said that Sheridan can seek damages for only one year’s pay on the show, not for the entire length of the series. The show is entering its eighth and final season.

Sheridan sued the show’s network, ABC, and “Housewives” creator and executive producer Marc Cherry in April 2010, claiming he struck her during a fight in September 2008.

EL CENTRO, Calif. — Prince Harry – a British Army captain – will train at two U.S. military bases in California and Arizona as part of an Apache attack helicopter course conducted by his country’s Defense Ministry.
