Beyonce and Jay Z kissed onstage at the 2014 VMAs on Aug. 24, but an expert tells HollywoodLife.com that the couple’s body language shows they’re not truly ‘connected.’
Beyonce, 32, and Jay Z, 44, used the MTV Video Music Awards to show the world that the divorce rumors aren’t true — but was their PDA sincere? An expert tells us that despite their stage smooch, it looks like Bey and Jay have “no joy reflected to each other.”
Beyonce & Jay Z: Expert Says Their Marriage Tension Showed During VMA Kiss
Jay Z planted a big kiss on Beyonce when he presented her with the Video Vanguard Award on Aug. 24. Despite the couple’s sweet-looking kiss on the lips — and a cameo by the adorable Blue Ivy, 2, Dr. Lillian Glass tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY what the couple’s body language reveals.
“Her body language looks very stiff,” Dr. Glass says about Beyonce. “And it’s like they use Blue Ivy as a prop to show that their marriage is in tact but their language shows stiffness and there is no touching.”
Dr. Glass says Beyonce’s happiness is coming from her daughter. “If it wasn’t for Blue Ivy she would not be having such a genuine smile. She just loves Blue Ivy and all of her attention is focused on her.”
Dr. Glass continues to explain how the couple’s body language toward one another shows a secret tension.
“I think that the glue is Blue Ivy because she reflects both their joy, there is no joy reflected to each other. When he is talking into the microphone, she doesn’t lean towards him, it is clear to the naked eye that something is going on deep down. Even though they are trying to spin that it is a happy family, the body language shows that there is still tension between Beyonce and Jay Z because all of their focus is on the baby,” she explains.
Dr. Glass says the kiss seems like a “contrived” move. “She is holding on to the baby, and also she is pulling away from him, her head looks stiff, her body looks stiff, she is not leaning into him. It’s too contrived, and I think everyone can see that,” she explains.
