If the rate of stories about Beyonce and Jay-Z’s blessed babe continues, we might have to start an entirely new blog devoted to Blue Ivy Carter. But in the meantime, here’s a little roundup of the latest B.I.C. headlines we love and loathe:
» NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg didn’t exactly confirm rumors about the special treatment Bey got at Lenox Hill Hospital, but at a press conference on Tuesday, he defended the practice of letting rich people upgrade hospital services. “If [the hospital] got paid a lot of money and it let them provide services to other people who don’t have insurance or can’t afford it, I’m not so sure it’s a bad thing. … I don’t think you should keep people from seeing their babies, or whatever, but have different services for people who are full-paying patients.”
» The horrifying theory that Blue Ivy is some kind of reference to the devil was perpetuated by vandals who wrote, “Beyonce had her baby. Satan is on Earth” on the sign of a Beulah Hill Baptist Church in West End, North Carolina church, according to TMZ. Speculation that her name is an Illuminati reference still abounds, too. We just think it’s pretty!
» While the New York Post says that there isn’t a bidding war going on for pics of Blue Ivy yet — but seriously, we’re tired of running Beyonce pregnant photos here, so a snap of mom and baby would be great, thanks — the paper quoted experts saying that IF they sold exclusive photos, they’d go for about $2 million. But we’re placing our bets on Jay posting it on his own Life and Times site, where he dropped “Glory” on Monday.
» The New York Daily News took all sorts of pics of the luxury van that took mom and baby home yesterday. They also list all of the gifts Blue has reportedly received so far, including a Bob Marley onesie and $300 cashmere blankets from Kelly Rowland. Oprah Winfrey also sent a trunk full of her favorite children’s books. But reports about a $600,000 golden rocking horse proved false, the paper reports. Thank god, ’cause that sounds dangerous.
» Despite his inspiring new friendship with Deepak Chopra, 50 Cent remains kind of a jerk. He tweeted out photos of Jay-Z’s face Photoshopped onto a baby’s body, which are as disturbing as you might imagine.
