Blue Ivy Welcomed Big!!!

Celebrities Going Overboard?

     Well congratulations to Beyonce & Jay-Z for there daughter Blue Ivy!  She was born Saturday night 1/7/2012!  I am very happy for the two that have been trying to conceive for a while now.  However, there were some extreme measures taken that I thought were ridiculous....
       She had given birth in New York Lenox Hospital and of course they had to make it such a big deal.  The couple had the ENTIRE 6th floor of the hospital under lockdown with their own private security and had asked residents to evacuate...really?  One woman who was in labor had to leave her room with her entire family so that Beyonce and Jay-Z could give birth to their baby girl.  She told E! news "I was almost restrained and so were my children. It was bad because look who they are. They been pushing, tugging, [saying], 'Ma'am you have to move. This is a secluded area" Another man could not visit his two daughters on the sixth floor, they are premature babies, and he was not even allowed access!  The more I kept reading and seeing about this on the television the more I thought WOW these celebrities now-a-days are going overboard with even a special thing like giving child birth.  I understand that maybe she would need security for fans to not run into her room, but the fact they had to rent out the ENTIRE sixth floor and ruin other peoples special day is RIDICULOUS.  Once again I am so happy for the couple but at the same time its like you do not have to act like a diva for everything. 
     On another note about 48 hours later Jay-Z had released a song about Blue!  It is titled glory you can listen to it if you want, Ill put a link on the bottom, but basically talking about how she is going to change his life and how much of a beauty she is to him.  One line I liked was "You're the child of destiny/You're the child of my destiny/You're my child with the child from Destiny's Child/That's a helluva recipe."  Another quote expressing his happiness "The most amazing feeling I feel, words can't describe what I'm feeling for real."  Than I was suprised with the next quote he talks about the miscarriage he had with Beyonce and how now everything's changed that this child is his glory.  The rap went like this "Last time the miscarriage was so tragic/We was afraid you'd disappear/But nah baby, you're magic," He talks about how sad Beyonce was but the daughter was conceived in Paris, France.  The rap was really nice and Im so happy for the two!

  1. I agree with this completely. For as much money as they spent renting out the floor of the hospitalt hey could have had an amazing at home water birth which is therapeutic and completely natural....and they wouldn't have bothered other people.

  2. I know! When I read this I was like "REALLY?!" Its totally unneccesary they act like they are royalty!
