Beyonce Discusses Blue Ivy And Hints At Meaning Behind Her Name
Beyonce Discusses Blue Ivy And Hints At Meaning Behind Her Name

Beyonce has revealed what could be some of the inspiration behind daughter Blue Ivy Carter’s unique name.

On Monday, Beyonce took to her Tumblr page to post a poem about “blue,” and sources at  BET believe the poem might have served as the inspiration behind her daughter’s name.

“The world is blue at its edges and in its depths,” reads the passage from Rebecca Solnit’s “Field Guide to Getting Lost.”

“This blue is the light that got lost. Light at the blue end of the spectrum does not travel that whole distance from the sun to us. It disperses among the molecules of air, it scatters in the water. Water is colorless, shallow water appears to be the color of whatever lies underneath it, but deep water is full of this scattered light, the purer the water the deeper the blue.”

There has been a lot of speculation as to the meaning behing Blue’s name. GlobalGrind, a celebrity news website founded by Russell Simmons, who is another close friend of Beyonce and husband Jay-Z, explained that the name “Blue” is a tribute to Jay-Z, whose birth name is Shawn Carter.

Jay-Z’s franchise albums have been called “Blueprint.” Blue also contains four letters, and Beyonce has a “love for the number four.” “We all have special numbers in our lives, and 4 is that [number] for me,” Beyonce told Billboard recently. “It’s the day I was born. My mother’s birthday, and a lot of my friends’ birthdays are on the fourth. April 4 is my wedding date.”

Beyonce says that, since becoming a mother, “the word ‘love’ means something completely different now.” After being named People Magazine’s “World’s Most Beautiful Woman,” the singer offered more information about her life as a new mom.

“I feel more beautiful than I’ve ever felt because I’ve given birth,” Beyonce told the magazine. “I have never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a purpose on this earth.”

“I’m obsessed with Blue,” she said. “And I mean that in many ways. I just stare at her all day. She is my favorite thing in the world and my number one job is to protect her,” she said. “The best thing about having a daughter is having a true legacy,” she adds. “The word ‘love’ means something completely different now.”

Victoria’s Secret Angels Miranda Kerr, Rosie Huntington Whiteley and Allessandra Ambrosio have a wealth of experience in this department, so our favourite supermodels have released their ‘What’s Sexy Now’ list for 2012.

According to the gorgeous trio, Beyoncé should be proud of her sexiest mama mantle, Blake Lively can be pleased as punch with her top summertime style and Stacey Keibler is the official owner of the best legs according to planet VS.

Also living up to the Angels’ high standards were Britney Spears for sexiest songstress, Annalynne McCord for best bikini body, Charlize Theron for sexiest actress, Olivia Wilde for sexiest summer glow, Jennifer Lawrence for sexiest eyes and Emma Stone scooped up the honour of sexiest sense of humour.

It’s shaping up to be a good year for Beyonce, who was also recently awarded the title of ‘most beautiful woman in the world’ by US magazine ‘People.’ Beyonce said of the honour: “I feel more beautiful than I’ve ever felt because I’ve given birth. I have never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a purpose on this Earth.”

As well as the launch of their high end designer lingerie line “Victoria’s Secret Designer Collection”, it’s a big year for the American lingerie megabrand in terms of the British market, with the plan to open three UK stores.

Richest Celeb Couples include Beyonce & Jay-Z, Brad Pitt & Angelina, and Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart

These celebrities are millionaires in their own rights, but when you throw two together, you get an unstoppable - not to mention super rich - force.

Coming first in the ranking - and somewhat suprisingly - is the powerful duo formed by supermodel Gisele Bundchen and NFL superstar Tom Brady. Gisele is well on the road to becoming the world’s first billionaire supermodel, as she recently pocketed a massive $45 million over a 12-month period. Not to be overshadowed by his more famous wife, Tom  – who signed a four-year, $72 million contract extension in September with the New England Patriots, NFL’s richest deal on an annual basis – brought home another $31 million, putting the couple’s combined annual earnings at $76 million.

Music’s most powerful couple, Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z hauled in some $72 million over the past year, making them number 2 on the list.  Beyonce earned an estimated $35 million in a twelve month period, thanks mostly to business-focused deals such as a clothing line with Dereon and endorsement deals with L’Oreal, DirecTV, General Mills and others. As for Jay-Z, his earnings come from the 10-year $150 million Live Nation deal that he signed in 2008, and the cash he collects as a shareholder in New Jersey Nets, 40/40 Club chain and ad firm Translation.

Hollywood royalty Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt came in third place on our list, but the first appearance of an acting duo, with a combined $50 million annual income. The highest-paid actress in the world is the only woman making bank for playing action heroes in Tinseltown these days: Salt, which was originally written for Tom Cruise, earned $300 million at the box office. Her other movie from last year, The Tourist, made another $280 million worldwide. As a result, Angelina pocketed around $30 million last year, while her soon-to-be husband, Brad Pitt, cashed in some $20 million. With his Plan B production company, Brad has become as active a producer as he is an actor.

Apart from the fact that he is yet to popularize soccer in America, David Beckham, along with his former Spice Girl wife Victoria, are the world’s fourth Highest-Paid Celebrity couple, with combined earnings of $45 million between May 2010 and May 2011. David’s pitch prowess has declined in recent years as the 36-year-old’s career winds down, but he still collects big endorsement checks from companies like Adidas and, more recently, Samsung, for which he will be the global brand ambassador during the 2012 Olympic Games in London. His pay check last year: $40 million. Victoria is responsible for the other $5 million from the couple’s annual income, thanks to the percentage of sales that she collects from her fashion lines, a figure which is set to soar this year.

Coming last, but not least, is Twilight’s Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, who have both earned $20 million last year thanks to the franchise’s global success, making their combined annual salary $40 million. With the end of the Twilight franchise in sight, they both are preparing for a post-vampire career. Robert has taken the lead in more “serious” projects, like Remember Me, which earned $56 million on a budget of $16 million. In the meantime, Kristens’s non-Twilight career hasn’t been as promising as her co-star and real-life boyfriend’s so far. Her 2010 film The Runaways grossed only $4.6 million at the box office. But there’s still hope for Kristen as she can soon be seen in cinemas playing the leading role in the film Snow White and the Huntsman.

Jay-Z on baby Blue Ivy Carter: ‘I just know I’ll probably have the worst, spoiled little kid ever’
Jay-Z on baby Blue Ivy Carter: ‘I just know I’ll probably have the worst, spoiled little kid ever’

With superstar parents, Blue Ivy Carter is going to grow to be one lucky lady.

Not only was baby Blue Ivy born to power couple Beyoncé and Jay-Z, but if her dad, 42, has his way, she’s going to get whatever she wants growing up!

“I imagine I’ll take things I learned from my mom and things I’ve learned from raising my nephews and apply that,” the rapper says in a clip from Oprah’s Master Class: Special Edition, which airs Sunday on OWN at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

“Then, at the end of the day, I just know I’ll probably have the worst, spoiled little kid ever.”

But the new father is well aware that even spoiled children have moments when they come to resent their parents.

Getting bashful for a moment, he chuckles and says, “Everyone imagines they’ll be a great dad until their [kids are] teenagers. [They say], ‘Get away from me, Dad. You’re embarrassing me.’ “

We’re sure having the world’s most beautiful wife will make up for that. Beyonce, who gave birth to daughter Blue Ivy Carter in January, was recently named the most beautiful woman in the world by US magazine, People. Beyonce told the mag: “I feel more beautiful than I’ve ever felt because I’ve given birth. I have never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a purpose on this Earth.”

Is Beyonce being sued?
Is Beyonce being sued?

Video game company Gate Five want to sue Beyonce for $100 million.

The popstar, who is due to give birth to her first child in March, will be wanting to avoid stress, but if the video game company Gate Five get their way, Beyonce may soon be stripped of her millions. She is said to be being sued for a $100 million after ‘abandoning’ a project she was doing with the company, to make a dance video game in April.

Gate Five have claimed that the R&B star ‘abruptly abandoned’ the project to make the video game Starpower: Beyoncé after making an ‘extortionate demand’ for more money. Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Charles Ramos has refused Beyoncé’s request to abolish the suit, ruling that Gate Five may proceed with civil action.

In the suit filed in April, the 30 year-old songstress was accused of a “bad faith breach of contract so callous that, on what appeared to be a whim, she destroyed Gate Five’s business and drove 70 people into unemployment, the week before Christmas”.

In addition to her legal worries, Beyoncé has also had to deal with speculation that she has been wearing a prosthetic baby bump. However, A spokesperson for the singer told America’s ABC News that insinuations about her donning a prosthetic belly was “stupid, ridiculous and false”.

When is Beyonce due to give birth?
When is Beyonce due to give birth?

It doesn’t seem too long ago that Beyonce announced she was expecting, but now it seems that the RnB superstar may give birth sooner rather than later. The ‘Halo’ singer had previously revealed she and hubby Jay-Z would welcome their first child into the world in February, but a new video clip has surfaced online dating back from September in which Beyonce says she is “six months pregnant”.

In the video, Beyonce says: “Right now I’m actually shooting the video for ‘Countdown’ and I’m six months pregnant, pretending that my stomach is flat in body suits. But thank god you can’t really tell from the front, but when I turn to the side … oh baby! Oh baby!”
 
New http://www.fansshare.com/news/new-beyonc-baby-bump-pictures/, and the star certainly looks as though she is nearing her due date. Beyonce's Destiny's Child bandmate Kelly Rowland has accidentally confirmed that the singer and her husband Jay-Z are expecting a baby girl. Kelly said:”I think she’ll be very well behaved. Her parents will make sure of that.”
 
Beyonce has also been talking about her pregnancy cravings recently, saying that she has to have ketchup with everything she eats: “I mean, I liked it before I was pregnant, but I now literally won’t eat anything without it. Breakfast, lunch or dinner, I need to have a bottle of ketchup close to hand” she said. 
Jay-Z scarred by his Dad’s departure
Jay-Z scarred by his Dad’s departure

Jay-Z was left with a ”huge scar” when his father walked out on him when he was just 11 years old. The 42-year-old rapper’s Father, Adnis Reeves, descended into alcoholism and left their home in New York and Jay-Z - whose real name is Shawn Carter - was left devastated by the departure of his “superhero”.

He said: “If your dad died before you were born, yeah, it hurts, but it’s not like you had a connection with something that was real. Not to say it’s any better, but to have that connection and then have it ripped away was, like, the worst. My dad was such a good dad that when he left, he left a huge scar. He was my superhero.”
 
The rapper and his Dad didn’t reunite until 2003. Jay-Z told GQ: ”[I talked about] what it did to me, what it meant, asked him why. There was no real answer. There was nothing he could say, because there’s no excuse for that. There really isn’t. So there was nothing he could say to satisfy me, except to hear me out. And it was up to me to forgive and let it go.”
 
The rapper’s wife Beyonce Knowles is currently expecting the couple’s first child and he has pledged to be a hands-on dad: ”Providing - that’s not love. Being there - that’s more important. I mean, we see that. We see that with all these rich socialites. They’re crying out for attention; they’re hurting for love. I’m not being judgmental - I’m just making an observation. They’re crying out for the love that maybe they didn’t get at home, and they got everything. All the material things that they need and want. So we know that’s not the key.” Asked if he plans to change diapers, he added: “Of course. 100 per cent.”
