I can barely believe that it's been an entire YEAR since Princess Blue Ivy was born. It seems like just yesterday we were zooming in on photos and deciphering video codes and splitting megapixels to see if Beyonce's baby bump was real and now we stand looking back on a year of baby "blanket" (we should call her because it's RARE you see anything more than a couple tiny feet dangling under a blanket).
It's stirred up quite a bit of controversy, when rumored that Bey and Jay will be spending upward of 1 million dollars on Baby Blue's 1st birthday bash. Having the 1st birthday party (extravaganza I can imagine) will be held at the Barclay's Center where Jay Z reportedly rents a luxurious basement suite for $1million a year. Inside the basement is a nursery ESPECIALLY for little baby Blue, filled with toys where Jay and Bey can leave her safely as they enjoy KID FREE basketball.
I don't know what's so horribly wrong with Jay Z and Beyonce (2 of some of the RICHEST people in the world) paying yearly for a Nursery/Party room for them and their friends and family to enjoy. If I had the money, I'd do it too. As far as I can see, there's nothing wrong with it. They didn't pay a million dollars for the 1st birthday party, they spent a million bucks for an ENTIRE year of rental space.
Fans took to social networks voicing their "concern" of King Bey and Jay's "overspending"... saying things like:
"Is B 4 real?! Why not just have a basic kid's party 4 Blue Ivy and donate that million to Hurricane Sandy victims? Waay 2 Over the top IMO," (tweeted by Jazmeen)
"Blue Ivy having a million dollar bday while people still starving in Africa and Hurricane victims have no heat. Shame on you Beyonce & Jay-Z," (tweeted by Donald)
The tweets go on and on like this, and I personally think Jazmeen and Donald and every other person concerning themselves with the bands and bank accounts of others need to HAVE A DAMN SEAT!!! First of all they didn't spend $1million on Blue Ivy's birthday party, and Second if they DID, it's noone's business but their own. I'd much rather see them over indulge cute little Blue Ivy than to spend millions on chains, planes and automobiles like most entertainers.
So, Happy Birthday Blue Ivy. I hope your mom and dad drape the walls in gold and gummi bears and powder your bum with the dust of fairies; on this beautiful 7th day of January 2013.
