And I bet she’s already tired of the attention.
Music royalty, a.k.a. Jay-Z and Beyonce Knowles Carter (I don’t know if she actually took his last name or not, I’m just throwing it in there) delivered their first child yesterday and I believe the earth moved. All jokes aside, I have to give them a lot of credit for doing their best to keep this a private event but they HAD to know the name was going to be dissected ENDLESSLY.
“My favorite hue is Jay-Z blue,” he rapped on the track “Go Crazy” with Young Jeezy, and then there are his albums titled “Blueprint,” “Blueprint 2″ and “The Blueprint 3″ — plus he once dated singer, Blu Cantrell. That’s a lot of blue in his life.” (okay that last reference is just stupid)
“What about Ivy? The Internet speculates that Ivy references the Roman numeral “IV” representing the number four, which is apparently significant to Beyonce and Jay-Z — Beyonce’s birthday is Sept. 4, Jay-Z’s is Dec. 4, the couple was married on April 4, 2008 and the Beyonce’s latest album is entitled “4.” (source: huffingtonpost.com)
And while I do agree that the name is “interesting” some of the crazier commentary is as follows:
“One particularly persistent line making the rounds this morning is that “Blue Ivy” backwards is “Elub Yvi.” Per the theory, those nonsensical letters translate into Latin as “Lucifer’s daughter.” In actuality, those letters joined together mean absolutely nothing, and certainly not Lucifer (as it happens, that is already a Latin word, so any translation would be redundant and result back in…Lucifer. Not “Elub.” Fun with facts!)”
ALSO, “The other minor and fairly creative theory making the rounds is that Blue Ivy is a tenuous nod revealing a link between Beyoncé, Jay-Z and the Illuminati. Not seeing the connection? Well, conspiracy theorists claim that Blue is an acronym for “Born Living Under Evil,” while Ivy stands for “Illuminati’s Very Youngest.” (source: eonline.com)
And if you still want more, below is video. I’m just gonna say it, it would have been difficult for me to keep a straight face while giving this “report” and Robin from Good Morning America seemed to be struggling a bit herself… (abcnews.com won’t let me embed the video and I’m not
