Woman Creates Petition To Get Beyoncé And Jay Z To Comb Their Daughter Blue Ivy’s Hair

A New York woman has created a petition against musicians Jay Z and Beyoncé for what she says is not taking good care of their daughter, Blue Ivy’s hair. The alleged creator of the online petition on Change.org has been identified as Jasmine Toliver.

On the petition page which has been entitled ‘Comb Her Hair’, Toliver claims that Blue Ivy has developed ‘lint balls’ and ‘matted dreadlocks’ in her hair due to improper care.

She wrote on the petition page: “As a woman who understands the importance of hair care. It’s disturbing to watch a child suffering from the lack of hair moisture. The parents of Blue Ivy. Sean Carter A.K.A Jay-Z and Beyoncé has failed at numerous attempts of doing Blue Ivy Hair.”

Since the creation the petition has garnered over 3,000 signatures and despite criticism its creator apparently took to her Facebook page to defend herself, downplaying it as a ‘joke’.

Toliver wrote: “My joke took off anything I guess with ‘sign a petition’ is funny. If I would’ve said ‘sign a petition to save Lebron James hairline’ that would’ve took off (too)! It’s a clever joke! Nobody came up with before.”

She continued. “My hair (looks) like blue ivy right now except its moisturized and detangled.”

“Yes I’m natural! Have a seat to most people. I can care less about Beyoncé or (Jay Z) but I do care for the kids hair. People make nothing out of something. I love being black! I’m proud my bloodline runs from Africa. I’m proud of my own tightly coiled kinks. I’m proud of my big lips and brown skin. People just need to (breathe) and chill out.”

Several natural hair experts have been less then entertained to Toliver’s ‘joke’ of an explanation. Stylist and owner of Hair Rules salon Anthony Dicket said: “That’s insane to think that her hair, as a child – a toddler – is supposed to fit into a standard of beauty, that’s acceptable for who? That’s the big question. Who cares? We’re talking about a child here, and we’re going to now implement a standard of beauty for children?”

“She’s a child with natural hair — what texture other than natural would you expect a child to be?”

Dickey added: “I think she’s a pretty little girl. She doesn’t have naturally straight hair, she has natural curly hair, and it has the right and free will to go in any direction that it chooses, and to think it should do anything else – you would be suggesting a standard of beauty that is supposed to be imposed on a toddler, and that’s insane.”

The petition appears to have started after photos emerged online of the two – year – old’s hair looking a little wild whilst she was in the Hamptons with her parents over the weekend.

Beyoncé Sacks General Manager?

Beyonce

According to reports, Beyoncé is believed to have sacked her general manager, Live Nation Executive Faisal Durrani.

The Daily Mirror reports the singer has decided to become her own boss with the help of husband and rapper Jay Z although he doesn’t hold an official professional position as part of her career.

Durrani is one of numerous managers that Beyoncé has dismissed over the years, including her father Mathew Knowles, whom she sacked in 2011 after he managed the star for 21 years.

Beyoncé became the president of Parkwood Entertainment; an entertainment and management company that she had set up in 2008.

An insider told the Daily Mirror: “Jay has been heavily involved in Beyoncé’s career for years, and was instrumental in organising the Mrs Carter Show World Tour. But he isn’t officially regarded as her manager – she really is independent.”

The insider continued that the couple, who wed in 2008 and have a two – year – old daughter Blue Ivy, want to start putting family life first.

The insider added: “Now the couple have Blue, she wants to make sure her family come first at all times, especially as there’s talk of them adding to the brood.

“The best way to do that is to make sure all managerial decisions are made by her and her husband – together.”

A representative for the Drunk In Love hitmaker insisted Jay Z isn’t “involved in her management”, stating that she has been in control herself for four years.

They explained, saying: ”Beyoncé has managed herself since 2010 under her company Parkwood Entertainment.

”Faisal Durrani worked for her as general manager for a very short time. Jay Z is not involved in her management.”

Beyonce In HBO Documentary

 

Beyonce has opened up about her miscarriage for the first time. The singers husband Jay-Z referred to the heartbreaking loss in his single Glory, a track which he has recorded within days of Blue’s birth in January 2012.

The lyrics referring to the miscarriage include: “Last time the miscarriage was so tragic/We was afraid you’d disappear/But nah baby you magic.”

But it’s the first time that the 31 – year – old has decided to address.

In her forthcoming HBO documentary, Life Is But A Dream, she says: “About two years ago, I was pregnant for the first time.”

She recalls: “And I heard the heartbeat, which was the most beautiful music I ever heard in my life. I picked out names.

“I envisioned what my child would look like.. I was feeling very maternal.”

It was in the early stages of her pregnancy that she had lost the baby.

She says: “I flew back to New York to get my check up – and no heartbeat.

“Literally the week before I went to the doctor, everything was fine, but there was no heartbeat.”

The star then turned to music to get through the pain of losing her child.

Referring to the untitled song that she had wrote, she says: “I went into the studio and wrote the saddest song I’ve ever written in my life.

“And it was actually the first song I wrote for my album. And it was the best form of therapy for me, because it was the saddest thing I’ve ever been through.”

Talking about being pregnant with her daughter Blue Ivy, she says: “Being pregnant was very much like falling in love.

“You are so open. You are so overjoyed. There’s no words that can express having a baby growing inside of you, so of course you want to scream it out and tell everyone.”

Since embracing the 11 – month – old baby, he’s been an energetic father, playing with Blue on their holiday in south of France, talking about her publicly and even changing her nappies.

But according to Life & Style sources have said that the Young Forever rapper’s friends have been left amazed at the change.

A source told the magazine: ”Jay is the best dad. Everyone knew he was going to be in love with the baby but his friends were shocked by how gooey he got when he became a father.”

Jay- Z who had a troubled childhood, has said that he doesn’t want his daughter to be ‘tough’ but to be a ‘respectful’ and a good person.

He has previously said: “She doesn’t have to be tough. She has to love herself, she has to know who she is, she has to be respectful and be a moral person.”

The news was announced on Monday that she will air an ‘intimate’ documentary on HBP on February 16.

Beyoncé And Jay-Z Lose Fight To Trademark Name Of Baby Daughter Blue Ivy

Beyonce and Jay-Z have lost a fight to a small wedding planner to trademark the name of their daughter’s name Blue Ivy.

The couple filed legal papers, shortly after the birth of their first child to protect the name.

It has been revealed that they were planning to launch a range of baby products and clothes named Blue Ivy. The range of products and clothing would have added to their fortune of more than £1.1 billion.

The pair lost the lawsuit, to a wedding planner based in Boston who had named her company Blue Ivy in 2009; the ruling from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office meaning that they have no legal right to keep the name as a trademark name.

The owner of Blue Ivy, Veronica Alexandra found herself fighting for her company name after the powerful show business couple had named their child Blue Ivy.

But the couple found themselves to have two failed attempts after they were unsuccessful. The trademark office denied both the applications.

Alexandra explains that she was forced to file her own application as she panicked that she could lose her business name if the celebrity couple won the lawsuit.

She said: “My company had been called Blue Ivy since 2009. I came up with the name, and if they had won my business could have been restricted.

“It was important for me to protect the name of my company. We are very successful as wedding planners and wanted to stay that way.

“Of course Blue Ivy is a lovely name, but I had to make sure that I would be able to continue using it for my business.”

She went on to explain why she had chosen the name Blue Ivy for her company so that she could stand out from her competitors.

She said: “Blue is a very powerful colour used by any companies and Ivy conjures up a very romantic image. I was very happy with the name, and of course business spiked after Beyoncé called her baby Blue Ivy. We do between 40 and 60 weddings a year.”

Alexandra concluded that she would give up her rights to the name Blue Ivy if the couple were to make her an offer: “If Beyoncé and Jay-Z want to buy me out I’d welcome that.”

The couple have never clarified why they named their daughter Blue Ivy.

The colour blue has been said to be Jay-Z’s favourite since he has released three albums called ‘Blueprint’.

The name ‘Ivy’ has been referenced to the Roman numeral (‘IV’) 4 – a number which is significant for Beyonce and Jay-Z; Jay’s birthday is on the 4th December whilst Beyonce’s birthday is on 4th September. The couple also married on 4th April in 2008. Beyonce also entitled her fourth studio album with the number 4.

Since sister Beyoncé gave birth to her baby daughter Blue Ivy Carter earlier last month on January, 7 Solange Knowles has spoken out on the different love she has towards her niece in comparison to her son Daniel after becoming an aunt for the first time.

In an interview with Rollacoaster magazine along with a photoshoot Solange posed for, she spoke of the different bond has that she has with her niece: “It’s very different to being a mother, but there’s still that sort of magnetic bond and love that you can’t even put words on to describe.”

She gushed with delight as she continued:  “I think babies in general are so lovable – and my sister’s baby, Blue, is so beautiful. She is really a beautiful little baby. It’s really special to have a niece because I have a son, so I get to have a little girl too.”

Beyoncé won’t be getting any parenting tips for sister Solange

Solange also revealed that she won’t be giving any advice to Beyoncé on motherhood as she explained: “I think it’s really important for every mother to find their own way. I think it’s actually the most annoying thing when you’re a new mum and you’re getting so much advice from other mothers!

“You really just have to feel it out for yourself. But she’s my best friend and we talk at least every other day.”

Solange who is a model and a DJ is expected to be releasing some new records said she wouldn’t like to get as famous as her sister because she wouldn’t be able to do normal things: “I really enjoy my privacy and being able to walk my son to school every morning and pick him up every afternoon.

“I know that I couldn’t do that if I was at the next level – privacy, as you know, it just doesn’t belong to you anymore.

“I definitely made a conscious effort to stay as low key as I can and still do what I want to do.”

Beyoncé Gives Birth To Baby Girl

After what seems to be numerous false reports of Beyoncé giving birth to her first born, the star has finally given birth to a healthy baby girl via a scheduled C – section with husband Jay – Z besides her.

According to the New York Daily News, the singer checked in at New York City’s Lenox Hill Hospital on Saturday night – January 7 – under the name Ingrid Jackson. The hospital is only a few miles away from the couple’s TriBeCa, Manhattan apartment where they spend their time whilst not touring.

According to E! Online, the baby girl’s name is Blue Ivy Carter as Jay – Z (real name Shawn Carter) has been telling his friends.

There have been confusions to the name as some have believed it to be Ivy Blue Carter at first but E! reporter Ken Baker has confirmed that friends of the couple have said it to be named Blue Ivy Carter in a tweet which read: “Sorry, make that BLUE IVY CARTER is the Beyonce baby name they’re telling friends! more @eonline”.

The name ‘Blue Ivy’ has been questioned as it is unusual for a name but it could mean something to Beyoncé and Jay –Z as the name could have a significance. As ‘Blue’ may simply mean the colour Blue it could also relate to Jay –Z’s series of albums that have ‘Blueprint ’ which include The Blueprint which was released in 2001, The Blueprint2: The Gift & The Curse which was dropped in 2002 and The Blueprint 3 in 2009.

Regarding to the name ‘Ivy’ could be a reference to the couple’s love for the number four which in Roman numeral for 4 is IV. Other aspects that relate is that Beyoncé and Jay – Z are:

–          That they married on 4th April in 2008

–          Jay-Z’s birthday is December 4

–          Beyoncé’s birthday is September 4

–          Beyoncé’s latest album is called 4 which was her fourth solo studio album

–          They also have matching IV tattoos on their wedding fingers

The last time Beyoncé was seen was on January 5, 2012 which was the first time since December 21, when rumours had started to begin to circulate on the internet that she had given birth.

The speculations came after that staff at St Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital had been told to prepare for a VIP arrival. But Sister Solange Knowles denied the rumours on behalf of Beyoncé as she tweeted: “Shout out to my sister for being THE cutest pregnant woman ever!”

Just after the birth of Blue Ivy Solange tweeted: “The most beautiful girl in the world.”

TMZ have also reported that the hospital expanded a plan to ensure the safety was tightened for the mother and child. Hospital executives worked with a large security force and discussed the best way of being secure in a meeting which was apparently held on Friday afternoon to prepare for the singer’s late night delivery on Saturday night.

Solange tweeted about Blue's arrival on her Twitter page

So far it seems the plan has worked since no pictures of Beyonce, Jay –Z or any members of their relatives have been pictured of entering or leaving the hospital building.

Celebrities have already begun to congratulate the couple on becoming first time parents as music mogul Russell Simmons tweeted: “congrats to my good friends Beyoncé and Jay-Z.”

Rihanna also added: “Welcome to the world princess Carter! Love Aunty Rih”

P Diddy: “Congrats to jay and B! God Bless 🙂 ! And many more!”

Snooki: “Beyonce congrats on your baby gurl mama!!!! So happy for you , you deserve it sexpot”

Brooklyn Decker: “Oh my gosh Bey had her baby… I hope I hope I hope she is named Brooklyn.. I will tattoo it on my butt if so.’ She later added: ‘Ivy Blue Carter. They named her Ivy Blue Carter.. we can no longer be bonded. I’ll go cry myself to sleep now.”

Tyrese: “Congrats to you both .. You are loved..! Beyonce’ and Jay are new proud parents of a healthy baby girl .. Blessings!!”

Young Jeezy: “Congratulations to Jay-Z & Beyonce on baby Ivy Blue being born”

Kourtney Kardashian: “Congratulations to Beyonce, the 2nd Princess of Pop (behind Britney) for her new baby girl Ivy Blue”

Beyoncé revealed her pregnancy at the MTV Video Music Awards in August after performing on stage. The singer dropped her microphone and opened her purple sequined jacket and affectionately rubbed her tummy with a huge grin. The audience screamed with joy and applauded at the unexpected news.

Whilst no spokesperson of the couple have not yet confirmed the news or denied it security has been constricted at the hospital.
