The birth of a child is a beautiful thing and I would want to be among the first to congratulate Jay Z and Beyoncé on the birth of their new baby – Blue Ivy Carter – if.
Now, I’m pretty sure that someone is not gonna like me after this. I am, however, a journalist and we journalists have to look at the whole picture.
OK, here we go. Do you really believe that she was pregnant?
I’m not saying that Beyoncé didn’t have a baby. I’m just saying that things don’t quite add up. Like time for instance.
Most babies are born in nine months, right? Consider this: Beyoncé announced her pregnancy at the Video Music Awards on MTV back in late August, about 5 months ago. Did she look four months pregnant then? Not to me. I’m no pregnancy expert, but should she have been dancing around like that after four months of being pregnant?
I’m not gonna dwell on that one though. Seriously, I’m happy for the both of them. I even hear that Jay Z has a new song out that actually has the baby crying in the background. Kinda puts you in the mind of Stevie Wonder’s hit, “Isn’t She Lovely.”
It certainly looks as though “Baby Blue” will be a child with every opportunity that the world has to offer. I mean, Jay Z is your Dad and Beyoncé is your Mom? What else can you ask for?
On another note: Ruben is back...
I was listening to Ruben Studdards new single, “I’m Single,” and thinking to myself, ‘Here’s a guy who really never got the props he deserved.” He was an American Idol winner, but you really never hear a whole lot out of him. Still, he is really talented, and, in my opinion, is making great music.
There is actually a story behind “Single.” It tracks back to his divorce two and a half years ago. What better way to create a hit song than to write one that reflects the life, love and pain that you go through. Those make the best songs.
So here’s what I need you to do. Go to Youtube and look up this song. It might take a little while to grow on you, however, it will. Then on June 28, go to Itunes and purchase the single.
