Beyonce and Jay-Z are making it clear that if anybody’s going to make money off of their chosen one, it’s going to be their asses. A few days after Blue Ivy Carter became the only baby born on earth (It’s true. All our birth certificates are now null and void since B.I.C. is the only human that matters.), several hos tried to trademark her full name to use on a line of baby products. Those trademarks were stamped with a giant red DENIED and the trademark office said that the name already belonged to the most famous human on the planet. According to The Washington Post, Beyonce and Jay-Z are trying to stop future trademark filings by reserving the name Blue Ivy Carter for a future line of baby cosmetics (the fuck?), diaper bags, strollers and all sorts of other tacky baby shit.
One expert thinks Beyonce and Jay-Z’s application will be approved right away since parents have the right to trademark the names of their underage kids. Another expert is side-eyeing all of this, because he thinks Beyonce and Jay-Z are getting special treatment since their application has been fast-tracked.
Two things: Welcome to Planet Bey-Z, second expert. Of course, Beyonce and Jay-Z are getting special treatment. The line always forms behind them and the phrase “take a number” is as foreign to them as natural sunlight is to Basement Baby. Second, I love how Beyonce and Jay-Z are really trying to act like they’re just doing this to stop shady whores from making $$$ off their baby and they have no interest in putting out a line of baby product products. We all know that the shelves of Babies ‘R Us will be soon covered with B.I.C. baby lace fronts and B.I.C. baby bodysuits with the words “Suri Who?” bedazzled on them.
In other Jay-Z news, if you’re in the mood for an eye seizure, try to sit through Jay-Z and Kanye’s video for N*ggas in Paris. WARNING: You might want to smoke a bowl of Blue Ivy Kush (no trademark) before entering strobe light fuckery hell.
