Happy proud new parents, Beyoncé and Jay-Z have just released photos of their beautiful baby, Blue Ivy Carter. Instead of selling the pictures to a magazine for a pretty penny, the couple (who prefer to keep their private lives private) decided to share them for free on a Tumblr account. Along with the pictures, a message says:

“We welcome you to share in our joy. Thank you for respecting our privacy during this beautiful time in our lives. – The Carter Family.”

Blue Ivy is so cute and you can tell that Beyonce and Jay-Z are going to make great parents. Check out the picture of Jay-z with his child below and I’ve included the link to their page for more pics, should you desire.

After the birth of Blue Ivy Carter, she literally became a household name within a week. Not only was she the child of famed parents Beyoncé and Jay-Z, but she was also featured on a hit single alongside her proud papa on his track Glory. But the real question became, who would be Blue’s godmother?

Yesterday, the rumor started pumping out the fact that Oprah had been named the godmother by the new parents. Thankfully, best friend Gayle King was on-hand at CBS This Morning to set the record straight. “If she is the godmother, it’s news to her.” Oprah was actually travelling to South Africa when Blue was born, Gayle confirmed. “She hasn’t even got them a baby gift yet.” Obviously, Oprah know the couple well, but do you think she should be Blue’s godmother? She’d definitely be full of wisdom! Check out Gayle’s full denial of the story below.

You’d think becoming a new father wouldn’t leave a lot of time for hitting the studio lay down a new track. However, proud papa Jay-Z had time to spit a rhyme or two with The Neptunes to tribute his new baby daughter, Blue Ivy. “The most amazing feeling I feel… Baby, I paint the sky blue / My greatest creation was you.” Are you serious? How endearing and amazing is this song? Also, the song features Blue herself. Yes, her first few cries from the delivery room were recorded and sampled in the track.

A few other rockin’ lyrics from the song include “a pinch of Hov, a whole glass of B” and “your a child from a Destiny’s Child / that’s one hell of a recipe.” In the track, Jay-Z also admits that Beyoncé had previously suffered a miscarriage in the lyrics, “You was made in Paris and mama woke up the next day and shot her album package / Last time the miscarriage was so tragic / We was afraid you disappeared but nah baby, you magic.” Get your Kleenex out and listen to Glory.

Beyoncé Has Her Baby

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Tyrell

Congratulations are in order this morning for Beyoncé & Jay-Z. Yesterday, Beyoncé gave birth a beautiful and healthy baby girl named Blue Ivy Carter. Friday night, Bey checked into the Lenox Hill hospital in New York’s upper east side under the incognito name of Ingrid Jackson. Bey’s birth was completed through a C-section. The NY Daily News reports the following.

  • On Saturday night, people were seen bringing bags of takeout and a dozen bottles of red wine onto the heavily guarded hospital wing.
  • After 11 p.m., even doctors and nurses were barred from entering the fourth floor, prompting one doc to complain that he had patients to see.
  • In an effort to keep images from leaking to the public, hospital workers placed tape over security cameras and are forcing employees to turn in cell phones when they arrive for their shifts, a source said.
  • Several security guards were spotted patrolling the perimeter of the hospital Saturday night.

Celebrities ranging from Rihanna to Gwyneth Paltrow tweeted their congratulations to the new parents. I cannot wait to see the first photos of this new baby. Which parent do you think Ivy looks more like – her mother or her father?

Beyonce Reveals Her 10 Favorite Songs of 2011

In: Donovan, Music

It seems like everyone and their dog has a year end list these days. Why should celebrities be immune to succumbing to this trend and not share their favorites via a Top 10 list? Since Beyonce is major preggers right now and probably bored out of her mind, she decided to occupy herself by compiling her favorite 10 songs of 2011. According to a post on her official website, the “Irreplaceable” singer just couldn’t get enough of these tracks.

I have to admit the list sorta surprised me. The list is far more hip-hop than I would’ve expected. Sure, it includes her hubby Jay-Z but a few other rappers as well. Apparently, Bey has a major hard-on for Lil Wayne– he made the list three times. Someone sure likes to get their swagger on. That said, the list also included a few R&B tracks and a couple of surprises. Even Beyonce couldn’t leave Adele off her list. Because if she did, that would be some serious haterade. See what dominated the former Destiny’s Child singer’s iPod this past year. Speaking of DC, one of her bandmates also made the list. Find out who below.

My Top 11 Music Videos of 2011

In: Music, Nic, Videos

I AM A MUSIC VIDEO ADDICT. I’m the first one to view it, first one to post it, and what’s better than seeing visuals to a song that make you love the song even more than you thought was possible. It was a big year for highly visual music videos and I have no lack of material to add to this list. This is MY list and if you disagree then comment below and tell me what your favourites were this year.

11. Kanye West & Jay-Z, “Otis”

There is no denying that despite vocal complications and cancelling a few tour dates, Adele had an amazing 2011. She proved herself during countless live performances and with award nominations including a handful of Grammy nods. Now, Rolling Stone just made Adele’s life even sweeter by naming her track Rolling In The Deep the best single of 2011. In a list comprised of 50 tracks that were released this year, Adele topped the list of heavy hitters. Rolling Stone calls it “a breakup scorcher to beat all breakup scorchers.” Here’s more:

This is brokenhearted music that makes you feel like taking on the world – crackling with quiet menace in the intro, then slowly building to that gut-punch refrain of “We could have had it all!” How did such an old-school soul song dominate the charts next to Gaga and Katy Perry? Maybe it’s the hint of hip-hop venom you hear amid the blues-steeped storminess when Adele tells her ex-lover she’ll “lay your shit bare.” Maybe it’s that certain emotions – especially when channeled through a voice this powerful – will always seem timeless.

Adele isn’t the only female singer to hit the list. She joins the likes of Britney Spears, Lady Gaga and Beyoncé in the top ten alone. Check out a few more of Rolling Stone’s 50 Best Singles of 2011 below.

For this week’s featured new release, I decided to tackle four female singers or acts that have made their mark in music forever. And, it just so happens that they are all releasing CD/DVD combos of previous tours on this week. These gals are Adele, Beyoncé, Dixie Chicks and Kylie Minogue. Here are the specs on all of their discs.

  • Adele: Live At The Royal Albert Hall was recorded on September 22 at the height of what has been an amazing year for Adele. This DVD features the full 90 minute concert performance, plus special behind the scenes footage shot throughout the day leading up to the concert.
  • Beyoncé: 4, Live At Roseland features the R&B singer dazzling with numbers from some of her previous albums and Destiny Child hits before tackling some of the best tracks from her new album, “4”. The disc also features some behind-the-scenes footage.
  • Dixie Chicks: Storytellers was the grand finale in the whirlwind that surrounded the release of the band’s 5x Grammy Award winning album Taking the Long Way. Fans are treated to personal anecdotes and inspiration around some of the band’s biggest hits.
  • Kyle Minogue: Aphrodite, Les Folies is two hours of classic Kylie, capturing the energy, grandeur and extravagance of the massively acclaimed Aphrodite: Les Folies tour, filmed at Kylie’s triumphant O2 Arena show in London. The show was one of Kylie’s most extravagant and filmed on high tech cameras to give home viewers the best experience, like you were there.
