We all know the story of how Brooklyn’s Finest Sean Carter and Houston’s Southern Belle Beyonce Knowles met, fell in love, married and fed off of each other’s success to climb to the top. The media is always sure to keep fans informed of their whereabouts and endeavors, making them a trend in pop culture today. One of the latest blessings from this power couple was the introduction of their baby girl Blue Ivy Carter into the world.After the pregnancy and delivery gossip, most if not all have ceased to spread vicious rumors about the new addition to the family. The Carter’s have released numerous amounts of photos of the child, confirming the baby’s actual existence on earth. As usual, Beyonce and Jay-Z continue to keep majority of what happens in their personal lives confined, but when it came down to the court rooms on Tuesday (October 16th) the dynasty just couldn’t keep the press away.
Shortly after the birth of Blue Ivy in January of this year, her parents sought out to trademark the baby’s name. Now while some sources say that the bid has been completely lost, others say that the family is still in pursuit. Reports say the couple lost to Blue Ivy Events, a Boston event planning company which has held the name since ’09. The Judge on the case sided with Blue Ivy Events, owned by Veronica Alexandra. But since rumor has it that the couple has plans to start a line of children’s clothing/baby products under the name, it should not interfere with Blue Ivy Events operation. There appears to be no hard feelings between the parties seeing that the Blue Ivy Events website features a picture of Hov and B on the front page.
Trademarking your child’s name seems a bit much, but then again business is business and nothing personal. It could also just be another way to remain in the limelight and make a profit, seeing that this power couple’s glory days may soon be coming to an end after reaching their peak in the music industry.
Last week doors at the Barclays center in Brooklyn, NY finally opened. Barclays is now the home to the Brooklyn Nets with rapper Jay-Z as a partial owner.
This weekend i got the chance to visit arena, unfortunately i didn’t get a chance to go inside but i snapped a quick photo before leaving.
The Billion dollar arena is massive, inside there are many restaurants and stores to stroll around in from Rocawear to Starbucks to a new 40|40 club! The arena will bring tons of business to the downtown brooklyn area, generating a lot of money for the city. Giving Brooklyn Residents something to be proud of.
From September 28th to October 6 Jay-Z kicks off the hype with 7 shows at Barclays that sold out almost instantly, hopefully your one of the lucky ticket holders.
What do you think about Barclays? Have you visited yet?
