Beyonce and Jay-Z Expecting?
Beyonce and Jay-Z married last month in an ultra-secretive wedding in New York, and now tabloids like the New York Post are reporting news that Beyonce is pregnant. The couple won’t even confirm that the April 4th event – flowers, family, close friends, everyone in white – was their wedding, but they applied for a New York marriage licence the week before and it sure looked like someone was getting hitched!
Beyonce was spotted with what looked like a baby bump in New York this week, and sources close to the couple apparently have confirmed the pregnancy. Many congratulations to the couple if the rumors are true.
Perhaps tellingly, Beyonce’s glittery, tacky clothing line, House of Dereon, which is designed together with her Mom, Tina Knowles, recently launched a range of girls – and baby – clothing. And not without controversy.
Adverts running in the press this week for the glittery, tacky, little girls’ clothes show very young girls plastered in makeup and accessorized with feather boas, looking like mini pageant queens. I’m guessing that the advert is trying to show how rich little girls play dress-up, but to me, it just looks nasty. It’s bad enough that magazines aimed at teenagers show skinny, rich kids dressed in barely-there designer clothes. And now the advertising world has to make six-year-olds feel they aren’t rich enough, skinny enough, or blinged out enough?
If Beyonce and Jay-Z really are expecting (and not just had a cheeseburger for lunch) I hope she’ll be thinking whether she’d like her potential daughter dressed and styled in clothes like the ones she has for sale?
