Black Exellence

On January 7th Blue Ivy Carter entered planet earth and since that date the internet has been turned on its axis. Her birth produced everything from ridiculous conspiracy theories tying her to the devil and a surrogate to outrage over her VIP treatment at Lennox Hill. Two parents went to the press to let the world know they were not able to see their children on the sixth floor because of Beyoncé’s security. The two outraged parents however didn’t think filing a complaint with the hospital or state would be needed and, to this day they have not file a formal complaint. The hospital confirms seven other families agreed they had no issues seeing their children and just noticed higher security on the floor . The State of New York dismissed any wrong doing on the hospital’s part as the complaints that were actually filed   were instigated by people not even at the hospital during the Carters stay but some outraged by the media reports. As the fifteen minutes of fame wears off for those parents, Lennox Hill also disputes the 1.3 million dollar price tag the tabloids gave the glorious event and gave it a measly eight hundred dollars per night.  It’s clear all the outrage over Baby Blue’s birth was for naught but it also got me to thinking so what if Jay-z spent 1.3 million dollars to bring HIS baby into the world? Who are you to tell a man who earned his money how he should spend it. What if he did decide to paint the sky blue for his daughter? In the nursery rhyme hush little baby the song focuses on what Papa’s going to buy his baby for their happiness and Jay-z seems to really take it to heart and despite the public deciding what would show more couth it’s ok that man has every right to spoil his princess in any way he sees fit. The media has gone to great lengths in the past year to put the spotlight on the relationships of black heavy weights from how they raise their children, to how they spend their money. Days after Blue Ivy’s birth Tina Fey and Jane Krakowski were asked by Matt Lauer if they were upset at the treatment Beyoncé and her baby received while at Lennox Hill. The two actresses revealed they got treatment like anyone else at the hospital, however if the truth is allowed in this scenario the rooms weren’t available at the time they gave birth. Even  Mayor Bloomberg wasn’t immune to the press and their thirst to paint the joyous event in a bad light as the mayor defended the hospital’s right to compete with the luxury room market. Blue Ivy’s birth is one of the most covered stories on the planet and it’s refreshing to see the world celebrating the birth of a black child. If you are tired of the coverage take a nap, but after years of having Suri and the Jolie-Pitts shoved down my throat I celebrate the Carters bringing their baby into the lap of luxury. The one percent vs the ninety-nine percent you are trying to paint in the media ends when a man wants to make sure his wife is comfortable while giving birth to his baby girl. I hope going forward Jay and Beyonce take a strong  stance when asked about this debacle and continues to nurture their “greatest creation” like the princess she is and who gone stop them?
