Like it or not, it appears that Blue Ivy Carter will be a celebrity before she can talk. Jay-Z and Beyonce have no intention of keeping their daughter OUT of the limelight, because they’ve already trademarked her name! According to the NY Daily News, the celebrity parents want all rights to the name in hopes of using the famous baby’s name to sell products to us! The US Patent and Trademark office says the Carters want sole rights to use the name on baby items, cosmetics, clothing, toys, video games, movies, WHATEVER. We can already picture Beyonce’s mom stitching up a line of baby clothes.

    Best of luck to them and baby BIC. I still don’t think she gave birth (not that it is any of my business). Regardless, Beyonce is a beautiful woman.

    Want to see something?

    Check out this 1971 photo of Katherine Jackson (Joe, and the Jackson 5). You may have to scroll down some. By the time this photo was taken she had already given birth to 10 kids. Bless her heart. I say she stayed in shape by trying to outrun old Joe in the bedroom.

    Following the footsteps of J Lo pimping their kids for $$$$. Noone should pay or watch.

    Beyonce is very plain w/o makeup and always has sunglasses which help overcome the large forehead. She is far from a beautiful woman. JZ is far from a handsome man. They laugh at the poor blacks who buy their overpriced products and make them rich.

    Heck, they can trademark that name from here to kingdom come, and in every low rent neighborhood across the country, people will be naming their kids Blue Ivy.

    Jay-Z will never be anything more than a street level pimp/ dealer in many people’s eyes.

    Who would buy something just because it has that stupid baby name on it?

    They are like JLo, pimping the kid out.

    I thought they did it so others don’t profit on the daughter’s name. I don’t see anyone wearing his hideous clothes in NYC.

    By Walt Cliff, i mut say, very cool, high quality photos. Even though most of these entertainers were before my time, I can still appreciate their talent.

    I notice in the Jackson family photo, even back in 1971(when I was a wee, young one), Michael was above the rest of his family. Hindsight is an interesting thing.

    Walt, these pics make me remember the biggest nightmare of the 70’s: brown and orange as a choice for decorating! HIDEOUS!

    I’m wondering after looking over those pics how old Joe Cocker’s ma muct have been when he was born, because he looks prettty young there and she looks in her 70’s at LEAST! Maybe she found him on her doorstep or something and not her uterus!

    Beyonce used a surrogate she was not preg wonder why she tried that sham?? Egotist and money whore.

    Reta, Good to hear from you. You know we worry about you when you go missing. Hope you are feeling well.

    Yes, the decor of the 70’s was frightening (think Elvis’s jungle-room). I remember having gold shag carpet in one of our bedrooms and avocado everything in the kitchen…..after that I think was “burnt orange” ???

    There’s a store here in the Boston area called “Blue Ivy” and I’m sure it’s not the only business with that name. I wonder what the trademarking would do to those businesses?

    This was Plan B all along cause she was way overexposed putting out a video a month.
    Nobody was buying her music not even riding Gaga’s coattails.
    The shortest pregnancy in history yet the press avoids questioning.
    Eastwood got his arm twisted by the Entertainment Elites into doing a movie with her even though she can’t act at all or speak properly.
    Do you really think if given a choice Eastwood would have picked her for ASIB.
    See painful to watch interviews, not bright at all.

    These people will party with terrorist’s families as much as with our First Family at the whitehouse.
    Don’t think we’ever seen this before.

    Walt, thank you for thinking of me. This time I went missing because my computer was being worked on by my friend. He is cheap or free but does excellent work, only takes a long time to get it back to me because he works so much. I don’t complain, he’s well worth the wait.

    My back is coming along great, but still on pain pills and muscle relaxers for now and I have a fantastic machine I have to use every day for 30 minutes that I wear around my waist and it helps my bones heal faster, stronger and better.

    My breast cancer may not BE cancer after all the tests, but I have another test in 4 months to see if it has changed. The specialist has assured me tho that this type of lump is nothing to worry about but they will watch it anyway, mainly to keep me off the ceiling!

    Reta, Glad to hear that you have a cheap and capable tech for your computer. We can’t have you without it for too long. There’s no telling the insanity that Patrick & Strom would get into. Plus, we would have to have a telethon to raise the bail money. Denise would host (she is the only sane one here). Indy would be in charge of organizing everyone’s talents lol

    It sounds like more good news for your back. Please follow doctor’s orders and don’t re-injure it by over-doing it.

    Reta, I literally hear your written words about lumps (they aren’t suppose to be there..) and went through something similar. I was told by a specialist that they were 99 percent sure it wasn’t cancer and I asked them to test it anyway. It came back cancer (not the first either). I’m fine. It was just a lumpy growth (size of nickle) on my face. I’ve spent an enormous portion of my life in the outdoors for recreation.

    I am not telling you that to bring you down but I want you to be cautious. There is a lot of people here that care for you and we don’t want anything to happened to you. If YOU decide you need it checked before 4 months, then don’t hesitate to do it.

    First of all, Reta I hope they’re right that the lumps are not cancer. Wonderful news.

    Walt, those pictures are fabulous. I wonder if Elton’s mother ever let him borrow those boots.

    Love him or hate him, this guy is a loudmouth who doesn’t hesitate to tell it like he sees it- but there’s one thing he NEVER talks about: his prostate problem. Long story short: he LEAKS! He likes to project an image of macho virility, but under his custom made suits are custom made “diapers.” He’s VERY self-conscious and has absorbent but undetectable “panty liners” sewn into all his underwear, to avoid wet spots. Thanks to his arrogant behavior, he has more than a few enemies and he’s terrified his secret will be exposed and he’ll be forever ridiculed!
