Jay-Z releases song with Blue Ivy Carter in it; other patients complain about Jay and Beyonce
Blue Ivy Carter, the annointed offspring of Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z, is only a couple of days old, but she's already a star: Daddy included samples of her crying after delivery in his new song Glory feat. B.I.C., which he made available on his website Life+Times.com on Monday afternoon. Apparently the $1.3 million they spent to privatize Lenox Hill Hospital in New York included recording equipment.
Jay-Z, a.k.a. Shawn Carter, rapped about his "greatest creation," calling Blue Ivy "a younger, smarter, faster me" who was made with a "small pinch of Hov, a whole glass of B." He also added some heartfelt joy about his dream being fulfilled, saying, "last time the miscarriage was so tragic, we was afraid you disappeared but nah, baby you magic." If that doesn't make you cry just reading it, you can listen to the whole thing below.
Meanwhile, on the gossipy side, not everything was sunshine and rainbows at Lenox Hill. Besides TMZ noting a group of new mothers complaining that they felt "neglected" by starstruck hospital staff, a father of preemie twins says the couple's bodyguards prevented him from visiting the neonatal intensive care unit because they were keeping an area private.
"Three times they stopped me from entering or exiting the NICU and it happened once on Friday — just because they wanted to use the hallway," 38-year-old Neil Coulon told the New York Daily News. "They should have been more strategic about it. These are children with problems in intensive care and you're just going to take over the hospital like you own it? All I want is an apology."
And while a hospital spokesperson the Daily News she hadn't heard of the complaints, Coulon said he didn't care how much Z and B paid the hospital. All he knew is that his wife was stressed and worn out from a Wednesday C-section and they were concerned about their own family. "This is the NICU. Nobody cares if you’re a celebrity. Nobody is star-gazing. They just want to see their children," he said.
It will be interesting to see if anyone files a lawsuit over this alleged treatment, because we know one thing: If Jay-Z and Beyonce's goons had kept us from seeing our young Baby Juice* after her birth, The Juice* would have fought the KISS Army to get to the NICU.
