In an effort to shut down the media frenzy, Beyonce and Jay-Z did the unthinkable today by unveiling their beautiful baby girl to the world themselves! That’s why I love Jay and Bey, they stay ahead of the game! Take note, lol!
The Carter’s attached a small note to their fans:
WELCOME BLUE IVY!!!
With parents like Beyonce and Jay-Z, you had to know that it wouldn’t be long before retailers would begin to cash in on baby “Blue Ivy’s” name. According to TMZ, multiple marijuana dispensaries in the Hollywood area have named their product after the couple’s daughter as seen in the picture above.
Bey and Jay recently filed paperwork with the courts to have their daughter’s name trademarked. The Washington Post is reporting that the couple filed paperwork with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on January 26th, to protect their baby’s name from those looking to cash in on her famous name.
Furthermore, they also plan to reserve her name for their own furniture line of baby products, including carriages, diaper bags, baby cosmetics, and other items. Unsurprisingly, the patent office has already been receiving requests to patent the name “Blue Ivy” which have been denied!
Fashion designer Joseph Mbeh submitted an application to trademark “Blue Ivy Carter NYC” for a line of children’s clothing that he was planning to pitch to Beyonce and Jay-Z, however his request was also denied.
While most of these requests have been shut down, one boutique in Wisconsin actually does have a trademark on the name “Blue Ivy” and they received approval in August 2011. What are the odds of that happening??? Sounds like there may be a leak in the organization!
I’m sure Bey and Jay went into hustle mode as soon as they found out they were pregnant, and began throwing around names. The baby’s name was planned well before she was born! I’m willing to bet that whoever the leak is has a deal with the boutique in Wisconsin. That’s just my theory, believe what you want…..
Anywho, be on the look out for “Blue Ivy” goods and apparel coming soon! Cha-ching!
Earlier this week it was announced that both Chris Brown and his former girlfriend Rihanna will BOTH be performing at the 2012 Grammy Awards, but they are now in the SPOTLIGHT for a very different reason.
Rumor has it that Chris Brown spent more than 5 hours in Rihanna’s dressing room while they were both on site for rehearsals at the Sony lot in Los Angeles. Sources say Chris’ girlfriend Karrueche Tran was nowhere in sight; but to put the nail in the coffin, KT tweeted the following message soon after:
WOW! To be continued…

They say, the best way to shut down a rumor is to tell it yourself! Well Khloe is throwing it in everyone’s faces to see that Alex Roldan is her REAL father and she is not ashamed [which she shouldn't be].
I told you in an earlier post [READ full story here: http://www.mahoganyvogue.com/2012/01/khloe-kardashians-real-father-revealed.html ] that the story was about to come out and the Kardashians were going to tell it themselves during a special episode of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians”, that Khloe’s real father is in fact her mother, Kris Jenner’s hairdresser of over 30 years! The story was confirmed today when Khloe’s younger sister, Kylie, tweeted the above pic with the caption below:
We can finally lay this rumor to rest in the TRUTH. May it now R.I.P….
It has become the norm for reality shows to begin with a bang….LITERALLY! The new season of “Basketball Wives” will be no different! Let’s just say bottles was poppin’, LITERALLY, and the word BITCH is thrown around here and there. Although the ladies [and I use that term loosely] are still taping, Season 4 will premiere on Monday, February 27th, on VH1 at 8pm ET. Until then, check out the Season 4 Super Trailer below:
It’s been nearly 14 years since R&B powerhouses Monica and Brandy debuted their hit song “The Boy Is Mine.” But this time around don’t expect the now grown women to exchange their claims on a cheating mate. They both have a new man, kids, and a “New Life.” They are both in a different place now with regards to their friendship, careers, and their personal lives. Their growth shows in this new track, “It All Belongs to Me.” Listen below:
“Love & Hip Hop” star Somaya Reece also debuted a new song this week after the premiere of the semi-reunion show which I have not seen yet because this stupid hotel does not have VH1! But that’s neither here nor there….By the way, what did you all think of the format of the reunion show anyway??? Here’s a look at Somaya’s new video for “Classy Girl” for those of you who have not seen it yet:
When “Basketball Wives” star Evelyn Lozada and NFLer Chad Ochocinco first announced that they were engaged, the world wondered if Evelyn would take Chad’s last name, which he LEGALLY changed from “Johnson” to “Ochocinco” on August 29, 2008. Evelyn even hinted on the show, that Evelyn Ochocinco is NOT an option, and do you blame her?
Well, it looks as though Evelyn has put the fire to her new fiance, and he will be officially and legally changing his surname back to “Johnson” when the couple exchanges their nuptials on the 4th of July!
Good for them! Expect the Chad & Evelyn show coming soon! I’m sure it will be televised. OAN: Chad is a marketing genius, so I’m sure his “Ochocinco” jersey will be selling like hot cakes!
Speaking of Evelyn, peep this throwback photo of she and then BFF Jennifer Williams before the implants and surgeries. I swear Jen looks just like Mary J. Blige to me!
