On Pregnancy Rumors:
All kidding aside, Jay Z was quick to defend his wife against rumors that she wasn’t really pregnant with Blue back in January. “It’s just so stupid. You know, I felt dismissive about it, but you’ve got to feel for her. I mean, we’ve got a really charmed life, so how can we complain? But when you think about it, we’re still human beings,” he explains. And even in hip-hop, all the blogs — they had a field day with it. I’m like, We come from you guys, we represent you guys. Why are you perpetuating this? Why are you adding fuel to this ridiculous rumor?””
One rumor that turned out to be true, however, was the couple deciding to trademark their daughter’s name. Jay Z explains that they got the trademark so others couldn’t exploit the name for profit. “People wanted to make products based on our child’s name and you don’t want anybody trying to benefit off your baby’s name,” he says. “It wasn’t for us to do anything; as you see, we haven’t done anything.”
LOL at “We Represent You Guys”… Hey Jay-Z we gotta get our gwap some kinda way too! Break us off a little proper chunk and we’ll spare you the funky stuff.
