Since the birth of Blue Ivy Carter, many have wondered what inspired parents Jay-Z and Beyonce to come up with the unique name.
So offering her fans a little insight to what inspired them, B posted a poem by Rebecca Solnit called ‘A Field Guide to Getting Lost’ on her Tumblr.
Written in blue, the poem reads:
“The world is blue at its edges and in its depths. This blue is the light that got lost. Light at the end blue end of the spectrum does not travel the whole distance from the sun to us. It disperses among the molecules of the air, it scatters in the water. Water is colorless, shallow water appears to be the color of whatever lies underneath it, but deep water is full of this scattered light, the purer the water the deeper the blue.
The sky is blue for the same reason, but the blue at the horizon, the blue of the land that seems to be dissolving into the sky, is a deeper, dreamier, melancholy blue, the blue at the farthest reaches of the places where you see for miles, the blue of distance. This light does not touch us, does not travel the whole distance, the light that gets lost, gives us the beauty of the world, so much of which is in the color blue.”
Upon reading the poem, I guess it means that Beyonce is telling us that her love for Blue Ivy is forever, just like the ocean and the sky will forever be the colour blue.
Yes gentlemen, we know this makes you feel a tad awkward, however this is historical. Whenever you see an advertisement for female hygeine products, the blue liquid is supposed to represent blood. Well Always has finally taken a huge step forward in the marketing of tampons.
In a recent ad for Always, the blue liquid has been replaced with a red dot! No more blue. Copyranter reports this is not the first time this has happened. Apparently French ads have acknowleged the existence of blood for a while.
Still – this is a monumental event in North American history.
Former BLUE singer DUNCAN JAMES is quitting music to allow him more time to concentrate on his burgeoning career as a TV presenter in his native Britain.
The 28-year-old was set to unleash his latest UK single in a few weeks, but has now cancelled the release.
He says, “I’ve decided not to release the single AMAZED because there’s so many other exciting things going on at the moment.
“I just don’t have any time to devote to music. There are some amazing offers coming in for TV presenting and theatre roles, so I want to focus on those.”
