Blue Ivy just can’t win lately.
According to Radio.com
A new Change.org petition is making a simple request of Beyoncé and Jay Z: comb Blue Ivy’s hair.
According to NY Mag, a photo of the couple’s daughter with matted hair coming back from their recent Hamptons vacation hit the Internet. The kid’s ‘do at that point in the day was apparently too much to handle for some, who called out the parents for not taking proper care of Blue Ivy’s hair.
That drove one Jasmine Toliver to create a petition demanding that Bey and Jay take better care of their daughter’s hairdo.
“As a woman who understands the importance of hair care,” Toliver, from Brooklyn, N.Y., wrote, “It’s disturbing to watch a child suffering from the lack of hair moisture. The parents of Blue Ivy. Sean Carter A.K.A Jay-Z and Beyoncé has failed at numerous attempts of doing Blue Ivy Hair. This matter has escalated to the child developing matted dreads and lint balls. Please let’s get the word out to properly care for Blue Ivy hair.”
The petition itself is simple, Toliver’s additional comments notwithstanding. “Comb her hair,” it reads. “Sincerely, [your name].”
It might seem like a fringe opinion — and it still largely is — but as of Wednesday night (June 11), the petition has garnered 725 signs, just 275 short of the 1,000 apparently needed in Toliver’s mind.
“because no child with billions of dollars should look like a shlep,” reads one comment from a signer of the petition.
“Comb that baby’s hair!!” another demands. “She is a beautiful baby and needs that head snatched!! You got enough money so get it done.”
According to Huffington Post:
Robin Thicke’s latest music endeavor may also be an attempt to get back together with estranged wife Paula Patton. The “Blurred Lines” singer will name his next album after her and call it “Paula,” his rep confirmed to Us Weekly.
Thicke debuted the first single off the album, “Get Her Back,” in May at the Billboard Music Awards, and if you can’t tell by the title, it’s about, uh, getting someone back. “Paula” will be Thicke’s seventh album, but it is the highly anticipated follow-up to the chart-topping “Blurred Lines,” which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart and was nominated for a Grammy. It’s set for release on July 1. Thicke is scheduled to debut more new material off the record at the BET Awards on June 29.
Chris Bosh explains in a recent interview with ESPN what people say about him that hurts his feelings.
According to MadameNoire:
Bosh has seen some of these memes and comments on the Internet, and while he can deal with a lot a criticism, he doesn’t take too kindly to individuals questioning his sexuality. This is what he said in an interview with ESPN:
“I read it all…For a while, they were questioning my sexuality. They still do. They were questioning my sexuality, questioning my game. And I’m like, ‘Why are they all messing with me?’ I didn’t do anything to anybody. I didn’t do nothing. I just came here to play basketball. And they’re like, ‘Oh, he’s not a real superstar.’ I never cared about being a superstar.”
When it comes to people calling him “Christina Bosh” and taking further jabs at his masculinity, Bosh had this to say:
“What am I supposed to do? You want me to have cornrows and tats on my neck and just punch somebody in the face when they score on me? It’s crazy. It’s impossible. I can’t do that and play. That’s never been who I am.
I’m just going to be myself. I shouldn’t have to apologize for that. If people don’t understand that, then they don’t understand it. I’m not going to try to be somebody I’m not.”
