Beyonce posted some new photos of herself and of Blue Ivy on her exceedingly well-run Tumblr. I love Bey’s Tumblr so much. It really is a wonderful gift to her fans and to bloggers alike. Bey recently posted some older photos of her Sasha Fierce (and pre-Sasha) days too – go here to see. You’ll have to pardon me, but I find these “personal” photos so much more interesting. For one, Blue Ivy Carter has a legit CROWN.
Sigh… do you know how much I wanted a crown when I was little? I would have settled for a tiara, of course. I grew up in an era when those little plastic tiaras were not handed out like candy to little girls, like they are today. And as I realize more and more, my mother might have had a secret, anti-princess feminist agenda because she really did discourage me from ever going full-tilt princess when I was little. I wanted to be a princess for Halloween, but no, I was Tweety Bird (for like three years in a row!). I did end up getting my fake tiara when I was in college, though. Yes, I was that girl. I wore my plastic tiara as I did tequila shots. Because I’m a lady.
Anyway, these photos are cute. I have no doubt that Blue Ivy is spoiled and that her mom and dad treat her like a queen. I think it’s fine for now, but we’ll see what happens in the future. By the way, my favorite pic was Beyonce’s foot in Blue Ivy’s Tom Ford baby-heel. That’s a really great photo!
