Music couple Jay-Z and Beyonce's newborn daughter has made its way to the small screen courtesy of a "Saturday Night Live" skit with a parodied version of select celebrities.
In the parody, spoofed versions of music veteran Prince and rap star Nicki Minaj all made appearances.
You know you've arrived when you get your own "Saturday Night Live" skit. Beyoncé and Jay-Z's daughter Blue Ivy Carter was at the center of a parody starring Maya Rudolph (Beyoncé) and Jay Pharoah (Jay-Z). The famous couple were visited by some familiar faces including Prince, LL Cool J, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Taylor Swift, and Bon Iver, played by Justin Timberlake. Even Nicki Minaj (Nasim Pedrad) stopped by to sing a lullaby inspired by her Grammy performance. But it didn't go over too well with Blue's folks. "Nicki please, you're scaring him," said Beyoncé. "Him? I thought Blue was a girl," responded Nicki. "No, I meant Prince," said B. (Rap-Up)
Last month, comedian Rob Ryan spoofed Jay's "Glory" Blue Ivy Carter tribute by making his own "Lenox Hill Glory" record.
"The most amazing feeling I feel, is closing down floor 6 at Lenox Hill," Ryan raps, "Baby I blocked the ICU, it's a pretty jerk move it's true... true... Sorry/Locked doors and blocked wards/Reinformced by my security guards/Didn't want people seeing/I made sure there was not a human being/This day belongs to Hova/So all babies go move on ova/Hurry. Scurry. Scurry. Sorry.../Everything that I paid for..., my own suite, I wish I would have paid more/God makes no mistakes, I made a few/Like not buying the whole Godd*mn ICU" ("Lenox Hill Glory")
The couple's newborn daughter has had a significant impact on Beyonce's recent fashion choices.
She's taken two nights off from new mommyhood this week to support hubby Jay-Z, but Beyoncé needn't look further than her fingernails to be reminded of the new girl running the world these days: daughter Blue Ivy Carter. "You see the blue nails. You see the IV tattoo on her finger. It's clear that she was bringing Blue along with her because she doesn't want to be away from her for a second," Beyoncé's longtime manicurist, Lisa Logan, tells PEOPLE of her Monday manicure. So how is the newly manicured mom adjusting to motherhood? "Amazingly," Logan says. "When I see her, I'm like, 'Girl, you're glowing.' She's so elated. Motherhood is written all over her face. She's owning it and wearing it well." (PEOPLE)
Last week, Jay and Bey unveiled their daughter's photos.
Rapper Jay-Z and wife Beyonce unveiled highly-anticipated pictures of their new baby daughter Blue Ivy Carter on Friday, opting to post intimate family shots on social networking site Tumblr rather than selling them to the highest bidder. The couple posted five photos which show the newborn, already sporting a head of long black hair, being cuddled by her proud parents and capturing intimate moments of family life. (Reuters)
