Hamptons Real Estate

Perhaps it was inevitable that New York’s royal family would start investing in Hamptons real estate, what with Jay-Z branching out into all sorts of mogulite territories. After all, you can’t own part of a basketball team, be best friends with Warren Buffett, and throw annual an annual White Party without eventually falling victim to the siren song of the Jitney.
Still, it’s hard to imagine Jay-Z, Beyonce, and Blue Ivy Carter “summering” up in Bridgehampton, despite reports from Page Six that the family is looking into renting an 11-acre property in the area.

With the reopening of the Algonquin Hotel, we must consider who will be chosen for the honor of one of the 11 seats in the Algonquin Round Table.
Blue Ivy Carter
Beyonce and Jay-Z‘s baby isn’t even one week old, and already Ivy Blue Carter is making her influence known. Not only does she have the ability to allegedly shut down whole maternity wings and inspire music, but she’s now also the youngest human being on planet earth to ever be featured on a Billboard chart.
Two days after the arrival of their newborn child, Jay-Z and Beyonce would probably like nothing better than to go home, curl up with Blue Ivy Carter (or Babyonce, as we’re calling her), and sleep for a week. Alas, the downside of fame is that the press will not leave you alone until you hand them your first child. Literally. Well, okay, not literally. But the duo had to spend all day in front of the cameras, talking to the press, and avoid tabloids trying to negotiate the price for a cover shoot featuring their infant child. (And of course, Gwyneth Paltrow was one of the first celeb “friends” to tweet congrats to the couple and clear up confusion about the baby’s name…now will Jay please do an album with her???)
Good thing that Jay-Z is such a slick guy: not only did he and Beyonce release a statement about their bundle of joy, but he managed to tie her into marketing for his website with a song he put up exclusively on Life + Times.
“Glory (featuring B.I.C)” is a new single dedicated to Blue Ivy. Listen below.
