6Jay-Z’s Buying Beyoncé Her Own Island Now

beyonce jay-z

Not content with the space occupied by us mere mortals, Jay-Z has apparently decided to buy Beyoncé a private island on which to holiday with their daughter Blue Ivy. Because, you know, that’s just something that people do. The island, located in the North Abaco district of the Bahamas, is apparently worth over $3 million (which seems like quite a good price for a private island, truth be told), offers complete privacy. You know, until the paps get those super zoom lenses and take pics from a boat in the middle of the ocean.

From The Sun:

A source said: “Jay’s been looking for a private island for the family.

“He wants to turn it into his own Necker Island like Richard Branson.

“He’s getting it partly to mark their fifth wedding anniversary but also, with Bey back in the spotlight, it’s getting impossible for them to do normal things such as go to the beach with Blue.

“A private island means they’ll be able to have quality time with minimum staff and security.”

The island, a short flight from Miami, has patchy phone reception and no satellite TV. Sounds like a nightmare.

Love the random Richard Branson reference – and I can feel this, I guess. I sometimes wish I had my own island to live on so that I could separate myself from the large swath of idiots I encounter on a daily basis (because there’s too many of them and they’d overpopulate a single island), and if you’ve got the money, I guess why not. Still, with them it does come off as a bit showy and excessive and I’m not quite sure why. At least they won’t need government permission for this one.

    If I had lots of money I would buy an island. $3 million for an island in the Bahamas actually seems quite reasonable.

      Right?! I know Greece is selling some of their smaller islands and geographically it’s more convenient for me. I’d totally do it.

    FUCK THESE TWO FUCKS. I hate them both so fucking much and I don’t even know why. I don’t even think it has anything to do with my racism!

  3. Taeko says:

    I would buy an island if I had the money, for sure. Lucky bastards.

  4. DarkEmpress says:

    I would love a private island. Considering how much money they have, $3 mill is nothing. If I had that much money I would have bought one long ago.
