Beyonce’s baby is barely two days old and already causing problems — a Boston-area event planning company has been FLOODED with calls because its name is also Blue Ivy!
Veronica Alexandra, owner of Blue Ivy, tells TMZ she’s been getting phone calls, texts and Facebook posts from friends ever since the baby’s name was announced. She jokingly feels Beyonce must have known about her company, because before this weekend … her site came up first when someone Googled “Blue Ivy.”
Alexandra says she’d LOVE to plan all of Blue Ivy’s milestone celebrations and thinks B.I. should even be the face of the company. She tells us, “Clearly great minds think alike, and who better than our Blue Ivy to plan events for B&J’s Blue Ivy!?”
OK, this might be one of THE dumbest things I’ve ever heard. Not that Beyonce named her baby “Blue Ivy” (though I did like Ivy Blue much, much more), and not that there’s a same-name company in Boston, but that people are actually “flooding” Blue Ivy’s telephone lines with calls. I mean, about what? “Did you heeear? Beyonce named her baby after your company!” or “OMG is BEYONCE THERE?” “Can you tell me what room number JAY-Z is in?” “Where can I send the newborn some FLOWERS AND BLING?”
For real, what the hell could these calls have been about? And is it me, or do people seem to have WAY too much time on their hands these days that they can justify siting about, Googling Beyonce’s daughter’s name so they can call the first affiliated telephone number they can find? What’s wrong with these people? This might be one of the dumbest things I’ve heard in a long time.
Enlighten me, friends. If, for some reason, you thought it prudent to contact the Blue Ivy catering business because of Beyonce and her new child, what would you say? Bring the originality, folks.
