    I love this girl. She is a genuinely good person. I particularly enjoyed the press conference she called after the lip synching accusations. She just marched up to the podium, sang the National Anthem live, blew everyone out of the water with her incredible voice. And then simply smiled sweetly and asked "any questions?"! Pure class!

    I like Beyonce, but honestly, do people really care that much what goes on in her private life?

    we live in a society (a pretty shallow and stupid one at that) where we put celebs on golden pedestals and must know everything about their private lives... because us mere mortals can never attain whatever they have.

    how else can the "success" of the Kardashians be explained?

    Help me out here as I'm not American - what exactly are the Kardashians famous for/talented at? Are they just reality TV stars? At least someone like Beyonce actually is talented.

    At least someone like Beyonce actually is talented. Hardly much difference. Beyonce is just another pop singer, not much talent into that. There are countless of Beyonces already. I see her no different then Lady GaGa.

    ChibaChick: I may be mistaken on this but I think the Kardashians are famous for a couple of reasons, none of them having anything to do with talent, at least not theirs. The father of the older girls was Robert Kardashian, O.J. Simpson's defense attorney during the famous murder trial of his wife. The father of the younger girls, and the older ones current stepfather, is Bruce Jenner, who won a gold medal in the decathlon in the 1976 Olympics. Yes, I'm old enough that I remember him and being impressed by his athleticism.

    As for the girls and their mother, the best I can figure about their fame is that it started as a peripheral thing because of their father and stepfather but then one of the gals, Kim, dated a few famous men, Nick Lachey among them. I think the big catapult though was the sex tape she made with the singer Ray J and which was "accidentally" leaked on the Internet. You know how the world loves a sex tape of a D-list celebrity. That turned into the "reality" show and their fame spread like a case of crabs in a brothel.

    I'm not a huge fan of Beyonce's music but I do acknowledge that she's talented and until now, thought she was a pretty classy women. I absolutely loathe all of this soul-baring, "reality" nonsense though and am really disappointed she's going to be doing something along those lines. I really do think that celebrities deserve as much privacy as the rest of us even if their jobs are somewhat public. That doesn't mean they should have to have cameras in their and their families faces all the time and as fans, we do not "deserve" to know everything about them. That said, I think that the ones who live normal lives, for the most part, are able to avoid the parasitical paparazzi. That's why it is just weird to me when celebrities who already have more than enough fame and fortune want to do stupid reality shows, documentaries, whatever. I just can't understand the constant need for public navel gazing and putting everything out there.

    I know that might sound hypocritical given all that I know about the Kardashians but the honest truth is that I've never seen more than 10 minutes of their show and don't read gossip magazines. Even so, it's been pretty hard to avoid the way they've managed to inundate the media. Also, much to my chagrin, my 14-year old niece loves to tell me about the them. Man, I hope she grows out of that!

    Errr, Blue Ivy??? That's second only to Nevaeh (Heaven, backwards). Will she name her baby boy Bluetooth? Lol. Tackiness at its best.

    Beyonce may be just another pop singer but how does that make her anything like a Kardashian? You may not like her singing but come on, get real!

    Why is it tacky? How is it any different from name a child Midori, Aoki, Fumiko, Violet, Jade, Fern, Bianca, Ciara, etc.? It may not be a traditional name but to call it tacky just seems to be a bit narrow minded and mean spirited.

    forgot to mention all the "Real Housewives of (insert city here)" BS, Ice loves Coco, more Kardashian nonsense and pretty much anything on TLC and A&E these days.. pure garbage. Too many shows to name and 99% are crap

    Beyonce is now joining this mess with her "reality" expedition..

    You're being contradictory to yourself and don't realise that. Ivy and Blue are normal words, and eventually, names too. What make this child "unique" it is the combination of both. Did you realise that none of the names you mentioned are compounds, while Blue Ivy is? Take Bianca as example. Bianca alone is a fine name, it's a substantive adjective. But match it with another substantive, say, Bridge and we have "Bridge Bianca" (White Bridge), and both names become strange applied to a person. Or do you really think it's beautiful to name a child Midori Lettuce, Koen Aoki, Violet Sandra, Glossy Fern? That's what Beyonce did. English names are changing for worse, there's a book about it, I read some years ago. Neveah was an example. Wait for the compound names that are coming: Peter Carl, Britney Chelsea, Crystal Amber. Traditional, antique and refined names with 3 syllabes or names are disappearing: Providence, Gertrud, Ambrosia...giving room to 1 or 2 syllables, compound names.

    I don't see how I'm being contradictory at all. I have no idea if Blue Ivy is intended as a compound name or simply a first and middle name. Either way, how exactly is it tacky to have a compound name? You've got some awfully narrow views on what is and isn't acceptable as far as names go. As for my avatar, 1) I know darn well what ambrosia is, though the dessert is different in N.A. than it is in S.A. and I'm not a huge fan of it either, 2) it's an avatar and not my real name obviously but good try at the not-so-subtle dig, 3) for a guy who's so worried about elegance and refinement, you're not showing much of it in your posts.

      Readers, please don't obsess over the child's name.

    Ambrosia thanks! I did wonder what put the Kardashians on the map in the first place. I know Beyonce's music isn't everyone's taste,but I like it, I like her voice, her image and her attitude, and given we have just found out we are being posted to the US from April I am seeing someone like her as a far more preferable role model for my daughters than AKB48 to be honest.

    I can't stand people who glorify relationships, whether their own or in general. Then again, I've purposely sabotaged most of my past relationships, so what would I know.
