That’s One Way to Boost Tourism: Blue Ivy Named Honorary Citizen of Croatia
Beyonce and Jay-Z may have copyrighted Blue Ivy’s name to keep people from capitalizing on their daughter’s residual fame, but one thing they can’t do is stop people from offering her dual citizenship it seems because that’s exactly what Major Pjerino Bebic of the island of Hvar in Croatia has offered the five month old.
“We woke up this morning, took a nice little walk, passed by this beautiful blue tree. I think it’s Blue Ivy, which would be quite appropriate!”
Curious stans have been traveling to the island in droves ever since and Major Pjerino Bebic is only trying to increase those rates (and repay Blue Ivy’s inadvertent kindness for being born, I suppose) by offering her citizenship on the island. He said in a letter to the family:
“The story of the origin of the name of your daughter has brought enormous media attention and therefore tourist promotion to the town and island of Hvar. Because of this, I have decided to confer on your daughter the status of honourary citizen of the town of Hvar.”
Mama Bey and papa Jay can probably come and go as they please too, as long as they promise to post plenty of pics letting people know about the wonderful Croatian people, places, and sites. SMH At this rate, Lonely Planet will have to boost Hvar’s current standing as the fifth best vacation destination in 2012 to somewhere near the number one spot. Here’s a look back at that video that put Blue Ivy on the Croatian map.
Can Major Bebic count on you to plan your next vacay to the island of Hvar?
