Here We Go: Crazy Video Claims Blue Ivy Isn’t A Real Baby

April 4, 2012  |  

Please don’t shoot the messenger here. I’m just relaying the craziness that occurs on YouTube, and the huge amount of idle time people obviously have on their hands.

A few days ago, Ready Set Gossip wrote an elaborate 8-point article insisting that like Beyonce’s “fake pregnancy,” her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, also isn’t real—and now they’ve created a YouTube video of “proof” to go with it. I know, trust me, I know.

Basically, the site (and video) claims that Beyonce is walking around with one of those extremely lifelike reborn dolls that women who have had a miscarriage sometimes use to cope because whenever Bey is seen walking with Blue, her feet and arms are always in the same position. But, because she’s a reborn doll, Blue’s photos on the Hello Blue Ivy Carter Tumblr page do look real—except for the fact that her hands are in an odd position and she’s awfully “aware” for a 1-month-old. (I hope this explanation doesn’t mean this is all starting to make sense to me.)

Considering these writers have the same vantage point of Bey and her daughter that everyone else does, they can’t say she’s fake anymore than anyone else can claim she’s real, but in the interest of playing Devil’s Advocate, I just don’t see what would be the purpose of this elaborate baby scheme. Ready Set Gossip claims Bey is greedy for attention and since her last album didn’t do so well so she needed to do something big to remain in the spotlight. I don’t think she’d ever risk her nearly perfect image trying to pull off something this crazy—besides how do you fake a child growing up?

Anyway, check out this crazy video, with background music provided by Lisa Stansfield (they know they are a fool for that) and tell us your thoughts. Is this an example of haters gone hate or are they on to something?
