JayZ & Beyonce Buy $80,000 Doll For Blue Ivy's First Birthday by Nobody: 6:50pm On Jan 14, 2013


When your parents are the highest paid celebrity couple in the world, you come to expect a bit more than chocolate cake and a few balloons for your birthday. Yes, even if you're 1.

Blue Ivy Carter, Beyonce and Jay Z's baby girl, turned 1 last week -- and her parents definitely went all out.

Aside from the $1 million a year nursery the power couple has for their girl at the Barclays Center, they reportedly spent $200,000 -- although we wouldn't be surprised if this number was slightly inflated -- on her first birthday party.

According to The Sun, the luckiest girl in the world got a custom-made $80,000 diamond-encrusted Barbie doll. An additional $95,000 went on pink and white roses (blue ivy must be out of season); $30,000 went on costumes, jewelry, and toys for baby Blue Ivy's friends and their parents; and of course, you can't have a party without a cake -- a $2,400 cake, that is.

“Nothing’s been too big or expensive for their little princess," a source told The Sun. "They wanted her first birthday to set the tone for the rest of her life. They work hard for their money and the first thing they want to spend it on is their baby girl."

Bey and Jay are not the first doting parents to pamper their little one with lavish gifts. From fancy cars to renting out an ice rink, celebrity moms and dads love to spend on their little ones. But given that Blue Ivy is too young to understand what she's got, we wonder what to expect when she grows up.

Its their money and they worked for it so I don't think its misplaced priority. Maybe to them family comes 1st.

$80,000 on a doll that will have its clothes stripped, hair cut, and head removed by a carefree toddler. Nice investment. That girl won't be spoiled at all.

Good 4 them though it's probably 2 gratify their status cos Blue Ivy is too little 2 appreciate the lavish gifts, esp the doll! She'll probably bite off d diamonds if they'll even let her play with it...lol

At 1 year of age, what's the difference? Babies and toddlers do not know the value of anything.

That doll will never experience those, Blue Ivy or wetin be her name should be careful rather, cos a doll of $80000 can do THINGS!

Firstly and perhaps most importantly it's their money so it's their business. However it would perhaps have been nicer to read that JayZ and Beyonce donated $80,000 to a Black community unemployment scheme or $80,000 to a Black Orphange or $80,000 to an education fund for young Black kids.

Blacks listen to their music and go to their shows the most,a little giving back would have been nice but hey it's their money but i can't imagine anyone who'd read this and be impressed,extravagance if you ask me undecided

it is probably one more evidence that the couple are being used to confuse blacks and lead them astray. Blacks that try to be white declare themselves useless to creation - my opinion.
