If you’re a celebrity, having babies is a lucrative business. There’s the announcement, the exclusive interview, and of course, the much anticipated first photos.
Well, Beyonce doesn’t plan on cashing in. According to the Huffington Post, one magazine editor says she and Jay-Z “are one of the most private couples. We have made several offers to their people about running exclusive images of mother and baby and no one has responded.”
When celeb parents decide to pimp their babies out for magazine covers, part of the deal is also that the baby can’t be seen in public for a few weeks before and after the magazine hits newsstands.
“If Beyonce and Jay-Z do decide to share their child with the world, they will probably go the same route as Tom Cruise and Katie [Holmes],” the editor continues.
“Instead of selling the images to a weekly publication, they would give them away for nothing to lock in a cover of a monthly like Vanity Fair. But knowing this couple, it is unlikely we will ever see a staged picture of the child.”
Also, let’s be real. Jay-Z basically owns hip-hop now. They don’t exactly need the money.
And yes, Jay-Z and Beyonce are also very private. In fact, when they had that super-secret wedding back in 2008, they refused to even admit that they tied the knot. Now that’s hardcore.
BEYONCE: Jay-Who? Nope, the name doesn’t ring a bell.
JAY-Z: Beyonce? Never heard of her. What is that, like a liqueur or something?
