Update: Beyoncé is rocking a new hairdo and the world has managed to sneak another peek at baby Blue Ivy. Beyoncé and her baby girl were photographed on the streets of Manhattan. While outdoors, the baby was covered with a white blanket but that didn’t stop photographers from getting a picture of the little girl and her famous mommy while they were in an undisclosed building. The picture popped up on a Beyoncé fan page on popular blogging site Tumblr. Blue with her chubby cheeks and headful of black hair bares a strong resemblance to the “Single Ladies” singer.
In addition to her baby girl, the songstress was sporting a bunch of blonde box braids, similar to the black ones sported by her younger sister and current “It” girl Solange. The braids are reminiscent of her Destiny’s Child days when she was commonly seen with corn-rowed hair.
While Beyoncé hangs out with Blue, there are rumors circulating that she may be at the top of the list of possible judges for American Idol. According to Entertainment Wise, show producers are considering Beyoncé because they want someone who is “relevant, younger and established.” There has been no word from the singer’s rep on whether or not the story is true.
Beyoncé has also been in the headlines for her constant praise of first lady Michelle Obama. She recently recorded a video reading a personal letter to the first lady for the president’s reelection campaign. “I wrote a letter to the first lady because I wanted her to know that I’m very grateful for everything she’s done for our country and also for women around the world,” she said in the clip. She went on to praise the fairer Obama for being a role model. “Michelle is the ultimate example of a truly strong African-American. She is a caring mother, she’s a loving wife, while at the same time she is the first lady!”
