We’re finally treated with the entire article online, and in it Beyonce‘s hubby is making all types of super sweet revelations about his 18-month old daughter.
For starters, he’s learning how to swim — he never went as a kid — so he can teach her!
He also gets serious, talking about Trayvon Martin and the George Zimmerman acquittal, saying: “The thing is, that was not [just] a black kid. That’s someone’s child, period. How they won that trial was they played on America’s fear of black people. Still. What if this guy comes in your neighborhood? You want him out of your neighborhood, right? They did a good job of taking the thing of ‘This could be your child’ away and [instead] played on the fear that some black guy could come in your neighborhood and rob the neighborhood. We’re going backwards right now. Because we need to deal with it in a real way. Not put a Band-Aid on it. Not put more police in the projects. If we don’t improve the education process, it’s not going to work.”
He also says a bit more about how much his daughter loves both of her parent’s music: “She does like her mother’s music—she watches [Beyoncé’s concerts] on the computer every night. But my album came out and I don’t know if Blue ever heard any of my music prior to this album—she’s only 18 months old and I don’t play my music around the house. But this album was new, so we played it. And she loves all the songs. She plays a song and she goes, ‘More, Daddy, more … Daddy song.’ She’s my biggest fan. If no one bought the Magna Carta [album], the fact that she loves it so much, it gives me the greatest joy. And that’s not like a cliché. I’m really serious. Just to see her—‘Daddy song, more, Daddy.’ She’s genuine, she’s honest, because she doesn’t know it makes me happy. She just wants to hear it.”
And as far as those allegations of he and Queen Bey trademarking Blue’s name because they want to do a line of baby clothes, he says they did the legal action so no one else could.
“People wanted to make products based on our child’s name, and you don’t want anybody trying to benefit off your baby’s name. It wasn’t for us to do anything; as you see, we haven’t done anything. First of all, it’s a child, and it bothers me when there’s no [boundaries]. I come from the streets, and even in the most atrocious s— we were doing, we had lines: no kids, no mothers—there was respect there. But [now] there’s no boundaries. For somebody to say, This person had a kid—I’m gonna make a f—–g stroller with that kid’s name. It’s, like, where’s the humanity?”
