Comedian Pokes Fun at Jay-Z and Beyonce with ‘Glory’ Song Parody
Every since Blue Ivy Carter entered the world on Jan. 7, her doting parents, Jay-Z and Beyonce, had been fodder for the tabloids. Her birth, and the couple's extraordinary efforts to secure their privacy, is now the subject of a song parody.
Comedian Rob Ryan pokes fun at Jayonce on his reworking of 'Glory,' the dedication song Hov recorded for his first child with Bey-Bey. The funnyman created the track for BlackBook, and while we think his rhymes are a little facetious, the tune made us chuckle in a few parts.
On the song, Ryan spoofs the reports that the couple spent $1.3 million to seal off Lenox Hill Hospital's neo-natal care unit, which allegedly blocked other parents from seeing their own babies. For the record, a hospital rep has vehemently denied those reports and a State Health Department spokesman found no evidence of any wrongdoing.
"The most amazing feeling I feel, is closing down floor 6 of Lenox Hill," Ryan starts off on the parody track, twisting Jay-Z's original rhymes on the heartfelt song. "Baby I blocked the ICU, it’s a pretty jerk move its true … true … sorry."
Ryan also teases Jayonce for naming their daughter Blue Ivy Carter. He raps, "Named my girl Blue Ivy / Sounds like a villain straight out of 'Batman Volume 3'." He then adds, "Everybody goes through some stuff / Unless you pay 1.3 million so you don't have to go through stuff."
In the end, Jay-Z and Beyonce will have the last laugh. Hov's original song 'Glory' made Blue Ivy Carter the youngest person to ever debut on the Billboard charts. Furthermore, fans will be able to buy the track via iTunes on Jan. 17.
