Jay-Z and Beyonce have yet to release any photos of their new baby daughter, Blue Ivy Carter -- but their pal 50 Cent couldn't help himself! On Monday, the rapper posted what he claimed were pictures of Blue Ivy -- but were actually Photoshopped illustrations of Jay-Z's face affixed to a baby's body.
"Congratulations to JAYZ and Beyonce BABY #BlueIvyCarter IS GEORGOUS," 50 Cent wrote, linking to a Twitpic of the images.
Fans who clicked on the creepy-hilarious pictures wondered if 36-year-old 50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson III, had created them himself. No way, he replied -- he just grabbed it off Facebook.
"I would never make a picture like that its all over my time line," he tweeted. "Yal play to much...They will pay a million dollars for a picture of that baby lol trust me."
All kidding aside, it sounds like the birth of little Blue made 50 Cent nostalgic for the birth of his own son, 14-year-old Marquise.
"I'm sure Jay is the happiest he's ever been in his life. I remember when MARQUISE was born I was so happy," he reminisced. "I want to have another kid one day."
The congratulations have been pouring in for Beyonce and Jay-Z, with everyone from Gwyneth Paltrow to Snooki tweeting their best wishes. But not everyone was thrilled about the new bundle of joy. The New York City health department conducted an investigation into Lenox Hill Hospital, after two people filed complaints that the Carter family's security guards prevented them from visiting the neonatal unit. The hospital denied that Beyonce got special treatment or interfered with hospital services, and the health department has since closed the case.
Meanwhile, no less than the mayor of New York City is defending their right to VIP treatment. "If (the hospital) got paid a lot of money and it let them provide services to other people who don't have insurance or can't afford it, I'm not so sure it's a bad thing," Mayor Mike Bloomberg said in a press conference on Wednesday. "Full-paying patients are very valuable to hospitals in this day and age."
You hear that? In a recession, hospitals need all the Jay-Zs and Beyonces they can get!
