Jay-Z's Plan for Blue Ivy Could Ruin Her Life

Posted by Kiri Blakeley

Oh-oh. Is Jay-Z and Beyonce's baby, Blue Ivy, headed for a life of foot-stomping, whining, demanding spoiled princessdom? Sounds like it. Jay-Z says in a new interview that his precious bundle, Blue Ivy, will get whatever she wants.

Adds the rapper-mogul:

Then at the end of the day, I just know I'll probably have the worst, spoiled little kid ever.

I hope Jay-Z is just in the ecstatic flush of new fatherhood and doesn't really mean what he says.

I can tell you that some of the saddest, most miserable, most lost human beings on the planet are children of celebrities or the rich who have had everything handed to them. (Yes, I've met them.) An essential ingredient of a fulfilled life is a sense of accomplishment. Accomplishment comes with overcoming struggles. Struggles are only overcome when you have them.

I'm not suggesting that Jay-Z and Beyonce throw Blue Ivy onto the street and watch her pick through garbage cans while they enjoy a six-course meal. I'm saying that even if you can give your child everything, you don't. You say to your child, "Clean your room and you'll get five dollars." You don't say, "No need to clean your room, darling, the maid will do it. And, by the way, there's a mini-Lamborghini parked in the driveway for you."

Jay-Z, who came up from nothing, once said: "Belief in oneself and knowing who you are, I mean, that's the foundation for everything great." I hope he doesn't deny his daughter the chance of believing in herself, just like Jay-Z learned to do. Because when everything is handed to you, when you are never allowed to struggle, or work hard, or overcome a challenge, then belief in yourself is an impossibility.

Do you think Jay-Z is right or wrong to spoil Blue Ivy?

Hopefully he makes her earn things too so she learns not everything should be just given some things should be worked for.
