Beyonce and Jay-Z could have made millions of dollars by releasing the first photos of Blue Ivy Carter to a weekly tabloid such as People or Us Weekly, but instead there is a new trend in Hollywood: releasing photos on your own terms.
Beyonce and Jay-Z used tumblr to display the first photos of their adorable baby daughter. And in turn, they are continuing the trend that many have started before them.
When celebrities release photos on their own terms, they potentially lessen the aggression that comes from the paparazzi attempting to get the “first shot” of a celebrity baby.
