Beyonce and Jay-Z to film first music video in space?

Pair are the 'obvious option' for intergalactic shoot, say sources

Beyonce and Jay-Z are being lined up to star in the first music video to be recorded in space, according to reports.

The Sun says that record executives for the couple – who recently announced the birth of their daughter Blue Ivy Carter – are in talks with Richard Branson over the possibility of filming a video on board one of his Virgin Galactic ships.

A source said:

The label people have been talking about making a music video in space. Beyonce and Jay-Z seemed the obvious option. Everything is being done to make it happen.

In July last year, Muse‘s Matt Bellamy revealed that he had also been talking to Branson and hoped to persuade him to allow the band to record a track on one of his ships in outer space.

Beyonce and Jay-Z‘s daughter Blue Ivy Carter was born at a hospital in New York last Saturday (January 7). Speaking about their new arrival, the couple released a statement which said: “Her birth was emotional and extremely peaceful, we are in heaven. It was the best experience of both of our lives. We are thankful to everyone for all your prayers, well wishes, love and support.”

Earlier this week (January 10), Blue Ivy Carter became the subject of Satanist and Illuminati conspiracy theory rumours, with Twitter users suggesting that the name Blue stands for for ‘Born Living Under Evil’, while Ivy is there to mean ‘Illuminati’s Very Youngest’ or ‘Illuminati’s Victorious Youth’.

Other rumours, meanwhile, suggested that the name Blue Ivy is a nod to the devil, as spelt backwards the names read Eulb Yvi, which some have said is Latin for ‘Lucifer’s Daughter’.
