Blue Ivy continues to make news. Maternity patients at Lenox Hill Hospital are complaining they faced a series of indignities because of the increased security at the hospital over the weekend, which included having to wait hours to visit their own babies.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z haven't responded to the complaints. However, less than two days after Blue Ivy's birth, Jay-Z posted a new song online about his daughter. The lyrics to "Glory" reveal Beyoncé once suffered a miscarriage and that the baby was conceived in Paris.
Snoop Dogg was arrested for drug possession in Texas over the weekend after police allegedly found weed on the rapper's tour bus. Snoop was issued a citation and released. Turns out the arrest was made at the same Sierra Blanca highway checkpoint where Willie Nelson was busted last year.
Even though she's nominated for seven awards, Katy Perry has decided not to attend tomorrow's People's Choice Awards as previously planned. The awards show would have been her first outing since the announcement of her divorce from Russell Brand. Perry tweeted a message to fans: "I want to thank u all for voting for me, fingers crossed! #KATYCATS."

Are they or aren't they? Evan Rachel Wood was spotted wearing what looked like a several-karat diamond engagement ring while out with Jamie Bell, her longtime on-again/off-again boyfriend. No comment yet from her rep. Although when similar buzz happened last fall, Wood tweeted to set the record straight: "Sorry to disappoint, but I have been wearing that diamond on my left hand since I was 14. It was my aunts. Any engagement rumor is false."
