Beyoncé & Jay-Z To Shoot First Music Video In Space?

As report claim they've donated some of baby Blue's gifts to charity...

Beyoncé and hip-hop hubby Jay-Z are reportedly hoping to become the first artists to make a music video in space.

The couple - who welcomed their first child Blue Ivy last weekend -  apparently want to go where no popstar has been before, with record execs already making inquires about shooting scenes on one of Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic craft.

According to The Sun, flights on the six-seater spaceships are to due to launch this year and will cost £780,000 per person to be blasted 70,000ft into the Earth's atmosphere.

It is thought that Queen B and Jay will film their promo when passengers experience six minutes of weightlessness, with a source telling the tabloid: "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 other related news, the Run The World (Girls) singer and Jigga are said to have spent a cool £1million on their new daughter, apparently buying a £400,000 gold rocking horse, a £13,000 cot and a £10,000 crystal-incrusted highchair.

Despite their extravagant purchases, they are thought to have donated some of Blue's baby presents to charity, with an insider telling the Daily Star: "They’ve been sent literally hundreds of gifts in the past few days.

"Oprah gave a huge trunk of children’s books and others like P Diddy, Kanye West, Rihanna and Mariah Carey have all been sending luxurious baby treats.

“Jay-Z and Beyoncé have decided to donate a massive selection of the presents to local charities for young mothers.

“They’ve already got the most precious gift – their new baby daughter – so they want to help out other parents who haven’t been as fortunate.”

Since Blue's birth last Saturday (7th January), Jigga has reportedly been a model husband to Beyoncé, with the source adding: "Jay won’t let her lift a finger. He’s been changing the diapers and getting his hands dirty.”
