Beyonce fans left perplexed over son's official name

  Beyonce fans left perplexed over son's official name Beyonce has left some fans perplexed as to the official name of her baby son. The megastar shared the first photo of herself with her newborn twins on her official Instagram page on Friday (14Jul17), with the happy snap racking up over 4.7 million likes in just six hours. Beyonce, 35, posted a snap of her wearing a billowing purple robe over turquoise panties and a matching turquoise veil while cradling her two babies, adding the caption, "Sir Carter and Rumi 1 month today" with a string of emojis including praying hands and ones representing her, dad JAY-Z, daughter Blue and the new additions. While fans have been thrilled to finally get a glimpse of the infants, who wore born last month (Jun17), many have questioned the star on her baby son's name, as her rapper husband Jay was born Shawn Carter. "Wait? So Beyonce's kids are called Blue Ivy Carter, Rumi Carter and Sir Carter Carter?" one user wrote on Twitter, while another added: "So the baby is Carter Carter or Sir Carter Carter? Is Rumi also a sir, or is Rumi a she, if she is, is she Lady Rumi?? so many questions." However, another social media user with the handle @beygency showed unwavering support for Beyonce, and humorously stated the little boy should be referred to as Sir Carter until any further explanation was made. "Listen y'all, she specifically put Sir Carter and Rumi, not Sir and Rumi Carter.

Eight babies and their parents were chosen from a group of 400 hopefuls to exclusively view Mondrian 's paintings at the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague, which houses the world's largest Mondrian collection.

The babies, ranging from four months to one-and-a-half-years-old, and their parents were allowed an early morning stroll through the museum unhindered by the usual crowds, the organiser said.

"From four months onwards, babies can see colours and contrast and for this purpose, Mondrian's works are the most ideal," said Brigitte Timmermans of Kunstfanaatjes ("Little Art Fanatics").

Mondrian, who shortened his name from Mondriaan in later years, is best known for his canvas "Victory Boogie Woogie", considered one of the most important works of the 20th century.

The babies also showed a particular preference for the 1944 painting, because of its bright and contrasting colours of mainly blue, red and yellow, Timmermans said.

PSV land Marco Van Ginkel on loan

  PSV land Marco Van Ginkel on loan Marco Van Ginkel has re-joined Dutch side PSV on a season-long loan the club have confirmed. The two teams have agreed on terms of what was a much-anticipated move. Twitter: PSV en Chelsea hebben een akkoord bereikt over een overstap van Marco van Ginkel. https://t.co/GEUGInLXUi (@PSV) The Dutch side have confirmed that the player will now aim to re-join his team-mates for their pre-season training camp in Switzerland. Previous reports have suggested that the deal could include an option to buy the midfielder at the end of the season, while Chelsea could also include a buy-back option in the deal, as they have done in a number of transfers this summer according to reports. Van Ginkel spent the second half of last season at the Dutch club as he rekindled some of his best form. The Dutch international will want to be playing regular first-team football with the World Cup on the horizon this summer.

Broadway Boogie Woogie . The Dutch artist Piet Mondrian (1872-1944) was a pioneer in “abstraction.” Each painting was worked and reworked, built layer by layer toward an equilibrium of form, color and surface.

"We find that the babies are able to focus really well on the 'Victory'. They were fascinated by it and to see this was something quite special."

Even without being able to talk, it was clear from their responses that they also appreciated Mondrian's other works, she said.

"The parents -- who are often a bit hamstrung having to look after a small baby -- also enjoyed the day out," Timmermans added.

Although the pilot project, called "Boogie Woogie, Baby!", is believed to be a first for the Netherlands, the idea of taking infants to view art has already been implemented in Belgium, Germany and the United States, she said.

A second excursion is planned to a museum in the southern city of Dordrecht in a few months, she said.

This year marks the centenary of the founding of De Stijl ("The Style"), the Dutch art movement of which Mondrian was a part, known for its bold horizontal and vertical lines encasing blocks of primary colours.
