The Baby Diamond Bathtub can also be used for your pet ... or to hold your beverages.   (

(Newser) – If there ever was an infant truly impossible to shop for, it’s the child who will be born to Beyonce and Jay-Z—what baby shower gift can you possibly buy for a couple who already has a $1 million “mom van” and a 2,200-square-foot nursery? Fortunately for Kelly Rowland, who faced just such a dilemma, the $5,200 pink-Swarovski-crystal-covered Baby Diamond Bathtub exists. Rowland—who Beyonce has said will be known as "Auntie Kelly"—also had one other little issue to contend with when deciding upon her pricey gift.

You see, Rowland accidentally let slip earlier this month that Bey and Jay are having a girl. "I have no idea what I’m going to buy Beyonce at the baby shower because Jay is going to buy that little girl every single thing possible," said the former Destiny’s Child singer. "She won’t be spoiled but she will be very well looked-after." Hopefully the 3,000-pound tub, bedazzled with 44,928 crystals, makes up for that little oops. ABC News notes that, for those who don’t have a baby but simply must have the tub anyway, it can also be used as a beverage chiller.

Talk about HATERS...a person earns their money and then you have 99% of the idiots telling them how to spend it. Many of those that are called 1%ers earned their wealth with blood,sweat and tears. They worked while others slept, they went without to build up their wealth. How dare there be people out their to even suggest that people with money should DONATE to the "poor". Really? Doesn't everyone live in the same country? Stop believing all of the bullshit that educators tell you and think for yourselves on some things. I used to sit in my classrooms at college and think about how they don't teach you to be enterpenuers. They teach you to work for the benefit of others. How quaint. Now everyone wants the upper middle class and beyond to give to them...Boo Hoo.....If Beyonce and Jay-Z want to have expensive things for their baby. Let them! they earned their money, let them spend it...

Beyonce is insignificant. Jesus accomplished more during his time on earth. Question: Does Beyonce donate any part of her massive fortune to the poor? Poverty is rampant all over the world.

I DON'T CARE!!!.... .I just wanted to say that because I know the "Gestapo Police" will respond by telling me and I quote: (Try to imagine their whining voices as they say) "If you don't care than why did you post?"......... "I find it funny that people bother to post who don't care" BLAH...BLAH...BLAH!!!!
