“He don’t need press”. Is it really that difficult to say “doesn’t”???

Other than that? Yeah, I’m glad she didn’t go with Ickett. That’s pretty bad.

She’s okay with performing in a mostly-transparent dress on her
due date, but she’s kind of nasty when it comes to revealing the
little guy’s name?

I realize that it’s a personal choice but I’ve never understood when celebs wont release a name…

Why should they? They don’t owe us anything.

They feel the need to announce the pregnancy for media attention…so it would be least decent to follow through and announce the babies name and sex. To all of a sudden decide its a private matter is ridiculous!

My question is why shouldn’t they tell the name? When you have your children, don’t you tell people the name? In fact, where I’m from, people announce the birth in the paper, name and everything!

I don’t feel “owed” anything and I’m not even saying that she “should” tell the name. I just don’t understand it because telling the name doesn’t seem like a big deal to me.

Haven’t we already seen a picture of her baby? To me personally, having a picture out there is a way bigger deal than releasing the name.

Natalie – She didn’t really announce the pregnancy, it was just so obvious that the press found out.

i got this from another website,this is what she said:

My baby name is not called Ickitt, Pickit or Lickit, Thank You very much to all the Hollywood Press. He’s a baby, he don’t need press! I didn’t release the baby name because i didn’t think it was news! But I will be back with something newsworthy soon, till then, go pick on apple, satchel and moon unit.

Lots of Love Stickit!

It says on People.com that M.I.A. wrote on her blog that her baby’s name isn’t Ickett.

Definitely an icky name. 😉

Sorry, I had a flashback to a ’90s dance song when I saw that name. That’s NOT good.

Actually, this is not the baby’s name.

emily is right. M.I.A. posted on her myspace page that the press has got it wrong and this not her baby’s name, but she wouldn’t reveal the real name.

Peta

Well, thank goodness for that! *whew*

melanie

I don’t get the criticism regarding the release or non release of her baby’s name either. We found out she’s pregnant when she was like 6 months along or so, I don’t remember seeing a picture, she announced she gave birth a week after it happened and she’s generally a person who doesn’t flaunt every single detail of her private life. So what exactly are you complaining about, Natalie?
