Blue Ivy Telling Beyoncé and JAY-Z to Simmer Down at the 2018 Grammys Is Everything
The 2018 Grammys were packed with memorable moments, from Kesha’s emotional performance to Janelle Monae’s passionate Time’s Up speech to Camila Cabello speaking out on behalf of DREAMers. It was during the latter speech, though, that Beyoncé and JAY-Z’s daughter Blue Ivy showed everyone who’s the boss.
Seated between her famous mom and dad, Blue gestured first to Beyoncé and then to Jay, apparently to tell them to simmer down as they clapped mid-speech while Cabello spoke about immigration reform. Each parent leaned in to see what, if anything, Blue was trying to get their attention to say, but she seemed to want them to just stop clapping.
The 6-year-old, who’s now a big sister to twins Sir and Rumi Carter, was otherwise poised and content company at the 60th annual awards show. Wearing an all-white ensemble that consisted of a pleated, long coat and trousers with shimmery silver Mary-Janes, Blue was flanked by her parents, who wore all black.
Blue is a pro on the awards show circuit at this point, having attended and stolen the show at the 2017 Grammy Awards, too. At the time, she wore an adorable pink tuxedo, a nod to the late musical icon Prince, who had died the previous April.
Blue’s dad, JAY-Z, was up for eight awards, including Album of the Year for 4:44, and while he didn’t end up winning any of the statues, he was endorsed for president by rapper Kendrick Lamar.
