Blue Ivy Carter Got Into a Bidding War With Tyler Perry

Blue Ivy Carter can add art collector to her already extensive résumé. The six year-old daughter of Jay-Z and Beyoncé lives a life envied by most adults. Her parents famously attempted to trademark her name weeks after she was born. She was the youngest person to debut on the Billboard music charts when her newborn cries were featured in Jay-Z’s song “Glory.” Blue Ivy truly won America’s heart when she was caught shushing her parents to calm down at the Grammys. Over the weekend, Blue Ivy demonstrated her refined taste in art by participating in an art auction, bidding against the likes of entertainment mogul Tyler Perry.

Perry spoke about the experience on Jimmy Kimmel Live! He was in Los Angeles to attend the Wearable Art Gala Fundraiser; an event annually hosted by Beyoncé’s mother Tina Knowles Lawson and Richard Lawson. The proceeds benefited the WACO Theater Center. During the fundraiser, a portrait of Sidney Poitier was placed up for auction and Perry decided he wanted it. As the bidding started, Perry found himself bidding against someone on the other side of the room. When Perry glanced over, he was shocked to discover that the other bidder was first grader Blue Ivy. Once Blue Ivy placed a bid of $19,000, Jay-Z removed the auction paddle from her, and Perry purchased the piece for $20,000. On Kimmel, Perry jokingly said he was thinking to himself, “I’m gonna to teach you now little girl! You’re not gonna get everything you want!”

Beyonce Takes Her Daughter to an Awards Ceremony

The popular singer Beyonce appeared on Sunday night at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards together with her young daughter, Blue Ivy Carter. The singer’s appearance at the event occurred in conjunction with an act indirectly promoting Black Lives Matter, a controversial group that has recently voiced criticism of police nationwide for involvement in several disputed shootings. During the ceremony, she performed a medley of songs entitled “Lemonade” that ended dramatically with her backup dancers pretending to fall to the floor after a shooting. The performance leveled a not-so-subtle public attack on the actions of police.

Little Blue Ivy‘s appearance at the awards ceremony delighted the audience. The child, born on January 7, 2012 will turn five next year. Her mother revealed her anticipated birth at the MTV awards ceremony for the first time in 2011, happy news announced after the singer sustained a painful miscarriage early that year. Both Beyonce and her daughter wore designer gowns to the awards event, although they relied upon different fashion stylists. In the past, Beyonce has taken a number of publicity photos wearing the same clothing designs as her youngster.

Beyonce’s performance at the awards ceremony drew a harsh comment from former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani on Monday. Appearing on Fox and Friends, he vigorously defended the actions of the New York Police Department in protecting the public, including Black people. He criticized Black Lives Matter recently as “inherently racist” in focus.
