Blue Ivy Shushed Beyoncé and Jay-Z at the Grammys and Became Instantly Iconic

In the world of music royalty, we’ve always said that Jay-Z and Beyoncé are the king and queen. But if we’re being totally honest, that might not be correct. They might be more like the prince and princess to daughter Blue Ivy’s reigning queendom. She’s the only person in the world (besides Sir and Rumi, someday) who can tell Jay-Z and Beyoncé what to do or what not to do, and that means she’s practically all-powerful.

While she doesn’t make a ton of public appearances, she’s always beyond adorable and full of personality when she does show up at events. And the Grammys this year was no exception.

The whole Carter-Knowles family (minus the twins) graced the front row of the Grammy Awards, and they looked incredible. Beyoncé looked like pure royalty in her swoopy hat and Jay-Z classed it up in an all-black suit.

The best thing about little kids is that no matter how famous their parents are, they can only pretend to be having fun so much before their true feelings make their way onto their faces.

It’s not like the Grammys wasn’t full of fun moments, but Blue Ivy was noticeably bored. Girl just wasn’t having it. And as you can see, there are the Getty photos to prove it.

Camila Cabello was in the middle of an impassioned speech about DREAMers and her own experiences as an immigrant to the U.S., and Blue Ivy was like, “Beyoncé, Jay-Z, mommy, daddy, no clapping. Shh. Shhhhhhh.” Obviously, the Internet took notice pretty immediately…

…which would be understandable, if her parents weren’t Beyoncé and Jay-Z. But they are. Her parents are Beyoncé and Jay-Z. In case that wasn’t clear.  

Maybe Blue Ivy was just trying to be respectful to Cabello. She was in the middle of talking when everyone burst into applause, after all. Blue wanted her to finish!

Whatever the reason for the shushy-shush, Blue Ivy’s move is now iconic, and I will never stop doing it. Except maybe if I ever meet Beyoncé and Jay-Z. Then I wouldn’t dare.

She is officially an idol and scarily maybe even more powerful than her parents. Who are Beyoncé and Jay-Z, by the way!!!!!!

In conclusion, who run the world? Girls. Well, one girl in particular: Blue Ivy Carter.
