Like father, like daughter.
Blue Ivy Carter celebrated her big Grammy win on Sunday with a jeweled crown on her head and a straw to sip out of her gold statuette, a page taken right out of her dad Jay-Z’s book.
The pictures of Blue and Jay-Z are almost identical, paying tribute to 2013 photos of the rapper drinking cognac out of his awards. The 51-year-old Brooklyn native has amassed 23 other Grammys over the years.
Now, making history, Blue is the second-youngest winner to pick up a Grammy at just 9 years old for Best Music Video for “Brown Skin Girl,” and she may be coming for her mom Beyoncé’s record.
In a video montage shared with her nearly 170 million followers, Beyoncé shared images of all of her Grammy wins over the years — breaking the record for the most-awarded female artist in all 63 years of the award show. At the end of the clip, we catch a glimpse of the playful side to her eldest child.
The singer, 39, first shared a snap of Blue Ivy from the music video before sharing photos of her daughter posing with her first Grammy. In true, Queen B fashion, her crown shows she’s the heir to the new throne.
While Blue wasn’t at the Grammys to give a speech of her own, mama made sure to congratulate her daughter while accepting her win for the best R&B Performance for “Black Parade.”
“Thank you guys so much . . . It has been such a difficult time so I wanted to uplift, encourage, and celebrate all of the beautiful Black queens and kings that continue to inspire me and inspire the whole world,” she gushed to the crowd. “Congratulations, Blue. She won a Grammy tonight. I’m so proud of you, and I’m so honored to be your mommy.”
Beyoncé has shared how important “Brown Skin Girl” is to her and the representation of women of color. In a statement to “Good Morning America,” she shared, “It was so important to me in ‘Brown Skin Girl’ that we represented all different shades of brown. We wanted every character to be shot in a regal light . . . It was important that we are all in this together, and we’re all celebrating each other.”
