Suprise, surprise, surprise. Even though it was looking like she wouldn't, Beyoncé surprised us all and showed up to music's biggest night with her man and her baby gem, and the world is losing it. These photos of Beyoncé and Blue Ivy at the Grammys tell me two things. One, it's cool to be at the Grammys. Two, my mom and I are THROUGH. IF WE CAN'T BE ON THIS LEVEL, TAKE A HIKE, DEB.
Let's be real: It's probably hard to have Beyoncé as a mom. There's a lot of pressure that comes with being the spawn of a literal goddess. But clearly, Blue Ivy takes it all in stride. Last year, she stole the show when she popped into a hilarious rendition of Carpool Karaoke. This year, she's stealing it again, rocking all white while her royal parents sport all black. Even though Beyoncé's hat thinks tonight is about itself, the Grammys are actually (and have always been) about Blue and Bey.
Fans are seriously freaking out over the beautiful photos of little B hanging out with her 'rents at the Grammys for a few reasons. Mainly, she just looks so freaking cool. She's calm. She's poised. She's famous AF.
Just take a look at this gorgeous family:
I SAID LOOK AT THEM.
DO YOU SEE THEM?
Of course, Blue is there to support her parents for their collaboration on the track "Family Feud" on JAY's 4:44 album. In fact, JAY had the most nominations this year, coming in with eight nods for his latest studio album. He was nominated for Album of the Year, Best Rap Album, Best Rap Song, Best Rap Performance, Best Music Video, Song of the Year, Record of the Year, and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration.
"Family Feud" was a particularly big song on the album, generating a TON of talk, as JAY reference his past infidelity in the song. The lyrics to the song include:
Yeah, I'll f*ck up a good thing if you let me
Let me alone, Becky
A man that don't take care his family can't be rich
I'll watch Godfather, I miss that whole sh*t
My consciousness was Michael's common sense
I missed the karma, that came as a consequence
N***** bustin' off through the curtains 'cause she hurtin'
Can't losin' the babies 'cause their future's uncertain
Nobody wins when the family feuds
We get it, JAY. We seriously get it. I'm still mad at you for cheating on Queen B, and I will honestly never get over it, but good for you for speaking your truth on 4:44, and even better for Beyoncé for taking the talking stick first with Lemonade.
Last year, Beyoncé lost Album of the Year to Adele, but we all know Lemonade is always the winner in our hearts. Even Adele felt sh*tty about it. During her acceptance speech, she just praised Beyoncé, saying,
I can't possibly accept this award and I'm very humbled and I'm very grateful and gracious, but my artist of my life is Beyoncé and this album for me, the Lemonade album, is just so monumental, Beyoncé, so monumental... and so well thought out and so beautiful and soulbearing and we all got to see another side to you that you don't always let us see and we appreciate that and all us artists here adore you... you are our light and the way you make me and my friends feel, the way you make my black friends feel is empowering, and you make them stand up for themselves and I love you, I always have and I always will.
This year, Kendrick Lamar took home Best Rap Album over JAY, but even Kendrick was sure to praise his main man on his way out. Lamar gave his thank you speech and casually said, "JAY for president."
I don't know, Kendrick. What about Blue for president? 2040? Eh?
