Blue Ivy Carter celebrated her Grammy win by turning award into a sippy cup
Blue Ivy Carter, the first-born child of Beyoncé and Jay-Z added to her list of accolades Sunday by winning her first Grammy Award for Best Music Video for “Brown Skin Girl“.
The nine-year-old is credited as a featured artist, making her the second-youngest person to win a Grammy.
Blue Ivy appropriately toasted to her win by drinking out of her gold-plated Grammy trophy with a blue-and-white-striped straw and wearing a matching gold crown.
Beyoncé featured the iconic shot of her daughter at the end of a video montage that highlighted her time at the Grammys, where Queen Bey became the most-winning female artist, and the most-winning singer, male or female, in the 63-year history of the Grammy Awards with a new total of 28 trophies.
While accepting the best R&B performance Grammy for “Black Parade,” Beyoncé called her three children her “rock.” In addition to Blue Ivy, Beyoncé and Jay-Z share 3-year-old twins Rumi and Sir.
“I know my daughter is watching,” Beyoncé, 39, said during her acceptance speech. “Blue, congratulations – she won a Grammy tonight. I’m so proud of you. I’m so honoured to be your mommy, all of your mommies. Ya’ll are my babies.”
Don’t forget about Dad. Jay-Z, 51, has won a total of 23 Grammy Awards. And memorably in 2013, Jay-Z took a celebratory shot of his own D’usse Cognac from his Grammy award after taking home three trophies that night.
A year later, Jay-Z promised his daughter some new drinkware while accepting the best rap/sung collaboration performance Grammy for “Holy Grail.”
“I want to tell Blue, ‘Daddy got a gold sippy cup for you,’” the rapper said.
It turns out Blue Ivy doesn’t need her dad’s trophy, because she has her own hardware now. The Carters collectively share 52 Grammy Awards.
