Not that Blue Ivy was nominated for an award, but her mere presence at the MTV Video Music Awards should be considered a present. Yes, I stole that from Kanye. Blue Ivy was in attendance Sunday with her parents, some big-time rapper and a singer named Jay Z and Beyoncé. I think this Beyoncé person is pretty famous, and so is this Jay Z guy. But none of that even matters because Blue Ivy reigned supreme.

Proudly rocking her baby-fro and satin dress, Blue Ivy sat on her father’s lap and danced to her mother’s singing of “Flawless.” And yes, Blue Ivy flawlessly pulled it off.



As Blue Ivy’s mother finished her exhausting but fabulous, 16-minute set and accepted her Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, Blue Ivy grabbed the mic and yelled, “I’m the Queen B.” Well, no, she actually didn’t, but she did in the cutest way let her mother know that she had her back.

“Yah, Mommy!” Blue Ivy said.

To all of the other famous progeny out there, even Vevo knows what’s up:


It’s safe to say that Blue Ivy is flawless, and maybe she gets it from her momma.
