Is it wrong to stan for a child president? Because after last night’s Grammy Awards, little Blue Ivy Carter gave us “that moment” and I don’t know about you, but I got the vapors and gasped “she’s running”. If you missed it, that moment was when Blue Ivy did the lord’s work and told her parents Beyoncé and Jay-Z they was doing too much. #BlueIvy2020.
Here’s the GIF that has given so much life, zombies are crawling out of the Hollywood Forever cemetery. Oh, shit, here comes Cecil B. Demille, in the ragged flesh, trying to get Blue Ivy in his next big pick-cha!

With the deft zen of a yogi master many decades older than her 6 year old corporeal vessel belies, Blue Ivy smooth told her Mutter und Vater (I’m 100% sure BIC speaks fluent German) to take it down several notches. “Mutter, now, you are already blocking people’s view with that ridiculous hat. Can you please let this poor white lady talk? As for you Vater, I understand that you are nominated for MY album, but you are really just here as a courtesy to Mutter and I and, as such, kindly restrain yourself from making a spectacle of yourself in front of all these nice people. This is not your day nor might it ever be again. Consider yourself lucky to be here and can you please grab me one of those gummy worms I put in your pocket for safe keeping.”
And about that big hat, People has the scoop from Beyoncé’s makeup artist Sir John. Beyoncé wore two similar looks over the weekend. Turns out her Grammy look is not a costume test for a shot-for-shot remake of Fallon’s funeral on Dynasty, but rather and homage to the Black Panther Party. And no, not the Black Panther Movie viewing party. The actual Black Panther Party. According to People:
Sir John reveals that Beyoncé’s look tonight is in continued support of the Black Panther Party. “It started with Super Bowl last January, and here we are a year later,” he explains. In fact, Bey’s been making a sartorial statement all weekend, he reveals.
Here’s Beyoncé’s Grammy night look. Check out the little panther clutch she’s got that also kind of looks like a 38 special. And, could it be that Beyoncé also got an email from Kanye about wearing smaller sunglasses?
And Here’s the look from the previous night.
Sir John would have you note the turtleneck on the dress, the structural bodice and the black beret; all nods to the Blank Panther looks I grew up with in Berkeley in the 70’s, but fashion. Who knew activism was so damn expensive!
