Blue Ivy Playfully Bidding $19,000 for Art Has Twitter Fainting [VIDEO]
Queen Bey, along with her mother-in-law, Gloria Carter, was being honored with the Humanitarian Award for their philanthropic endeavors with numerous global relief efforts including, Hand in Hand Hurricane Relief and CHIME FOR CHANGE, among many others.
In her acceptance speech, an emotional Ms. Knowles Carter said, "I feel really full, and just, so blessed and so very fortunate... It's a privilege and a responsibility." Beyonce also received a heartwarming pre-recorded video message from Michelle Obama who saluted her for being an inspiration to young women.
But the real star of the night was Blue Ivy.
Later in the night, there was an auction for some very pricey paintings. While sitting down during the auction, Ivy held onto her own paddle and started bidding on a painting. JAY-Z jokingly tried to wrestle it away from her when the bid rose to $17,000. But Ivy pulled her paddle back and bid again for $19,000.
Of course, Blue Ivy was only playing around but the Beyhive on Twitter was fainting at how the six-year-old princess was bidding for $19k art without a care in the world.
"We stan a tasteful legend who knows how to invest her money into the finer things. That $19,000 was a fifth of her allowance for the week and she needed a painting for her master suite. Well done Blue," wrote one fan.
Another person tweeted, "Blue Ivy bidding on $19,000 dollars worth of art. I’m fucking weak. Her and Jay-Z were fighting for the paddle. Blue Ivy said she got the money. LMFAOOO."
The evening’s theme was “From WACO to Wakanda” so attendees dressed in clothes inspired by box office juggernaut Black Panther. Beyoncé and her daughter wore matching gold dresses for the event.
