Blue Ivy Fought For Her Spot in Beyonce’s Renaissance Tour
Blue's performance was only supposed to be a one-off.
Blue Ivy has become a fan-favorite part of her mother Beyoncé’s Renaissance tour, taking the stage for “My Power” and “Black Parade” night after night, with her confidence evolving over the course of the tour. In Bey’s new Renaissance: A Film By Beyoncé concert documentary, it became evident that the 11-year-old fought for her place onstage.
According to the New York Times, Blue’s performance was only supposed to be a one-off. “She told me she was ready to perform, and I told her no,” Bey says in the film, noting that the child was devastated after reading comments criticizing her initial performance. However, the “Break My Soul” superstar said she was proud that her daughter, instead of quitting, chose to train harder for future dances.
When Blue first started joining her mother onstage, Bey also shared how proud she was of her eldest girl. “My beautiful first born 🙏🏾 I’m so proud and thankful to be your mama. You bring us so much joy, my sweet angel,” she wrote in a May 29 post.
Blue’s grandmother, Tina Knowles-Lawson, told People of Blue back in July, “She’s having the time of her life, and I couldn’t be more proud of her because she really worked hard.” She added, “She is 11 years old, and she had one week to prepare, and she’s just getting better and better. So I’m the proud grandma, always.”
