Blue Ivy follows her dad Jay Z by taking a sip out of a Grammy trophy.
Despite growing resentment by some artists such as The Weeknd, Lil Wayne, and Justin Bieber over the Recording Academy practices, to win a Grammy is still a huge accomplishment for any artist. Perhaps focusing on the next generation, Blue Ivy Carter became the second youngest artist to win a trophy at the event.
By winning a Grammy for “Brown Skin Girl,” Blue Ivy was able to win an award that has alluded legendary artists such as Tupac Shakur and Notorious BIG. The young star followed a tradition that has only been done by the iconic Drake and her own father Jay Z by turning her Grammy award into a drinking cup.
Blue opted for a more classy, child-friendly aesthetic, complete with a blue and white striped straw. In a quick post-and-delete, Beyoncé shared flicks of Blue Ivy posing with her new trophy, and as The Shade Room points out, the shot of Blue sipping from her Grammy perfectly aligns from one of Jay-Z’s past Grammy acceptance speeches in which he said, “Daddy got a gold sippy cup for you.”
In an amazing turn of events, Blue Ivy was able to earn that gold sippy cup all on her own.
