It looks like Blue Ivy Carter might share the same penchant for high-end art as her parents. At the Second Annual Wearable Art Gala in Los Angeles Saturday night, the pint-sized progeny of JAY-Z and Beyoncé was caught on video raising her paddle, thus placing a $17,000 bid on a painting by visual artist Tiffanie Anderson.
Hova, himself, did his best to sweetly pull the paddle from his daughter’s grip, but when the camera came back to the family it was still held securely in her hands. “Oh y’all made me come from behind the podium, because Blue was out there bidding,” the auctioneer says. “You gonna do 19?”
You bet she did. JAY-Z looks reluctant about the piece, though it is a pretty striking portrait of a young Sidney Poitier—aptly titled “Young Sidney”—and we’re guessing it would look pretty legit alongside his other pieces. Watch the clip below, and take a closer look at the actual painting.
In June, JAY-Z and Beyoncé will kick off their On the Run 2 co-headlining tour. As for Blue Ivy, she recently starred in an animated video of her own.
