When you’re the child of two of the biggest stars in the world, it only makes sense that your parents wouldn’t want to take any chances when it comes to your safety. Such is the case with Blue Ivy, who still gets carried by her parents when they move about in public, and who was the reason her grandmother, Tina Knowles, had to check paparazzi for trying to film and photograph her earlier this week. While Bey & Jay have chosen to live in the spotlight, they want Blue to have a normal upbringing, but they also want her to be safe. That’s exactly why the 3-year-old goes to her new preschool escorted by three bodyguards and two cars that ensure she gets in and out safely.
But all of this precaution has become something of a hassle and created a backup in traffic for other parents. According to an alleged source from the West Hollywood school who spoke to InTouch Weekly, they’re not happy about it.
“A security motorcade drops her off and picks her up from school. There are two cars and three bodyguards!
Beyoncé and Jay Z have made things a huge hassle. Other celebrity kids get dropped of by one driver, not an entire staff.”
The source went on to say that parents have called it “tacky and over-the-top” considering that quite a few celebrity children attend the elite school, but their moves don’t create such a scene.
According to the source, comedian Will Ferrell’s youngest son attends the school, but he “usually drops off and picks up his kid himself.”
But considering how big Beyoncé and Jay Z are, trying to take Blue to school each day on their own could bring about the paparazzi, which could bring even more confusion to the school. I’m sure these parents don’t want that.
At the end of the day, if this is a school full of celebrity kids, I’m not really sure why such precautions would upset people so much, but then again, folks always find a reason to take issue with these two. Either way though, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
I don’t know about you but if I walked into a room full of people and Mama Tina was in the spot, she would be the absolute last person I would try. She seems like a nice lady but also one you do not want to cross.
And while she kept it classy on Monday when she, Beyoncé and Blue Ivy were out to lunch in Santa Monica, she had to let them know that she didn’t appreciate them filming her grand baby.
Here’s what she said in this short and concise shaming session. The Hollywood Fix caught the exchange on video.
You know that’s not cool. It’s illegal. You can’t film a baby.
Ma’am I’m just out here taking pictures.
Ok well, can you not take a picture of a child
Well, I mean you’re famous…
How would you like for somebody to take a picture of your baby?
If I was a famous, huge multimillionaire…
No, you wouldn’t care! That’s a baby. That’s a baby. Have some class about you. Have a little class and some consideration.
Then she dropped the mic and walked away.
Well, there you have it ladies and gentlemen. Leave the babies alone or Mama Tina will have to come out and read your entire life.
It goes without saying that Jay-Z, Beyonce and Blue Ivy make up one of the cutest families in all of entertainment. Not only do you have the seemingly fairytale love story between HOVA and Queen Bey, but they have an absolutely precious little lady in the form of Blue Ivy.
Since we can’t get enough of the Carters and with a fresh 12 months of adorableness ahead of us, Madame Noire takes a look back at some of this family’s cutest moments.
Most of us, as little girls, had fleeting thoughts or even dreams of what it must be like to be famous. We think about the glitz and glam, the clothes, the luxury and even the flashing lights. But our fantasies stop short of considering the fact that there may come a time when we can’t turn those lights off.
There’s a downside to everything and we saw that this weekend with the Knowles family when they tried to enjoy a day at Griffith Park in Los Angeles with their children. While Beyoncé is known for flashing a smile to the paparazzi in the midst of some pretty unpleasant situations, Solange doesn’t seem to be one to hide her true feelings. In fact, they generally seem to make an appearance on her face.
And that’s what happened this weekend while the paps were lurking.
Check out the images and Solange’s response to the intrusion below.
This is why I live in #nola. Family park days much as I want w out the mom in leopard print stretch pants photo'n every pop lock & drop.

Beyonce may or may not have just announced her second pregnancy to the world.
The songstress has social media in a frenzy after posting a suspicious picture of herself on Instagram. The photo features Bey buried under a ton of sand with an extra bump on her stomach. Of course, the Beyhive is convinced she’s pregnant. However, we’re not sure. Two weeks ago, she posted photos of her and Jay drinking champagne.
Nonetheless, we’re placing Queen Bey on baby bump watch. We think Blue Ivy would make a great big sister.
The internet may have told you that yesterday little Blue Ivy Carter turned 3. Of course there were hyperbolic comments made about her being heir to the throne, slideshows featuring Blue’s most adorable public moments, even some really entertaining illustrations, like this one:
But one of the greatest birthday tributes came Blue Blue’s auntie Solange.
But I’ll save the best for last. Before that, Beyoncé posted a picture of Blue Ivy’s birthday set up, complete with an ice sculpture. Check it out.
See what Solange had to say about her niece below.
It’s almost too much to handle right?
This image of Beyoncé, Blue Ivy and Jay Z seems sweet and wholesome enough: The singer and her family are having a memorable moment, petting a baby tiger while visiting FantaSea in Phuket, Thailand (even though Jay doesn’t seem too sure about the big cat…). But this photo is not bringing a smile to the face of Dr. Jan Schmidt-Burbach and the people of the World Animal Protection organization.
Dr. Schmidt-Burbach said in a statement on the WAP website:
“A tiger is not a plaything. Their health and well-being should not be sacrificed for a photo opportunity. When you look behind the scenes, holiday snaps like these support an industry that relies on animal cruelty.
Many tourists unwittingly contribute to the suffering of wild animals like these. They’re simply not aware that their ‘once in a lifetime’ photo means a lifetime of misery for that animal.”
Dr. Schmidt-Burbach added this, in a statement, which was obtained by Billboard:
“I urge anyone who is thinking about posing with a wild animal to watch World Animal Protection’s video to learn the facts before they book their next vacation. Once people know the truth, they can take action to end this cruelty by choosing to see wild animals in the wild where they belong.”
“The wee-baby elephant that Beyonce has so happily perched herself upon, was likely taken from his mother and forced to endure a six-month ‘breaking’ period during which time he was locked in a small enclosure and continuously beaten by his mahouts (trainers). It is not unlikely that this poor elephant will spend everyday[sic] after this one carrying other tourists, exposed to the extreme heat and weather of Phuket, knowing little but a life of pain and misery.”
But honestly, Beyoncé and Jay Z probably aren’t worried about such criticism, because today is Blue Ivy’s third birthday, and they’re focused on making it a special one:

Blue Ivy continues to steal our hearts. Yesterday, the heir to the Carter throne was spotted at JFK airport’s security checkpoint with her superstar parents, Yoncé and Hov, before jetting off to Dubai for their Holiday vacation.
Blue was seen wearing a fly print coat, Ugg boots and playing tag with her Dad. In the video below, Blue is seen running away from Jay Z as he eagerly runs down the airplane ramp to catch her. Mama Bey ran behind the two– in 5-inch heels no less — making it an adorable family affair.
Catch the Carters cute family moment below, along with pictures of them shopping in Dubai.

She’s months shy of turning three, and we still can’t get enough of Blue Ivy! The adorable tot was spotted in New York City with her famous mom, Beyoncé, on Tuesday. She rocked an adorable curly fro, a leather biker jacket and the cutest little tu-tu skirt.
The mommy-daughter duo were photographed together just hours before Bey attended the TopShop Topman Dinner Celebration to acknowledge the opening of TopShop’s New York City flagship store. Tuesday was also a pretty exciting day for Blue’s “auntie” Kelly Rowland, who gave birth to baby boy Titan Jewell Witherspoon.
We cannot wait for photos of Blue interacting with her new cousin; however, that probably won’t be for a while. But in the meantime, enjoy these photos of Blue in her all black ensemble.

I wonder if the Carters watch “Black-ish”? If you watched this week’s Halloween episode, you saw the Dre and his family went as the Jackson 5. Earlier today, we reported that Beyoncé dressed as Janet Jackson from her Rhythm Nation days. But Blue got the better costume. She was a young Michael Jackson, complete with the shiny glove, boots and a curl. And it’s just too adorable. Check out a couple of pictures of her stepping out with her parents last night.
Apparently, Jay Z didn’t want to join in on all the family theme. Later that evening, he was seen wearing a mask on the back of his head but it wasn’t Jackson family related. Bey and Blue got the best ones. Though it would have been pretty hilarious to see him attempt the Jermaine Jackson spray painted hair.
As smart at that little Blue Ivy is, I wouldn’t be surprised if she specially asked to be Michael Jackson. Either way she’s adorable. And I peep the little twist hanging out, just like Michael used to have that single curl hanging down in his face. Blue isn’t the only celebrity baby whose debuted her Halloween costume already, this morning Kim Kardashian shared a few pics of North West. Check them out on the next page.
