Controversy at the Grammys as Beyoncé’s 12-year-old daughter rocks an off-the-shoulder dress – too grown up or just fabulous? Social media explodes with opinions!

Beyoncé’s daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, sparked strong reactions from social media users with her recent dress. Many felt that her attire was not “appropriate” for her age.

The 12-year-old daughter of iconic powerhouse artist Beyoncé Knowles-Carter and rap icon Jay-Z Carter stole the show at this year’s Grammy Awards. Blue Ivy Carter looked radiant in an elegant off-the-shoulder gown, which showed off her collar bones.

She paired her chic ensemble with light makeup, silver earrings, a ring, and a dainty clutch bag. Though the young star on the rise looked beautiful in the pictures of her with her mogul parents and other celebrities, some people did not agree with what she wore.

Of Blue Ivy’s dress, one social media user asserted, “Not age appropriate at all!” Similarly, another expressed, “That dress is not for a 12 year old child.” Someone else questioned, “Why is Blue’s cleavage showing?”

Another Instagrammer who agreed with the inappropriateness of the dress said, “She’s 12 looking 18.” However, other people complimented Blue Ivy’s appearance, citing that she looked great.

In this regard, one fan praised, “She is adorable and looks so poised 🙌.” Another called her “so gorgeous.” Speaking of the gown, an Instagrammer gushed, “The dress is cute!!! I prefer this rather than baggy jeans and XL t-shirts!”

This recent appearance at the Grammys is not Blue Ivy’s first association with the prestigious event. A few years ago, the young performer made history when she became the second-youngest individual to win a Grammy for her mom’s music video “Brown Skin Girl,” as Blue Ivy was given writing credit for the track.

Although Blue Ivy has already begun establishing herself as a force to be reckoned with in the entertainment industry, her loving parents haven’t pushed her into pursuing careers like their own.

In a past interview, doting dad Jay-Z clarified that what is important to him and Beyoncé when raising their children is ensuring they “provide a loving environment” and “be very attentive to who they want to be.” Jay-Z said, “It’s easy for us, as human beings, to want our children to do certain things, but we have no idea. We’re just guides.”

The business mogul, who wants the best for his beloved children, was honored with the Dr. Dre Global Impact Award at the Grammy Awards. While holding his award and giving his acceptance speech, with his daughter standing next to him, the “Otis” artist joked, “I used to say this is a sippy cup for Blue, but Blue’s grown up now; she doesn’t take sippy cups, and she has her own Grammys.”

Toward the end of his speech, Jay-Z Carter and Blue Ivy Carter shared a sweet moment when he took her hand and spoke about the importance of people continuing to show up for themselves.

As previously reported on November 30, 2023:

As Beyonce marks another milestone in her career with the release of “Renaissance: A Film by Beyonce,” her family has shown her full support. In the London premiere of the concert movie, her daughter Blue Ivy made sure to walk the red carpet with her famous mother.

For the occasion, Beyonce’s eldest daughter, Blue Ivy, donned a black, off-shoulder dress and dark sunglasses. While the young lady looked mature and sophisticated in her all-black ensemble, fans didn’t think it was appropriate.

“That kid is too young for that dress at 11 years old hanging off her shoulder,” one user commented. “Don’t understand why they want her to look like she is so much older,” another echoed.

While others slammed Blue Ivy and Beyonce’s seemingly inappropriate outfits, others felt people were too critical of the mother-and-daughter duo. Their fans showered them with support and love through their comments.

“Love this and Bey’s silver look,” one fan shared. “Love both of them so much beautiful,” another fan praised. Regardless of what others had to say, their loyal fans made sure to silence haters with their supportive comments.

Blue Ivy played a part in her mom’s “Renaissance” tour and concert movie. She appeared as one of the dancers in her mom’s performances of “Black Parade” and “My Power.”

Initially, Blue Ivy’s dance performances were supposed to be a one-time thing. However, she insisted on wanting to join her mom’s tour to perform. It took a lot of negotiating until Beyonce finally caved in.

Blue Ivy eventually contributed more than just her dancing skills. In the “Renaissance” film, she could be seen sharing her opinions on her mom’s song choices, stage design, and more. She was candid with her thoughts, as, after all, to her, Beyonce was simply mom.

The young woman has made waves in the industry at her tender age. Before joining her mom on tour, she was already a Grammy Award winner. She won Best Music Video for “Brown Skin Girl,” an achievement as few people can say they won a prestigious award at nine.
