Tina Knowles

Blue Ivy Carter told off her grandmother Tina Lawson for taking video inside an opulent theater in Paris, France. Beyonce's mom took the singer's six-year-old daughter to a theater in Paris on Wednesday night, and secretly took a video to show her Instagram followers what the inside of the theater looked like, while waiting for the seats to fill up.

"I'm in Paris, France and I'm at the most beautiful theater I've ever seen in my life about to look at the ballet. It's a walk-in ballet, it's so cool," Tina said to the camera, before panning around the theater which, according to WENN.com, appears to be the opulent Palais Garnier.

But signs posted at the theater entrance forbids tourists from taking photos and video -- and Blue Ivy can read better than most tourists.

In the background, the gradeschooler can be heard reminding her grandma that taking video was against the venue's rules.

"You're not supposed to take videos grandma," Blue said sweetly. "You're not supposed to."

But Tina is from that era when children are supposed to be seen and not heard, so she ignored her granddaughter's warning, and continued to pan around the auditorium, saying, "Such a gorgeous theater. The architecture is beautiful. Really pretty."

Blue Ivy, whose father is elder rapper Jay Z, is a well-known Internet sensation for her sassy backtalk to her parents. In one viral video, BIC seemingly gestured to her parents to be quiet when they were clapping wildly at the Grammys in January.

Jay Z recently told David Letterman that he liked Blue Ivy's outspoken nature -- probably because she reminded him of his mother.

The 47-year-old rapper recalled his daughter scolding him for the condescending way he spoke down to her.

"We're driving and then I just hear a little voice [say], 'Dad...' "I turn around and she said, 'I didn't like when you told me to get in the car the way you told me' -- she's SIX! -- 'It hurt my feelings.'"

He was so touched by his daughter's honesty, he replied, "That's the most beautiful thing you've ever said to me."

    Blue Ivy Carter told off her grandmother
    for her sassy backtalk to her parents.

    Sandy, BYE! Bey, is country. There will be no sassy back talk.

  • Gloria

    This sorta reminds me of the time I called my mom out in a lie when I was a little girl. She was doing my hair and on the phone with my aunt, bragging and going into detail about this big dinner she cooked and I screamed just enough so my aunt could here. "Thats a story, mom! You didn't cook any of that!"

    I got whacked so hard in the head with a comb. Sometimes kids have such a moral compass that they can't help but express themselves.

    I learned in that moment that a child should stay in a child's place.
    I'm glad Tina didn't discipline Blu Ivy like my mom did me lol.

  • Gloria

    I swear! lol

  • WutizstillHERE!

    One I love that she isn't that too hip to be called grandma type. Two lil Blue sounded cute like she was trying to keep grandma from getting in trouble..You not supposed to grandma.. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/bb4264f7d4d7227830d50436ebc02fe52f854ab6633bc6dbb91c04c30c8efcd0.gif

  • NeverSurprised

    It’s a damn shame when a six-year-old has better manners in public than a 96-year-old, which is the age that this crypt keeper is looking these days, hence the heavy filtering.

  • what?why

    Blue has more brains than the Grandma but what else would one expect from narcissist Tina.

  • what?why

    Wow, respect that we all have voices and should use ours.

  • NeverSurprised

    I wonder who in the household is responsible for having taught Blue such excellent manners? Probably the nanny.

  • what?why


  • SpillyNillie


    Mama Tina looks like a Drag Queen. I think she needs to soften her makeup application. All the contouring, hard edges, and red lipstick makes her look rigid.

  • Faithz

    Leaning over Laughing so hard, Thanks for the laugh.

  • Faithz

    She sure is!

  • Wreckognize Game

    Blue was singing in her little voice. You're not supposed to.. Too cute

  • Dowoop

    Because she clearly has more manners than her parents & grandparents.

  • Dowoop

    Lol...Your parents are Caribbean aren't they?

  • Blue

    Baby girl called her out. I would have deleted that video and not posted it. Just enjoy the d*mn theater.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Blue is adorable. Love that theatre.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Damn why people hate on Ms. Tina like that? She seems cool af?

  • Kanyade

    aw she's precious. Mama Tina always cuttin' up on the 'gram.

  • FukkFolks2018

    A post on the Stabber. Well kinda...

    So. 13 year old is finally around to examining her battle rap phase. She listens to Ether again last night...she asks me ma...Jay-Z was 36 in 2000-2001? Im like why are you asking me this? The line of "you 36 in a karate class?" That would make him...*counts on her lil teen fangers and in her lil teen mind* 54 or 55? Really? Im all like well err I...hmmm...and bf in the background ...hell I aint know he was even listening to us yells...YEP! He old as shit baby girl!

    Promise I just sent this to my text homies at around 7 pm just last night.


  • i troll it like i see it

    I still don't know what Tina Lawson did to get so much hate on this site. People go especially hard with the ageism comments, as if they are going to be young forever. I'm still trying to figure out how a woman in her 60s is supposed to look, according to their high standards.


    Family, blue is always with her parents or grandparents. ?????


    Do you some of y’all ever have something nice to say. Just 6 years ago y’all were calling blue ivy ugly and all kinds of names, now y’all saying she’s so this and that! SMH ?????

  • Cannelle

    Smart kid.

  • Intellectual by Nature!

    Girl, I have a very similar story. My mom slapped me so hard for calling my aunt a liar (she was, though ????) that she broke my glasses.

  • Cannelle


  • NeverSurprised

    Absolutely. From the time he was five I encouraged my son to be an independent thinker and voice his reasoned opinions. Never laid a hand on him for doing so.

    He graduated from college last year and is a stellar human being in every way.

  • pecancandy

    Too cute but you can tell Mamma Tina old school, lil girl I will do as I have please.

  • mona q

    I love Blue Ivy....such a classy little lady.

  • KcoolMuziq

    This is how JAY-Z prefers his name to be addressed.

  • stav

    Tina looks like a Disney witch, and that weave should've blended better, being as though she was once a beautician.

  • Guess Who

    I couldn't concentrate on anything else because of those disrespectful, wayward brows. Tina, are you seriously just rubbing a soft black instead of a dark brown pencil on them and giving zero fux bout the shape?

  • Vonn

    May have been Tina...some folks subscribe to "do as I say, not as I do."

  • FukkFolks2018

    I love that lady. I would prolly have a damn BLAST with Ms. Tina. She is funny. She drinks. Might eem smoke a lil something. She is smart. I want to adopt her.


    That was too cute and her lil voice.

  • NeverSurprised

    "wayward brows". I inadvertently snorted when I read that. ??

  • FukkFolks2018

    Some of these fukkas NEVER say anything nice. I imagine their life to be filled with gloom, sadness, and fukkin REGRET. Daily! I feel geninuely sad for some of them. They are miserable ass peepa.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Yes, its pathetic! I bet half of em mama's on Facebook looking a hot ass mess??

  • i troll it like i see it

    I would bet half of THEM are looking a mess, half Tina's age. They act like she aged like Jasmine Guy or something.

  • FukkFolks2018

    This some mess my girls would do. Nana...you gonna get us throw'd outta here...please stop now.

  • i troll it like i see it

    I like her too, but I knew as soon as I saw her face in a write up, people were going to start laying into her appearance. How is a woman in her 60s supposed to look?!

  • RoniV

    Tina looks like a portrait, and Blue's little voice is too cute:)

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    ROFL!!!!! that's hilarious!

    anyway, i find no fault w/Tina. she was a successful business woman, AND an attentive, nurturing mom who allowed her daughters to follow their dreams. we know Solo is a lil 'different' but it's not unusual to have at least one child that's a little different (and if i'm being honest, amongst my siblings, EYE may be that one, LOL!)

  • Rayne

    Ion care what nobody says I love Ms. Tina. She seems so cool.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!


  • Kayke

    Lol cute! My son is the po-po too.

  • RaginB

    Aww Blue Ivy remind me of my niece ??



  • NuBeauty

    Blue have a very cute soft voice. You can tell by the way she said "You're not supposed too" that she will have a nice singing voice. Awwww, I just adore Blue Blue.

  • Quitedeliteful

    WOW!! Folks be going IN on Tina!!! (I have to admit the comments did make me snicker). The lady can't live nor can she win with this bunch. I don't care to follow her in IG but she seems like she's living her best life and she's in Paris having fun and spending her man's money! Sounds like she's winning to me...

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Lol nah but I know Caribbean people are like that too! They do not play ?

  • Lovely

    You are such an evil spirited person. Everything that you put on this blog is always negative. So disturbing.

  • FukkFolks2018

    My dad had said when my oldest one was about 8 and he picked her up from school one day...they went to Wally. she was like granddaddy why is your handicap tag in my mom's car? its supposed to stay in your car. and you can walk now for a long time (had knee surg.) so maybe you dont need it anymore. see? that lady is in a wheelchair so she really does need it (pointed to a lady). Said she shamed him so damn bad he was like OKAY OKAY and moved to a non handicapped space.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Bloop. And folks upvoted that hateful mess. that is what gets me.

    She’s an attractive woman who needs to tone down all that makeup. She looks clownish in the above picture.

    It's really sad. It basically gives perfect strangers a look into how miserable he or she is in daily life. Smh.

    This was too cute ?.

  • freelancepimp .

    That was cute. It was beautiful. I don't blame her for sharing.

  • NeverSurprised

    Thanks for following me so closely, hun. Have a good day.?

  • NeverSurprised

    And yet you have time in YOUR empty life to assiduously hang onto my every word. Thanks for your interest, dear heart.

  • Lady_Elle

    BIC is of the age where they are told to follow rules.
    She can read and it is CLEAR that you are asked NOT to do something.
    This is confusing to a child when the adult is breaking the rules... what message are you sending to the child?

  • Ang

    Saying she "told off" her grandma is really reaching. She sounds like a typical 6 year who reacts to the adults not following the rules. That's what kids do. She didn't speak in a disrespectful tone. I'm over people making everything Blue does bigger than it is just because her parents are stars.

  • WutizstillHERE!
  • Ang

    Me too. It's annoying that people don't know how to enjoy things IRL without SM. Just soak in the beauty and enjoy yourself, especially when you're with a little kid.

  • Connie

    I would love to hear what had my president cheesing so hard

  • TheThrowbackBeauty

    This cracks me up??? super cute both of them!!

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    She might be the next Beyonce'! Or maybe be a triple threat. Her daddy can rap, her momma can sing & dance, she might be able to do all three on stage later in life. It'll be interesting to see where her life leads her.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Awww... she sounded so cute!

  • FukkFolks2018


  • SweetTEE

    Blu seems like shes being raised right. She doesn't act like those other kids.. Nori would've been posing or mean mugging.

Evil can not be hidden anymore ... Folks just choose to ignore the obvious ... Folks rather believe a lie these days chile... Not I ... Dealt with folks like her before ..

  • Guest©

    Another site said Blue was sassy to her grandma. Lies.... Blue being an innocent child follows instructions so she was simply reminding Grandma that she's not suppose to take pics. I can tell Blue is a force to be reckoned with already.

    Beyonce is a good looking older woman, but both her parents look like devils or devil worshippers. Blue has the sweetest little voice, but this self obsessed ogre Tina Knowles-Lawson acts like she couldn’t hear her.
