Blue da boss?! Beyonce's daughter, six, proves she rules the roost as she tells both mom and Jay Z to stop clapping in hilarious viral moment from the front row at the Grammy Awards

  • Blue Ivy was captured motioning to her parents to calm down as they clapped enthusiastically, in a moment that instantly went viral
  • Beyonce wore $6.8m of Lorraine Schwartz jewelry, but skipped the red carpet
  • The Drunk In Love hitmaker's ensemble was inspired by the Black Panthers in a look sported two years after she paid homage to the socialist organisation at the Superbowl in February 2016
  • Mother and daughter were at the Grammys to support Jay Z, who was nominated for eight awards
  • The music icon did not win in any of his categories - missing out in the Best Rap Album category to Kendrick Lamar and Song Of The Year and Album Of The Year to Bruno Mars 

  • Jay Z and Beyonce might seem like the coolest parents around, but they still manage to embarrass Blue Ivy.
    The precocious six-year-old took charge at the Grammys on Sunday night and ordered her famous mom and dad to chill out.
    With a steely gaze, and a nonchalant 'calm down' hand gesture, she immediately brought them to heel as they clapped enthusiastically at her side.

    Blue and her mom were at the Madison Square Garden show in New York to cheer on Jay Z, who was nominated for eight awards for his album 4:44.
    Having skipped the red carpet, music's first family sat front row, with Blue sandwiched between her famous parents. Wearing white - complete with mini heels - the kindergarten student's outfit stood out against the black worn by both her parents.

    While Beyonce was being bossed about by her daughter, the music icon was looking as cool as could be as she sat cross-legged in her velvet custom Nicolas Jebra gown, Alain Mikli sunglasses firmly on.
    On her head was perched a black hat, rather obscuring the view for those sitting behind her.
    The singer finished her outfit with an incredible $6.8million of Lorraine Schwartz jewelry, with 70 carat diamond and titanium geometric earrings hanging from her ears with 35 carat center stones. On her fingers were three platinum set diamond rings. 
    Her look was completed with a slanted hat and killer heels by Jimmy Choo and a mini clutch bag by Judith Leiber and her make-up artist revealed that her look was inspired by the Black Panthers - two years after she paid homage to the socialist organisation - founded in October 1966 - at the Superbowl in February 2016.

    Sunday night's outing came as Jay Z opened up about his marriage, seemingly admitting to infidelity.
    Speaking during an appearance on The Van Jones Show, he said: 'You can love someone but if you haven’t experienced love, and you don’t understand it and you don’t have the tools to move forward, then you’re going to have complications and you can either address it or you can pretend until until it blows up at some point.
    'For us, we chose to fight for our love. For our family. To give our kids a different outcome. 
    'To break that cycle for black men and women… We were never a celebrity couple, we were a couple that happened to be celebrities. We are real people. It’s my soul mate, it’s the person I love.'

    Jay Z is SHUT OUT of Grammy Awards despite eight nominations as golden boy Bruno Mars sweeps top three categories
  • Bruno Mars won all six of the Grammy awards he was nominated for including record of the year in a golden night in New York.
    But Jay-Z who entered the show leading the way with eight nominations walked away empty-handed, being overshadowed by his younger contemporary Kendrick Lamar who won five.
    The show was said to be the most diverse in the Grammy’s 60-year history, but only one woman took home an award on her sole merit during the televised show, with Alessia Cara winning best new artist.

    The ceremony saw attention on the women’s movement continued with powerful words and white roses.
    Musicians wore the flower in a showing of solidarity with the anti-sexual harassment movement which has been the focus of Hollywood ceremonies, and empowering speeches came from stars including Janelle Monae.
    Following Adele’s massive success last year, it was largely a night of disappointment for British nominees but absentee Ed Sheeran did win best pop vocal album with Divide and solo performance with Shape Of You.
    Mars won all three top honours, with 24K Magic seizing record and album of the year and That’s What I Like winning song of the year.

    Whereas black outfits were the symbol for the Me Too movement at the Golden Globe, stars including Corden, Rita Ora and Cardi B each had a white rose with them at the Madison Square Garden show.
    Monae, introducing a performance by Kesha, also called Time’s Up on the 'abuse of power', saying the music industry is also affected by sexual harassment.

    'It’s not just going out in Hollywood, it’s not just going on in Washington it’s right here in our industry as well,' she said.
    'Just as we have the power to shape culture, we also have the power to undo the culture that does not serve us well.'
    But while women featured heavily in sentiment and performances, Alessia Cara was the only female to win an award during the televised show on her own, with Rihanna featuring on Lamar’s winning track LOYALTY..
    Cara said she was wearing a white rose to show support to women not just in the entertainment industry.
    'Things are uneven and unequal and they need to be talked about and they need to be changed,' she said backstage after winning her award.

    Country singer Maren Morris dedicated a performance to victims of the bombing at the Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena as well as those who were killed in the massacre at the Las Vegas festival where Morris had performed.
    Awards were also posthumously given to Leonard Cohen, for best rock performance, and Carrie Fisher, for best spoken word album with her reading of her memoir The Princess Diarist.

    In 2016, 36-year-old Beyoncé released her Lemonade album which featured tracks that addressed problems the pair had been having in their marriage, most notably in the track Sorry, which includes the line 'You better call Becky with the good hair.'
    Jay-Z released 4:44 a year later to address their relationship from his perspective, such as including the line Leave Me Alone Becky in the track Family Feud.
    And Jay-Z previously admitted that whilst the pair had 'a lot of conversations' about the music they were releasing, hearing the tracks made them both 'uncomfortable'.

    'The best place is right in the middle of the pain. And that's where we were sitting. And it was uncomfortable. 
    'And we had a lot of conversations. [I was] really proud of the music she made, and she was really proud of the art I released. And, you know, at the end of the day we really have a healthy respect for one another's craft. I think she's amazing.'
