For 10-year-old Blue Ivy Carter, not even her billionaire hip-hop mogul of a father is exempt from potentially messing up a cute curly do.
Newsweek reported that rapper and entrepreneur Jay-Z and his daughter attended an NBA Finals game between the Golden State Warriors and Boston Celtics at San Francisco’s Chase Center. Blue Ivy, adorably resembling her mother, singer Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, sat courtside with her dad wearing a black leather motorcycle jacket before being caught on camera during a loving father-daughter moment.
As the 24-time Grammy Award-winner was announced on the sports venue’s jumbotron, Jay-Z reacted with all smiles while chucking up a peace sign and embracing his daughter with a hug and kiss on the cheek. Blue Ivy smiled at the warm gesture but attempted to intercept her father’s hug from crushing her curls. She grabbed his arm, cautioning “Dad, my hair.”
Social media erupted with comments after a video capturing the Carters’ moment became a viral hit.
HuffPost’s senior front page editor Philip Lewis posted on Twitter, sharing the caption: “To us: Jay Z, the all time rap legend. To Blue Ivy: embarrassing dad.”
