Jay Zâ€™s penchant for buying and rhyming about high-dollar art pieces may be causing a ripple effect throughout the Carter family. Blue Ivy was filmed at a recent auction attempting to get in on the action. While BeyoncÃ© was honored for her humanitarian work at the Second Annual Wearable Art Gala at Los Angeles’ Alexandria Ballrooms in Los Angeles Saturday night, Blue repeatedly placed five-figure bids on a painting by visual artist Tiffanie Anderson.
As Bidding escalated, Blue raised her paddle indicating a placed bid for $17,000. You can catch the exchange, including Jay Zâ€™s hilarious reaction, in the Instagram clip above.
â€œOh yâ€™all made me come from behind the podium, because Blue was out there bidding,â€� the auctioneer noted. â€œYou gonna do 19?â€�
A giggling Blue Ivy raised her bidding paddle again and seemingly confirmed a desire to drop nearly $20,000 on Andersonâ€™s â€œYoung Sindey.â€� Blueâ€™s father, co-creator of songs such as â€œMoney Ainâ€™t A Thingâ€� and â€œPicasso Baby,â€� didnâ€™t seem particularly pleased.
â€œLet me tell you, her mother and father have been talking about how you gather art,â€� the auctioneer added. â€œThat is a big deal for African-Americans. You know Miss Tina told me all of this.â€�
Itâ€™s unclear what the final bid for â€œYoung Sidneyâ€� came in at, and there hasnâ€™t been any confirmation on if Blue Ivy secured the piece. If youâ€™re interested in getting a closer look at the work of art Blue wanted to drop $19,000 on, check out a closer view of Andersonâ€™s â€œYoung Sidneyâ€� in acrylic and crushed glass above.
