Blue Ivy Carter slayed at the Grammys last night. She arrived fashionably late with her mother (in an all-white outfit, no less) and enjoyed the ceremony from the front row, seated between two of the biggest names in the music business—otherwise known as her parents—Beyoncé and JAY-Z.
Many would tremble in the presence of these two giants, but not Blue. She had the guts to tell her folks to stop clapping in the middle of the ceremony, and they obeyed immediately.

When Camila Cabello gave a moving speech about Dreamers, a certain line had the audience reacting with thunderous applause. But when JAY-Z and Beyoncé clapped along, their six-year-old daughter calmly turned to them and signaled them to put their hands down—and they did.
The internet did not let the moment go unnoticed. Read through some of the best reactions below.
Blue Ivy like, “No, we don’t clap for others. They clap for US”!!! 😂😂 pic.twitter.com/eAP2bxiVk5

Some people thought she was throwing shade at Camila.

But others believed she wanted Camila to be able to finish her speech uninterrupted.

Whatever the reason, Blue Ivy showed off a new side to her sass last night. The tweets didn’t end with her clapping, however. Her overall attendance at the Grammys turned into a meme.
There was a reference to JAY-Z going home empty-handed:

She looked a bit unimpressed with the show overall:

Her no-clapping moment became a very relatable meme:

Blue Ivy showed how much of a boss she really is:
I'm scared that Blue Ivy will find a way to fire me from a job she doesn't even know I have
— Cameron Cook (@iamacameron) January 29, 2018
protect blue ivy at all costs.
— Oxtail Gawd (@ThatDudeMCFLY) January 29, 2018
But she still looked cute as a button:
Never stop being you, Blue.
