By the end of Beyoncé‘s Renaissance tour, fans weren’t only recapping how she wowed them. Several viral videos highlighted Blue Ivy from her first tour performance to her last. Her mother’s Renaissance film now highlights how the pre-teen addressed the early haters. And it’s very much giving “That’s Bey’s daughter.”
According to the NY Times’ recap of the film, Beyoncé first denied Blue’s request to perform on tour. Per PEOPLE, the mother felt strongly that performing in front of so many people was no place for an 11-year-old.
However, Blue Ivy felt ready to perform and reportedly pleaded her case with Mama Bey. The award-winning singer finally agreed to let her daughter take the stage for a one-time performance. That went down in May in front of about 70,000 people in Paris, per her grandmother Tina Lawson.
Blue Ivy Clapped Back At Haters In Her Way
Following the trending mother-daughter performance, Beyoncé penned a sweet note to Blue Ivy on Instagram.
“My beautiful firstborn. I’m so proud and thankful to be your mama. You bring us so much joy, my sweet angel,” Beyoncé wrote.

However, as mentioned, the performance also received negative attention online. According to the NY Times, Blue Ivy witnessed the harsh online critiques. Instead of quitting, Blue Ivy reportedly decided to up her game during practices. She trained harder, and in response, her mother allowed her to continue performing.
According to the outlet, Blue Ivy made a few appearances in Beyonce’s Renaissance. She’s reportedly a humbling presence for the woman the world knows as Queen Bey! In addition to her practices, Blue Ivy also reportedly shares her opinion on tour factors like stage design and song choices.
