Blue Ivy is a true blue hip-hop head and she’s not even 2-years-old!
In his “most revealing interview ever,” Jay Z covers the November issue of Vanity Fair and opens about being a first-time dad to 20-month-old daughter, Blue Ivy, and why she’s his “biggest fan.” Sharing how he first pursued now-wife Beyonce and addressing rumors that she wasn’t really pregnant with Blue, Jay Z gets personal with the magazine.
Though Beyonce, 32, has said Blue likes Jay Z’s music better than hers, the 43-year-old rapper says “that’s not true,” but admits his daughter did fall in love with his twelfth studio album, Magna Carta . . . Holy Grail.
“She does like her mother’s music — she watches [Beyonce's concerts] on the computer every night. But my album came out and I don’t know if Blue ever heard any of my music prior to this album — she’s only 18 months old and I don’t play my music around the house,” Jay Z explains. “But this album was new, so we played it. And she loves all the songs. She plays a song and she goes, ‘More, Daddy, more . . . Daddy song.’ She’s my biggest fan. If no one bought the Magna Carta [album], the fact that she loves it so much, it gives me the greatest joy. And that’s not like a cliche. I’m really serious. Just to see her — ‘Daddy song, more, Daddy.’ She’s genuine, she’s honest, because she doesn’t know it makes me happy. She just wants to hear it.”
That’s gotta be a great feeling to hear your kid ask to hear your work over and over again! We know how Hov likes to keep his private life private, but that’s something we’re glad he shared.
