No matter how big of a celebrity someone is, negative comments still seem to sting just as much.

One star who is no stranger to getting hate online is Blue Ivy, who has been getting critiqued on the internet since she was born. More recently, the 11-year-old appeared at select shows on tour with her mother, which also drew criticism from fans who thought her dancing was subpar.

In her new Renaissance World Tour concert film, Beyoncé revealed that after her eldest daughter joined her onstage, she was affected by online critiques of her performances.

PEOPLE reports that the singer revealed that Blue Ivy read some of the negative comments about her dancing after her first surprise appearance onstage in Paris back in May. Bey said that her daughter was determined to prove any naysayers wrong,  devoting herself to working even harder on her dancing from that point forward.

Beyoncé also revealed that the idea of Blue Ivy joining her onstage was not something she was too eager about.

In the beginning, the idea was that the 11-year-old would make just one onstage appearance–but even that wasn’t something Bey was excited about, insisting that performing in front of tens of thousands of people was no place for someone as young as Blue.

Beyoncé said in the Renaissance film, “She told me she was ready to perform, and I told her no,” PEOPLE reports.

The “CUFF IT” singer also said she almost passed out the first time her daughter joined her onstage.

Back in July, Blue Ivy’s grandma, Tina Knowles-Lawson, revealed to PEOPLE in July that Blue’s confidence soared “to the sky” following her first performance.

“She is 11 years old, and she had one week to prepare, and she’s just getting better and better,” said Knowles-Lawson, 69. “So I’m the proud grandma, always.”

She continued, “This is a heels family. You’re trained early to walk in heels,” before adding, “She’s having the time of her life, and I couldn’t be more proud of her because she really worked hard.”

In October, Jay-Z echoed that same pride for his daughter, telling Gayle King on CBS Mornings, “I still get goosebumps seeing her walk onstage.”

“She’s been born into a life she didn’t ask for. So since she was born, she’s been in scrutiny and the public eye and everyone having an opinion of even a little girl, how she keeps her hair,” the rapper said. “So for her to be on that stage and reclaim her power, and the song is called ‘My Power,’ you can’t write a better script.”
