Blue Ivy is channeling internet hate and turning it into motivation for a better comeback.

People reported that in Beyonce’s record concert film, she revealed that her 11-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy, was affected by online critiques of her dancing. The ‘Single Ladies‘ singer said that Ivy read the negative comments about her moves after her first surprise appearance onstage in Paris in May.

Thereafter, the ‘Run the World‘ singer reveals in her concert film that her daughter channeled this negative energy and fuelled motivation to train better so she would be ready for her next appearance. People also reported that Beyonce did not agree with the notion of her 11-year-old daughter performing in front of thousands of people, adding that she almost passed out the first time her daughter joined her.

Per the New York Times, Beyoncé recalled in the film, “She told me she was ready to perform, and I told her no.”

Blue Ivy’s strong comeback on stage did not go unnoticed by the speculative crowds as the Rennaissance tour proceeded. According to People, a TikTok compilation in September showed a comparison of her first show where her moves did not look complete and strong, whereas, in a recent show in Houston, a massive, powerful comeback could be noticed.

One user commented on the video, “Seeing her confidence grow throughout this tour has been such a treat.”Another fan commented, “Watching her confidence grow throughout the tour has made me so proud! She’s improved so much🥹🥲.”

In a conversation with People in July, Ivy’s grandmother, Tina Knowles-Lawson, said, “She is 11 years old, and she had one week to prepare, and she’s just getting better and better,” adding, “So I’m the proud grandma, always.” She further jested, “This is a heels family. You’re trained early to walk in heels,” adding, “She’s having the time of her life, and I couldn’t be more proud of her because she really worked hard.”

Blue Ivy’s father, Jay-Z told Gayle King on CBS Mornings last month, “I still get goosebumps seeing her walk onstage.” He added, gushing over his daughter’s performance, “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,” adding, “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.”
