Jay-Z finally earned daughter Blue Ivy’s stamp of approval.
The 53-year-old rapper and record producer opened up about his relationship with the 11-year-old during a multi-part interview with Gayle King for CBS Mornings. “Do your kids think you’re cool?” King, 68, asked Jay-Z, who hilariously revealed that Blue used to give him a hard time but has since come around.
“She be frontin’ on me a little bit,” Jay-Z joked. “But 1698630575 I catch her. I catch her in the corner, you know? Now she asks me, you know, if this is cool, if her sneakers [are cool].”
When King asked if that means Blue wants the Grammy winner’s fashion advice, he proudly responded, “Yeah, yeah, yeah.”
Jay-Z went on to share that “there was a time” where Blue would get embarrassed by her dad, prompting him to tell her, “‘I’m cool. I don’t know what you saying. I’m cool! You got cool parents! At your house, your parents [are] cool.”
Jay-Z shares Blue with wife Beyoncé, whom he wed in April 2008. The couple are also the parents of 6-year-old twins, Rumi and Sir.
In Blue’s defense, the preteen is a star in her own right. She made headlines earlier this year when she joined Beyoncé, 42, on stage during her Renaissance World Tour to perform “My Power.” After her first surprise appearance in Paris, Blue showed off her daring skills at other concert stops, including London, New Jersey, Atlanta, Houston and New Orleans.
