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.

After denying Jay-Z’s cool, Blue Ivy now asks for her dad’s fashion advice

In a new interview with Gayle King, Jay-Z discusses his evolving relationship with his oldest daughter, Blue Ivy.

Jay-Z and Beyoncé can sell out arenas around the world together and apart, but they weren’t always recognized as the global superstars they are by their eldest of three children, 11-year-old Blue Ivy.

Jay-Z, whom many might argue is the epitome of cool, revealed in a multi-part interview with Gayle King for “CBS Mornings” that he was once a source of embarrassment for Blue.

“She used to be frontin’ on me a little bit,” he told King when asked if his oldest child thinks he’s cool.

He added, “There was a time where she was like, ‘Daaaaad’,” he teased, doing an impression of Blue covering her face in embarrassment.

Whenever Blue would question her parents’ coolness, Jay-Z would reportedly tell her, “I’m cool. I don’t know what you sayin’; I’m cool! You got cool parents! At your house, your parents [are] cool.”

Some may recall Blue being less than impressed when Jay-Z was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2021. Thankfully, as she’s entered her preteen years, the mogul said she’s turned a corner on her perception of her father and his “coolness.”

“I catch her,” he said. “I catch her in the corner, you know? Now she asks me, you know, if this is cool; if her sneakers [are cool].”

Blue has not only asked her dad for style advice, she’s even begun to dress like him occasionally. The pair made headlines when they attended the Super Bowl at the State Farm Stadium in Arizona

Glittery Eyeliner Is On Every Makeup Maven’s Radar

Instagram is scintillating — courtesy of a trend that has MUAs spangling their lash lines with shimmer-drenched formulas. Think of it as a sprinkle of fairy-dust over your run-off-the-mill eyeliner — yup, we’re talking glitter-studded eyes. A Euphoria-like flick of shimmer sprawled out over the lids is one of the easiest ways to glamourise your look. Here’s what this trend is all about, and the different ways in which the people of the internet have interpreted it.

All That Glitters Is Golden…And Blue. And Purple.

This trend is a welcome switch-up from your jet-black flicks — adding a pop of resplendence to your look without overpowering the rest of your makeup. The secret to acing the trend, according to French MUA Violette, is to play around with razor-thin streaks instead of experimenting with anything too chunky or conspicuous. The MUA’s a fan of dipping a damp/wet brush into a pot of eyeshadow, and drawing cat-eye on either lid — she suggests tracing the lids close to the lash-line, and softening the edges with a little bit of (dry) shimmer-packed eyeshadow right above the eyeliner — before blending it into your crease ‘using your fingers as the oils in the skin melt the pigments.’

Pink Paradise

Notice how this MUA has layered her lids with a petal-pink lipstick and blended the pigment into the eyes until it has diffused into a lighter shade — and, then, she goes on to create a precise, fine-milled flick above the lash-line with a fine-tipped, gold-dipped brush. She has packed the inner corners with the colour too.

Sliver Of Silver

Draw a cat-eye flick, and frame it with a shade of silver before attaching a set of falsies to your lash line to capture the look. If you don’t have silver-coloured eyeliner
