Blue Ivy goes viral for bidding USD 19k on art

The second annual Wearable Art Gala was held in Los Angeles on Saturday (March 17) and while Blue Ivy Carter stole the show with her bidding war with Tyler Perry, mom Beyoncé also had a moment in the spotlight that night.

At one point during the evening, the 6-year-old raised her paddle and bid $17,000 on an acrylic painting of a young Sidney Poitier but it wasn't enough.

Beyonce and Jay Z love to take daughter Blue Ivy Carter to A-list events with them - remember THAT shushing episode at the Grammys?

Former First Lady Michelle Obama also sent a video message for the R&B singer, whom she hailed her "sister", and praised her inspiring charity work. "Listen, you know Ms Tina told me all of this". Jay-Z comically pretends to try to wrestle it out of her hand. "I'm gonna teach you a lesson today", he jokes. Beyonce and her daughter, Blue Ivy, turned quite a few heads at the event with their matching gold ensembles.

When you're the six year-old daughter of two moguls, sometimes your weekly allowance gives you the opportunity to bid a couple bucks on artwork from time to time.

Beyonce said: "I feel very overwhelmed and I feel really full and really blessed and fortunate".

Beyoncé won the humanitarian award presented by her mother. Just a few weeks after she went viral for shushing her parents during the Grammy's, she is now trending on social media for her taste in fine art.

Blue bid an incredible $19,000 but couldn't beat Sidney's $20,000, before going on to bid $10,000 on another item.
