Jay-Z Has Definitely Imagined a Superstar Future For His & Beyoncé's Kids Blue Ivy, Rumi, & Sir

Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s eldest child Blue Ivy Carter made plenty of headlines this year when she won her first Grammy award at all of 9 years old — not the first accolade for the young songwriter, and, just our gut feeling here, not the last. With music superstars like Beyoncé and Jay-Z for your parents, Blue Ivy has grown up in the world of fame and entertainment, as comfortable on music video sets and dodging paparazzi as she is riding a bike, and 3-year-old twins Rumi and Sir’s lives will play out within the Carter empire too. Jay-Z, in a rare, vulnerable interview about his family with the Sunday Times, acknowledged the legacy that’s built up around his family and how he thinks about his own children’s futures — and it’s clear that Blue’s fans aren’t the only ones who have dreamed about the idea of her becoming a big star just like her mom and dad.
