As kids, we all experienced this dilemma, right? You’re at a birthday party, the cake is sitting right there in front of you, but you have to wait for the adults to stop singing and blowing out candles before you can get your hands on all that frosting. It goes without saying, but Blue Ivy Carter—the daughter of Jay Z and Beyonce, and the inevitable heir to the illuminati—doesn’t need to play by the rules.
During Beyoncé’s 35th birthday party this weekend—a Soul Train-themed event that saw Diddy don a flowing wig, and Swizz Beatz rock a multi-colored neck scarf—Blue Ivy could be heard shouting “Happy birthday mommy!” right before sticking her fingers into the cake.
There was no way a 4-year-old was going to wait for Beyoncé to finish that speech. In this moment, we are all Blue Ivy Carter.
