First steps, first words, first VMAs?
Jay Z was snapped carrying Blue down a backstage hallway at Sunday’s performance, with the 2½-year-old wearing a shiny gold dress and carrying hot pink sunglasses (her future’s so bright, she’s gotta wear shades).
Technically speaking, Blue was at the VMAs once before – when Beyoncé announced her pregnancy in 2011.
Maybe one day Blue herself will be performing.
