“It’s unfortunate because she’s such a big part of The Recording Academy,” the nonprofit group’s interim CEO Harvey Mason Jr. recently told The Los Angeles Times. “We absolutely wish we had her onstage.”
While there’s still a chance Bey will grace the red carpet at the star-studded affair, it’s safe to say she and her daughter already have a lot to celebrate.
Back in June, Blue Ivy earned her first-ever BET Award for “Brown Skin Girl.” Later that year, she narrated the audiobook for the New York Times’ bestseller Hair Love by Matthew A. Cherry. In 2018, she proved she had an eye for design when she bid $19,000 on a masterpiece at her grandma Tina Knowles’ Wearable Art Gala.
Last November, Beyoncé opened up about motherhood in an interview with British Vogue, saying she has “become a better listener” because of her kids.
“Blue is very smart, and she is aware that there is a shift, but it is my job as a parent to do my best to keep her world as positive and safe as can be for an eight-year-old,” the Grammy winner said at the time, adding, “My best advice is to love them harder than ever. I let my daughter know that she is never too young to contribute to changing the world.”
