“It’s unfortunate that it makes up such a large part of the receiving academy,” said the nonprofit group in the meantime CEO Harvey Mason Jr. recently told the Los Angeles Times. “We really wish we had them on stage.”

While there’s still a chance Bey graced the red carpet at the star-studded affair, it’s safe to say that she and her daughter already have a lot to celebrate.

In June, Blue Ivy received its first BET Award for “Brown Skin Girl”. Later that year she narrated the audiobook for the New York Times bestseller Hair Love from Matthew A. Cherry. In 2018, she proved she had an eye for design when she bid $ 19,000 for a masterpiece at her grandma’s home Tina Knowles‘Wearable Art Gala.

Speaking about motherhood in an interview with British Vogue last November, Beyoncé said she had “become a better listener” because of her children.

“Blue is very smart and she knows there’s a shift going on, but it’s my job as a parent to do my best to keep their world as positive and safe as possible for an eight-year-old,” according to the Grammy Der Winner said at the time, “My best advice is to love her harder than ever. I let my daughter know that she is never too young to help change the world.”
