Then came the moment when Blue jumped in on the live auction event and bid $17,000 on an acrylic painting of the actor Sidney Poitier. Her dad Jay Z’s reaction to that is just priceless. Watch below.
Jay Z tried to stop his daughter from bidding the tens of thousands of dollars but failed Blue Ivy didn’t even give up when the price bumped up to $19,000.
Blue was asked by the auctioneer if she’ll bid 19,000 dollars. Blue waves her number excitedly and beams when her name is called out to the crowd.
But Jay Z appears to be smiling through gritted teeth and even tries to put her hand down. Press lay to watch:

Vanity Fair reports Blue Ivy lost the bidding war to Tyler Perry, who won the painting for $20,000. But that didn’t stop Blue Ivy, who next bid $10,000 and won a different piece of art made up of deconstructed law and medical texts.
Reactions to video of Blue Ivy bidding $19000 for art after it was posted on Twitter include:
