Star: Beyonce takes Blue Ivy to Target to see how ‘real people’ live & shop

There always seem to be a lot of “concerns” about Blue Ivy Carter, just as there seems to be a lot of open concern-trolling. Again, the child is only 6 years old! When she’s out in public – which is the only time we see her or hear about her – she’s well-behaved and well-mannered. She is the adored first child of a superstar couple, so of course her air is going to be more rarefied than the average child’s. The recent stories we’ve had about Blue – from Blue telling her parents to stop clapping at the Grammys, to Blue placing some bids at a charity auction her grandmother organized – have cracked me up. I’m not worried about Blue. Blue is going to be fine. But I guess Beyonce might be slightly concerned that Blue might lose touch with the common folk at the ripe old age of 6. One way to counter that might be to cancel Blue’s stylist, the same one she’s had since she was 20 months old? Beyonce’s going a different route though – Bey is allegedly taking Blue on shopping sprees at Target. Hm.

An insider reveals to Star that even Beyonce loves a bargain, and is teaching her precocious little girl Blue Ivy the value of a dollar with shopping sprees at Target.

“Bey thinks it’s very important that Blue learns how real people live,” explains a source, noting that Blue makes a beeline for panda sheet masks and unicorn straws, while Mom opts for ChapStick and cocoa butter lotion. “In fact, Bey tells Blue that when they got to Target, her job is to find a super deal, a discount that’s really worth it!”

[From Star Magazine, print edition]

“Bey thinks it’s very important that Blue learns how real people live.” Who said that, Gwyneth Paltrow? Gwyneth called up her dear friend Beyonce and told her “darling, you must encourage Blue to spend time amongst the peasantry at least once a year. Take her to Target, it’s like an upscale Walmart.” And then Beyonce looks at Jay-Z and mouths the words, “What’s a Walmart?” As for the actual story… who knows if it’s true. Neither Beyonce or Jay-Z grew up wealthy, so I would actually imagine that they are conscious of the fact that they need to teach their children about money and how “real people” live. Can that be achieved through Target shopping sprees? God knows.

    I think folks should reserve judgement on celeb kids. I mean I have to bite my tongue when I see Prince George and wonder whether he is spoiled silly. I wouldn’t know. I only see pictures.

    • Mrs. Wellen Melon says:

      Yeah, kids are not fair game.

      As for Target clothes, I recently had the chance to hear Elizabeth Cline speak. She wrote a book on fast fashion, Overdressed: The Shockingly High Cost of Fast Fashion. Highly recommend it to anyone interested in environmental and social justice issues surrounding fast fashion (Target, H&M, Forever 21, etc.) and ethical fashion.

      • lisa says:

        i second the book recommendation, the availability of super cheap stuff enabling us to have so much more than we need isnt good for the planet or the people who make them

      • klc says:

        Fast fashion is popular for kids because they grow out of the clothes in a couple months and everything has to be replaced.

        My daughter’s jeans from the beginning of the school year fit like capris now. I am not going to spend 50.00 on “Non-Fast Fashion” jeans that I will need to replace in a few months.

        I donate all of the outgrown clothes to the local charity clothes store.

      • Merritt says:

        This is part why my sister and her friends have a kids clothing exchange between them.

      • kittyhawk says:

        I haven’t read that book yet, but I did read an article about how cheap clothing manufacturing is super toxic for the environment. The amount of waste is shocking, and clothing scraps at some of the places is burned producing chemical smog or put in enormous landfills. The industry counts on people buying new clothes every season, pushing trends with mass produced sweatshop made clothing. These are the clothes sold at Target, Walmart etc. So little is made in the U.S. and Europe because good working conditions aren’t cheap.

    • Milla says:

      George and Blue look like kids with opinions. They make faces, they are engaged, at least that’s what we see and it is cute.

      But they are kids and with all the photographers, it’s not going to be easy for any of celebrity kids. Why not blur their faces until they are older?

      • AnnaKist says:

        I often wonder that, too, Milla. A couple of my friends shut down their Facebook accounts after laughingly Googling themselves and seeing loads of their kids’ photos show up. I use no social media, and have instructed my children to never post photos of me if they know what’s good for them. I can make those decisions, children can’t. And so many young children I know (I’m a teacher) think nothing of posting photos of themselvs, family and friends to their social media, adding every detail they can think of. It’s nothing for them to throw away their privacy, because they see their parents, not only do it, but do it with their children. It’s an uphill battle instructing children about online safety and protocol, which is now part of the syllabus for Australian schools. I’m sure millions of theses have been written n this topic… Celebrities can choose to expose however much they want of their lives and self to the world – we can choose not to look. Their children do not get to choose, amd sadly, plenty of people do choose to look.

      • luxey says:

        Well, when your parents trot you out at award shows and fashion shows dressed by a stylist, I guess they don’t want their kid to have privacy.

    • Veronica T says:

      I know, but this just smacks so much of the rich and rarified “slumming” to see how the peasants live. Leaves a bad taste.
      I can’t even on this. It is just absurd.

    • AV says:

      I agree, but I judge the ish out of the parents. Taking her to Target as if it’s a zoo! “Look, Blue! It’s a *poor* person!!”

  2. NameChange says:

    I love Blue. Her upbringing is going to be different from those of Jay and Beyoncé simply because they have so much fame and money. No, Blue and Bey can’t walk into Walmart and browse, like we do. Get over it, people.

    This bit “Gwyneth called up her dear friend Beyonce and told her “darling, you must encourage Blue to spend time amongst the peasantry at least once a year. Take her to Target, it’s like an upscale Walmart.” ” cracked me all the way up. :-)

  3. Millennial says:

    I dunno if I think Target is the right place for that. It’s basically where middle to upper middle class white moms shop so they don’t have to deal with going to clusterf*** that is Wal-Mart. I wouldn’t necessarily say it represents real people.

    • LaraK says:

      Wow! This is totally why I shop at target! And yes, I’m a middle class white mom. And yes, I basically see a thousand versions of me every time I go to target.

      Walmart is much more representative. But yeah, it’s all kinds of gross.

    • Rhys says:

      Too true. One of thw guys I know who lives in Los Angeles and is a millionaire several times over, goes shopping to Target. No assistant, nothing. Just goes ther to pick up new towels and such for his enormous mansion.

      • Patricia says:

        A friend of mine was once standing behind Angelina Jolie in target in LA! Yes the celebrities and super rich shop there. Maddox was little so it was a long time ago. Maddox kept reaching for the towels my friend had stacked on the counter and knocked them over, and Angelina apologized to my friend. My friend said “oh no need to apologize” because Maddox was just being a normal little toddler doing that. She said Angelina was a little frazzled by it. So funny, just a normal mama in Target with a toddler having grabby hands. She came off as very normal and very down to earth, to my friend.

    • Beth says:

      I’m white, lower middle class, will never be a mother, and Target is where I met my upper class black boyfriend while we were both shopping. I love Target, but we stay away from the cheap,chaotic nightmare that’s called Walmart

    • Betsy says:

      Uhh…. I shop Target because I’m Minnesotan and it’s the “hometown” option. And while it is big business, they’re about a thousand times less shady than Walmart.

    • Veronica S. says:

      LOL, when Target first came out and started pushing itself as the “classy Walmart,” my mom used to tell people it should be pronounced “Tar-zhay” and accented with a hand flourish when spoken of. The fact that they’re going to add in-store drinking just tells you that they know their market well.

      • Alissa says:

        lmao your mom and literally every other middle aged person when Target became a big deal. 🙄

      • Veronica S. says:

        WHAT THE HELL I HAD NO IDEA. I always assumed it came out in the late 90s because that’s when I remember the dog with the little target on its face.

      • Liberty says:

        Target started in the 60s as a store business in a building, yes.. But a brilliant ad man mad men type genius from the NYC agency world, by way of growing up in Ohio, moved to Minneapolis in the early 70s. He propelled the creative and merch vision and helped turn that Target concept into the Target you know today during the 1980s. He did so by incorporating the creative fun and values of parent company DHC’s Dayton’s department stores (their main downtown store was the one in front of which Mary Tyler Moore threw her hat into the air in the famous MTM US show opening credits). He was famous in the industry. I had the pleasure of working on a partner project with him early in my career and he was a major retail guru still having a thousand ideas a day. He gave birth to Target, really.

    • MellyMel says:

      I’m black, middle-class and not a mother and will always choose Target over Wal-Mart. I refuse to give that store my business. “Real” people shop at Target at least where I live.

    • magnoliarose says:

      I don’t even really know what “real” people means. Being poorer is just as real as being middle class or whatever class. I think perhaps usual or ordinary would be a better description.
      I can’t with Walmart. Their policies are abusive, and the vibe is depressing and a little hostile. With good reason.
      When I used to visit my relatives in Louisiana, I would take my elderly great aunts to Walmart and feel like shanking someone by the end of the shopping trip. They were on a fixed income, and I liked to help them stock up, but they would complain about the store in French and hardly buy anything because the employees were rude and they thought the items all came from a sketchy place in China. So we would end up at their favorite places, with some of the same brands but they didn’t believe they were the same.

      • imqrious2 says:

        Thank you! I was just going to say the same thing! Less $$ doesn’t make you less “real” lol.

        Look, there is a place for buying at Bloomingdales, and a place for buying at Target. I buy different things at different stores for a reason. Buy where/what you can comfortably afford. Simple. You shouldn’t have to impress anyone but yourself.

      • Veronica S. says:

        Yeah, that’s more what keeps me out of Walmart. I support wage increases for all retail employees, but Walmart is just cartoonishly evil in their practices.

    • Jordan says:

      Walmart was where the real people shopped in the south. My hometown we had three super Walmart’s and one target. Being out in Washington now, if you go to Walmart here then you’re watching loss presentation chase the addicts out of the store with stolen merchandise.

    • Merritt says:

      I’m a middle class biracial woman. I shop at Target because the stores are usually cleaner and they typically pay their employees better wages than Wal-Mart.

    • Wiffie says:

      Middle class people are real people. Lower class people are real people. Upper class are real people.

      It’s impossible to base a huge population, like The World minus The Carters, on a group of people who shop at a store.

      She’s showing her the population who shop at Target (hint- more than just middle class moms). If you go to a thrift store, you show the population who shops at a thrift store (more than just poor folk). Nothing wrong with showing how a different group lives and shops.

    • Victoria says:

      The target I go too has become “people of Walmart” so idk where this elitist view came from… I think the goal for both Mom and daughter should have been how much useful stuff can you buy for under $20 ?? “Real people” (like me) always come out with more than intended to spend ($90 wtf! I wanted lotion only!) and forgetting why they went…

    • Helen Smith says:

      I have Walmart and Amazon ship to me. I love online because I’ve always wanted to be a shut in and delivery allows me to be one.

  4. Eleonor says:

    Seeing normal people…like going to the zoo???

  5. DiligentDiva says:

    This is like good but the way they framed it has me dying

  6. Nicole says:

    First of all this is Star mag. Since when do we take anything they say at face value? Second cool if she shops at target but this quote was cringe.
    But I cannot wait for the comments on this because people love to tear down a 6 year old. Esp when that child is black

  7. Ellaus says:

    Are we believing Star now?

    I don’t think neither Beyonce nor Blue Ivy visit Walmart, and if they do, it is *not* to show ver child how the resto of us live. If they were worried about their lack of touch with reality, i imagine doing charity and having do activities with normal kids would do.

    • IlsaLund says:

      Both Target and Walmart have online shopping so if Beyoncé actually wanted their goods, that’s most likely how she’d buy them. It would be total chaos if Beyoncé showed up at Target or Walmart to shop.

    • Kitten says:

      “i imagine doing charity and having do activities with normal kids would do.”

      And how do you know what Blue Ivy does every day?
      I mean, even if she were to attend two charity events a month (she doesn’t), she still has how many hours left to play and do “normal” kid things?

      Look, her parents are extraordinarily wealthy and as such, it’s safe to assume that she will grow up differently than me or you. That being said, I don’t understand the need that some of you have to characterize Blue as some spoiled princess living in a bubble of wealth and privilege, completely divorced from reality.

      I have no doubt that her parents make time for Blue to just be a kid and I don’t know why that would be so hard to believe for some people??

      • Ellaus says:

        @kitten. I have not criticized Blue Ivy in any way. Not even Beyonce nor Jay-z. I was just pointing the stupidity of the star article.
        I was saying that (going with the stupid estar premise) If they wanted to give her some sense of normalcy, there are other better and nurturing ways. I did not presume to know what this kid does in her free time, and I al totally sure her parents can devise a better way to raise her child than I do.
        I don’t really understand your comment.

    • magnoliarose says:

      No, I don’t believe Star.
      I side eye the intentions behind this story too.

  8. SM says:

    Never thought I would say that, but I relate. We, as parents who have an average, normal lives spoil our kids just by shielding them away from all the bad in the world and hence at times I feel like my 4 year old fails to appreciate whatever he has in his life: both parents, a safe, nice home, always fresh food, new clothes, etc. Because then these kids just start asking for more and more to actually appreciate the comfortable life they have and their parents struggle to ensure them.
    However, back to this story- I call bs. Because I don’t think Bey would ever find her way to Target.

  9. CalamityAM says:

    If this is true, I find it completely insulting. ‘Real people’ can be poor or rich and doing things like this promotes the divide between rich and poor and automatically makes the kid think she’s better than those people. There are ways of grounding people without insulting another class. And if my 6 yr old ever told me to stop clapping, I’ll be clapping all night long.

    • NameChange says:

      Or she can just be giving her kid another perspective? I’m solidly middle class, but grew up in the inner city. I take my kid to the inner city to see how I grew up and how those people live. It’s grounding for him to see how systemic racism has kept an entire population from prospering. Beyoncé may take Blue to Target so Blue can see that not everyone has personal shoppers and maids and staff. It’s a matter of perspective. And has nothing to do with you/us, really.

  10. Gwen says:

    I have no comments in this story because I don’t think it’s true how it’s framed. But I would think generally any criticism toward Blue Ivys upbringing is directed at her parents, not the child herself. For example, I don’t think Blue Ivy demanded a stylist and if people criticized the clapping story again that’s a criticism of her parents letting her getting away with completely normal child behavior.

  11. IlsaLund says:

    This is BS from a tabloid rag. Nothing credible about it. I’m no Beyoncé Stan, but it’s appalling how she’s attacked so ferociously as is 6 year old Blue Ivy. With the recent good press Beyoncé’s received on her Coachella performance, the daggers are really out and the crazy BS is flowing like wine. Gotta tear a sister down and keep her in place. SMDH.

  12. lower-case deb says:

    i bargain surf amazon and the likes for nonperishables and local farmer’s market (so local i can sleepwalk to it no problem) for everything else. because of laziness more than anything.

  13. Busyann says:

    So, a few years ago I was going through a particularly rough patch in my life. Somehow to cope, I started getting into the habit of going to Target and just aimlessly browsing and walking around. I couldnt tell you why I did this. There was no reason for it, but it brought such a comfort to me. I guess it was a safe space that allowed me to be around people that didn’t bother me, unlike Wal-Mart where you can literally get trampled if you linger too long by the milk.

  14. TurkeyLurkey says:

    Well, I recently saw photos of Beyonce and Blue at target. I don’t buy the whole seeing how the other half lives though. I remember seeing Adele and even Michelle Obama with a baseball cap on photos at target a while back also. Maybe people just enjoy going to target.

  15. deets says:

    Well what else could I do
    I said “I’ll see what I can do.”
    I took her to a supermarket,
    I don’t know why,
    But I had to start it somewhere,
    So it started there.
    I said pretend you’ve got no money,
    She just laughed and said,
    “Oh you’re so funny.”
    Well I can’t see anyone else smiling in here.
    Are you sure you want to live like common people,
    You want to see whatever common people see

  16. Slowsnow says:

    What are “real people” pray tell?
    This is such BS. Can we please stop it with these nitpickings of the Carter-Knowles lives and let them live in peace like the wealthy people they are doing wealthy stuff?
    I agree with the posters who say this attention is verging on racism: are we nitpicking other celebs kids and their activities with them? Beyoncé and Jay Z are doing what everyone is doing in their milieu, nothing more, nothing less.
    This Walmart story sounds completely fabricated btw, and it it isn’t well, it isn’t.

    • magnoliarose says:

      It is over the top with them and their child.
      Newsflash I didn’t grow up going to big box stores, and I survived. The horror!!!
      There is so much to raising whole children, and economic status is not a guarantee either way. It is about parenting and not about things. There are a-holes in all classes and races. A stylist won’t make someone an overindulged tyrant.
      I have an outspoken daughter, and if someone didn’t know us they would assume she was possibly spoiled because of our lifestyle, but she isn’t. She just has a lot of opinions, and we don’t feel the need to squash her or tell her who is boss all the time. There is no way I would raise a brat, and she has rules and consequences, but I don’t feel the need to impress anyone else and show them I am in charge or apologize for our life.
      Why would they stop her from saying don’t clap if it didn’t bother them? What is the BFD? It is petty even to make a thing about it. I thought it was funny anyway. No one has any idea what her daily life is like, but it certainly seems like there is some grudge against her and her parents.

      And I wish people would stop denying it is racist. Stop trying to tell black people how to think or feel about something they know about just because YOU don’t get it. I have never seen the same reactions about white children anywhere on the internet that reaches this level.
      Is this the new “uppity”? That is basically the subtext of these ridiculous comments.

      FWIW I hate when someone tries to explain antisemitism to me, so I know what it feels like. It is arrogant and dismissive. Immediately a wall goes up between that person and me, and I know we will never be friends. If someone doesn’t believe me about me and lectures me, I stop the conversation and move on. I am sure other minorities know exactly what I mean.

  17. Miss Kittles says:

    Hmmm I think Bey prob loves Target just like the rest of us 🤷🏼‍♀️

  18. Crackfox says:

    Correction: Beyoncé DID grow up wealthy.

    Anyway, I think she’s teaching Blue to be smart about money. Beyoncé has spoken about being frugal and always looking for a deal.

  19. Luca76 says:

    Hmm I think there’s probably no truth to this story. As for Blue Ivy she’s an adorable kid but there are times when I get the Suri Cruise pre Katie’s escape vibe from Beyonce and Jay-Zs public appearances with her. Now of course she’s not in the public eye to the same level I’m still just hoping she gets to be a real kid. I mean I know she’s insanely privileged but she’s got the potential to do whatever she wants with her life and that could mean following her parents into entertainment of course but I hope she’s also empowered to do something that has nothing to do with image/fame and celebrity if that’s her calling. In general most celebrity kids flounder in life. I hope she and her brothers get the opportunity to do amazing things outside of Hollywood.

  20. boredblond says:

    The heading makes it sound like a trip to the zoo..

  21. indefatigable says:

    So that’s why all those rich celebrities keep starring at me in Target. I’m like an exhibit in the Zoo. Throw me a peanut. Bwa ha ha ha

  22. Chingona says:

    So at first I tried to give the benefit of doubt to the commenters making negative comments about Beyonce. That it wasn’t about race but they just didn’t like some random celebarty like Kim K. Now I see that it is definitely is racism. Every celeb or rich person is able to provide a better life for thier children that what most people are able to. My husband and I grew up dirt poor, literally. We sacrificed so much in order for our children to have a better lives then ours. Children with rich parents who grew up poor will never have the same lives as there parents but you can expose them to different people and show by example how to care for others. Beyoncé and Jay Z have multiple charitable originazations that they are part of. They also work and collaborate with people of all sizes,shapes, religions and sexual orientations. Beyonce is known for treating everyone around her with respect. Beyonce and Jay Z both have incredible work ethic. I dont think thier children will turn out to be spoiled brats. They just will have a easier life economically, which can come with its own issues, but to me at least it looks like they will be taught to appreciate their lives and to give back to others who have less.

    • bluhare says:

      I’m not a Beyonce fan so I’m a racist?
      I think that treating her child as an adult is a mistake, so I’m a racist?

      Both of those things are true statements so I guess I’m a racist.

      • Chingona says:

        Maybe! How exactly are they treating Blue as an adult? Judging or nitpicking a black women for something that a white women or other celeb would not be for, may make you a racist. There are different levels of racism; being a a KKK member, not wanting someone in your family to marry a person of color, walking to the other side of the street when you see a young black male, finding fault in everything that a black women at the top of her profession does as way to dimenish her accomplishments. One who has never treated anyone disrespectfully or committed any crime( as white celebs Bieber, Lohan, Downey). All those are racist thoughts or actions.

      • otaku fairy says:

        @Chingona: Have you noticed with Beyoncé that on many comment sections there seems to be this bizarre rush or salivation to trash her/her child specifically to be edgy and prove that one isn’t ‘Too P.C.’? It’s so strange, but it is another example of racism and sexism, and liberals and conservatives both do this sometimes.

  23. lucy2 says:

    Sounds to me like they needed a few things while out and stopped at Target. Scandalous! (sarcasm)
    The tabloids are grasping onto this “Blue Ivy is spoiled!” and are going to spin everything they do into that. It’s gross, and a 6 year old child should be off limits from criticism.

  24. aerohead21 says:

    Oh my open judgement is on their parenting, Blue Ivy. It’s not her fault and she shouldn’t be expected to understand or have a say in what’s going on. I do think though, that while she’s obviously going to grow up wealthy, there is a better way to raise your children to be humble and kind people to those who don’t have their good fortune…for example and I cringe just saying this…but Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis seem to have a decent handle on ho to raise their kids not to be entitled with regards to money.

  25. Betsy says:

    I have no idea how wealthy people are supposed to ground their children in any sort of reality. I remember reading (or trying to; BO-RING and self obsessed) Cary Grant¡s daughter’s autobiography and wealthy kids’ worldview just gets refracted through privilege such as most of us cannot imagine.

    It’s Star so I don’t believe it, but it’s interesting to think about how wealthy parents do or do not and can or cannot show their kids how normal people live. Beyonce and Jay-Z both grew up like normal people, but they’re also mega famous…. I dunno.

  26. ChrissyMS says:

    This is tough because let’s face it. Blue Ivy is never going to be “normal” or have a “normal” human experience. She may grow up to be a productive, kind and smart person but normal ….no. She lives in a fortress, has a staff, and her Mother is the greatest performer of all time. Parenting is hard so if it their desire to teach Blue how real people live….well good luck with that. But maybe she doesn’t really need that. You know?

  27. Natasha says:

    All I have to say, is I hope they didnt scoop up any Hunter for Target. That sh*t flew off the shelves and they can afford the real thing.

  28. Neelyo says:

    If she wanted to see how real people shop, she’d go to a Dollar Tree. Sadly, they are the fastest growing retailer and their CEO has credited their growth to the economy creating a larger customer base.

    • Other Renee says:

      I love the Dollar Tree store! I discovered it when I was going through a divorce and money was really tight to nonexistent. I still go there to buy things like birthday cards and gift bags, all of which cost much, much more anywhere else. Why spend $5.99 on a card when I can get it for $1 at this store? Or even fifty cents in the two for $1 section!

      Target is my favorite store. It used to be very Walmart-y. Plain Jane. They got smart and made it all look so attractive and FUN. It’s a really fun place to shop and wander around. When my daughter was a baby and then a toddler, I got all her clothes there. They were reasonably priced and she outgrew then in five minutes.

  29. Tiffany says:

    I think Bey likes Target. There have been sightings and photos of her shopping there in the past. So I put stock into this story about taking Blue there, but not for the reason.

  30. Luca76 says:

    To me I don’t worry about wealth in regards to BI it’s the way they seem to be cultivating and crafting an image and persona based on her being a divine baby. She’s got privilege for sure but she maybe a kid who has the looks, charisma, and talent of parents or she maybe a normal human being. The problem comes for celebrity kids when they have to face the reality that they aren’t their parents. They may not be able to be the biggest star of their generation ala Beyonce. If you look at even talented and successful stars like Natalie Cole, or Liza its definitely a huge issue to live in the shadow of a legend like Beyoncé.

  31. Harryg says:

    But do they go to… Walmart?
    I bet they go to Payless shoe store too, how cute would that be!

  32. Natalie S says:

    I watched Letterman’s interview with Jay Z last night. Based on the work Blue Ivy’s parents are doing, and her grandmother is doing, she will absolutely get an understanding of how privileged she is and many people struggle in their day to day life.

  33. Mophita121 says:

    Am I the only one who dislikes Target (ducks head)? I think it’s overpriced for horribly made products, and I don’t find the shopping experience that much more pleasant than WalMart (and I’ve definitely been to my share of Targets, so it’s not like it’s just the one by me that’s unpleasant). I try to avoid both stores altogether. I sometimes feel like I’m on an island of one with this opinion :-)

    Wow, I love reading all the comments – I never knew there was a distinction between Target and Walmart. A Target around me is 10 miles away there are 2 Walmarts around me within 5 miles. I go to Walmart to buy paper products (toilet paper, paper towels etc). I go around 6 am and if there are 6 customers in the store at that time in the morning – it is packed. Target around here opens at 8 – so put me down as a low-income person because I go to Walmart…

    The only thing I care about is that pink pantsuit she is wearing in the last photo w/ JZ. Spectacular. Love the blouse and the whole look. My guess is it isn’t from Tar-Zhay…..

    All I can say is there is a whole lot of sass & sparkle in those eyes… she’s like 6 going on 25!!
    I just get the impression this little girl has a *whole lot* going on upstairs- like she is an astute judge of people. I can’t explain why.

    “Bey thinks it’s very important that Blue learns how real people live.” Who said that, Gwyneth Paltrow? Gwyneth called up her dear friend Beyonce and told her “darling, you must encourage Blue to spend time amongst the peasantry at least once a year. Take her to Target, it’s like an upscale Walmart.”

    HAHHHA, we just need to change that “darling” to “dah-ling”! xD

    I go where the prices and coupons are right. Target, Walmart, Steinmart, Bed Bath & Beyond, etc.
