Beyonce once described Blue Ivy as her “road dog.” That was when Blue was just a baby, but apparently Blue has always been good on the road. Beyonce and Jay-Z take the child everywhere, to museums and gallery openings to charity fundraisers and concerts. The child sits front row at the Grammys. She’s been going on her parents’ tours since she was a baby, and now at the age of 6, she’s old enough to stand in the audience, in a group of adults and other kids and actually watch her parents’ concerts. I mean, I’m absolutely positive that Blue’s section is VIP AF. But she’s still among the Beyhive peasants, and those peasants film her reactions to her parents sometimes. Like this amazing moment when, in the middle of her parents’ concert, the video of Bey and Jay in bed came on the screen:

Or how about this, when Beyonce tried to dedicate a song to Blue and Blue was super-embarrassed for her uncool mom:

So what do you think? I kind of think Blue Ivy is the tour manager and whatever she says goes in the Carter household. According to Star, Blue has her own set-up backstage too:
Sources working on the On the Run II tour reveal that Blue Ivy Carter, 6, may by pint-sized but her demands are anything but.
“Blue had exact replicas made of her mom’s costumes so she could wear them too,” tattles a tipster. “Her dressing room is stocked full of Barbies and Peppa Pig toys. Plus she has a tea set with real china dolls and a playhouse that looks just like her mansion in LA.”
But the little princess needs more than just Lemonade to snack on! A source tells Star: “Blue has a chef make thick-crust pizza with pineapples served on pink and purple plates, and chocolate-marshmallow gelato – not too frozen, because that bothers her gums. Beyonce and Jay-Z know it’s over the top, but touring is stressful for a kid and they figured if she has her creature comforts, she’s less likely to melt down on the road!”

I think it just makes sense for Beyonce and Jay-Z – who have more money than they know what to do with – to just let Blue have her own space and her own toys and her own things around her at all time. I also bet that the chef makes Blue whatever food she wants. Now, all that being said, I think Blue is probably pretty easy-going about traveling at this point and I doubt it’s this involved. She’s been doing traveling and touring all her life, and she seems like a well-adjusted and funny little girl.
