“I can see [them in her],” he told Use in April 2018, calling his granddaughter a “star” who he will support “in anything and everything” she hopes to achieve in life. “I only have one criteria: ‘Is that your passion? Is that the thing that excites you when you go to bed at night and you can’t wait until the next day? If you are passionate about it, then you have a high chance of success. It can’t be what I want or what your mother and father want. It needs to be what you want to do.’ So if that was [her] passion, absolutely, I would be all for it.”

Blue already has a taste of the music business. Her mother placed her in several music videos, and her voice was heard on tracks with her parents.

More recently, Beyoncé revealed the moment she was extra proud to be Blue’s mother.

“One of my most satisfying moments as a mom is when I found Blue one day soaking in the bath with her eyes closed, using blends I created and taking time for herself to decompress and be at peace,” the Grammy winner said in her Harper’s BazaarAugust 2021 cover story

In an interview with British Vogue in October 2020, the musician added, “I truly cherish this time with my family. I’ve spent a lot of time focusing on building my legacy and representing my culture the best way I know how. Now, I’ve decided to give myself permission to focus on my joy.”
