Blue Ivy Carter Makes History With VMA Win

With a father that hustled his way from the murderous streets of the Marcy Projects to musical fame and later rare black billionaire status as a businessman and a mother who is arguably the worlds reining pop music diva — Blue Ivy Carter came into the world with a lot of expectations foisted on her. 

So, far the oldest of Jay Z and Beyoncé’s brood, has proved them inadequate. 

Sunday at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards, the nine-year-old became the VMA’s youngest winner ever, adding the Moonperson to an already impressive collection that includes a Grammy and a BET Award. 

Carter got the award for her credited work on her mother’s song “Brown Skin Girl,” which appeared on The Lion King: The Gift album and won for Best Cinematography at the VMA’s. While it is nowhere near her mother’s record 30 MTV wins, it’s impressive nonetheless considering the previous record holder was then 17-year-old Billie Eilish.

The win also continued a series of remarkable wins for both Carter and the team that began when she became the youngest BET Award winner thanks to the song at eight and earlier this year when she became the second-youngest Grammy winner when “Brown Skin Girl” was named best music video.
