The gala, which was hosted by her Bey's mother Tina Knowles Lawson and step-dad Richard Lawson, raised money to benefit teen mentorship programs.

Most kids probably spent their Saturday night asking to play video games and asking their parents to buy them Happy Meals, whereas Blue Ivy didn't even ask when she bid $19,000 on a piece of art. Jay-Z jokingly tried to pull the paddle away from her and tug her arm down while the auctioneer expressed admiration that the family had instilled in little Blue the importance of building an art collection.

'19 to Miss Blue, ' the auctioneer concluded as a anxious Jay tried to gently lower her raised arm.

Not a bad life at all for Blue Ivy Carter! The moment was captured on camera and went viral on social media.

"19 for Miss Blue, yes, and she's like, 'I like that, '" she said. "Listen, you know Ms. Tina told me all of this".

Vil Mirzayanov, who now lives in New Jersey, is quoted in Novaya Gazeta as saying the use of Novichok in Britain was a "shock". But Peskov repeated that "Russia has nothing to do with this story", in comments carried by Russian news agencies.

Tyler Perry then bid $20,000 and won the art piece. The youngster successfully bid $10,000 for a Samuel Levi Jones artwork, according to Vanity Fair.

The gala also honoured Jay's mother, Gloria Carter, with an Everyday People Award, in recognition of the work she's done in co-founding the Shawn Carter Foundation to help young people in financial difficulty attend college by providing scholarships and mentoring. "Why you think I'm up here talking about it?"

The event also saw Blue's handwritten notes celebrating the award winners.

The evening's theme was "From WACO to Wakanda" and everyone's outfits reflected the incredible influence box-office hit Black Panther has had on the globe already - but it was Blue that has had our tongues wagging.
