Beyoncé Curated a Belated Birthday Party for Blue Ivy to Distract Us from ‘B6′

Can we keep the children out of this, Bey?

High Priestess of Athleisure, Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter, has used her daughter (once again) in dissuading the general public’s gaze from the imminent release of a new album. Bey went so far as to host a belated fairy tale-themed birthday party for Blue Ivy, despite the actual date of her birth being Jan. 7. There was archery, literal fairies, and a glamping lounge seating area that would put a Real Housewife’s Coachella set-up to downright shame.


Not to mention, Blue was in her element — probably due in part to her knowledge of when her mother’s music will grace us once again and all will be right in the world.
