A raunchy video of Beyonce and Jay-Z shown at their London concert last weekend had the whole crowd going wild, except for one person — their eldest daughter.
Footage of the six-year-old’s mortified response to her parents’ antics has gone viral after it was shared on Instagram by Sara Emerson, a British Ticketmaster employee who was at the concert at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
The clip shows Blue grimacing and looking disgusted until, unable to take any more, she covers her eyes and ducks down behind a barricade until it’s safe to look again.
It’s not clear exactly what Blue had such a strong reaction to, but Twitter users have indicated it was a video interlude that showed Beyonce and Jay-Z in bed together, and also Queen Bey wearing lingerie to dance sensually in front of Jay.
Nobody should have to see their parents like that.
It’s not the first time the couple’s eldest child has publicly disapproved of her mum and dad’s behaviour.
At this year’s Grammy Awards, Blue was caught on camera signalling to her parents to hold their applause during ex-Fifth Harmony pop star Camila Cabello’s presentation.
With months of concert dates left on Beyonce and Jay-Z’s On The Run II tour, it looks like Blue Ivy could be in for some more parental embarrassment yet.
The couple are touring the UK, Europe and North America until October.

LISA Marie Presley claims her former business manager squandered her entire share of late father Elvis’ $US100 million ($135 million) fortune.
In new court documents obtained by the Daily Mail, Presley, 50, alleges that Barry Siegel assured her that her finances were in “good shape” while he whittled her $US100 million ($135 million) trust down to just $US14,000 ($19,000) in poor investments, including a hefty investment in the American Idol holding company, which went bankrupt after the show’s initial run ended in April 2016.
In her filing, Presley alleged that Siegel and Provident Financial Management billed her $US4.9 million ($6.6 million) to manage her $US100 million ($135 million) trust, amounting to a salary of just over $US700,000 ($950,000) per year for Siegel, reports the New York Post.
“Had Siegel disclosed the trust’s true financial condition to Presley and restricted spending to the trust’s ‘income’ rather than its principal assets, Presley would have lived comfortably on an annual budget of between $US1.5 ($2 million) and $US2 million ($2.7 million) per year, after taxes,” the documents claim.
“On this budget, Siegel’s lucrative compensation package would have amounted to between 40 to 50 per cent of Presley’s post-tax annual budget — an amount she undoubtedly would not have agreed to had she been aware of her true financial condition.”
She accuses Siegel of liquidating the trust’s assets after the American Idol investment failed to generate income in order to accommodate her lifestyle, alleging that he recommended she spend twice her annual post-tax income. That spending reportedly includes a $US9 million ($12 million) estate in England with a balloon payment of $US6.5 million ($8.8 million) in 2015 that the trust didn’t cover. She also claims that mortgages on her Hidden Hills, California and Hawaii homes were worth more than the properties themselves by 2010.
Siegel and Provident Financial Management scoffed at Presley’s allegations, claiming in a countersuit that her money problems are simply due to her own exorbitant spending. They’re seeking a cool $US800,000 ($1 million) in damages and argued that because Presley is going through a difficult time with her divorce from fourth husband Michael Lockwood, she’s pinning her troubles on them.
Lockwood, 57, demanded $US40,000 ($54,000) a month in spousal support from Presley, who claimed she was $US16 million ($21 million) in debt, $US10 million ($13 million) of which was back taxes alone. A judge ruled that while she doesn’t yet need to shell out monthly spousal support to the unemployed musician, she would have to pay $US50,000 ($67,000) to his lawyer for court fees.

ACTRESS Eva Longoria has given birth to her first child, a baby boy named Santiago Enrique.
The 43-year-old star gave birth to her son on Tuesday at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre — a favourite for celebrities — in Los Angeles.
Longoria and her husband, Mexican businessman Jose ‘Pepe’ Baston, told HOLA!USA magazine their little boy was a “beautiful blessing”.
A day before the birth, Longoria tweeted an image of herself wearing a Mexico soccer skip and clutching a mini version in a nod to the 2018 World Cup and her Mexican heritage.
Longoria married Baston, who has children Mariana, Natalia and Jose with his ex-wife Natalia Esperon, in 2016
“We have three children already, I have three stepchildren so it’s not like it’s anything new,” Longora told the magazine.
“We are enjoying it.”
The actress recently revealed that she was finding pregnancy “hard”. She said: “Everything’s uncomfortable. It’s not just your belly — everything gets bigger. I’ve never seen my thighs so big, and my boobs, they’re in the way of everything. It’s hard.”

IT MAY seem insane, but celebrities who were born in 1993 are now old enough to get married. At least that’s the case for Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson who are both 24, and recently got engaged after just weeks of dating.
But they’re treading familiar waters, as some of our favourite celebs may have been younger than you thought when they first tied the knot …
Joe and Sophie
Sophie Turner must have wanted to wait until she could have champagne to get engaged. She was just 21 when she said yes to Joe Jonas’ proposal.
Kim’s forgotten marriage
Never forget that Kim Kardashian’s first marriage was when she was just 19, to music producer Damon Thomas. They divorced in 2003.
Child star Hilary Duff must have felt all grown up at 22 when she married Mike Comrie who was 30 at the time. The two divorced in 2016, and share one son together, Luca.
Dolly Parton has been married to Carl Dean since she was just 20 years old although he rarely makes public appearances.
Britney … twice
2004 was a big year for Britney Spears, who at just 22 got married twice. First to her childhood friend Jason Allen Alexander, and then after an annulment, to Kevin Federline after dating for just three months. Two sons later, the couple split in 2007.
Posh n’ Becks
They’ve since become a rare celebrity marriage that’s lasted, but people had doubts when Victoria Adams, 25, got engaged to David Beckham, 24.
Jess and Nick
Newlyweds producers must have known that Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey’s relationship would result in drama. Simpson was just 22 when she said “I do” to 29-year-old Lachey. Four years later, they divorced.
Reese and Ryan
At just 23, Ryan Phillippe married 24-year-old Reese Witherspoon. They divorced in 2006 and share two children.
Megan and Brian
Megan Fox was just 18 when she started dating 30-year-old Brian Austin Green. Six years later, the couple got married. They divorced in 2015, then got back together to welcome their third child.

WELL, if there’s anyone who could pull off a look like this, it’s Naomi Campbell.
But (whisper it): We’re not even quite sure it’s working for her.
The legendary supermodel, 48, was papped at the Cannes Lion Festival in France this week strutting her stuff in a voluminous blue and white-striped pantsuit, complete with giant flared pants and ruffled sleeves.
It’s … a lot of look:
The age-defying supermodel reunited with some of her fellow 90s icons for a Versace runway show last year, strutting down the runway hand-in-hand to George Michael’s iconic hit, Freedom.
