Camila Cabello says Blue Ivy Carter shushing Beyonce at the Grammy Awards made her nervous
Camila Cabello hillariously wonders if Blue Ivy didn't like her speech
Queen B and Jay-Z's little baby girl Blue Ivy could make anyone nervous - after all, she is a huge part of the music royalty. Camila Cabello was no exception. In a BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show on Monday, the Havanna singer confessed that her feathers were a little ruffled as she saw little Ivy looking like she was trying to get Beyonce to chill during Cabello's Grammy speech. It almost appeared as though Ivy was sushing Bey.
The 20-year-old reportedly told radio host Nick Grimshaw what was exactly going through her mind after she saw the viral video. "Do you think she didn’t like my speech?" she asked quizzically.
She was heard thinking aloud as to what that gesture could possibly have meant. "What do you think that means? I had a moment of insecurity, I surprised myself. I literally had to stop because I can’t think about what she was thinking, [but] I feel like she’d like me."
As the host tried to make her feel better about the situation, telling her that she may be misunderstanding the whole thing. He said, "I think she was over the applause interrupting your speech. I think she was saying to her mum and dad, she’s not finished, she’s still talking!" He added matter of factly, that she was probably just asking them to be cool about it.
Camila, being as relatable as ever, said, "Thank god I didn’t look down at the crowd while that was happening."
The singer had actually orated a very heartfelt speech during this situation with Ivy. She reportedly said, "Tonight, in this room full of music’s dreamers, we remember that this country was made by dreamers, for dreamers, chasing the American dream. I’m here on this stage tonight because just like the Dreamers, my parents brought me to this country with nothing in their pockets but hope.
They showed me what it means to work twice as hard and never give up. And honestly, no part of my journey is any different from theirs. I’m a proud, Cuban-Mexican immigrant, born in eastern Havana, standing in front of you on the Grammy stage in New York City. All I know is that just like dreams, these kids can’t be forgotten and are worth fighting for."
She was talking about the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), which provides interim safety to unregistered immigrants who came to the US as kids. President Trump is ending the scheme next month.
