Blue Ivy Bidding

Blue, Bey and Jay were attending the Wearable Art Gala in Los Angeles.

Blue Ivy is already out here trying to start her art collection, it seems - but not if her father has anything to do with it.

The six-year-old daughter of Beyoncé and Jay-Z placed some hefty bids during the second annual Wearable Art Gala in Los Angeles, which she attended with her parents.

Organised by Bey's mother Tina Knowles, the event benefited LA's WACO Theater Centre and featured an auction which saw attendees bid for fine art and paintings.

One painting in particular - "Young Sidney" by artist Tiffanie Anderson - appeared to catch Blue's eye, as she raised her paddle for a bid of $17,000. And the another for $19,000!

Jay-Z jumped in and jokingly tried to steal the paddle, before actor Tyler Perry ended up taking the portrait home for $20,000.

During the evening, Beyoncé received the Humanitarian Award for her charity work and philanthropic efforts,  while Jay-Z's mother Gloria Carter received the Everyday People Award.

Bey made an emotional speech as she received her award, saying: "I never thought people should receive awards like this because in my opinion, the giving is the reward and that’s enough,"

"I try to keep my charitable work quiet because I feel like these things should come from the goodness of your heart and nothing orchestrated as a campaign."

She added: "And if I’m honored, I keep it quiet because I feel like I could be doing more.”

Former First Lady Michelle Obama also sent a video message for the R&B singer, whom she hailed her "sister", and praised her inspiring charity work.
