"I told her to get in the car the other day because she was asking a thousand questions and we had to leave for school," he recalled to Letterman. Hov and Blue were making their way to school when the 6-year-old decided to tell her father how she felt. "I just hear a little voice [say], 'Dad, I didn't like the way you told me to get in the car the way you told me,'—she's six—'It hurt my feelings.'"
Astounded by her honesty and emotional maturity he responded, "That's the most beautiful thing you've ever said to me."
It’s no surprise that Blue is able to communicate her feelings so well. It’s been known that she is light-years ahead of her peers (and ahead of the rest of us pleebs)—very few 6-year-olds have the gumption to get into a bidding war with Tyler Perry over a painting, and have the money to walk away victorious. And let's not forget the moment she told her parents to calm down during Camila Cabello's speech at the Grammys, which became one of the most talked about of the whole award show.
The preview follows two snippets from the next episode of Netflix's My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman, where Jay discusses fellow rap icons Snoop Dogg and Eminem, and opens up about the first time his mother, Gloria Carter, came out to him. "Imagine having to live your life as someone else and you think you're protecting your kids," he said of his mother. "For her to sit in front of me and tell me 'I think I love someone,' I really cried...I cried because I was so happy for her that she was free."
This will be the fourth of six episodes in the show's first season, following Letterman’s interviews with Barack Obama, George Clooney, and Malala Yousafzai. The Jay Z interview streaming April 6, only on Netflix.
