Beyonce's parents: chill out on Blue Ivy Carter

Think young Blue Ivy Carter has been in the press too much?

Well, Beyoncé’s parents apparently agree.

The singer’s divorced parents, Tina and Mathew Knowles, have expressed concerns over how their daughter and son-in-law Jay-Z are thrusting Blue Ivy into the spotlight, according to reports.

The new grandparents, who had a heavy hand in orchestrating their daughters’ careers, think Jay and Bey need to “back off a bit and pull back on the publicity they are helping generate for that child,” a Knowles insider said yesterday.

But it looks like Blue Ivy’s parents already have things under control. At the reopening his 40/40 Club in New York last night, Jay attended without Beyoncé (or Blue Ivy, thankfully) and had his handler tell reporters, “If you ask about the baby, he’s going to walk away.”

Perhaps Grandpa and Grandma Knowles are the ones who need to “pull back” on the publicity. What about you guys — how do you come down on Jayoncé’s parenting skills so far?
