The star at this year’s Video Music Awards wasn’t Miley’s tongue or Nicki’s butt but something much more innocent as proven by the night’s most popular tweets: Beyoncé and Jay Z’s daughter Blue Ivy.
“OMG BLUE IVY JUST PERSONALLY WAVED AT ME,” Katy Perry wrote in a tweet that has now been retweeted over 40,000 times and favorited over 70,000 times. “MY LIFE IS OVER.” Taylor Swift had a similar experience: “Every time I see Blue Ivy, I cry,” Swift mentioned in a tweet that has been retweeted over 18,000 times and favorited over 44,000 times.
As for Vine, MTV’s clip of Beyoncé singing “Bow down, bitches” from “***Flawless” has been looped over 2 million times and liked over 50,000 times, while a clip of her kissing her daughter, held by Jay Z, on the cheek has been looped nearly 3 million times and liked over 45,000 times.
Vine star Jerome Jarre’s clip, however, is the most popular so far: In the Vine, looped nearly 4 million times and liked by over 130,000, Jarre looks into the camera as Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande dance onstage behind him.
