Beyonce and Jay-Z recently held a birthday celebration for their favorite 2-year-old that could rival most adult parties. The legendary singer and rapper extraordinaire shut down the Jungle Island adventure park in Miami so that Blue Ivy could see the wildlife park and botanical garden without distraction.

Jungle Island is located on 18.6 acres between downtown Miami and South Beach and boasts 500 species of plants and more than 3,000 exotic animals, including Vulcan, a 900-pound liger, that is reported to be the largest cat in the world:

Building upon the rich tradition Parrot Jungle began in 1936, today’s Jungle Island is home to the world’s rarest and most incredible animals, including rare white tigers and a white lion; Mama Cass, the only tame Cassowary on the planet; the liger, who holds the Guinness Book of World Records title as the World’s Largest Cat; and Peanut and Pumpkin, only the third set of Orangutan twins to be born in captivity. Guests participate in hands-on interactions with fascinating animals, marvel at the engaging animal shows and presentations, and are amazed by the park’s breathtaking landscapes and vistas. Guests can also go behind the scenes on Jungle Island with an exclusive VIP Safari Tour. For additional information, please visit www.jungleisland.com (Source).

Mums the word on the total cost of Blue’s extravaganza, but to put things in perspective, a VIP safari tour costs $240 per person!

  1. She is soo cute here! He hair actually looks groomed in this pic and her hand motion is priceless!! Hey BLUUEEE!

  2. Personally it doesn’t look like dreads it look like her hair was rolled up and honestly I like it she doesn’t have weave or big barretts holding wearing her head down they’re taking good care of that child beyonce an d jayZ seem to be good parents

  3. IF THEY ARE ALLOWING HER HAIR TO GROW INTO DREADS THEN THAT’S GORGEOUS. NATURAL HAIR IS GORGEOUS. I DONT KNOW WHEN YOU SICK AFRICAN AMERICAN (WANNA BE CAUCASION) PEOPLE WILL GET THAT THROUGH YOUR HEADS. IF A CAUCASION CHILD WALKS OUT THE HOUSE WITH MESSY STRAIGHT HAIR THEN YOU ALL WOULDN’T BE SAYING ANYTHING, YET A BEAUTIFUL LITTLE AFRICAN AMERICAN GIRL CAN’T WEAR HER NATURAL HAIR THE WAY IT GROWS OUT OF HER HEAD (UP). I AM NATURAL AND SOME DAYS I WEAR MY HAIR OUT IN TWISTS, SOMETIMES I WEAR A FRO AND SOMETIMES I JUST LET IT BE. THIS IS WHY SO MANY YOUNG AFRICAN AMERICAN CHILDREN THINK THAT THEIR NATURAL HAIR IS UNATTRACTIVE OR MESSY OR NAPPY. BECAUSE OF ADULTS LIKE YOU GUYS COMMENTING ABOUT NATURAL HAIR. IT IS NOT A MESS. IT IS BEAUTIFUL. I HONESTLY HOPE THAT BEYONCE DOESN’T ALLOW HER CHILD TO WEAR WEAVE AND RELAXERS AND ALL THAT OTHER JUNK THAT WE SHOULDN’T EVEN BE PUTTING INTO OUR HAIR.

  4. Boy what money can buy you. Let us not forget Michael Jackson and how he had his kids living. If you want privacy, then have it at home with kids her own age. This girl has to grow-up and every step she takes her parents gonna shut down places. I can see a section of the place for privacy, but the whole PARK. This is only the beginning to a tragic life of Blue Ivy. Her name alone will have her mad.

    Still loving her……

  5. I think jay and bee are going for dreads for the little one. Because this mess cant be undone unless they shave it. So i think she will have nice long dreads when she is 4…

    • Girl/boy bye, you can take dreads down without having to cut off all your hair. Some of you all need to go outside more.

  6. No I am not contradicting myself….if I were to style my own nartural hair it would be time consuming because I am just very bad at it..but if I could afford my own personal professional hair stylist then I would have no wrrries…it would be quick and easy

  7. Whoa. I love natural hair when it’s combed, clean and neat. This girl’s hair is an absolute mess…it looks matted and not cleaned…Beyoncé you should be ashamed of yourself. Wow…she totally neglects her daughter’s hair.

    • How does her hair look “not cleaned”? You people are ridiculous. And her hair is properly cared for there is nothing wrong with her hair nor is it “matted”. She has a lace headband that is blending in with her hair. SMH. Black people are their own worst enemy. I swear. If her hair was being neglected then why is it growing?

    • How does her hair look “not cleaned”? You people are ridiculous. And her hair is properly cared for there is nothing wrong with her hair nor is it “matted”. She has a lace headband that is blending in with her hair. SMH. Noir people are their own worst enemy. I swear. If her hair was being neglected then why is it growing?

      • We are our own worse enemies and our priorities are SO misplaced. All the hate toward this little girl’s hair is unreal. I wonder how many of these people put off by this baby’s hair would show as much concern for a kid in real need in their own neighborhood? I tutor school age kid’s four nights a week, and I’ll tell you, I would rather see parents put half as much time into reading at night as they do hair and clothes. Also, I am sure Jay and Beyoncé have heard or read every opinion there is about their child’s hair for two years now and they haven’t changed what they are doing. So, clearly she’s not ashamed of herself and rightfully has no reason to be.

  8. I understand that u may want different hairstyles and therefire need to straughten and braid or put weaves in your hair…but some commenters on here sound like to be a blacj singer your hair must be straight ir curly or wavy at alk times….

    • No, you’re just spending too much time caring about someone else’s hair. It’s just hair. We cut it, perm it, press it, color it, put a wig on it, sew some weave in it, curl it, shave it, etc… and at the end of the day it is just hair. Worry about what’s coming out of your head and let the next person worry about their own.

      • Yep it’s just hair…..so am I wrong to say that Beyonce prefers weave than her own hair??…is that not a fact……I am simply stating a fact……Beyonce can wear all the weaves she wants too…..it’s her money …she loves long wavy and straight hair more than her natural hair…I have no problem with that

      • How difficult can it be to have someone style your natural hair….natural hairstyles don’t need to be time consuming if it is being done by a professional…..some are time consuming like small conroes but most are not….It just don’t look as good when I do it myself

  9. Almost every day you would come across a number of
    car accident news in the newspapers. Building from scratch can raise the cost significantly especially if the restaurant is a franchise where specific building requirements must be
    followed. The other thing that I encourage people to do is, when
    they’re meeting with a client, ask the attorney, “What is the extent of your involvement going to be on my case.

  10. I’m sure Blue’s hand gesture is to the wild animals. Just what every two year old appreciates … snarling, stinky animals. LOL

  11. Why are people so concerns with how someone else wears their hair. Beyoncé has never worn her real hair since being in the industry. She has had braids and rocked a fro for the movie where she played cleopatra jones. My point is stop worrying about what makes someone else feel confident and beautiful. You want an artist with natural hair go see india arie. But it’s sas when people feel they can tell someone to change what makes them confident and happy. I am a natural curly girl to the bone and embrace my hair but how date I keep suggesting someone else wear their hair the same!

    • Thank you….you gave a very good response….she thinks braids and weaves are more beautifful than her natural hair and I have no problem with that….I was just wondering……

      • I’m 100% natural, but if I was in the industry I would not be rocking my real hair. Do you know how much damage these celebs would cause their hair if they decided to rock it out? Always having to flat iron and curl and change it up. I’d rather wear a weave and let the weave be manipulated. This is why it’s very rare to see a celeb rocking their real hair. It’s not only Beyonce.

        • Why would they need to flat iron and curl their natural hair??…what is wrong with our natural hair styles….you are helping me to make my point……..show them that there is nothing wrong with wearing your hair natural……..that is why they don’t accept black people’s hair and blacks are forced to conform to their standards

        • Why would any black entertainer NEED TO CHANGE their hair…what is wrong with our natual hairstyles….is it not good enough for white America?

          • And to add to this Beyonce is her own boss…she works for no one…she is a singer….so who tells her that she need to straighten and curl her natural hair?? No one……she thinks it is pretier…more marketable to her fans….

          • Well speaking from experience of having natural hair, it’s easier to put in weaves than to have to do my hair. I can understand why people do it. Millionaire or not.
            I was natural for most of my life, permed for about 5 years and went back to being natural. None of it is as easy to maintain as fake hair.

            Anyway, I’m not someone with a perm condemning the next person for having a perm. I don’t care how anyone does their hair. Hair is personal.

  12. Blue is so thru w/ somebody lmao. She & her daddy got the expression like “I don’t got the time…” Hahah she is so adorable! She is all Jigga Jr

    I think her hair looks cute. It looks like it was actually done lol. Her curls are popping! Go head Blue

    That place sounds like fun! I wanna go lol….if I was rich I would shut things down lol

  13. There are many black women who wear their natural hair in a braid out style like blue ivy’s …their hair just look neater so y don’t Beyonce wear her hair in a natual braid out style too….is she ashamed of her hair…..?

    • Are you ashamed of your hair? I mean below you did say you have a relaxer. So what’s the difference w/ Beyoncé hair? She can wear her hair however she wants. Not all black women have to be natural & not all black people need to wear a relaxer. It’s a personal choice smh

      • I already gave the reasons….I am retarded when it comes to styling hair…..I can’t style ther peoples hair and trying to style mine is a pain and time consuming and I have naturally long hair…..but if I could afford to visit a hair salon ay least twice a week I would wear my hair natural….I need to wash my hair at least 3 times a week

        • You are all over the place w/ your comments lmao. You make no sense & is contradicting yourself. Just stop lol

      • I can’t style my natural hair…….it’s too difficult for me…if I could afford to visit the hair salon frewuently…I would wear my hair natural

        • NATURAL HAIR IS THE EASIEST TO STYLE. YOU CAN JUST WAKE UP, PUT WATER IN IT, OIL AND GO. IT DOESNT MATTER IF IT’S KINKY OR CURLY. THE PROBLEM IS THAT YOU THINK THAT YOUR NATURAL HAIR IS A PROBLEM! ONCE YOU ACCEPT AND LOVE IT THEN IT BECOMES VERY EASY TO MANAGE. GOD MADE IT THAT WAY FOR A REASON. I HAVE KINKY HAIR ALL THE WAY DOWN MY BACK AND SOMETIMES I JUST WAKE UP AND ROCK THE FRO. IT IS THE MOST SIMPLE TYPE OF HAIR.

    • I doubt that they’d be able to peacefully enjoy it though. They can’t even leave their house without the paps following them and in an amusement park you can forget it when it comes to fans and just casual bystanders that want a shot. Even if they weren’t approached, they wouldn’t be able to safely navigate the crowds with a curious 2 year old. If I had the money I would shut it down too if it ensure my peace of mind and the security of my child’s ability to enjoy their birthday.

    • No one seems to complain when other celebs do it. In fact it rarely gets reported. It is sad when people don’t want to see their own get equal treatment.

  14. Beyone wear your natural hair like your daughter….btw is Beyonce natural hair curly or is it kinky like her daughter.s hair

      • BEYONCE’S HAIR IS NOT CURLY. IT IS KINKY. HAVEN’T YOU SEEN HER SISTER’S NATURAL HAIR? IT IS KINKY. GORGEOUS AND KINKY.

        • What does Solange’s hair have to do with Beyonce’s though? Siblings don’t always have the same hair. Just like they don’t have the same complexion, height, etc…

          • I HAVE SEEN BEYONCES NATURAL HAIR AND IT LOOKS LIKE HER SISTER’S HAIR. THATS MY POINT. PEOPLE NEED TO GET OVER THIS NATURAL HAIR STUFF AND RECOGNIZE THAT NATURAL HAIR IS BEAUTIFUL!

        • You are lying. All pictures from Beyonce’s childhood show that she had looser and longer hair than her sister (and even Blue) before she got a relaxer. Just stop.

          • @T,
            YOU ARE INSANE AND RUDE FOR CALLING ME A THAT. I AM NOT LYING. I SAW A PICTURE OF BEYONCE WITH HER NATURAL HAIR AS A CHILD AND SHE HAD KINKY HAIR. IT WAS NOT LOOSER UNTIL SHE GOT A RELAXER. SHE HAS ALWAYS HAD KINKY HAIR. GO DO SOME RESEARCH INSTEAD OF CALLING PEOPLE NAMES. I WILL SAY IT AGAIN AND AGAIN, NATURAL HAIR IS GORGEOUS NO MATTER WHAT TEXTURE IT IS. BLUE HAS THE SAME HAIR AS HER AUNT AND MOTHER. SO DEAL WITH IT. NEXT!

          • OH AND BY THE WAY, BEYONCE HAS NEVER HAD LONG HAIR. IT WAS TOUCHING HER SHOULDERS. MY NATURAL HAIR REACHES MY LOW BACK AREA. NOW THAT’S LONG HAIR.
