Jay Z and Beyonce Shut Down Miami's Jungle Island for Daughter Blue Ivy's Second B-Day

Oh, the perks of being the Jiggaman and Queen Bey's baby girl.

At only 14 days old, Jay Z and Beyonce's daughter, Blue Ivy Carter (born January 7, 2012), became the youngest person in the history of recorded music to crack Billboard's Top 100 Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs by contributing heartbeats and screams to "Glory," a father's ode to his "child with the child from Destiny's Child."

And just the other day, Ms. Blue turned two. So Daddy and Mommy Carter threw her a big b-day party at Jungle Island. But since she's a celebribaby, they didn't just take a quiet family trip to Miami's favorite interactive zoological park. They shut that motherfucker down.
