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.
Yep, the Carters paid to have the park closed for this superspecial occasion.
So far, there's no word on the exact price of privately frolicking among Jungle Island's lions, lemurs, parrots, capuchin monkeys, pot-bellied pigs, and other exotic animal attractions.
But as Jay Z told us during last week's SoFla stop of the Magna Carter World Tour: "What's $50,000 to a motherfucker like me?"
Over the past couple of weeks, before and after the MCWT concert, Daddy and Mommy Carter have been cropping up all over Miami.
Just before New Year's, they scoped out Wynwood and grabbed some grub at Joey's Italian Café.
Then earlier this week, they bumrushed the mic and surprised a group of strangers at South Beach's Sing Sing Karaoke.
And in between those two grown-up outings, Jay, Bey, and baby Blue spent a magical afternoon, touring Jake & Hanna's Orangutan Penthouse and woohoo-ing through Dr. Wasabi's Wild Adventures.

But without an invite or a squirrel monkey spy on the inside, how do we know little Miss Blue Carter's b-day was fairy tale-level amazing?
Because Jungle Island is the kind of place where Siberian tigers and chimps become BFFs for life.
