Blue Ivy Carter‘s boss persona lives on.

The 6-year-old daughter of Beyoncé and Jay-Z is on a family trip to France at the moment, and isn’t shy about sharing her social media opinions. When Tina Lawson snuck her phone out at the Paris Ballet to grab a quick video of  the room before the audience started pouring in, Blue had no problem reminding her grandma about the building’s no phone policy.

In an Instagram video Thursday, Lawson quietly says, “I’m in Paris, France, and I’m at the most beautiful theater I’ve ever seen in my life.” As she low-key pans her phone around the room to show the gold-painted ceilings and red velvet chairs, you can hear Blue’s voice in the background gently admonishing her.

“You’re not supposed to take videos, Grandma! You’re not supposed to,” she said.

Earlier this year, Blue iconically told her mother to tone it down at the Grammys, launching a million memes and reaction GIFs.
