Jay-Z: Yep, Blue Ivy'll probably be spoiled

With a Billboard record already under her infant belt, it's not a surprise Blue Ivy will be familiar with the finer things in life.

In fact, her dad Jay-Z recently admitted that his firstborn will probably be the “worst, spoiled little kid ever” on “Oprah’s Master Class: Special Edition," which aired Sunday.

Both Jay-Z and mom Beyonce are mega-successful, and then there's the fact that Blue Ivy's also an only child.

To help keep her grounded, Jay said he’ll take what he gleaned from his own family upbringing and add it to his parenting repertoire.

"I imagine I'll take things I learned from my mom and things I've learned from raising my nephews and apply that,” he said on the show.

You’ve also got to enjoy kids while they’re young, because the good vibes between parent and child don’t necessarily last forever, he added.

"Everyone imagines they'll be a great dad until their [kids are] teenagers," he said. "[They say], 'Get away from me, Dad. You're embarrassing me."

Jay was joined by stars like Jon Bon Jovi, Diane Sawyer and Reba McEntire, who also shared their insights on life on the show.

    You think? You already bought the brat a 75k rocking horse that could have fed everyone in Marcy Projects which you talk about all the time... Stop supplying this foolish demand. Stop making idiots rich as we have to work our rear-ends off every day. I wish them all the best but to those defending every action of this couple–do they put food on your table?

    I hope this is just talk for the media. DO NOT SPOIL THIS CHILD. That can backfire. As the old saying goes, "a child can bring your tears of joy but if you spoil him/her, that child can bring you tears of PAIN".

      Lou Cypher, I doubt she will end up on the "back page" and urmomlol her name is no more "retarded" than other celebrities kids' names, just like Rob Morrow’s daughter, TU MORROW;or Gwen Stefani’s son, ZUMA NESTA ROCK; or Penn Jillette’s daughter MOXIE CRIMEFIGHTER; or Jason Lee’s son, PILOT INSPEKTOR; or Nicolas Cage’s son, KAL-EL; or Bob Geldof and Paula Yates’ daughters, PEACHES HONEYBLOSSOM and PIXIE; or Shannyn Sossamon’s son, AUDIO SCIENCE; or Gwyneth Paltrow’s daughter APPLE; or Sylvester Stallone’s son SAGE MOONBLOOD; David Duchovny and Tea Leoni’s son KYD, Blue Ivy really has a weird name.

    Great. Just what the world needs. Another "strong" black woman (i.e. who thinks her sh** don't stink).

    Yes, spoil this child because this world needs more rotten, spoiled, arrogant, stuck-up people than it already has right now...teaching this child good values no doubt.
