Beyoncé is giving fans another glimpse into her private and fabulous life. The singer has posted some personal photos from three recent celebrations on her Tumblr page.

The 32-year-old superstar brought in the new year with her family at Diddy’s lavish New Year’s Eve bash at the Versace mansion in Miami. Dressed in black and yellow, Bey partied with pals including Kelly Rowland, The-Dream, and director Melina, while Jay danced with daughter Blue Ivy.

Bey and Blue put on their party hats as they counted down to 2014. After watching the fireworks, the couple rode off on a motorcycle.

Two weeks later, the Carters celebrated their daughter’s 2nd birthday by renting out a party room at the Miami Zoo. Blue and her mom wore tiaras and got their faces painted. Bey’s Destiny’s Child groupmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams also got in on the fun, sporting matching butterflies.

After expressing the hell she went through to get to the concert, the confident teen grabbed the mic and gave it her all.

“You gotta be quiet so I can rap for him. I’m tryna get signed tonight and shit,” she told the crowd before laying down some bars.
