Two years ago Beyoncé (sans baby) went to Carroll Park in Brooklyn with her husband Jay-Z and their friends Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin, just like they were normal non-famous people. IT WAS F*CKING CRAZY YOU GUYS. And now it's happened again. Yesterday the singer was spotted at JJ Byrne Playground (for those without kids, that is across from awesome drinking establishment The Gate) in Park Slope. According to Vibe, she was with her daughter Blue Ivy, and at one point she wore a balloon hat. We will admit this is kind of crazy since Blue Ivy almost definitely has at least one personal playground hidden behind some secret locked gate in her own private sixth borough of New York. Right?

Anyway, word of The Event spread when NY Times op-ed columnist Charles M. Blow Tweeted about it—his daughter had run in to the house after spotting the 31-year-old superstar doing average human stuff outside:
