Beyoncé is the Queen of life and her album, Lemonade, which has set the world ablaze, has officially won a Peabody Award.
The Peabody committee said,
“Lemonade draws from the prolific literary, musical, cinematic, and aesthetic sensibilities of black cultural producers to create a rich tapestry of poetic innovation. The audacity of its reach and fierceness of its vision challenges our cultural imagination, while crafting a stunning and sublime masterpiece about the lives of women of color and the bonds of friendship seldom seen or heard in American popular culture.”
Other titles that have won the award this year are FX’s Atlanta, FX’s Better Things, BBC One’s Happy Valley, Louis C.K.’s independently-released Horace and Pete, Channel 4’s National Treasure, and HBO’s Veep.
