Lemonade Honored with a Peabody Award


Beyonce's critically acclaimed visual album Lemonade receives the prestigious Peabody Award...


From Peabody Awards
"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."

FX series Atlanta  also won a Peabody this year.

Congratulations to Beyonce for her award. The only issue I have with this is line: "masterpiece about the lives of women of color and the bonds of friendship seldom seen or heard in American popular culture"
NOTHING about that movie, Beyonce's life or her album represents my life as a woman of color.
Why do they always try and lump us together as one and why do we go along with it?

Chrissy, you clearly missed the point. And your congraulation is backhanded. You could have kept scrolling. Congratulation Beyonce on a job well done

No, YOU missed the point. I stand by my original comment.
You will not dictate to me what I should and shouldn't say around here. Have a wonderful day.

Chrissy Snow, you are a woman of color but are you Black? Not one Black female I know didn't connect with that album in some way or another. That's why I wonder if you are Black or just a woman of color because there is a difference you know.

Lmao

I am a Black woman so sheath your claws. The article stated women of color and I repeated it.
You guys think I am critiquing Beyonce’s project and I’m not. My issue is with the second quote in the article.

Sorry, I'm too cynical to connect to anything a celebrity says or does. Corporate albums playing on the emotional insecurities of certain groups do nothing for me.

10:38 Lemonade only sold about 3 million copies worldwide so obviously not every black person connected with that album or it would of sold more. I loved the visuals but I didn't like some of the songs.

@10:38

I, in NO WAY, SHAPE, OR FORM connected with the BOREFEST known as Lemonade. And i'm a black AMERICAN woman.


As far as this award, this should make up for her grammy snubs lol....NOT.

And really, Lemonade is the standard black woman album now? So has it trumped the Miseducation? The Waiting to Exhale soundtrack? the My Life album?....

I am 100% black female and I did not connect with that album at all nor did ANY of my friends and family

Another purchased accolade.

Beyonce's album was mediocre and another budget buster which did not break even.
She has not removed an inch off her debt to the label.
All the noise that was made about lemonade was paid for. Sorry but Beyonce hasn't earned an award in about 10 years.

And a lawsuit/ settlement expenses to boot

Another bought award to make her feel better after losing to Adele at the Grammy's. She should be thanking Kanye for stealing his idea about a visual album. And also thanking the other artists she's stolen work and ideas from.

As far as this album being about the african american culture how is that coming from a woman who downplays her roots. Remember the loreal ads. Isn't she creole? Now catch that shade

the album was just OK, there isn't anyone else to give an award to so she gets it ? Slow production year...

It came..it went and now it's gone. But just like all things Beyawnce, she's gonna try to squeeze every bit of lemon juice from that album. Scrapping the lemon skins and grinding down the seeds, too. She's gonna make sure it's talked about, given awards and played to death until she returns to the scene. Nobody runs shit down to the ground like this heffa.
