    “That Road Can Be Very Bumpy”: Beyonce Reflects On Her Struggles In The Music Industry

    Queen Beyonce took the stage during the iHeart Radio Music Awards as she accepted the award for Innovator of the Year, days after releasing her album Cowboy Carter, making the entire town talk with a genre shift and a perfect attempt at country music.

    Accepting the award from multiple Grammy winner Stevie Wonder, she talked about her struggles as a musician in the industry, by saying, “Innovation starts with a dream, but then you have to execute that dream and that road can be very bumpy. Being an innovator is seeing what everyone believes is impossible. Being an innovator often means being criticized, which, often, will test your mental strength.”
