The queen bee herself is one of the biggest role models for any woman. One of the members of Destiny’s Child who had an even more successful career going solo, Beyoncé is the definition of hard work and continuously striving for perfection.
She is so amazingly successful that she is a true icon in the music industry, with just about everyone around the world knowing her name and her career accolades. What I love most about her is that she is just as successful as any other man in the music industry, which is hard to say for a lot of women artists who are often viewed as being less prominent than their male counterparts.
Not only is being a woman and having the success that Beyoncé has so amazing, but the fact that she is also a black woman doing all of this is just mind-blowing to me. The black cultural flair she adds to most of her music is so great for the black community, which is something we need a lot more of in today’s society.
While I’m at it, I’ll just say that I was so upset when Adele won Album of the Year at the 2017 Grammys over Beyoncé and her “Lemonade” album. That was truly a travesty, and only further shows how the music industry (and Hollywood in general) are so biased towards white people. But despite all of that adversity, Beyoncé still makes an amazing name for herself and the black community that she represents, not to mention women everywhere as well.
Beyoncé is also great for who she married. Jay-Z is a successful music producer, although he is arguably not that attractive. However, Beyoncé married him for love and not for superficial attributes associated with him. That takes a lot of guts, especially for someone as prominent as Beyoncé.
Keep in mind that she could have had just about anyone she wanted, but she chose Jay-Z (this is not to say that Jay-Z is a bad choice, but there were definitely “better” options out there). I totally respect Beyoncé for that, and it inspires me to find someone I truly love, and to marry them rather than someone else for other superficial reasons.
When it all comes down to it, the way Beyoncé holds herself, not only in the music industry and her professional life, but also in her personal life, is the way that I want to live. And that is the case for just about every other woman in the world who knows anything about Beyoncé.
I truly believe she is the epitome of perfect, because there is literally nothing that she does that can be viewed as negative. No negative press, no family issues, and simply nothing to make you think badly of her. If you have daughters, of any age, and of any ethnicity, you would be wise to use Beyoncé as a role model. Your daughter will grow up to be a hardworking, good and kind individual who values family, just like the Queen Bee herself!
