Beyonce Fans Think They’ve Found The Infamous ‘Becky With The Good Hair’ From Her Lemonade Album
Beware the wrath of the Beyhive.
If you were hoping for a weekend of productivity, then you probably aren’t too happy with Beyonce for dropping her brand new album slap-bang in the middle of it.
On Saturday night, Lemonade premiered on HBO over in the US, and was then made available on TIDAL – leaving us re-subscribing like crazy (and cursing ourselves for using up our free trial on Kanye).
With 12 tracks and an entire short film, Beyonce’s new project is absolutely incredible, but besides the amazing music, fans have been putting their detective hats firmly on to try and suss out what all these cheating references on the album mean.
Yep, it turns out a lot of Lemonade focuses on Jay Z potentially being unfaithful to Bey, with a LOT of damning lyrics to go with it.
It’s the song Sorry that has the Beyhive up in arms most, where Beyonce sings: “He only want me when I'm not on there / He better call Becky with the good hair.”
Well, it took all of HOURS for fans to track down the Becky she might be referring to, and it’s none other than fashion designer Rachel Roy.
Not long after Lemonade hit TIDAL, Rachel (who’s the ex wife of Jay Z’s former business partner) Instagrammed this picture with a VERY suspicious caption.
She wrote: “Good hair don’t care, but we will take good lighting, for selfies, or self truths, always. Live in the light #nodramaqueens.”
Naturally, ever since Rachel got sassy, the Beyhive have been flooding her comments section with a lot of bee and lemon emojis – so many in fact that she’s now made her Instagram private.
While she hasn’t directly spoken out on the controversy, Rachel then tweeted: “I respect love, marriages, families and strength.
“What shouldn't be tolerated by anyone, no matter what, is bullying, of any kind.”
Main lesson of the day: don’t expect to shade Queen Bey and get away with it.
