Beyonce’s “Lemonade” certainly has the world talking; with its theme of a scorned woman after being cheated on by her husband, some think the message is that of artistic expression of how Beyonce felt in her rumored “rocky” marriage to Jay Z.
During the hour-long visual album, Beyoncé sings these lyrics on her song “Sorry”: “He only want me when I’m not there. He better call Becky with the good hair.”
Since “Lemonade” seems like it was inspired by real-life events, the lyric prompted the question from many: so who’s this “Becky with good hair?”
Soon after that part of the visual, fashion designer Rachel Roy (who is the ex-wife of Jay Z’s former business partner Dame Dash, and also rumored to be Jay Z’s lover) took to Instagram to write, “Good hair don’t care, but we will take good lighting, for selfies, or self truths, always. Live in the light #nodramaqueens,” Roy added.
Soon after people got wind of her tweet and began replying with things like, “I think we found Becky!’’ and “Becky’s gonna have her hair and the whole career gone,” Roy quickly changed her Instagram account to private.
But then took to Twitter to take on the online “bullies,” with the tweet, “I respect love, marriages, families and strength. What shouldn’t be tolerated by anyone, no matter what, is bullying, of any kind.”
While some people believe Beyonce’s cheating theme in “Lemonade” is nothing more than a publicity stunt to harp on the marriage-trouble rumors to boost sales, the rumors that Roy has been creeping with Jay have been around for a long time, and is the speculation behind why Beyonce’s sister Solange’s blew up at Jay in the infamous elevator footage from 2014.
However, and a source who knows Roy told The Post that the designer may have just been seeking attention. “She loves the attention and being in the headlines. I’m not surprised she would jump on this, especially after [what happened after] The Met,’’ the source said. “It’s embarrassing, but Rachel loves press.”
In a somewhat humorous twist of events, angry Beyonce fans began to bash Rachel, only….it was the wrong Rachel. Fans descended on TV personality and food connoisseur Rachel Ray’s Instagram page. Some Beyhive members left menacing threats alongside Ray’s photos of delicious meals with mesaages liek “You can cook, but you can’t hide,” and “Oh I loved hot chicken fajitas but I will never make them again after what you did you did to the Queen.” LOL! Ooops!
Anyways, could there be a little bit of truth to all of this? What do you think, Roomies?
