In case you live under a rock, Beyonce just dropped a new visual album, Lemonade. The majority of the album was aimed at Jay Z's cheating rumors. After listening to the song "Sorry" where Beyonce says "He better call Becky with the good hair," we've rounded up 16 suspects who are most likely Becky.
Rachel Roy was married to Damon Dash, Jay Z’s business partner at Roc-a-Fella Records and BFF (before they had a falling out). Right after "Lemonade" aired, she instagrammed a picture with the caption “Good hair don’t care" It's known that Beyonce has had beef with Roy since Beyonce posted a picture of herself wearing a t-shirt with Aaliyah’s face on it, who chose Damon Dash over Jay Z before she died in 2001. Roy has received much backlash from the Beyhive since "Lemonade" dropped.
Rumors about Jay Z and Rita Ora first started in 2013 after reports came out that Rita had slept with Jay Z for a deal with his record label. In a radio interview she said, “Don’t you dare disrespect Beyonce like that ever again in your entire life…you can’t even go there.” Why was Rita so worked up about these affair rumors? Seems to us that someone that angry has something to hide. Earlier this year Rita tried to end her contract early with Jay Z's label. Wonder why she tried to do that?!
Rita posted a snapchat of herself wearing a lemon bra on Saturday after the Lemonade special first aired AND she was wearing a necklace with the letter “J” on it. Then on Monday Rita stepped out wearing the exact same red-printed Gucci dress that Beyonce wore in her “Formation” video. Rita is definitely trying to tell us something and it’s that SHE IS BECKY.
In 2005, rumors about a secret romance between Jay Z and Rihanna started to circulate. While author J. Randy Taraborrelli claimed the rumors served the sole purpose to increase Rihanna’s popularity, Beyonce didn’t buy it. In 2006, Beyonce released a solo album with two songs about cheating, allegedly aimed at Rihanna.
After a tumblr post went viral, featuring a picture of young Taylor Swift mistaken for a girl named Becky, Taylor decided to get in on the action. In 2014 she wore a shirt that said, “no its Becky.” Is Taylor admitting that she is Becky? She does have good hair...
Roy? Or Ray? The Beyhive attacked Rachel Ray after confusing her name with fashion designer, Rachel Roy. After receiving a lot of harassment from Bey fans, Rachel Ray posted her famous lemonade recipe on Instagram. Coincidence? You decide.
The rapper and model told Radar that she had a connection with Jay Z in 2013. “One of his bodyguards approached me and said, ‘Jay wants your number. He’s gonna call you when he’s back in town." In 2014 Liv released a song, “Sorry Mrs Carter" and starts the song out with the lyrics “What up Jay." She then goes on to deny any affair rumors by saying “Side chick, never, mistress who?” Our question is, why did she feel the need to entertain the matter more with such a shade-throwing song?
Remember the elevator attack in 2014 after the Met Gala? Allegedly, it was because Solange saw Jay Z flirting with Roy, but we think there's more behind it. In 2013 Solange got angry at Jay Z for asking Liv for her number. Jealous much? One day after the elevator incident, Jay and Solange were spotted shopping for jewelry together. Clearly, they're secret lovers.
How do we know it’s not one of Beyonce’s alter egos? Plot twist.
Loughlin, who played Becky Katsopolis in "Full House," made it clear that she is not "Becky with good hair” by posting an Instagram of herself in character with some mighty fine hair. In fact, her hair looks so amazing that we’re starting to wonder how it could be anyone but her who Beyonce is singing about.
Remember Sir Mix-A-Lot’s song “Baby Got Back?” Of course you do. In 2014, Sir Mix-A-Lot revealed that he received the inspiration for the song after watching Jennifer Lopez on an episode of “In Living Color." The song opens with “ Oh my god Becky look at her butt," which means that J Lo's butt is Becky.
Stephen Colbert explained exactly who Becky is on his show Monday night. “Now you might think Becky is the actual name of the woman, but it turns out that is just a slang term for a kind of valley-girl type.” Colbert’s explanation only leaves us with the obvious answer of Cher from the movie Clueless—THE ULTIMATE VALLEY GIRL. (She also wears a yellow plaid outfit, a lesser known inspiration for the title Lemonade.)
Everyone knows that Tidal is Jay Z's favorite thing in the world, which means there's a real possibility that Tidal is actually Becky.
Rebecca Black’s one hit wonder, “Friday” was released in 2011, two years before Beyonce and Jay Z’s marriage started to shake. Everyone forgot about her, but we think she is the real black horse. She tried to slip away, but we’re not letting this go. We’re ready for your new hit single, Becky Black.
Good hair, ‘nough said.
Everyone knows that Jay and Baracky are tight. Sorry, did we say Baracky? We meant Becky.
A few days after Lemonade aired, Iggy Azalea tweeted “Don’t ever call me a becky.” Girl, no one did. Stay out of this.
