Beyoncé’s new album Lemonade has everyone talking, some saying the lyrics to multiple songs seem to call out the “Formation” singer’s husband Jay Z for cheating.
“Sorry” is just one track that has been causing a lot of debate. The lyrics address a cheating lover, saying, “He only want me when I’m not there / He better call Becky with the good hair.” This left the Beyhive wondering, who is Becky?
Rachel Roy, who was married to Jay Z’s former business partner and manager Damon Dash from 2005 to 2009, quickly put a target on her own back. The designer posted an Instagram photo the same night Bey’s album was released with a suspicious caption.
“Good hair don’t care, but we will take good lighting, for selfies, or self truths, always,” Roy wrote on Instagram. “Live in the light #NoDramaQueens.”
Unfortunately for Roy, the Beygency sees everything. Fans spotted the pic and read into Roy’s “Good hair don’t care” comment. Was Roy admitting that she’s “Becky with the good hair?”
Roy was previously connected to Beyoncé back in 2014 after the infamous elevator fight between Bey’s sister and Jay Z. According to US Weekly, Solange Knowles yelled at Roy before she got into a fight with Jay Z at the Met Gala after party.
The Beyhive sent the troops in on Roy. She promptly deleted the photo and made her Instagram private.
However, some fans were confused. They wrongly assumed “Roy” was just a typo, thinking the real Becky was talk show host and famous chef Rachael Ray. Yes, we’re actually serious.
Fans flocked to Ray’s Instagram, leaving nasty comments on her photo… of a pulled beef chili sandwich.
The photo now has more than 2,000 comments, some calling Ray a “home wrecker” or asking her “how to make a side hoe salad with lemons.” Other Instagram users claimed, “We know you Becky with the good hair,” and the “Beyhive is coming for you.”
Fans were also quick to bring up Ray’s show 30 Minute Meals, leaving comments like, “You got Jay Z whipped into your 30 Minute Meals huh? No way Queen’s potato salad was bad compared to yours… chef lady.”
“I used to love you. You just lost a fan and I let your husband know what you out here doing,” another Instagram user commented.
As for Roy, she also got her fair share hateful tweets and comments. She followed up her since-deleted Instagram photo with a tweet, saying, “I respect love, marriages, families and strength. What shouldn’t be tolerated by anyone, no matter what, is bullying, of any kind.”
