The name Rachel Roy has been on the tip of America’s tongue ever since we all thought she voluntarily outed herself as “Becky with the good hair,” a mistress Beyonce sings about on her new visual album Lemonade.
Shortly after the project’s release, the fashion designer and ex-wife to Damon Dash referenced the fourth track, “Sorry,” on which Bey dismisses a fictional, cheating husband. Things got real when Rachel posted a photo of herself laughing with a friend and added the caption, “Good hair don’t care, but we will take good lighting, for selfies. or self truths, always. live in the light #nodramaqueens.”
Suddenly, we all remembered those old rumors that Rachel hovering over Jay Z is what started the infamous 2014 Met Gala elevator incident. Was Bey referencing a real situation on “Sorry?”
We’d rather not acknowledge anyone who hasn’t heard Lemonade at this point, but for those living under a rock, Bey sings, “He only want me when I’m not on there. He better call Becky with the good hair.”
Now, Rachel Roy explicitly states that she isn’t Becky. From PEOPLE:
“I want to put the speculation and rumors to rest. My Instagram post was meant to be fun and lighthearted, it was misunderstood as something other than that,” she said. “There is no validity to the idea that the song references me personally. There is no truth to the rumors. Consequently, online haters have targeted me and my daughters in a hurtful and scary manner, including physical threats. As a mother – and I know many mothers would agree – I feel that bullying in any form is harmful and unacceptable. I would hope that the media sees the real issue here – the issue of cyber bullying – and how it should not be tolerated by anyone.”
Bey hasn’t said a word to save
