Rachel Roy Confirms She’s Not “Becky With The Good Hair”
After heavy speculation that fashion designer Rachel Roy is the “Becky” referenced in Beyonce’s Lemonade song “Sorry,” Roy is refuting the claims once and for all.
She exclusively told People Magazine, “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.”
Rumors have been swirling that Roy and Bey’s hubby Jay Z had an affair in the past (see: Solange Elevator Beatdown), and “Sorry” has Beyonce telling a man (presumably Jay) to “call Becky with the good hair.”
Roy added fuel to the flame by posting an Instagram picture right after the hour-long album movie premiered, with the caption “Good hair don’t care, but we will take good lighting, for selfies, or self truths, always. Live in the light #nodramaqueens.” The Beyhive swarmed her with honeybee and lemon emojis, as well as sheer hatred, prompting Roy to make her profile private. They also hilariously attacked Rachael Ray, who just wanted to post a picture of a Sloppy Joe sandwich.
“There is no validity to the idea that the song references me personally,” Roy continued. “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.”
