We Finally Know Who 'Becky With The Good Hair' Is In Beyoncé's Song
Three months ago, Beyoncé sent white girls everywhere into crisis as we all asked ourselves one question: "Am I Becky with the good hair?"
The lyric from her song "Sorry," off her new album Lemonade, goes like this:
He only want me when I'm not there / He better call Becky with the good hair
In other words, Jay Z is cheating on his gorgeous, talented wife with this Becky girl. But who is Becky?
Rumors were flying every which way, with some people claiming to know the true Becky, but no one providing any proof.
Now, thanks to the song's main writer Diana Gordon, we finally know the truth. The real Becky is.... *drumroll* ... NOBODY!
That's right, folks. Becky with the good hair is merely a symbolic representation of white girl side chicks everywhere!
Diana talked to Entertainment Weekly about the public's reaction to that Becky lyric, saying,
I laughed, like this is so silly. Where are we living? I was like, 'What day in age from that lyric do you get all of this information? Is it really telling you all that much, accusing people?'
Diana went on to say Beyoncé was caught off guard by all the crazy speculation behind the lyric.
I don't think she expected it. I saw her at her Formation tour. She had a pajama party; we laughed, we danced, we hugged it out. But I didn't say much about it at the time because I wanted to give her space.
Well, there you go, everyone! Becky isn't real!
C'mon, you guys know Queen Bey. Do you really think she would call someone out in a song like that?
Well, besides Jay Z. But he earned it.
EDIT, 3:24 pm: A previous version of this article implied Diana Gordon was talking about "Sorry" when she said, "The idea started in my mind but it's not mine anymore. It was very funny and amusing to me to watch it spread over the world." It turns out, she was actually talking about "Daddy Lessons." Our bad! Sorry, for real this time.
