It’s been over a year since Beyonce gave us one of the most controversial lyrics of all time via the ‘Lemonade’ track ‘Sorry’ — but now that Amber Rose has stirred the pot, the question of who ‘Becky’ is is on our minds once again. We’ve rounded up all of the possibilities right here!
Beyonce, 35, couldn’t have known that “Becky with the good hair” would be the lyric to launch a thousand fan theories, but indeed, it went on to become one of the most contentious lines to ever occur in a song. Sure, in the past few months it’s been rather quiet on the Becky front…until Amber Rose, 33, blasted out a declaration that she’s “Becky with the short hair” on May 17 (she’s since deleted the tweet, but you can see it below.) Whether you believe Amber was hacked or not, one thing’s for sure: she reminded us that it’s still fun to speculate as to who Becky is!
In the year since “Sorry” debuted, tons of celebs have been accused of being the unnamed mistress mentioned in the song. The most famous example is Rachel Roy, a designer who has a long history with Jay Z. Rita Ora, 26, is a close second, as fans discovered an old photo of her posting in a lemon-printed bra and a necklace featuring the letter “J.” Finally, one of the wilder theories is that Kris Jenner, 61, is Becky. Bey’s hairstylist Anthony Pazos said as much in an interview! “Kris does have good hair and ‘Becky’ always refers to a white woman in the African American community. Becky is a generic white name for somebody — a white girl,” he explained. Hmm. Anyway, you can click through our gallery to see pics of all the potential “Beckys!”
