Of the myriad of talking points, perhaps the most intrigue has centered around the identity of “Becky with the good hair.”
Well… ‘Becky’ allegedly outed herself shortly after the airing of Beyoncè’s HBO special in an instagram post and when the Beyhive found out, it was LIGHTS OUT for designer, Rachel Roy!

Queen B embarked on a visual journey, with themes that confronted racial tension, gender politics and the betrayal of infidelity.
In regards to the latter, Beyonce’s lyrics took fans through the mind of a woman whose partner has cheated on her. She transitions from suspicion, to anger and finally resolution.
It’s unclear whether Beyoncé is singing autobiographically or assuming the voice of a fictional character but in one line she says: “He only want me when I’m not on there / He better call Becky with the good hair.”
As Fans speculated on WHO Beyonce was referring to as the home wrecker (aka ‘Becky’), designer Rachel Roy decided to throw a bit of shade with the following social media post (that has since been deleted).
“Good hair don’t care, but we will take good lighting, for selfies, or self truths always,” the post said before being deleted.
Just FYI, Roy’s name has been thrown about as the catalyst to the legendary beatdown Jay-Z received in that elevator by his sister in-law, Solange.
The designer’s Instagram account was subsequently made private following a torrent of abuse and she issued the following statement claiming to be bullied by Beyonce’s legion of fans.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch… Beyonce’ s album was released immediately following the airing of her ‘Lemonade’ special and is available exclusively on Tidal, the music streaming service owned by her husband, Jay Z (who also appeared in the video during the ‘resolution’ segment).
