BeyHive Back Off! Rachel Roy says She’s Not “Becky with the Good Hair”



Rachel Roy_Jay Z and Beyonce_Lemonade

Lemonade, Beyonce‘s new visual album is still trending mainly because of speculated infidelity in the singer’s marriage to Jay Z.

Now, one of the women at the centre of the storm, designer Rachel Roy has spoken out.

The now deleted Instagram post

The now deleted Instagram post

In a statement released to People Magazine today, she said;

“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.”

Roy, 42, continued: “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,” she said.

Now that she has denied being involved with Jay Z, Bey Hive has moved on to accuse musician Rita Ora.

    In the context in which it was used, “Becky with the good hair” could mean anything e.g Black successful men/young professionals leaving their long suffering black wives for white girls/women. Men leaving their partners for better looking ones??? Why is this generating so much heat?

    If Halle Berry could get Cheat on a million times then Beyonce can be cheated on too.
    But i thought hers was different cos at end of the day – she gave chance to UGLY (camel) so he dares not cheat. That will be very painful . When you settle and try to “manage” with ugly and they cheat on you. I am not Beyonce and it hurts 🙂

    Princess Diana was cheated on with the ugliest heffa in the whole of England. You wonder how does the male brain function.

    So i ask yall – do you agree with Caroline Danjumas statement now – that ALL men cheat. I didnt before but am kinda leaning towards it 🙂 – i mean “if it is presented to them, that is.

      Why are you calling someone “Ugly”???? It isn’t right.

      All Men don’t cheat, it is impossible mathematically for all Men to cheat. That statement is wrong because if just one man out of all doesn’t cheat then it negates that statement. Bad news travels faster than good news, the good and faithful men are not normally celebrated nor talked about in the news hence what you are more likely to hear about is the bad news and to draw conclusions from that.

      P.S Not all men cheat.

      Beauty is only skin deep.

      The word ugly can be relative. I don’t think Jay Z is ugly. He has the freshest skin ever and he actually looks better in person.

      Prince Charles ugly? You need to define ugly, please. That Charlie went back to Camilla explains his sham of a marriage to Diana.

      Not all men cheat.

      She did not call Prince Charles Ugly
      She was referring to Camila

      Princess Diana’s is not the same thing.. princess Diana was never inlove with prince Charles.. and vice versa….infact she cheated aswell….. It doesn’t end well when one is forced to marry the person he/she doesn’t love..

    personally I feel like Usher Did with Confession Album (and many fools fell for it) – Beyonce is simply being smart and insinuating stuff to get people talking and to get the album.

    I feel yes they went through some rough times like every other marriage, but they are in a good place now. So No they are not divorcing as many WISH they do.

    Smart Marketing Move.

    Again, all men do not cheat. Even if it was thrown in their face. No amount of beauty or sexiness will be able to stop a would be cheater from cheating tho. These men prove it time and time again. But I know men that are married to very average women by the world’s standard and have resolved never to cheat. It’s about the value you place on your woman, it has nothing to do with physical beauty.

    Seriously if Beyonce’s marriage is your problem then you definitely do not have a life! Get a life, get busy, make your own damn money! geese how do you people go about drinking pandol on top another person’s headache like this? Since this release of her’s, we have not heard anything else. Whoever fed people with the lie that her marriage is problem free has done a fantastic job and deserves an award. SMH

    This was exactly what Beyonce did with her world tour last time and she made billions together with her ugly hubby, they’re still married till today and are doing it again. SHAME!

    Thanks for that comment dear. Beehive peeps are just jobless mbok. Beyonce has never acknowledged or encouraged them or even shouted out to them. She doesn’t care if they die or exist. She is simply milking the rumors of cheating to make money for her album. All they care about is sales. Two years ago she was dancing and doing ‘drunk in love’ with Jay-Z. Selling the idea of a perfect marriage. Was Roy not already Jay-Z’s friend then ?? If not that Solange beat him up and the video leaked, would we have known??

    So now they saw the video leaked and people knew her marriage wasn’t perfect, she decided to make lemonade. You guys need to understand how Hollywood works. It’s all about money, sales, entertainment for them. They will sell anything to get anything. Some sort of controversy or nudity has to follow all album releases. All reality shows too. Kanye did it. They all do it. You must have a story to sell. The days of talent being sufficient are long gone. To survive in a Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber world is a lot of competition. The younger ones are selling more than them. They have a team of songwriters that write songs for the artists based on their lives and generate those controversies. It’s all business and marketing.
    Abeg, where’s my chewing stick?

      “If not that Solange beat him up”

      Haba nah, Solange didn’t beat him up………..Jay’z simply didn’t retaliate……….like a gentleman.

      Beating up is stuffing the person’s mouth with san san. Haba!

    I hate when – like Rachel Roy always act like they are being Bullied
    Heffa you brought this on ya damn self. Dont be acting like you are a victim

    you did it once (after the Solange Beat Down in the Elevator with your subliminal tweet/message on your instagram talking bout beach and what not,

    and THEN you do this again 10 seconds after LEMONADE drops yet again with another Subliminal message talking about Good Hair Dont care just after you watch Beyonce sing her lyrics about Becky With Good Hair. What did you expect us Beehives to do – you instantly deleted it but guess what we were already on ya page 10 minutes before HBO Lemonade begun so we screen captured ya slow ass before you deleted the post

    You have the nerve

    I wish all SIDE CHICKS will be erased from the phase of the earth. To all Side Chicks you are cursed 10 generations trying to break a happy home

    and Camel just like your wife said – you got one more time to fck up – One more time. > there are Beehives everywhere so dont try to hide – we will know.

    If he tries it again just leave blackmen for good. Most White men will treat you better.

    So Beyonce sang about her man cheating on her with a Becky with good hair, Rachel took it upon herself to infer that she is the Becky with good hair in that first Instagram post and she’s surprised that Beyonce’s blind followers are attacking her.
    Could it be that Beyonce is just simply singing a the song has nothing to do with her life and this girl just put her mouth in a non issue.
    At the end o the day Beyonce cannot help the way people react to her music. People can decide to make her abstract art come come life by branding themselves as home breakers.
    Rachel should have just listed to the music and kept it moving like a normal person. The song was not about you but you choose to make it about now sit back and enjoy all that comes with it.

    So the cheated upon wife writes a song, somehow names the mistress, releases this song on her cheating husband’s streaming service, gets all tongues wagging, fans/bees/sheep running helter skelter to listen to this song, creating a BUZZ, Thereby generating more money for herself and this cheating spouse.
    All na hype for publicity and record sales. If she’s so pissed why did she not divorce his cheating a$$? Or at best, hurt him financially by releasing her music elsewhere, Shebi the bees/fans/sheep will buy it on any platform.

      Thank you KB. She even released the album exclusively on cheating husband’s app, Tidal. She would have spited him by releasing on Apple or someplace else naa. Jay controls her, and manages her, he clearly has nothing to lose.
      Hahhahahahahahaha. It’s all about money, money and more money for this people. Forget all that networth ish. They spend a lot, have a lot of staff on their payroll so they have to constantly sell albums and go on tours to survive. You would think that ‘billion dollars on the elevator’ couple has enough money and should retire but they can’t.They can’t back out from their contracts. Their souls are sold. She needs to sell that story cos she needs tickets to sell for her tour.

    These are the times i would love to see KIM K.W in the news for any reason at all , not that i am a fan but this beyonce and her beehives thing is enough already!
    people probably knows that all these publicity is a Push-up for her album sales. She may be referring to the times her dad cheated on her mum for all we care, even if jay-z cheated on her as claimed, she forgave, moved on and turn the experience to HIT.
    Beehives attacking Rachael Ray( the chef on food network) was totally off it, as it shows the kind of stans she has. Now its RITA ORA,who is also part of the whole game, wearing lemonade bra days before the song was debuted and also seen wearing the same Gucci outfit that beyonce wore in the video just goes to show that it was all planned.who are they deceiving?

    pls before beehives naija and diaspora chapter come and build IDP camps under my comment. i do not have time for you or una mama!
