The woman rumored to have inspired “Becky With the Good Hair” from Lemonade, Rachel Roy, reportedly “grabbed her place card” and ran the hell out of the CFDA Awards earlier this week after discovering Beyoncé Knowles was on her way in.
The New Yorker’s theater critic, Hilton Als, published a review of Beyoncé’s Formation album and tour this week titled “Beywatch.” “The truth is I wasn’t much interested in her,” he writes late in the piece, “until her sister, Solange Knowles, was caught on camera beating Jay Z’s ass in a hotel elevator in 2014.”
Jay Z has yet to respond to Beyoncé’s real-fictional cheating accusations on Lemonade, but he did say the word in a song.
Beyoncé’s liberating anthem “Formation” makes you want to scream atop your lungs in public places: “When he fuck me good, I take his ass to Red Lobster!!!” Just like this one man did. But then you might get arrested.
Remember when all we as a nation cared about was figuring out the identity of “Becky With the Good Hair,” and thousands of Beyhive members confused designer (and suspected “Becky”) Rachel Roy with celebrity cook (and non-“Becky”) Rachael Ray? You know, the good old days before Blac Chyna announced her pregnancy and…
After watching the video for Rita Wilson’s “Forgiving Me, Forgiving You” for the first time, I pulled my chair closer to my computer and clicked play again. Once it ended, I rolled even closer and listened a second time. By listen number three, my trembling body was so close to the screen that my stomach was being…
Following his wife’s dazzling new visual album which seems to document his infidelity, Jay Z is reportedly working on an album to tell his side of things. This, if true, is a very poor idea.
Two weekends ago, after Beyoncé released a mythologically forceful visual album that attached the most significant art of her career to the narrative of her husband Jay Z cheating on her with a woman she called “Becky with the good hair,” the fashion designer Rachel Roy—presumably operating of her own…
At last night’s Met Gala, potential Becky/US celebrity Rita Ora barged through the front doors of the Metropolitan Museum of Art after flashing Anna Wintour a napkin on which she scribbled “MET GALA TICKET” in red lipstick and waded through the piles of glamorous robots until finally reaching Our Lady in Latex, …
Beyoncé’s Lemonade album has inspired former music video model Karrine Steffans—famous for writing the groupie Holy Grail tell-all Confessions of a Video Vixen in 2005—to reflect on her past life as a “Becky.”
I recently flew Spirit, the most low-budget of all the budget airlines, for the first time. And though the experience wasn’t entirely miserable, I would never describe it as pleasant. The check-in process contained far too many frustrating steps, its terminal at LGA is perhaps the airport’s worst, and—because taking a…
Forgive me for leading the morning roundup of celebrity gossip with a silly item about the unpleasant behavior of a dead man, but it’s Throwback Thursday and I’ve never mentioned Peter O’Toole in Dirt Bag before, so why the hell not?
Though we were only given “confirmation” about their marital problems Saturday evening, Bey and Jay have spent years working through them. A village of sources gave E! News the rundown about how the couple is faring post-Lemonade, and the answer—in short—is, “They’re fine!” Their marriage? Fine! Their thoughts on…
Since Beyoncé dropped Lemonade Saturday night, one question has been on the mind of millions: Who is “Becky with the good hair”? Though many on the internet are convinced she’s either Rachel Roy or Rita Ora, both women have denied the allegations on social media. And if Becky’s not them, could she be... you?
To say nothing of its artistic merits, Beyoncé’s Lemonade album/visual album/film is a feat of collaboration, organization, and execution. The budget for the project is estimated to have been about $1.35 million, but when you look at the credits for the album, that almost feels low.
Though we will probably never know for certain who the now infamous “Becky with the good hair” is (is it Rita? Rachel? Someone entirely unexpected, like Geena Davis?), Rita Ora has decided to do her best to make us all think it’s her.
Rachel Roy, the designer accused of having an affair with Jay Z, fully denies being romantically linked to him in any way.
Fellow mortals, I have come across what can only be described as the Finnegan’s Wake of our time, and it is Beyoncé fan fiction.
Beyoncé’s new visual album is filled with not just tons of tea and stunning shots, but also a plethora of cameos. Here’s a quick guide to all the faces, big and small, that you need to know.
