Jay Z’s rumored mistress Rachel Roy was so stung by Beyoncé's loyal following (rabid fans) known as the Beyhive, she issued a statement denying she is the “Becky with the good hair” Bey references in her new song, Sorry.
"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,” the designer told People.
Fine, maybe it’s not Rachel, Roy or Ray. But someone is Becky and if we have to investigate for as long as the Earth is rotating to figure out who it is, we will. Finding Becky should actually qualify as a full time job. Here are some other possible culprits who may fit her description, even though all we have to go on right now is “good hair.”
1. Rita Ora
As of Tuesday morning, Rachel was knocked out of the number one spot by Rita. She’s posting cryptic Instagram messages and it’s not clear if she needs her attention tank filled or if she is the side piece who broke Beyoncé's heart. But she's leaving clues; one snap in particular is the official poster for the film Ash Wednesday, starring Elizabeth Taylor. The 1973 movie is about a middle-aged woman who fears she is losing her husband. Bey lovers are on the attack, posting emojis of bees (Bey) and lemons (Lemonade) all over the comment threads. You know what they mean.
Hair: A lot of wigs. Usually platinum blond. It’s not Jennifer Aniston level, but it’s nice.
Here we go again. This one’s always in the rotation. In 2005, fans first accused RiRi of sleeping with Jay, and it’s been in the mix ever since. Later, the story was shot down by biographer J. Randy Taraborrelli, who said it was a rumor manufactured to promote Rihanna’s early career.
Hair: Constantly changing. But is it good? Rihanna always looks good.
3. Cocktail Waitress in New York
Jay likes to name drop drinks in his songs—Remy, D'Usse, Ace of Spades, Grey Goose, Ciroc—to name a few. He also likes the ladies who serve them, so goes a long time rumor. Any time Jay goes to his 40/40 club in New York, he's usually surrounded by cocktail cuties in V.I.P., which leads to people talking.
Hair: We don’t know, but if she got hired there, she’s probably really pretty. Pretty girls usually have nice hair.
4. Olivia McFaller
A former model turned rapper, Olivia got her 15 minutes when she claimed publicly that a married Jay hit on her during a commercial shoot. She claims he sent his bodyguard over to get her number and they told her he wants dot meet up later that night. But smart Olivia would never betray Bey. “I could have messed with Jay, but got respect for Bey,” she later said.
She then made a song about the incident, titled Sorry Ms. Carter, where she samples OutKast’s Ms. Jackson, and sings that the rapper tried to make her his “in-town chick.”
Hair: Long, probably some extensions in there.
In 2014 singer May was the target of affair rumors, when the internet exploded with news that she was involved in a long term affair with Jay. But the singer denied it right away.
"Never did, never was, never will. Illegitimate, thirsty sources with no facts and that's the ‘media' for you-especially today. I play second to no one, pay my own bills, have my own label, own management company, rely on God only and respect myself & marriage too much for nonsense,” she said.
Hair: Nice, flowy, looks soft. Probably uses expensive shampoo.
