Beyoncé's Not the First Person to Make "Becky" Go Viral

#Lemonade has everyone buzzing about a woman named Becky... again.

Beyoncé has done it again with the release of her stunning visual album Lemonade, which dropped over the weekend. The music is honest and raw, offering what fans might assume is an intimate look at the superstar's personal relationships, including the possible strife and infidelity she's faced in her marriage to fellow megastar Jay Z. Adultery is an overarching theme on the album, with Beyoncé even calling out the maybe-other woman on the track, "Sorry." On that song she sings, “He only want me when I’m not on there / He better call Becky with the good hair.” The BeyHive has since made some assumptions about who this "Becky" could be — designer Rachel Roy is at the top of the list — but Beyoncé is not the first person to make the name "Becky" go viral.

The vintage (because, let's face it, 2014 is pretty retro in the world of the internet) meme above features a high school photo of Taylor Swift that was misidentified as someone named Becky. The image exploded and resulted in even Taylor herself acknowledging the mix up

But, let's be clear: that's definitely not the "Becky with the good hair," even if Taylor's hair does look pretty good there.
