Beyoncé dropped her visual album Lemonade on Saturday and the world still hasn’t recovered–1. Because it’s amazing, and 2. We all want to know, definitively, who the hell “Becky with the Good Hair” is.
If you’ve been living under a rock for the past three days, here is a brief overview: In Bey’s new song “Sorry,” she alludes that Jay Z cheated on her with the lyrics, “He only want me when I’m not there/He better call Becky with the good hair.” We know. She served the
tea lemonade, and it’s piping.
And it’s sending the BeyHive into a tailspin. Fans have been chattering on Twitter all weekend trying to figure out who this mysterious Becky is. The majority opinion is that it’s fashion designer Rachel Roy, who augmented suspicion by posting a photo praising her own “good hair.” A rookie mistake.
But she’s not the only Betty–or, well, Becky–on the BeyHive’s shortlist. They’re questioning dozens of people, animals and inanimate objects–yup–and it’s amazing. These 11 are the most popular–or just hilarious.
UPDATE: 4/27/2016 1:20 P.M.
Matthew Knowles has revealed who the real “Becky” is to E! News—and it’s not at all who you think.
“Let me tell you who she’s talking about, can I tell you who she’s talking about? She’s talking about you,” Knowles told E! News. “You put that in context for you personally. She’s talking about you and everybody that is you, that’s who she’s talking about.”
Take a good, long look in the mirror, folks. Becky is (apparently) all of us.
The actual suspect. She posted (and deleted) this incriminating photo with the caption “Good hair don’t care,” which the BeyHive took as a Becky reference. Buzz buzz.

Because the BeyHive confused her with Roy. Truly iconic.
She Snapchatted herself wearing this lemon-themed lingerie days before Lemonade dropped. Coincidence…or BECKY?! The BeyHive thinks the latter.

Because she and Jay Z hung out near a volleyball net one time.

An obvious choice. No.1: He has good hair. No.2: Bey is probably still steamed he took the Grammy Award that was rightfully hers. (Or is that just us?)
This girl with bangs.
I don’t trust her for a second.
With, well, the good hair.
This mannequin head.
A true witch.

See those eyes? They’re the eyes of a side chick.
