Ever since “Lemonade” dropped, there’s been no end to the rumours about Becky. Women who claim not to be Becky have spoken out even though they weren’t asked. Now, Becky appears caught in the middle of an alleged feud between Beyonce and Iggy Azalea.
The young Australian singer released a series of tweets about Becky. She criticised its use as a “negative stereotype of white women,” Mail Online reported. The publication explained that “Becky” would denote a “generic white woman with straight hair.”
Azalea’s Twitter rant began with the message “dont every call me a becky.” However, her tweet might have backfired as @phagmob called her out for using the same term in “I Think She Ready.”
Azalea defended its use as a “play on brain.” However, her succeeding comment only made the matter worse when she used “deshawns” to refer to all black men. The Twitter exchange heated up afterwards and Azalea might have sensed it. To ease the tension, she stated her opinion on Becky for the last time. She also clarified that she wasn’t disrespecting Beyoncé.
Jezebel advised Azalea to “back away from the computer” as it noted the Twitter rant would not end well for her. The publication surmised that the whole exchange had little to do with Beyoncé’s “Lemonade.” It might have been a way for Azalea to capitalise on the buzz herself, Jezebel added.
The “Sorry” lyric has sparked speculations about the Becky mentioned in the song. Fashion designer Rachel Roy was the first to give her unsolicited reaction. Hence, Team Beyhive went after her.
Singer Rita Ora became the next target on their list, Teen Vogue reported. She’s one of the artists under Jay Z’s Roc Nation Label. However, she was also rumoured as one of his mistresses, the publication revealed.
“Lemonade” appears to be a lighter sentence on Jay Z for his alleged infidelity. The alternative might have been worse considering the plan of Iggy Azalea for cheaters. She stated ” just one more thing and you will lose a quarter of your meat” following rumours that her beau NBA star Nick Young might have cheated on her.
