Beyonce's 'Becky with the good hair' mystery has finally been solved

Ever since Beyoncé released 'Lemonade', one particular line from the song 'Sorry' has sent the Internet into a frenzy.

"He only want me when I'm not there / He better call Becky with the good hair" led everyone to assume that the song was written about Jay Z's infidelity, with fans pointing the finger at everyone from Rachel Roy to Rita Ora as the 'Becky' in question.

However, the main writer of the song, Diana 'Wynter' Gordon, has now come out and said that 'Becky with the good hair' is . . . well, nobody in particular, and that people were basically getting way ahead of themselves.

She told EW: "I laughed, like this is so silly. Where are we living? I was like, 'What day in age from that lyric do you get all of this information? Is it really telling you all that much, accusing people?'"

She said that she had not really spoken to Beyoncé about the reaction, but, "I don’t think she expected it. I saw her at her Formation tour. She had a pajama party; we laughed, we danced, we hugged it out. But I didn’t say much about it at the time because I wanted to give her space. The idea started in my mind but it’s not mine anymore. It was very funny and amusing to me to watch it spread over the world. If it’s not going to be me saying it, and the one person in the world who can say it is Beyoncé, I was f—ing happy."


So, now you know.
