[Blind Gossip] Just who is the “Becky with the good hair” that Beyonce references on her new album?
For those who don’t know, “Becky with the good hair” roughly translates to a dumb, non-black girl. The modern origin of the nickname goes back to Sir Mix a Lot’s Baby Got Back, where you have one dumb white Valley girl saying to another “Oh… my… God, Becky, look at her butt. It is so big!… She’s just so… black!”
The mysterious Becky of Beyonce’s song supposedly had an affair with Jay-Z. Everybody has a different opinion of which of the couple’s “friends” it could be.
Here is a partial list of women (all races) who have been linked with Jay-Z over the years. Which one do you think is Becky?
Rachael Ray (Just kidding!)

[Optional] Do you think Beyonce is racist?
If you have ever heard Beyonce talk (she’s not smart) you would know there is no way she writes her music, does she some part I’d say a small one JayZ controls it all she’s just a wind-up doll. And that is why she’s not going anywhere…
I agree it’s a composite of all the women in this album. Kanye has thrown shade to Taylor Swift in defense to Beyonce somehow. I don’t know if she did anything with JayZ but I have no doubt, he probably tried to hook up with her or said something about her in front of Beyonce to tick her off.
Taylor Swift “Shake It Off”
My ex-man brought his new girlfriend
She’s like “Oh, my god!” but I’m just gonna shake.
And to the fella over there with the hella good hair
Won’t you come on…
Hot Cocoa says
It’s either Claudia Scheelen or Rachel Roy. And those whacko fans of Beyoncé, why do they harass the women instead of Jay? No one is twisting his arm to have these affairs.
The whole thing is a publicity stunt. He always cheated on her, and he always will. She’s no feminist. She married a cheater for her career and money. Otherwise her career would be nowhere like the other people in her group.
Since Victoria Beckham is on this list, it pretty much confirms the blind from earlier this week. She had a thing with Jay-Z and not Prince.
Everyone, except Taylor Swift. And if Victoria Bechkam cheated on David with Jay Z? That just makes her the stupidest woman in the world!
Is Beyonce racist? Only when it suits her.
OK I’m changing my guess on the cheating blind from the other day. I guessed Damon Dash was the one Posh had an affair with, but I now think it was Jay Z. The blind the other day made out like the person Posh cheated with would be a big scandal, and Damon Dash wouldn’t make a big scandal, whereas Jay Z would. I can’t believe Jay Z would even look at someone as awful as Posh, but then again he seems to be happy to stick it anywhere. She is “Easy V” after all 😀
Clue – 1989 in the photo. Posh’s maiden name is Victoria Adams. And it just so happens that there is a Scottish curler named Vicki Adams who was born in 1989.
I think it’s more of a question of who he hasn’t hooked up with. I worked with Rachel Roy and her line when I worked in public relations in NYC. I really liked her. She’s definitely getting a lot of publicity right now and you know what they say, negative publicity is better than no publicity!
Yes, Beyonce is racist. She sucks. She should stop alienating her white fans.
Definitely ruling out Aaliyah because she died before they even got together so if beyonce were annoyed about that she’s got issues
No. I think she is provocative, but not racist.
I don’t know why you included Taylor Swift on that list because she has never been linked to Jay Z in that way and everyone knows that Becky reference on her shirt was for tumblr…
I don’t necessarily think this song is referring to a specific person, probably an amalgamation of his mistresses and if the other theme of the album is black womanhood then why not throw in a reference about it being a white woman? If I had to pinpoint someone I’d say Rita Ora or Gwynneth Paltrow though.
Eww…how disgusting would it be if Posh cheated on yummy David with Camel?
Rita Ora or Gwyneth Paltrow
Gee, and I thought it was David Beckham. JK!
I personally think it’s Rita Ora, considering she’s trying to make the world think she’s black (which she’s not, her parents are Bosnian).
And no, she’s not. White people have been making fun of POC for ages and they don’t experience oppression (and even have to apologize for their dumb jokes, urgh)
Sorry, her parents are Albanian. She was born in Kosovo.
OBVIOUSLY Victoria Beckham.
1. YOUR blind item on 22nd of April 2016 – she is also married to an athlete
2. Becky refers to a white woman, no? Victoria is white, and she has good hair
3. All you need to do is google victoria beckham jay z and you will find pieces the power couples hanging out in the past.
If this is her, I have lost all respect for her because I had such faith in her and David. Although, nothing is truly certain except uncertainty.
Is Beyonce racist? Yes,…
My guess would be Rita Ora. I remember some previous blinds hinting at them having an affair.
As for whether Beyonce’s racist – I don’t know. I don’t know her. But I do think it’s ridiculous to get hung up on the race of your husbands mistress. Surely it’s just as bad regardless of what the colour of her skin is..
From her tweets saying how offensive the term BECKY is, my guess is Iggy Azalea.
“‘Don’t ever call me a Becky,’ she tweeted to a fan, before stating that she was criticising the phrase and not Beyonce. ‘And by the way, this is not bey shade. i love her and the album. but my name is iggy, and you will all call me that.’
She then tweeted to another user: ‘girl BYE. do you know how many time ppl have called me BECKY? it didnt have any kind of positive intention behind it. dont start…
Becky for Beckham…
Given the previous blind about an athlete’s wife having an affair, my money is on Victoria BECK (y)HAM
Possibly, who knows what goes on in people’s heads.
Krabby Kakes says
Becky as it is used today is a white girl. Not mixed. White. And not necessarily one who behaves in a dumb manner.
Beyonce’s Becky/s IMO is/are Rachel Roy and/or Rita ora.
Given the definition of what Becky is (as stated in my comment) beyonce is not racist. I do think however that she is not problack/pro white. I think she’s just pro play her fans feelings to get her money.
She’s a self anointed feminist and here she is gathering a mob to attack other women and their kids for her…
I don’t know, but geez, Jay has gotten around!
All of them!!!
Becky could be a play on Victoria Beckham’s name, so I guess I’ll go with her.
I don’t know if I’d call her racist but she’s only further instigating the racial divide going on lately.
I think B is racist to call a woman “Becky.” I’m not perfect, but I’m sick of public figures being racist.
Rachel Roy, OLD news.
Do you think Beyonce is racist? Yes
No wonder Beyoncé chose a surrogate. I wouldn’t let my husband stick it in me if he slept with that many women during our marriage. Thank god I’m not married.
Isn’t she somehow invested in tidal?? I believe the album is bs…. nothing but marketing to try and drum up subscribers to tidal. All these people “show support” or provoking have something to gain through us subscribing to their tidal. Buyer beware
Whoa… I missed something! When was Taylor Swift linked to Jay Z?!?
Rita Ora for sure. Gag.
Victoria Beckham = Becks = Becky
P.S. First time here
I think Becky is Rachel Roy.
I’m white and am not offended by it. Reverse racism isn’t really a thing because there is no historical context there to make it so a poc can be ‘racist’ to white people. But is Beyonce prejudiced? Yes.
Yep, I do. I also think the whole thing is a fake put-up job to create non- existent drama to sell her album and make her and her husband a crapload of money. And Becky definitely isn’t Gwyneth. She had an affair with Jay-z, but her hair is a damaged mess.
No idea who the real Becky is but would LOL if it was Little Ms Perfect Gwynnie.
Optional: Dunno – is the Pope Catholic?
Eewwww that many woman wanted ugly Jay Z?!!!!
I don’t think she’s racist, but she sure looks dumb trying to look like a strong woman, when she stays with that dirty dog!!
Becky: Gwyneth Paltrow
that list is soooo looong…hmmm Im thinking still going to be Rachel Roy and yeah Beyawnce is a full on racist. just youtube black panthers, nuff said
I don’t know who Becky could be. All this nonsense is all to get attention! It’s all about boosting her album sales. Hence, Kanye’s Twitter rants not that long ago.
Beyoncé is all about promoting racial tension. Her job is to promote chaos among the masses. Her singing and dancing are somewhere on the list.
Carolina Girl says
I think Lemonade was released to create more hype for the Formation Tour. More made up shade for white people . Most of the names on this list have been linked to him so no news there. He is homely and not handsome at all. None of them would give him a second look if he worked in a store or some blue color job. They all have a What’s in it for me relationship. So what is the big deal about hooking up with the Horn Dog?
Hey – how fun was the alphabetical list ending with Becky Beckham!!
Becky Victoria Beckham for the win.
Gwyneth might fit.
Who in their right mind would want to be Becky???.
I’m rooting for Rita Ora(l)
Oh for christ’s sake. Becky isn’t specifically referring to anyone. It’s a general catch all term for a woman (white, black or otherwise) with european-like features. It’s a funny line, and fit with the overarching idea of black woman being disrespected by their men. I feel like the fanbase knows its one big joke, but the mainstream media is actually shook. Yall are being played, sis…
Cotton Kandi says
There is no Becki with the good hair. It’s all a marketing and publicity scheme just to promote her stupid music and tour. More jedi mind tricks and staged drama everytime Beyonce has an album. She goes overboard and just saturates the entire market. Anything to stay relevant.
Kinda thinking this is Gwyneth Paltrow. For street cred.
And lumping most white girls together and calling them “Beckies” is about the same as lumping most black girls together and calling them “Boomquiesha”. Just everybody knock it off and play nice.
Becky: I’m going with Goop.
Is it just me or is that a long list? I’d be singing Lemonade over 1 woman if it were my hubby! I’m guessing Rachel Roy is Becky. Lol, no, I don’t think she’s being racist, I caught the Becky comment from Sir Mix-a-Lot.
I say “NONE OF THE ABOVE”. I think it’s just some marketing ploy by two masters of the game.
I’d be shocked if Beyonce WASN’T racist.
I’m going with Ms Goop herself, wasn’t she in a lot of photos with Jay Z in the past?
I don’t know if B is racist but she is definitely a byotch
Becky: All of the above…
Yes and she is a thief! She stole the concept from an underground writer who survived horrible abuse, it was a performance piece.. She stole the footage too! She is a huge racist but more than that Beyonce is about Beyonce. She doesn’t care about black people, she cares about money. Nothing is secret to this woman not someone else words, storytelling, concept, marriage or art. She is a pig.
She didn’t steal anything. She asked for permission and gave credit to the artists- even ones she didn’t have too. And idk about not caring about black ppl but she has given 1,000s of dollars to black charities and movements. Not every thing is done out of evil or malice sis. Celebs are ppl too- some of them truly care
Oh please doll. They were stolen and I know that for a fact. She has done that in the past, as she is a thief. End of story.
I think Becky is a composite of many women, only some imaginary figure to make people talk.
This whole album has been masterminded by BOTH Jay Z and Beyonce. All of the Beyhive is full of daf chumps who will eat up anything.
But hey, Bey and Jay KNOW those idiots will believe anything their idols put out, and pay for it! (Tidal, hello)….and that is where stupid equals cash!
Becky is an amalgamation of all of the side chicks. Take your pick
I don’t see Gwenyth Paltrow on that list…
“Becky” is alla them!
I don’t think she’s racist, just dumb. Some songwriter thought it would be “cute, hip and provocative” to add that line and she agreed. Foolishness all the way around.
Good hair bad persona.
Ewww. ? If true & JZ is a serial cheater I can only imagine that list being much much larger with non famous women. Guess we will be reading about another famous person with Aids soon.SMDH. Why do these women sleep with famous married people of all people? They have to know if true hes NOT going to leave his wife. They never do! Unless the man is publicly leaving the marriage dont hold your breath…especially if you sleep with him hes only gonna a look at you like a disrespectful side HO
Not sure who it is, but lets stop blaming the other person when the person we’re with turns out to be a piece of lying *? it takes two to tango, and you dont know what people say to others so they get their own way.
I dont think Bey is racist, I thinks shes angry, a bit bitter, and fighting back… but if shes truly truly angry, divorce the piece of shit before it gets the better of her.
I think it’s Gwyneth Paltry. Notice that she and Yawnsy aren’t hanging out anymore?
Gwyneth was babysitting Blue Ivy in the stands curing the SuperBowl. It’s not her.
foo fighter says
I think Becky is Rita Ora.
YES YES YES YES YES Bey is very racist. Its awful.
Grande Queso says
If it were a white girl calling girls with kinky hair a certain name, it would be perceived as racist. And then say, many races have kinky hair.. it totally wouldnt fly.
foo fighter says
You are SOOO right!! Worst part is people are looking up and idolizing a racist high school drop out and an ex- drug dealer. Its so sad the she is using this platform to promote herself and sell tickets. So many amazing people throughout history have worked hard to move us forward in unity and she is just pushing it all back. I hope more people see past the smoke and mirror show.
of course Beyoncé isn’t racist.
Becky is a composite of several women. but Rachel Roy has to be in there because on another part of the album Beyoncé says “call that old *”—Rachel Roy is 42, about 10 years older than B
Lol! Bey is pushing 40.
If we take into account the blind from the other day, Victoria Beckham is Becky!!!!
Grande Queso says
I caught that too!
Gyneth Paltrow… weren’t there blinds on them hooking up before?
So tired of this lemonade crap, but I like Taylor’s shirt. I’m black, but I would wear it. I got good hair. I wouldn’t sleep with a camel tho. lol
I think “Becky” is combination of affairs he’s had. Rita Ora, Rhianna, Rachel Roy, and Gwyneth Paltrow.
I believe either Rachel Roy, Rita Ora, someone lesser known like Pia Mia is Becky.
Beyonce isn’t racist. Just an attention * who likes to stir up publicity.
Becky: Rachel Roy (for some reason I thought this was already confirmed)
[Optional] Do you think Beyonce is racist? Oh yeah. Though, she’s incredibly uneducated and ignorant and may just listen to what others tell her instead of forming her own opinions.
Same, definitely thought this was confirmed from the infamous Solange elevator incident
I think it is Rachel Roy
I dont think Beyonce is racist. A becky is the same terminology you would use to call someone a bimbo or a side chick, it’s not racially motivated
Dancing with Mr D says
I haven’t eve heard of half of these people, but I’m thinking Victoria Beckham.
But wouldn’t it be juicy if it were Gwyneth Paltrow?
Gwyneth Paltrow. And not just because she’s a blond. she’s other things as well.
I am going to go with Posh Beckham.
Maybe she is but how else is she gonna express ‘dumb non-white girl’ otherwise?
I don’t think Victoria is dumb at all… she’s probably smarter than all the black girls on the list put together, including Beyonce. She’s smart enough to build her own brand by staying married (and not spilling ANY tea) to David, and she’ll do fine by herself when she finally gets tired of him
tell me more says
Stop picking in black girls….
All the black girls, eh?
Taylor Swift. Haha – I about choked on my coffee when I read that. They are all probably Becky. And yes, I think Beyonce is racist.
Who cares who Becky is? Beyonce is so fake. I am super tired of seeing and hearing about her. Jay-Z too, if I’m honest.
It’s amazing how people don’t question Beyonce’s extramarital affairs but drag Jay-Z through the mud. Yay for feminism!
Tired of “revolutionary” Beyoncé, too, along with the buttkissing critics who consider her a profound artist. But, hey, someone’s gotta replace Madonna & Prince, right?
Also tired of not only Jay Z being the villain, but also so many other celeb hubbies being painted as the bad guy in divorces. Misandry is getting more prevalent in our culture.
As for who “Becky” might be in the song (& not that I’ve bothered to listen to that), she sounds more like an allegory than an individual.
tell me more says
All a stunt to hv ppl talking tho
tell me more says
I Am PunkA says
Becky is a generic for every other woman JayZ slept with. It’s all of them together. Lots of them. But mostly Gwyneth Paltrow.
I don’t think she is racist, but I also don’t think she is very bright. Definitely not articulate, and doesn’t write her own songs. And just jumping on the social justice bandwagon for publicity and to sell albums, and it worked. I’m sure JayZ was behind it. He’s smart at business.
Smart. Conniving. It’s kind of the same.
Nailed it 100%, IAmAPunkA. Regardless of how smart Bey is, she is part of a brilliant marketing machine. They are not breaking any boundaries or taking any risks. When truly inspired/activist artists break boundaries and get recognition or mainstream approval, THEN that gets added to the marketing plan.
But it’s not just about $$–it’s also about legacy. I think Bey’s team is trying to set her apart from the Katy Perry-Britney-Mariah Manufactured Pop Star/Empty Lyrics/Real Moron Club.
Tequila Mama says
Totally agree with everything you said. IMO the saying “Becky with the good hair” is ignorant.
Becky: Victoria Beckham (Becky for Beckham, clearly)
This and yes, Beyonce is a racist if she’s got a name for “white girls”, just as I would be a racist if I have a name for “black girls”.
She’s just racist overall, even black women have pointed out how darker skinned people have been portrayed in her latest videos Lemonade and Formation as well as her use of the word Creole.
And that line “I love my negro nose with Jackson 5 nostrils”? Not with two or more nose jobs you don’t!
She should never have done her latest nose job that year of the superbowl, it makes her look really masculine.
It’s a urban street term. The term come from sir mix a lot video “baby got back”.
Becky: Rachel Roy, Gwynneth Paltrow
Please…..Becky is a term we use for a “basic white girl”
“Becky” is not a new term….maybe to you guys.
It has nothing to do with Beckham.
Also, remove every woman of color name from this list.
Composite of all of them. She knows there have been many women
Totally this. JayZ is a known hound dog and Beyonce has put up with it for the fame and money.
I love Lemonade, and I love the message she is sending about strong women. However, at the end of the day, she forgives the man and still blames/shames the woman when it is the man who betrayed their vows. I have a big problem with her staying silent while her fans bully other women online; where is the strong feminist Beyonce now? She needs to step up.
This is so unbelievably well said!!
Jay Z collaborated with her on this record so none of this was a surprise for him. It’s just another marketing gimmick. Their whole relationship is a business arrangement.
I agree! Very well put. He’s a dog for doing this to her and I can understand the anger at the other women for disrespecting her and her marriage, but the majority of blame and anger should be directed at her cheating hubby. Hard to be with a cheater, so many emotions. Dated one once, it was torture.
