It has been the question on everyone’s lips, and Beyoncé’s songwriter of the controversial lyric “Becky with the good hair,” has finally revealed whom the now infamous moniker is referring to.
Diana Gordon, known by the stage name Wynter Gordon told Entertainment Weekly that “Becky” doesn’t refer to any one person in particular and said was surprised by all the attention it garnered in the aftermath of its April 23 release.
“I laughed, like this is so silly. Where are we living?' Gordon said of the couplet, which says: “He only want me when I’m not there / He better call Becky with the good hair.”
She continued: “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?’”
Asked if she had spoken to Beyoncé about the reaction to the song, Gordon said: “I don't think she expected it.”
“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,” she admitted.
The track “Sorry” featured on Beyoncé’s album Lemonade, caused controversy after it was widely speculated to be referring to the infidelity of Beyoncé’s husband Jay Z, with everyone from Rita Ora to fashion designer Rachel Roy and popstar Taylor Swift in the crossfire.
While Swift, 26, remained mum on the subject, Roy, 42, and Ora, 25, both spoke out vehemently denying the rumors.
"There is no validity to the idea that the song references me personally. There is no truth to the rumors,” Roy said in an April 26 statement.
Ora wrote on Instagram the same day: “I never usually address tabloid gossip but let me be clear, these rumours are false. I have nothing but the upmost respect for Beyoncé. Let’s continue enjoying Lemonade.”
