2016: Beyoncé Turned Lemons Into Lemonade
Ah, the year of Beyoncé's Lemonade. When Beyoncé blessed us with the visual album on HBO, not only was the world of music forever changed, but as fans analyzed the lyrics — specifically, "Becky with the good hair" — many couldn't help wonder if JAY-Z cheated on Beyoncé?
After plenty of digging, it appeared that JAY-Z had been unfaithful to Beyoncé, and the drama was traced all the way back to the 2014 Met Gala. You know, when Solange attacked JAY-Z in that elevator? However, Becky's identity still remained a mystery. That is, until Rachel Roy inserted herself into the narrative when she Instagrammed a photo with the caption, "Good hair don't care." It's not every day that someone uses "good" with that phrase, so the Beyhive immediately began theorizing that Rachel was Becky. The fashion designer quickly denied the reports in a Twitter statement, writing, "I respect love, marriages, families, and strength."
Rachel has since remained adamant that she didn't have an affair with the rapper. Meanwhile, JAY-Z confirmed that he cheated and apologized to Beyoncé on his 4:44 album, though Becky's identity still hasn't been confirmed. Beyoncé and JAY-Z are now parents to three children, daughter Blue Ivy and twins Rumi and Sir.
