“Lemonade,” sources said “Becky” is a composite of women Jay Z was rumored to have had liaisons with earlier in his relationship with Beyonce…but everyone should HOLD UP because he’s since changed his ways.
An insider told Page Six: “I don’t think Beyoncé is calling out one girl. It is many girls. The rumors have been around for years.”
But apparently things changed when Blue Ivy was born in 2012.
Explained the source: “Beyoncé had the baby and was like, ‘What am I doing? This is what my dad did to my mom.’ She really looked at herself. Jay is now a great husband, and this is in the past. They went through a rocky patch but things are good again. The video is about finally coming to terms with her strength and their love.”
Meanwhile, other sources think that calling out someone was a deliberate play by the couple to drive sales.
The source said, just like the Bonnie and Clyde characters they created in 2002, “They develop these storylines to sell albums. ‘Lemonade’ is a movie crafted to drive sales. Jay and Beyoncé are entertainers at the top of their game. Do you think Jay would release her album on [his own] Tidal if it really was all about him? He is 100 percent behind this.”
Another insider added, “They’re marketing masters. They’re pros at this. The more attention, the more they sell, the better. All that speculation is to get press when they need it. ‘Lemonade’ is much deeper than infidelity, but that’s the focus. As long as people are talking, they don’t care.”
Page Six kind of has the right idea. This isn’t a project that’s driven the two apart- it’s one that they made together and part of a greater vision of their “Brand.” Kinda gross. IF ONLY IT WEREN’T SO GOOOOOOD!
Rachel Roy‘s out of the hot seat…because now people think Rita Ora‘s “Becky with the good hair.” WITCH HUNT BACK ON.
The British singer has also been accused of being the woman whom Beyoncé references on album’s fourth track, “Sorry,” who cheated with her husband Jay Z. So why’s everyone thinking this? Well…
On the same night as Queen Bey’s Lemonade release, Ora took to Snapchat that showed herself in a lemon embroidered bralet (yes, a bralet) along with a “J” necklace. Beyoncé fans immediately spread the selfie on social media, because admittedly, that shizz does look SUSPICIOUS.
Ora’s in hot water as it is, as she just filed a lawsuit against Jay Z’s label Roc Nation. The “I Will Never Let You Down” singer claimed her “relationship with Roc Nation is irrevocably damaged” due to the label’s lack of support in her music career, whom she’s been affiliated with since she signed with them back in 2008.
Roy told people that she’s not at all the woman at the center of the Jay Z cheating rumors, sparked by Beyonce‘s provocative new HBO special Lemonade. Now, there was some intense speculation that began with her posting a kind-of response on her instagram that seemed in reference to Beyonce’s song, “Sorry.” It said: “Good hair don’t care, but we will take good lighting, for selfies, or self truths, always,” she captioned the now-deleted picture of her with a friend. “Live in the light #nodramaqueens.”
And then everyone freaked out and she cancelled an appearance. Now, Roy is speaking out after three days of intense speculation, saying:
“I want to put the speculation and rumors to rest. My Instagram post was meant to be fun and lighthearted, it was misunderstood as something other than that,” she said. “There is no validity to the idea that the song references me personally. There is no truth to the rumors.”
Roy, 42, continued: “Consequently, online haters have targeted me and my daughters in a hurtful and scary manner, including physical threats. As a mother – and I know many mothers would agree – I feel that bullying in any form is harmful and unacceptable. “I would hope that the media sees the real issue here – the issue of cyber bullying – and how it should not be tolerated by anyone,” she said.
Now, I feel like why people went DIRECTLY to Rachel Roy says something. But I also feel like she should definitely not be bullied- Jay Z is the dude that needs to be taking some hits for this. But I do wonder why Beyonce forgave him…he seems like a tremendous douche. Come on BEY! You’re BETTER THAN THAT! Look at a video of yourself of yore, please. And, reflect.
