Beyoncé dropped her "visual album" Lemonade over the weekend, and the world's still rocking like a Super Bowl halftime show that didn't invite Coldplay. Iggy Azalea, who probably didn't need any additional bad press after getting cheated on publicly by Nick Young (or just publicly dating Nick Young in general, who affectionately nicknamed himself Swaggy P), tweeted about how the slang "Becky" makes her feel.
Apparently, all that happened was someone called her Becky and she asked them to not do that.
Here's her damage control after several sites reported that she was calling Beyoncé racist. She quotes this tweet:
"Becky" references a Beyoncé lyric that many are interpreting as a reference to the woman Jay Z cheated on Beyoncé with. Queen Bey sings, "He better call Becky with the good hair." Whether that's Rita Ora, Rachel Roy, Rachel Ray, or one of a million Beckys this writer took tennis lessons alongside, it doesn't matter to Azalea.
And if you now understand that "Becky" is sometimes slang for white woman, you're now ready to learn its other meaning, according to Azalea.
And that's that. Plus, Azalea needs you to know she is human, and she loves Beyoncé like everyone else.
Still, you may never find out why a woman with the name Iggy doesn't jump at the opportunity to change it to Becky.
