After hearing Beyonce’s new album, “Lemonade” we are all wondering who “Becky with the good hair” is that she is singing about.  Well, Beyonce’s dad ends our curiosity and lets us know who Beyonce is referring to when she sang “Becky With The Good Hair”.

Matthew Knowles sat down with E! News and spilled the beans on who the “Call Becky With The Good Hair” reference was towards.  Here’s what he had to say:


“Let me tell you who she’s talking about, can I tell you who she’s talking about? She’s talking about you,” he told E! News exclusively. “You put that in context for you personally. She’s talking about you and everybody that is you, that’s who she’s talking about.”

“I think that’s the beauty of her creativity and I think that’s what makes it so special, is that it relates to everyone,” he explained. “Every one of us have been disappointed before and have had to go through the grieving process of anger and, you know, disappointment and then acceptance and forgiveness. And I think that’s why this again is touching so many people, because it’s universal. Everybody can relate to it.”


So what do you think about daddy Matthew Knowles’ comments?  You believe him or do you think there’s a real Becky out there?
