The Short of It:
The world saw the first sign of the Apocalypse back in April when Beyoncé's album Lemonade dropped. It was packed with lyrics that suggested Beyoncé's husband might have been cheating on her with some woman named Becky. Now we're finally getting answers.
The Longer Version of It:
In a news year packed with extreme world crisis, election hullabaloo and uncertainty of how Taylor Swift will keep up with Kardashians, the ultimate question of the year has its roots in the drop of an album this past April. If you don't know what we're talking about, we're sorry that you were a castaway on an unknown island for the better half of the year. Glad you're back.
Here's the catchup:
"So, what's this big question?", you ask. We're talking about Becky with the good hair. Just who is she?
The whole world has been stumbling around trying to find the pieces to this jigsaw puzzle in the longs months after Beyoncé dropped her visual album Lemonade in an HBO special last April. Speculation on who "Becky" is caught on like wild fire after the name was referenced in the album loaded with lyrics that alluded to a marriage in turmoil. We're talking about lyrics that called out Beyoncé's husband Jay Z cheating on the Queen. The line "He only want me when I’m not there / He better call Becky with the good hair" concluded her song "Sorry" and immediately brought out a 21st century version of the inquisition in a search to find who Jay Z had betrayed Bey with. Everyone was concerned, everyone was outraged. Designer Rachel Roy and singer Rita Ora were dragged out into the pits for their association with Jay Z and theories that they could be Becky. Taylor Swift even got pulled into the witch hunt.
After months of speculation, well, we're finally getting some answers. A close look at Beyoncé's album will reveal that she had a nice team of writers collaborating with her on Lemonade. Diane Gordon is one such writer who has been writing and releasing songs since 2004 as Wynter Gordon. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly the writer talked about her work as the main writer of "Sorry" and confirmed Becky is none other than no woman in particular.
"I laughed, like this is so silly. Where are we living?" Gordon told [Entertainment Weekly](http://www.ew.com/article/2016/08/02/diana-gordon-interview?xid=entertainment-weekly_socialflow_twitter of the song. "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.
Just as you think your worries have been resolved and you can move onto concerns about Donald Trump, this news brings out a whole new batch of questions. As it turns out, Gordon contributed to a huge deal of tracks on Lemonade including Daddy Lessons. So, is it possible that Jay Z and Bey were never having marital problems as the song suggested? After all, who cheats on Bey?
