“Beyonce is so mad I feel like I cheated on her.”
When Queen Bey surprise dropping her new visual album Lemonade on Saturday night, the internet lost their mind trying to answer so many questions, the most important of which being who “Becky with the good hair” was. The detective work done by the BeyHive basically turned into a game of telephone once word got out that it could be fashion designer Rachel Roy, and after her Instagram became private many assumed it was actually TV chef Rachael Ray because of their similar names. Honest mistake, BeyHive.
The internet had their fun with their interpretation of the album, and now it’s time for late-night talk shows to have their fun. During Monday night’s episode of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, the host took time during his monologue to “white-mansplain” the hidden messages behind Bey’s latest album, saying the album “makes powerful statements about women being disrespected, especially black women. And I know you have been waiting for a white man to explain it to you.”
Over on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Jimmy had a crack at explaining the true meaning of Lemonade with some visual help, although his explanation was geared more toward his Millennial audience as it only used emojis. Kimmel also mentions Becky with the good hair and how TV chef Rachael Ray got caught in the middle of it, but goes on to say that in turn Ray went on to make a delicious dinner in under 30 minutes after the harassment.
