Monica Lewinsky Weighs In On Lemonade Side Chick Reference news

When Beyoncé dropped her sixth studio album Lemonade last night on Tidal, all of pop culture media predictably exploded. As everyone rushed to devour the project, which was released alongside a beautiful film, it became clear that part of the album was about a lover betraying Beyoncé. She goes particularly in depth on this subject in a song called “Apathy,” in which she references a “Becky with the good hair,” who her lover apparently runs to. The reference has spurred on a whole commotion about side chicks, and now one of the most famous side chicks ever has weighed in on Lemonade: Monica Lewinsky.

In “Apathy,” Beyonce goes into full-on attack mode against this so-called Becky with the nice hair:

So what are you gonna say at my funeral now that you’ve killed me? Here lies the body of the love of my life whose heart I broke without a gun to my head. Here lies the mother of my children both living and dead. Rest in peace my true love, who I took for granted. Most bomb pussy, who because of me sleep evaded. Her shroud is loneliness, her god was listening. Her heaven will be a love without betrayal. Ashes to ashes, dust to side chicks.

People have deduced that this “Becky” character is Rachel Roy, a designer Jay-Z was rumored to have had an affair with. Roy took to Instagram to post a photo with a caption that read: “Good hair don’t care, but we will take good lighting, for selfies, or self truths, always. live in the light #nodramaqueens.” The reference to her “good hair” is what tipped everyone off to the connection with “Becky.”

Although June Ambrose denies that there’s any truth to this connection, Lewinsky—whose fame is a direct result of her affair with Bill Clinton—thought it would be in good humor to weigh in. She tweeted this just a little while ago:

It’s been a while since Lewinsky has been in the spotlight, but this was the perfect opportunity for her to jump right back in and make light of a situation that seriously affected her life. And to answer your sarcastic question, Monica, yes, you can listen: this album is way too good to pass up.
