Beyoncé's 'Becky with the good hair' lyric from 'Sorry' off of the LEMONADE album has caused SO MUCH DRAMA since the HBO special first aired last weekend. Not only has Rita Ora been forced to deny she's the 'Becky' who Jay-Z might have cheated on Bey with, but now Iggy Azalea's explained she has no time for the term 'Becky' 'cos of its connotations.
'Becky' is a term that's sometimes used to refer to stereotypical white women with straight hair; and Iggy-Iggs took to Twitter to say she thinks it's racially derogatory but insisted she wasn't shading Queen Bey.
"Don't ever call me a Becky," Iggy tweeted one fan, adding: "And by the way, this is not bey shade. i love her and the album. but my name is iggy, and you will all call me that."
Then, when another fan questioned why she used the term herself in the track 'I Think She Ready,' Iggy responded: "It was used as a play on brain and brian. you would not be down if i started calling all black men "deshawns"'.
Tweeting another user, Iggy said: "girl BYE. do you know how many time ppl have called me BECKY? it didnt have any kind of positive intention behind it. dont start.
"Generalizing ANY race by calling them one sterotypical name for said race. i personally dont think is very cool, the end." [sic]."
So what about those claiming Iggy's contradicting herself given the whole 'deshawns' comment, then? "its clearly not okay for me to call any other race a generalized name (i agree) so why is it okay for others to do the same to me? it has to apply to all. if anyone misses the point - their loss," she explained.
Iggy then signed off claiming she she 'loves' the LEMONADE album and retweeting a fan defending her argument.
What d'ya make of that, then? Tweet us over @sugarscape and all that malarky, please and cheers.
