"Becky" is a slang term referencing a stereotypical white girl who may be known for her skill or enthusiasm for performing oral sex.


On May 7th, 1992, the song "Baby Got Back" by Sir Mix-a-Lot was released, which features two white girls from the California Valley critiquing a Black woman's physique in the prelude. When drawing attention to the woman's posterior, one of the white girls exclaims "Oh my god, Becky. look at her butt!" (shown below).


On September 4th, 2006, Urban Dictionary[3] user rich3000 submitted an entry for the term "beckys," defining it as "hot white girls, or snobish women."

In August, the fashion and entertainment blog ClutchMagOnline[10] published an article titled "Introducing Becky," which discussed the slang term in relation to the Plies track. On November 18th, 2010, a question asking "Why are white women referred to as Becky by Black people" was submitted to Yahoo Answers,[2] to which user bajasa1 referred to it as a "cliche'd 90's name for the white girl out of the valley" and user "Know Something" referenced the lyrics in Sir Mix-a-Lot's "Baby Got Back".

On August 15th, 2011, the women's interest blog Made Woman[9] published an article titled "I Am Not Your Becky | white Girl Speaks on Interracial Dating."

Beyoncé's "Sorry"

In April 2016, Beyoncé released her sixth studio album Lemonade, which contains the lyric "He better call Becky with the good hair" in the song "Sorry" about a cheating husband.

On April 25th, 2016, rapper Iggy Azalea tweeted "don't ever call me a becky," followed by a tweet arguing against "generalizing any race by calling them one stereotypical name for said race" (shown below).[5][6] Additionally, she went on to elaborate that she was not directing the tweets at Beyonce.[4]

Gwyneth Paltrow Rumor

While speaking on a podcast with Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag, Amber Rose jokingly suggested that Gwyneth Paltrow may have been the rumored "Becky With the Good Hair" whom Jay-Z cheated on Beyoncé with.[11] Variety reported on the story but appears to have deleted it; links to the story now lead to Variety's home page, and a tweet about the story have been deleted.
