Country duo Brothers Osborne think they might know who “Becky with the good hair” is. If you’re unfamiliar with the lyric, you’re not a Beyoncé fan. The pop singer uses that line in the 2016 song “Sorry” featured on her Lemonade album. The line refers to the woman her husband Jay-Z was cheating on her with.
“He only want me when I’m not there / He better call Becky with the good hair,” Bey sings. Recently, Amber Rose went on Spencer and Heidi Pratt’s podcast “Make Speidi Famous Again,” saying that she believed Gwyneth Paltrow was “Becky.”
“They were like friends, and then, like, you don’t see Gwyneth Paltrow with Beyoncé anymore,” Amber said. “But like Beyoncé’s still with Jay.”
Gwyneth, through her rep has had to come out to deny the claims saying, it is “completely absurd and 100 percent false.” After causing a stir, Amber has since taken to Twitter to share that it was all a joke.
“Bruh we were joking on a Podcast! Lol stop with the Clickbait! I have no information about anyone’s Personal Life. FOH,” she wrote in a post.

Enter Brothers Osborne, who are getting in on the joke and taking the heat off Gwyneth and putting it on country’s own Reba, who we all know has great hair.
“All this talk about Gwyneth Paltrow being “Becky with the good hair” when everyone knows it’s
@Reba,” they joked on Twitter.
We can’t disagree, Reba does have the best hair in country music and TJ and John Osborne are always giving us something to think about.
