Iggy Azalea not happy with Beyonce’s Lemonade

Iggy Azalea has slammed Beyonce for stereotyping white women in her new album Lemonade.

In a series of tweets on Monday, the 25-year-old rapper criticised the line, “Becky with the good hair”, saying it was a negative stereotype of white women.

In Beyonce’s track Sorry, she sings about a cheating lover – prompting many people to assume she was talking about Jay Z having an affair – and tells him to “call Becky with the good hair.”

“Becky” is a phrase that has been known to refer to a generic white woman with straight hair, and Iggy implied that the term is racially insensitive.

“Don’t ever call me a Becky,” she tweeted to a fan, before stating that she was criticising the phrase and not Beyonce.

“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.”

When another Twitter user pointed out that she used the term herself in her 2012 song I Think She Ready, she defended herself, writing: “It was used as a play on brain and brian. you would not be down if i started calling all black men “deshawns”
