Beyoncé vs. Rachel Roy vs. Rachel Ray


Beyoncé’s Twitter following is reacting to a song on her surprise album Lemonade that implies husband Jay Z’s cheating. One of the album’s new songs, Sorry, contains brutally honest lyrics referring to cheating with the lines “He only want me when I’m not there / He better call Becky with the good hair.”

Fans are directing outrage at fashion designer Rachel Roy, believing her to be “Becky with the good hair” referred to in the song. This is in response to Roy’s Instagram post captioned “Good hair don’t care, but we will take good lighting, for selfies, or self truths, always. Live in the light #nodramaqueens.”

The hate messages in response to Roy’s Instagram forced her to make her page private. Roy also tweets a response to the onslaught of fan anger.

Funnily enough, some fans made the mistake of confusing Rachel Roy with television cooking personality Rachel Ray. Tweets are pouring in either blasting Ray or laughing at the misunderstanding.


Possible Prince painkiller OD


TMZ reports Prince was close to overdosing on the painkiller Percocet days before his death. TMZ says it has an inside source that says Prince’s entourage told first responders Prince had taken the drug after his concert in Atlanta. They say his OD was the cause of his private plane’s emergency landing on April 15.

EMTs reportedly had to use a “save shot” in the airport after the emergency landing to save Prince’s life.

TMZ also reports Prince was seen waiting at his local Walgreen’s for medication four times in a week just before his death. No news yet if the music icon’s death was related to an overdose. Prince was prescribed Percocet to combat pain from a hip surgery in 2010.


Cruz and Kasich teaming up against Trump


Statements by Ted Cruz and John Kasich say the two are joining forces in a last-ditch effort to deny Donald Trump the Republican presidential nomination.

The statements say the pair of candidates have a strategy where Cruz will focus on Indiana and Kasich devoting his efforts to Oregon and New Mexico. The strategy is aimed at blocking Trump from gaining the 1,237 delegates necessary to claim to GOP nomination this summer. The strategy is receiving mixed reviews online.

Trump responds on Facebook and Twitter calling the two “desperate” and “sad”.
