Karrine Steffans Isn't Done Talking About Being Beyoncé's 'Becky'

Karrine Steffans Isn't Done Talking About Being Beyoncé's 'Becky'

She's still thirsty for that Lemonade attention.

Published May 3, 2016

In case she didn't hold your attention long enough last week after penning an essay about being Beyoncé's "Becky," Karrine Steffans is speaking out again, and this time, she's directly addressing Queen Bey.

Columbus Short's estranged wife called in to Roz & Mocha of Kiss 92.5 to explain to interested viewers exactly what she meant in her lengthy piece where she dubbed herself "Becky with the good hair."

Speaking on hooking up with Jay Z in the back of a car, she said this was all pre-Bey: "That was forever ago, it was ages ago," she said. "Probably June 2000, [pre-Beyoncé] yeah of course totally... We never talked about it because it just wasn't important."

As far as Beyoncé ignoring the whole Becky media conversation altogether, Karrine says she gets it — Bey's got a world tour and a No. 1 album to worry about. "I think when it comes to Beyoncé, she's kind of busy so maybe that's why," she said. "No one ever attacks men for their sexual relationship with women yet attack those same women for their sexual relationships with men and it's wrong. Women have the right to govern their own bodies... Nobody will ever go after the man except for me."

She also had one more thing to say to Bey regarding Lemonade: "Good job because one thing Beyoncé has done is start a conversation."
