When speaking about the massive attention the lyric received–not to mention the attacks the BeyHive served celebs like Rachel Roy and Rita Ora–the songwriter said: “I laughed, like this is so silly. Where are we living? I was like, ‘What day in age from that lyric do you get all of this information? Is it really telling you all that much, accusing people?'”
Diana added: “The idea started in my mind but it’s not mine anymore. It was very funny and amusing to me to watch it spread over the world. If it’s not going to be me saying it, and the one person in the world who can say it is Beyoncé, I was f–king happy. With Beyoncé, I feel like the songs we worked on were specifically for her.”
“There is no validity to the idea that the song references me personally. There is no truth to the rumors,” Rachel said, while Rita also wrote on IG, “I never usually address tabloid gossip but let me be clear, these rumours are false. I have nothing but the upmost respect for Beyoncé. Let’s continue enjoying Lemonade.”
Diana even admitted that Bey, herself, wasn’t even prepared for the lyric to be so huge. “I don’t think she expected it,” the songwriter revealed.
Sorry BeyHive. You were stinging for no reason. But, I probably already know what you guys are thinking right now, anyway…
