Last week during an appearance on Heidi and Spencer Pratt’s podcast, Amber Rose dropped a two year belated bombshell, claiming she thinks Gwyneth Paltrow is “Becky with the good hair” from Beyoncé’s Lemonade. I would have thought that every moment since Amber dropped Gwyneth’s name has been pure bliss, because just think of all that delicious attention it’s brought her! I clearly don’t know Amber Rose as well as I thought, because she recently admitted that she feels bad now.
After Amber made her comments, Gwyneth’s rep shot down the rumor that she got with Jay-Z, calling it 100% false. Not long after that, Amber tweeted that she was just joking.
Bruh we were joking on a Podcast! Lol stop with the Clickbait! I have no information about anyone’s Personal Life. FOH 😒

Joking or not, Amber’s comments probably still caused some skeptical types to start building a large conspiracy theory picture wall in their bunker to link Jay-Z and Gwyneth while combing Goop.com for clues. Amber recently spoke to The Daily Mail to promote her annual SlutWalk, and she let it be known she feels really bad for making a joke about Gwyneth’s personal life.
“I feel bad because that’s someone’s personal life and it was just me joking about something that I don’t know anything about at all. I never want to hurt anyone’s feelings. Even though I don’t know them personally, it’s just not the kind of personality that I have. And for Gwyneth to be like ‘Why did she say that, that’s not true?’ it’s like ‘Why did I say that?’ I don’t know anything. I was just speaking as a consumer.”
Amber added that she had no kind of “inside information,” and that she doesn’t know Beyoncé or Gwyneth.
I doubt Gwyneth was really that bothered. In fact, Amber’s blatant lie probably made Gwyneth nostalgic. “Ah, to say a load of nonsense without having to back it up with any kind of evidence. Really takes me back to the goop ol’ days.”
