Queer women love mess.

UPDATED: Fletcher's video for “Becky’s So Hot” has dropped, and it is, as promised so hot. It features vibrators, motorcycle make-outs, and Bella Thorne. We’ve heard of revenge bodies before to make an ex jealous, but revenge videos? This takes lesbian chaos to the next level, and we love it. Watch the new video below.


As queer fans gear up for the release of Fletcher’s debut album, Girl of My Dreams, drama is already kicking up around one of the songs.

Last week, the singer shared a clip of “Becky’s So Hot,” highlighting the lyrics: “Are you in love like we were? / If I were you, I’d probably keep her / Makes me wanna hit her when I see her / ‘Cause Becky’s so hot in your vintage t-shirt.”

In other words, the song is about being simultaneously jealous of and attracted to an ex’s new girlfriend — and for Fletcher, this isn’t just a theoretical.

Speculation swirled for some time that she and YouTuber Shannon Beveridge were an item, something the two confirmed after they split in 2020. Fletcher has written songs about their relationship in the past, and they ended up collaborating on videos for her EP, The S(ex) Tapes, while they were stuck in quarantine together but already broken up.

But now Shannon has a new girlfriend named, as you might guess, Becky.

Both Becky and Shannon have made it clear they had nothing to do with the song, with Shannon specifically stating in a TikTok that “this is not PR that I’m a part of. This is not a collaboration… No one asked permission.”

Unsurprisingly, people have very different thoughts on the matter.

The whole situation has opened an interesting, if familiar, can of worms regarding just how much privacy someone can expect when dating an artist, or specifically, a songwriter — not to mention how much privacy someone can expect when they themselves are a YouTuber, or dating one.

Scores of musicians have written about their relationships, their exes, and even the people their exes are currently dating. And while not all of them call out people by name, it feels safe to say Ed Sheeran, for example, isn’t out here getting accused of stirring up drama.

For her part, Fletcher doesn’t seem too concerned about the response. She posted a silly lip sync teasing the idea of addressing the drama, and previously made her thoughts on songwriting known during The S(ex) Tapes era.

“[Making music] allows me to say f*cked up sh*t that I probably would never be able to say in words [otherwise],” she told NYLON. “I could just put a pretty melody behind it and then get away with saying some crazy, psycho, petty bullsh*t.”

Regardless of where your opinion falls on the matter, we can all agree that this is absolute chaos. And, in that sense, it really is the most appropriate way to hype up the release of a new queer album, isn’t it?

Fletcher's Girl of My Dreams is out September 16.
