"Late Show" host Stephen Colbert last night dissected "Lemonade," Beyoncé's hour-long manifesto to a cheating Jay Z, in a segment called "Stephen Colbert White-Mansplains."

"Beyoncé refers to the woman Jay Z slept as Becky with the Good Hair," Colbert explained. "You may think that Becky is the name of the actual woman. It turns out, that is just a slang term for a kind of valley girl type."

"Her carrying hot sauce in her bag is like how we white men keep Newman's Own mild pineapple salsa in our fanny-packs," Colbert added, referring to Beyoncé's earlier released single, "Formation."

And finally, the part in which Beyoncé drives a monster truck over parked cars, "That is like how white men wish we could drive a monster truck over parked cars," Colbert said. "Some things are universal."
