Rita Ora Denies Being ‘Becky’ from Beyonce’s Song: ‘These Rumors Are False’
Rita Ora is clearing her name before the BeyHive comes to her mentions with pitchforks and torches.
“I never usually address tabloid gossip but let me be clear, these rumours are false,” she tweeted. “I have nothing but the upmost respect for Beyonce. Let’s continue enjoying Lemonade.” Well, that clears that up.
Ora wasn't the first person to put the "becky" allegations to bed. Fashion designer Rachel Roy was also rumored to be the "becky" (aka Jay Z's alleged mistress) after she said that she had "good hair" in an Instagram post that has since been removed.
Ora brought attention to herself when she appeared on Snapchat in a bikini embroidered with lemons and a necklace with the letter “J.” Immediately, fans made the connection to Beyonce’s album, Lemonade, and her hubby, Jay Z.
The hysteria to find the elusive "becky" stems from Beyonce's song "Sorry" off of her latest visual album, Lemonade. The album's theme seems to be about betrayal and forgiveness in a marriage. On the track, "Sorry," Queen Bey sings, "He only want me when I’m not on there / He better call Becky with the good hair.”
Now that Ora has denied the rumors, the relentless search will no doubt continue -- whether or not Jay Z cheated or not.
