Rita Ora Addresses Those “Becky With the Good Hair” Rumors

This past spring, when Beyonce set pop culture on fire with the release of her visual album, LEMONADE, everyone was hellbent on finding the identity of “Becky with the good hair,” which is how Beyonce described the other woman in her song, “Sorry.”

As we all know, Rachel Roy‘s named was dragged into the mix, due to an Instagram post she sent out the day after Beyonce’s HBO premiere.

But another woman who was accused of being “Becky with the good hair,” was singer, Rita Ora.

Ora, who was signed to Jay Z‘s Roc Nation record label, is finally addressing those rumors in an interview with Vanity Fair.

“First and foremost, Jay Z is my inspiration and one of my idols — lyrically, musically, business-wise,” she told the publication.

“I still look up to him and his wife every day. Beyoncé was one of my biggest idols growing up.”

What may have fueled the “Becky with the good hair” speculation even further was Ora wearing a “Not Becky” pin to the 2016 Met Gala after-party and posing on Snapchat with a lemon applique bra. According to Ora, she wasn’t aware of how all of this was suspicious to fans.

“That pin was a present from Katy Perry,” said Ora.

“Maybe I was the only one seen wearing it, but there were others. As for the rest of it, I’m oblivious, I’m just not the gossip queen. I find it incredibly rude and disrespectful to women in general [when] we get accused of something that’s basically against the important part — the music.”

Ora went on to call the rumors “incredibly rude and disrespectful.”
