Is Rita Ora Becky with the Good Hair?
Rachel Roy has taken to publicly denying she is the infamous “Becky with the good hair,” and now a new candidate has unabashedly stepped forward: Rita Ora.
Roy released the following statement to People, regarding the Instagram post seen ’round the world:
“I want to put the speculation and rumors to rest. My Instagram post was meant to be fun and lighthearted, it was misunderstood as something other than that. There is no validity to the idea that the song references me personally. There is no truth to the rumors.”
In the meantime, it appears Rita Ora has been not-so-subtly implying she is actually Becky. First came the snapchat post with her wearing a ‘J’ necklace along with a lemon bikini top.
This was posted days before the release of Lemonade. Following it’s release though, Ora stepped out in the exact outfit Beyonce wore in the Formation video.
At this point rumors were already beginning to start and she then whipped them into a frenzy by posting a photo of a poster of the film “Ash Wednesday.” The plot of the film revolves around a middle-aged woman going to extremes to get her cheating husband back, even going as far as getting reconstructive surgery.
She followed this up with yet another cryptic Snapchat post as well.
The Bey-hive is in full swing again, shifting between attacking Ora on social media, attacking Rachel Roy, and trying to see if they can connect either woman to Jay-Z.
That’s when this photo from the Met Gala, in which Solange Knowles attacked Jay-Z, was unearthed of Ora.
So, is Ora really Becky? The jury is still out on this one, but the evidence is strong.
UPDATE: Ora has just taken to Twitter to deny the rumors about her being Becky.
