No Beckys here. Rita Ora took a selfie with Beyoncé inside the 2016 Met Gala bash on Monday, May 2, in New York City. The friendly moment arrives after Ora came under fire from the superstar’s fans as a possible “Becky” following the release of Bey’s Lemonade track “Sorry.”
The “I Will Never Let You Down” singer, 25, became a target for the Beyhive after she posted a photo of herself in a bra adorned with lemons on Snapchat following the April 23 release Queen Bey’s visual album.
In the tune, Bey sings about how her unfaithful lover should call “Becky with the good hair,” alluding to a mystery mistress.
Ora added fuel to the fire when she stepped out two days after the record dropped, wearing Beyoncé’s red and white Gucci “Formation” ensemble.
But Ora denied that she was the woman associated with the controversial lyrics.
“I never usually address tabloid gossip but let me be clear, these rumours are false,” Ora, who signed with Jay Z’s Roc Nation in 2008, tweeted on April 26. “I have nothing but the utmost respect for Beyonce. Let’s continue enjoying Lemonade.”
Rachel Roy was also targeted by the Beyhive after she hinted that she was Becky by captioning a since-deleted Instagram post “good hair don’t care.” Roy also denied that she’s Becky despite unconfirmed reports linking the designer to the rapper.
Bey and Jay Z tied the knot in 2008.
