Is Rita Ora "Becky" From 'Lemonade'? Her Recent Snapchat Raises Some Eyebrows — UPDATE
I've always been a massive Beyoncé fan, but now, in this post-Lemonade world we're all living in, I think I love her even more. Her HBO special was incredible, and now that her new songs have dropped on Tidal and iTunes, I've been playing them on repeat, trying to piece together the clues Queen Bey has dropped to figure out what is actually going on behind the music. If we take the lyrics at face value, it sounds like Jay Z may have cheated with someone called "Becky with the good hair," and now the biggest question on my mind is who that's actually referring to. But now, there could be brand new information that is blowing my mind: Rita Ora could be the Becky from Lemonade . Update: Ora has denied the rumors on Twitter. She wrote, "I never usually address tabloid gossip but let me be clear, these rumours are false. I have nothing but the upmost respect for Beyonce. Let’s continue enjoying Lemonade."
I know what you're thinking: Wait, didn't Rachel Roy ( not Ray) seemingly out herself as Becky over the weekend? Yeah, she kind of did, but what if she's not the woman Beyoncé was singing about? Plus, in a statement to People Tuesday morning, Roy totally denied being Becky.
As for Ora, on Saturday night — when the special first aired — she Snapchatted a photo of herself in a bra with lemons on it, wearing a necklace with the initial "J" on it. Um, could be a total coincidence, but after seeing the photo I can totally understand why people are convinced that she's trying to tell us something.
Of course, it's totally possible that Ora saw the opportunity, remembered that lemon bra in her drawer and decided to see how panicked she could make her followers... or maybe that "J" stands for something other than Jay Z. Or maybe it's not a "J" at all. As seen in another photo of Ora on Jezebel, she is wearing an "R" necklace, which really looks like the "J" necklace turned around. Perhaps her Snapchat flipped things around or she had it on backwards.
Either way, it seems pretty obvious the Becky witch hunt isn't ending anytime soon. After all the intimate details Lemonade may have dropped about Beyoncé and Jay Z's relationship, I know I'm itching for more.
Bustle has reached out to reps for Beyoncé, Jay Z, Roy, and Ora for comment on the cheating rumors, but has not yet heard back.
