Rita Ora recently opened up in a new interview where she spoke on the rumors that she was the ‘Becky’ that Beyonce called out on her Lemonade album as the woman who Jay-Z had an affair with.
Of course, there has been plenty of speculation over who Beyonce could have been talking about – but one-time Roc Nation singer, and Jay-Z prodigy, Rita has often found her name in the frame.
Rita began by alleging that her time at Roc nation was tarnished by sexism, saying:
‘I want to find the right word here, and maybe this is my interpretation, but I do feel I got discriminated against because I was a woman. I almost felt – maybe this is just my interpretation – I could have had a better chance if I’d been male.’
It was then that Rita addressed the rumors that she was the ‘Becky with the good hair,’ saying:
“Hey, all I want to say to that is, dude, if I were Becky with the good hair, wouldn’t I actually have to have good hair? Look at it. It’s all weave and extensions.”
She went on to call Beyonce as the ‘nicest, bestest person,’ adding:
“Nobody can ever say anything wrong about that woman in front of me. I get emotional just talking about it.”
