Rita Ora Slams Jay Z Cheating Gossip as “Rude” & “Disrespectful To Women”


Rita Ora has hit out at those who felt that Beyoncé’s ‘Becky with the good hair’ lyric was aimed at her.

The lyric came from Bey’s ‘Lemonade’ and was about marital infidelity, leading some to believe that Beyoncé’s husband, Jay Z may have had a fling with Rita.


However, the British singer, who even sported a ‘Not Becky’ pin badge asserted:

“That [badge] was a present from Katy Perry. 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.”


Despite having left his Roc Nation label following a dispute earlier this year, Rita says she still thinks well of Jay Z:

“First and foremost, Jay Z is my inspiration and one of my idols – lyrically, musically, business-wise. I still look up to him and his wife every day. Beyoncé was one of my biggest idols growing up.”


Rita previously took to Twitter to address the rumors, tweeting:

What do you think? Has Rita been unfairly called out – or is it a case of no smoke without fire?
