"If I were Becky with the good hair, wouldn't I actually have to have good hair?"
On her track ‘Sorry’ from 2016’s ‘Lemonade’, Beyoncé famously addressed Jay-Z‘s infidelity, saying: “He only want me when I’m not there / He better call Becky with the good hair”. The lyrics led to fans speculating about who the pseudonymous “Becky” could be.
Speaking in a new interview with The Sunday Times, Ora said: “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.”
The singer also described Beyoncé 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.”
Rita Ora previously addressed the speculation that she might be “Becky”, saying in 2016: “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.”
Ora also tweeted earlier that year: “I never usually address tabloid gossip but let me be clear, these rumours are false. I have nothing but the utmost respect for Beyoncé. Let’s continue enjoying Lemonade.”
