Twelve hours ago, the Beyhive was focusing their outrage on Rachel Roy. They believed Rachel Roy was THE ONE. Roy was Becky With the Good Hair, according to the Beyhive-Mind. My thought was… Rachel Roy could be one of several Beckys with the Good Hair and Roy was just the one unfortunate enough to Instagram a photo caption about “good hair.” I mean, if you believe that Jay-Z cheats on Beyonce, is it that much of a stretch to believe that he has several good-hair sidepieces, to use Beyonce’s exact language? Well, the Beyhive has focused their outrage on yet another Becky candidate: Rita Ora.
The thing with Rita Ora seems somewhat convoluted, but just know… there have been rumors about Jay-Z with nearly every woman he works with, mentors or has any kind of professional connection with. Rita Ora was signed to Jay’s Roc Nation, but she filed a complaint last year, claiming that Roc Nation wasn’t properly managing her career. Roc Nation then sued Rita for breach of contract, because she’s only delivered one album in eight years when she had a contract for five albums. Roc Nation is also on the hook for the $2 million it took to “develop” her look and sound, both of which are widely believed to be “Budget Rihanna.” So… there’s a tortured history between Jay and Rita. But does that mean that she’s Becky? Or one of several Beckys?
The evidence that she’s a Becky is circumstantial – over the weekend, Rita Ora posted this on Snapchat (it was captured by a dedicated member of the Beyhive):
Rita Ora: Becky With The Good Hair! . . By now you've heard all about Beyonce's album and all the name calling that followed. Well, if you're #beyhive , then know that Rachel Roy is not "Becky with the good hair!" And no that does not exclude the possibility of Jay messing with Rachel; it just means Rachel is not as important to Jay Z as she'd like to think. . . Rita Ora is more likely to be Becky! And her picture points us in her direction. In this snapchat clip which she has deleted, Rita dons a yellow bikini embellished with lemonades! Guess whose album is named lemonade? And if you think that pendant was not intentionally flipped to look like a "J" maybe you need lesson 101 on how sidechicks roll! I don't see a twist in that chain. Rita knew what Bey's album would be called. The clues are too loud and one too may to be coincidence! . . There is a possibility that Jay is indeed in love with Rita and the bish knows her power. Too bad… Cos there aint gonna be two queen Beys! Over to you Beyhive. #lemonade #beyonce #jayz #ritaora #rachelroy #rihanna #bey #queenbey
So messy. The Beyhive is currently swarming on Rita’s social media, flooding every photo with bee and lemon emojis. Which… I don’t know, I actually think that’s really funny. Fighting your battles with emojis is actually pretty great. And not only that, but Rita was just wandering around West Hollywood in the same Gucci outfit that Beyonce wore in the “Formation” video. Girl, you in danger!! SHUT IT DOWN, RITA.
Now… I realize that the whole point of this exercise, from Beyonce’s point of view, is to sell albums. But at some point she has to say something to her fans, right? At some point, she has to actually make a public statement asking her fans to stop going after the Beckys, right?
