Rita Ora Sets The Record Straight On Those 'Becky' Rumors

Rita Ora took the time to dispel any rumors of her having an affair with Jay Z. 

It looks like the hunt for "Becky with the good hair" persists. This time the #BeyHive has put another celebrity in the hot seat: Rita Ora. Although the Hive accused the U.K. singer of having an affair with Jay Z, Rita set the record straight once and for all.

The "Black Widow" songstress took to Twitter to dispel any allegations that she's Becky. After Beyonce released her sixth studio album, Lemonade, which featured a single, "Sorry," that referenced a mysterious woman that might have come between her happy family, fans went on a wild goose chase. After accusing designer, Rachel Roy, and even getting cook, Rachel Ray caught in the crossfire, fans quickly moved on to another potential suspect.

"I never usually address tabloid gossip," Rita Ora tweeted, "but let me be clear, these rumours are false." And fans know that she would never overstep the Queen Bey she expressed her admiration for the "Formation" artist. "I have nothing but the utmost respect for Beyonce. Let’s continue enjoying Lemonade," she continued.

 

Rita has a long history with Jay Z and Beyonce, which may be why she was such an easy target. She signed to Jay Z's Roc Nation in 2008, and was originally thought of as the next to 'watch the throne.' Although the relationship turned sour when Rita filed a lawsuit against the label due to the lack of support, the relationship seemed to be just enough to raise some eyebrows.

In the light of her new drama with the Roc dynasty, the "Body On me"songstress  also posted a selfie on Snapchat, wearing lingerie with lemons on it. It's likely that Beyonce isn't paying ay mind to the controversy, but this might be a perfect way to get back in the BeyHive's good graces.

Check out Rita Ora's tweets and selfie here.

 

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 lemons! 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 many 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

Lizzo Reacts To Hillary Clinton's "Truth Hurts" Tweet

Lizzo’s “Truth Hurts” may be over two years old, but it’s proven to be her most impactful hit yet. The track gained steam after being featured in Netflix’s Someone Great, and currently sits at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100. It also garnered the attention of one of the biggest names in politics.

A video Lizzo posted on Twitter features Hillary Clinton and other former Presidential hopefuls standing and saluting the flag. While we may expect the National Anthem to play, “Truth Hurts” blares over the speaker instead.

Shortly after the video was posted, Hillary Clinton (or at least a very in-touch intern of hers) replied, tweeting out the song’s popular lyrics “I just took a DNA test, turns out…”

“@hillaryclinton just confirmed Truth Hurts is 100% the new national anthem... have a great day,” Lizzo wrote on Instagram.

The musician opened up about practically quitting music after “Truth Hurts” failed to take off initially.

“I remember thinking, ‘If I quit music now, nobody would notice. This is my best song ever, and nobody cares,’” she told PEOPLE. “I was like, ‘F**k it, I’m done.’ And a lot of people rallied; my producer, my publicist and my family, they were like, ‘Just keep going because this is the darkest before the dawn.'”

She also recently teased a remix to the song with DaBaby.

"I just took a DNA test, turns out..."

Drake Faces Lawsuits Over 'Nice For What' And 'In My Feelings'

A rapper by the name of Sam Skully is suing both Drake and Big Freedia for alleged use of his beat for the songs “In My Feelings” and “Nice For What.”

Per TMZ, Skully (real name Samuel Nicholas III) claims that a portion of his 2000’s song “Roll Call” was used in the popular song “In My Feelings.” He also alleges that “Nice For What,” which features Big Freedia, uses another one of his stolen beats.

“In the docs, Sam Skully claims he published the beat on a CD he released in New Orleans way back in 2000, but says he didn't know his work had been stolen until years later ... when Drake and Big Freedia released songs that started climbing the charts,” reports the site.

“Nice For What” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2018, as did “In My Feelings.” The latter track remained there for 10 weeks and was associated with the highly-popular “In My Feelings” challenge.

Skully is also reportedly suing Asylum Records, Cash Money Records and Republic Records for damages.
