Beyonce to Rita Ora: WHO THE F–K DO YOU THINK I AM?

As you’re well aware by now, Beyoncé has a bone to pick with Jay Z, and she did so through her new album Lemonade which airs the famous couples’ dirty laundry through song, and the BeyHive is here to help.

On Saturday, Beyoncé premiered her hour-long visual album which featured 12 new songs with a harrowing narrative about infidelity. One of the lyrics in the record alludes to Jay Z cheating on a white woman: “He only want me when I’m not on there / He better call Becky with the good hair.”

The BeyHive believed Becky is a woman named Rachel Roy, a fashion designer and the ex-wife of Jay Z’s former friend and business partner, Damon Dash. Hours after Lemonade aired, Roy posted a message on Instagram that seemed to celebrate the rumors: “Good hair, don’t care, but we will take good lighting, for selfies, or self truths, always.” She since deleted the post and clarified to People in a new statement:

“I want to put the speculation and rumors to rest. My Instagram post was meant to be fun and lighthearted, it was misunderstood as something other than that. There is no validity to the idea that the song references me personally. There is no truth to the rumors.”

If not Roy, then who?

The BeyHive have their stingers aimed at singer Rita Ora now, who began working with Jay in 2008. Ora is embroiled in a legal battle with Jay because she feels the company pushed her aside to focus on representing professional athletes. Roc Nation countersued, claiming they spent over $2 million developing and marketing Ora’s still-unreleased second album, delivering only one of the five promised albums since 2008.

Unfortunately now, Ora is still making headlines as tabloid fodder rather than for her music. What’s “Body On Me?”

She posted and deleted a photo of her rocking a bikini top with lemons and a “J” pendant. The caption explains:

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

Even more interesting is Ora stepped out this week in the same exact outfit Beyonce wore in the “Formation” video:

In 2014 when the initial rumors surfaced of Ora and Jay, Ora told the hosts of Power 101.5’s The Breakfast Show, “Don’t you dare disrespect Beyoncé like that ever again in your entire life! You should know better than that. That’s just straight-up disrespect. You can’t even go there. That’s like, not even a question.”

Word of the wise to Jay Z: “You try this sit again? You gon’ lose your wife.”
