Earlier this year former Roc Nation artist Rita Ora inserted herself into the Beyonce/Rachel Roy 'Becky with the Good Hair' scandal by posting cryptic memes on Instagram while sporting a Lemonade bra just as the scandal was reaching critical mass [click here and here if you missed that].
Now Rita blames pop star Katy Perry for getting her mixed up in the mess...
Rita tells Vanity Fair,
“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. Beyonce was one of my biggest idols growing up.”As for showing up to a Met Gala after-party wearing a ‘Not Becky’ badge Rita explains,
“That 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.”
