Will the real Good Hair Becky please stand up? One day after speculation ran rampant that designer Rachel Roy (not chef Rachael Ray) was the "Becky with the good hair" Beyoncé was singing about in the song "Sorry" from her visual album Lemonade, people are wondering if said Becky might actually be British singer Rita Ora. All right, Beyhive, Becky witch hunt—GO!
This hypothesis was not reached through complicated detective work on the part of the fans—Ora threw herself into the mix on Monday by posting a Snapchat photo of herself in a bralette (for people who don't know: a bralette is basically a bra, but without any actual support) decorated with lemons and a necklace with the initial J (for Jay Z? Jezebel? Jazzy Jeff?).
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

Ora signed to Jay Z's record label Roc Nation in 2008, but in December she filed a lawsuit against the label, seeking to be freed from the contract and citing Mr. Z's developing interests in other endeavors, like sports management and the music streaming service Tidal. She also claimed that Rihanna was offered hit tracks before her, and that her "relationship with Roc Nation is irrevocably damaged." In February, Roc Nation sued Ora right back, claiming that they'd already spent $2.3 million on her second album, which never materialized.
So is Rita Ora Becky? Or is it Rachel Roy? Could it be Becky from Empire? Becky from Roseanne (she had some pretty great hair)? Who will wear the lemons and hold the Becky sceptre next?
