Earlier this year, Rita Ora was accused of being Jay Z’s mistress following the release of Beyonce’s latest album, Lemonade. The pop star immediately denied the accusations and now, Ora is getting candid about how she felt being named “Becky with the good hair,” a lyric from Beyonce’s track, “Sorry.”
Rita opened up to Vanity Fair about the recent controversy, explaining that, “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.”
The 25-year-old was initially accused of being Jay’s side piece after a photo resurfaced of the singer wearing a lemonade bra and a J chain.
Not only did Ora make it clear via social media that the rumors were false, the star also made as statement during the Met Gala after party when she and Katy Perry both jokingly wore pins that read, “Not Becky.”
“That [pin] was a present from Katy Perry,” she explained. “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.”
Ora recently signed a deal with Atlantic Records UK and is hosting VH1’s America’s Next Top Model.
Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves
To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.
But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.
“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”
In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.
When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”
Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”
Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
