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.

“And before the wedding of the year takes place between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Lifetime will debut a movie revealing how the stars aligned for this royal romance,” said Lifetime’s head of programming Liz Gateley.

Harry & Meghan: The Royal Love Story  (working title) will trace Prince Harry and Markle’s relationship from the day they met to the overwhelming media attention surrounding their eventual engagement, which was announced in November. It will also touch on their courtship after they were set up by mutual friends and depict Markle’s life as a divorced American actress.

Menhaj Huda, who helmed an episode of E!’s fictional Royal Family series The Royals is on hand to direct. Casting is currently underway.

No official date has been announced, but given Lifetime’s track record, fans should expect the movie to release a few days before the couples May 19 wedding. Back in 2011, Lifetime aired William & Kate: The Movie just days before the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge married on April 29.
