Despite the Beyhive hating on her hard, Rita Ora isn't shying away from the controversy surrounding Lemonade and the woman Beyoncé seems to have identified as Jay Z's extra-marital lover.

Like Rachel Roy before her, the British singer emerged as a potential candidate to be "Becky with the good hair" on the track "Sorry." Ora posted a Snapchat that showed her wearing a lemon-embroidered bra and a "J" initial necklace. Ever since, the Beyhive have been hitting her with bee and lemon emojis and comments like "Rita Whora." It's getting ugly out there.

Ora has yet to make a public comment regarding the allegations. She is making a major sartorial statement, however. Today she stepped out wearing the red Gucci dress which Beyoncé wore in her "Formation" video. Coincidence? Is a dress just a dress, or have shots been fired?

Here's Rita.


Here's Bey.

Here's the internet.
