Wait, hold on…did we miss something? We can totally understand why Rita Ora would be wearing a ‘Not Becky’ pin after the Met Gala — she was, after all, accused of being the mystery woman on Beyonce’s album — but why was Katy Perry rockin’ the same bling?!
Rita Ora, 25, and Katy Perry, 31, were totally matchy-matchy at the Met Gala after-party — at least when it came to one funny accessory. The ladies wore matching ‘Not Becky’ pins, but we have to wonder…were they shading Beyonce, 34, for causing so much drama by using this mysterious name while singing about cheating on her album Lemonade?!
We saw pics of Rita wearing this pin earlier, but now, photos have surfaced of Katy rockin’ it on her black and gold-printed, off-the shoulder after-party dress, too! The British singer referencing the Becky drama makes sense — she’s had to deny being the alleged ‘other woman’ mentioned on Bey’s album. However, we can’t quite figure out where Katy wearing it fits into all this?
The 31-year-old has a good sense of humor, so perhaps she just wore it to be funny since “Becky with the good hair” literally went viral after Bey’s album Lemonade dropped on April 23. Or maybe she was just supporting Rita? Or maybe she just really wanted to make sure we knew she’s not Becky, guys!
These two ladies teaming up is interesting, though — remember, Rita used to date Calvin Harris, 32, who’s now in a blissful relationship with Taylor Swift, 26, who just so happens to be Katy’s arch-nemesis. The “New Romantics” singer was also at the Met Gala, but we can bet she did everything in her power to avoid an awkward run-in with either of these gals!
As for the relationship between Rita and Beyonce…things seem to be going A-ok on that front. The 25-year-old proved she definitely isn’t Becky by posing for a photo with Bey on Snapchat and captioning it, “Family.” See guys, no drama here!
Don’t think we didn’t notice that Rachel Roy, 42, the other “Becky” suspect, wasn’t in attendance at the Met, though! AND Jay Z, 46, also didn’t come with his wife, although they’ve been seen together looking happy more than once since Lemonade dropped. Are you guys following this?!
What do you think of Katy and Rita wearing these pins, HollywoodLifers? Do you think they’re shading Beyonce?
