At last night’s Met Gala, potential Becky/US celebrity Rita Ora barged through the front doors of the Metropolitan Museum of Art after flashing Anna Wintour a napkin on which she scribbled “MET GALA TICKET” in red lipstick and waded through the piles of glamorous robots until finally reaching Our Lady in Latex, Beyoncé Knowles.
She asked for a selfie, took a selfie, and published it to Snapchat—effectively slaughtering every rumor that she is, in fact, “Becky with the good hair” from Beyoncé’s “Sorry.”
Let’s recount her journey to that narrative-changing selfie.
Here’s Rita’s view shortly after convincing security guards she was very famous on other continents.
She then found a table with an empty chair. Here she is sitting across from Vera Wang, whom she just met.
Eventually, she worked up the nerve to ask for a selfie with Wang. After it was taken, she asked, “Why are you doing this? Are you Halsey?”
Ora then moved to the galleries, where she looked at art. Thinking she was art, Jaden Smith studied her.
Bathroom time! Ora visited the ladies room, where she took a selfie with Dakota Johnson after spending a few minutes convincing her that she, too, was in Fifty Shades of Grey.
She then ran into a Fanning sister. Unsure of her name, she took a guess in the caption.
After leaving the bathroom, she saw her target, took a deep breath, and approached.
Would the real Becky have had the nerve to approach Beyoncé Knowles and ask for a selfie? I doubt it. After Ora walked away, Beyonce turned to her sister Solange and asked, “Who just took a photo with me?”
Solange shrugged. “Halsey?”
Sinead O’Connor, whose most popular song was written by Prince, claims to have called the cops on a celebrity she claims provided the late musician with drugs “over the decades,” and I doubt you’ll guess who that celebrity is.
Have a guess?
OK. Read her Facebook post to find out if you were right!
Two words for the DEA investigating where Prince got his drugs over the decades.... Arsenio Hall (AKA Prince’s and Eddie Murphy’s bitch) Anyone imagining Prince was not a long time hard drug user is living in a cloud cuckoo land. Arsenio I’ve reported you to the Carver County Sherrif’s [sic] office. Expect their call. They are aware you spiked me years ago at Eddie murphy’s house. You best get tidying your man cave.
This Mariah Carey interview is sort of a riot.
“Traditional? It’s my third wedding, whatever. I don’t mean whatever. Obviously, I’ve been married and so has he. So we’re both sort of normal about it.”
