Rita Ora Arrived at the VMAs and Twitter Thought She Was Beyoncé
Twitter flew into a frenzy tonight upon seeing some fuzzy, far-away snaps of a woman, sporting a blonde bob, walking the MTV Video Music Awards red carpet in a sparkly frock trailed by a head-turning long, feathered train.

But, soon enough, some started doubting that it was the Queen.

Rita Ora has a blonde bob on the red carpet…I was like “Is that Beyonce? No. Wait. Did Rihanna go BACK to the blonde bob??” So confused. — Twisted Sista (@aisling206) August 25, 2013
LOL I thought that was Beyonce at the VMAS, screencapped and put it on tumblr. Turns out it was Rita Ora. OOPS hahahahaha — Dan Broco (@DecodeDan) August 25, 2013
The whole mixup left the Beyhive in a bit of a fury as they spited Ora for ripping off Beyoncé’s signature style.
rita ora straight tryna copy beyonce — melina (@nouisbiceps) August 25, 2013
So not only did Rita Ora fail at the Beyonce bob, she failed at the Beyonce met gala dress. Girl, you look like charity make your way home.

In the end, there’s been no Beyoncé sighting. But there were rumors that she was spotted in sound check Sunday afternoon at the Barclays Center, where the awards show is taking place.
So, thankfully, there’s still some hope for a “Crazy in Love” duet from Bey and Jay.
