Rita Ora: My mother thinks Beyonce's a 'bad bitch'

Rita Ora's mother thinks Beyonce is "bad bitch".

The 'Poison' hitmaker has admitted she was left embarrassed when she flew to New York to audition for Jay Z's label Roc Nation in 2009 when her mother made a very honest remark about his wife Beyonce.

She told We Love Pop magazine: "My mum's so embarrassing around Jay Z and Beyonce, talking about nappy rashes when I was a baby!

"She also said to Jay, 'Did you sing you've got 99 problems and a bitch ain't one?' He said, 'Yeah' so mum goes, 'You've got the baddest bitch', and points at Beyonce."

Meanwhile, after another awkward meet-up, the 24-year-old singer was criticised for her public display of affection for her boss, when she was spotted wrapping her arms around him from behind.

But 'The X Factor' judge recently denied she has a man-eater reputation.

She said: "I don't understand why [people] all have to give me this title. It's not true. I'm actually a very pure, innocent soul. Shall I say thanks?

"I think sometimes, when you have a woman that has a motive and is career-driven, it becomes intimidating."
