Rita Ora wants back in the Beyhive.

In April, the 25-year-old pop star was accused of being the woman Beyonce calls "Becky with the good hair" in her song, "Sorry." Ora has vehemently denied she's "Becky," and Queen Bey has never revealed whom she's singing about.

Prior to the Lemonade drama, Ora exchanged lawsuits with Jay Z's record label, Roc Nation, over the release of her music. They eventually came to a settlement in May.

Despite all this, Ora says she has no ill will towards Beyonce and her husband. In fact, she calls them "great mentors."

"I'm still happy I've had this incredible experience," she tells Cosmopolitan UK magazine. "I'll never not appreciate the experience I had with them and the things I've seen."

Gushing over the power couple, she insists, "Jay is one of my idols and Beyonce is obviously the queen of life."

  Ora adds, "I look up to them a lot."

As for the recent reports about Ora's ex-boyfriend, Calvin Harris, breaking up with Taylor Swift, she says simply, "I hate being defined in relationships."

Fans are about to see a lot more of Ora when she starts hosting America's Next Top Model, and her predecessor, Tyra Banks, couldn't be more thrilled. “I love her,” Banks told ET. “She was like, ‘Tyra, I don’t want to fill your shoes, I want to create my own shoes.’ So I was like, ‘I got you boo.’”
