Earlier this week, Ora’s ex-boyfriend Rob Kardashian went on a Twitter rant about how a “new artist” whom he’d been dating had cheated while unprotected with “20 dudes” during their relationship. For which Ora was called “Rita Whora” on Twitter and about which Kardashian is backpedaling today claiming he never called out Ora by name.
Inside the issue though, Ora admits she’s no longer dating Kardashian, she was an absentee girlfriend, and she has serious commitment issues.
On her music career: “It’s been an amazing few months. I feel like a gangster; like the Don in a Mafia flick… From the outside it can look as though everything happened overnight for me, but when it did start happening, it happened very quickly.”
On her new found fame: ”This girl came up and said ‘Rita, I love your song,’ and it felt so good. That was the best Big Mac I’ve ever eaten. Now I get recognized a lot more, but that’s okay. In fact, it’s great.”
On getting compared to Rihanna: ”It’s just so unnecessary. The most unnecessary thing I’ve ever heard, actually. I mean, last time I checked, I’ve been blonde since I was 14 years old. My inspiration has always been from old-school, classic women, so I don’t take any notice of that.”
On meeting Rihanna: “She’s fun to hang out with. Don’t get me wrong: I see nothing but great times, but I think it’s time to move on now.”
On meeting Beyonce: ”She was my idol and suddenly there we were, sitting down together. She was the nicest, gentlest, most humble woman. There’s something really calming about talking to her. She gave me the best piece of advice anyone’s ever given me about this job ‘Keep your family close.’”
On how love scares her: “I think it’s my only weakness. I’m scared of letting my guard down, and if I fell in love with someone now, he’d have to try ten times harder to break it down.”
On splitting from Rob Kardashian: ”I’m not going out with Rob. We were close for a while, but it didn’t work because I was never there. I was like a ghost. I used to get so frustrated with myself and then wonder why I was angry, so I decided it was best to keep it friendly, especially at the moment, when there’s so much going on.”
On if anyone tired to change her image: “I never even let them have a conversation with me about it. I’m not interested in other people’s opinions about my clothes. I don’t believe in this idea that you have to look a certain way to be famous.” - via Glamour UK Magazine.
