British pop princess Rita Ora covers the December issue of Cosmopolitan, available on newsstands nationwide November 4th. The singer opens up to the magazine about her music, sex and dating, and loving her body.

Check out the highlights from the interview below:

On Ora’s recent breakup with DJ/producer Calvin Harris:
“It was the right guy at the wrong time. I was about to start a tour, and he was also all over the place. There’s only so much you can do when you don’t see each other. I really admire people who have long-distance relationships. It’s an incredible achievement. I couldn’t do it.”

On Iggy Azalea’s feminist anthem “Black Widow,” in which Ora is featured:
“As soon as I heard it, I was like, ‘This is the fucking song.’ Katy Perry cowrote it – it felt nice to have all women involved.”

On her sexuality:
“I’m very proud to say that I think about sex. It’s what everybody thinks about, whether they say it or not. For me, sex is a form of getting to know a person – feeling someone’s skin.”

On loving her body:
“You have to come to terms with loving your body. Stand naked in front of the mirror and say, ‘I’m fucking sexy.’ That’s where it starts.”

On Current Boyfriend Calvin Harris:
“There are so many things. The fact that he got something out of me that I never thought I had. Yes, like falling in love. I just didn’t think I had it. I’d never experienced it before. And I was just like in the wilderness thinking, ‘Will it ever happen?'”

On her new album:
“I didn’t know what the f*ck I was doing on my first album. Let’s be honest. I was a kid having the time of my life. And I made a party album – party and bullsh*t. This time I’m still having a great time, but I’m in a great, loving place. Now I want people to see you can have fun and be in love at the same time.”

On her famous tattoo:
“This is Rosetta. It’s based on an original piece by Alberto Vargas, who was an incredible illustrator in the 1930s. He was one of the creators of the pin-up image. That’s our build, our power. That’s why I was obsessed with it; learning what men don’t understand about women and what women don’t understand about men. I was obsessed with the painting a long time ago, and then I got it done six months ago. I just love pretty things, whether it is art, a song or a pair of shoes.”

I must have been living under a rock because I sure didn’t know that Rita Ora was dating Calvin Harris. I thought she was still reeling from her breakup from Rob Kardashian. Eye roll.

Rita Ora Gets Her Elle On

Rita-Ora-Elle

Watch out for Rita Ora, ELLE’s May Women in Music issue cover. Wearing Chanel, Dior, Valentino and more, the British pop sensation was photographed in London and opens up about her personal style and even her childhood idols, the Spice Girls. Check out the highlights from the issue below.

On never allowing her record label to dictate her style:

“That should never be allowed! It’s like somebody telling you what to sing.”

On her childhood idols, the Spice Girls:

“I just remember watching them – not even meeting them – and I was completely mesmerized. It feels great to meet someone who is not human, but is.”

On scoring that red Marchesa gown she wore to the 2012 MTV Europe Music Awards:

“I went up to [Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman] and said, ‘Hi, I’m Rita. Nice to meet you. I need to wear your dress.’ She was like, ‘What dress?’ They’ve got 10 million dresses. I said, ‘Look, I have your dress as the screen saver on my phone. This red dress needs to be on my body.’”

On her 2009 “big break” with artist Jay-Z who signed her to his label:

“I didn’t think in a million years that I’d fly to New York to meet one of the biggest music moguls of our time.”

Rob Kardashian Explains Rita Ora Tweets

1361204895_rob-kardashian-rita-ora-lg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Two months ago Rob Kardashian accused Rita Ora of cheating on him with “nearly 20 dudes” on a public Twitter rant that went viral. A few nights ago on an episode of Kourtney & Kim Take Miami, the reality star defended his behavior.

Though his big sisters warned him to stop bashing Rita online, Rob was quite clear that he wasn’t sorry for what he did. “I posted what I posted to keep myself from taking her back. Every time she messed up, I took her back for over a year now,” he explained. “I just had to do that to make her hate me.”

All Kardashian sisters, Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe, weighed in on the relationship during the episode. “Rob just got out of a really weird relationship. They were actually together for about a year but Rob was never allowed to admit that they were actually an item,” Khloe said of his relationship with the British pop star. “Because she’s in the entertainment industry, she wanted to present herself to the world as a single girl.” She also added, “I think Rob got really depressed through this relationship.”

Kourtney believed that his actions might make him seem like the bad guy in the relationship, telling Rob “She’s the one who’s in the wrong but she’ll probably try to make it like you’re in the wrong for posting it. “It’s getting so ugly,” she continued in a confessional. “Instead of dealing with it privately, it’s just becoming a public matter now.”

Apparently Rob gained 40 pounds while dating Rita (I wish I WOULD gain weight just from being in a relationship with someone!). Though he didn’t apologize for the tweets, he did say, “I don’t want people to think I’m being a bitch.” Being a guy and going on a tirade on Twitter about how your ex slept aroud may make you seem that way.

Kim kept it real with him: “There’s just no point [in tweeting]. You loved her for a reason. You aren’t together for a reason now,” she reminded him. “You just always have to take the high road.”

I agree with both Kourtney and Kim. This issue needs to be dealt with off camera and off social networks, or not spoken about at all. We’ll never know the full story, but it’s time Rob gets over it and moves on.

Ri-ho-ho vs. Rita Whora

And in the latest edition of When PopTrix Attack
There clearly is no contest here, but for the sake of argument, let’s pretend that there is, so I can throw in a few funny lines.

So it seems as if Rita Ora, the obvious ho of the week, is trying to distance herself from her former friend, Rihanna. Now, if you were to ask me, Rita Ora is basically Rihanna’s stunt double. One of them is a multi-platinum, Grammy Award winning pop singer. The other one?

Well, she’s dating Kardashians and looking for anyway to cling to her 15 minutes of fame. Now, I know Rihanna may be a bad role model, may like to get knocked upside the head by possibly closeted homosexual men and flash her ass and titty balls on Twitter from time to time, but hey…

There’s only room for ONE Rihanna! Do not accept any substitutes!

Here is what Rita had to say about her now un-friend…

“Rihanna is cool and fun but we couldn’t be more different. She is from Barbados and I am from Kosovo and that should say it all really.”

And it does, Rita. It does. Because Kosovo is not exactly the place where they have diamonds pouring from the damn sky, is it? No wonder she ran after a Kardashian. The problem is that she ran after the wrong one. Any Kardashian has more earning potential and clout than Rob. Hell, Rita should have pulled a Mary Kay Letourneau and waited for Kylie or Kendall to hit 18 and hit them up for money!

I have only one thing to say to Ms. Whora. Good luck on your future of touring middle Eastern countries in scantily clad clothes in the middle of the winter. That is your future, trick!

WTF of the Day: Rihanna and Rob Kardashian

File this one under: Rihanna Will Date Anyone

When I read this news and told my friends about it, the first thing they said to me was that they’d rather deflect bullets/body blows/vats of spit than be with the ‘ugly one’ from the Kardashian clan. And although I am not one to condone violence, I would definitely say that this is a step down for the pop star. She’s been linked to some hot men in the past, so why risk your stock by even possibly getting linked with this douche bag?

Well, according to reports, Rihanna spent this past Saturday with the Kardashian that truly does nothing. Instead of throwing her poon at true Hollywood heavyweights that would be glad to spend it with such a gorgeous girl, she threw caution to the wind and decided to do lower her worth and share her hotness with the tired and triflin’. The two spent time racing go-karts and hitting up the Playhouse in Hollywood.

What is even more interesting is that Rob Kardashian is allegedly dating pop singer Rita Ora, or as I like to call her, Rihanna’s stunt double. And before you ask how does a guy this facially un-blessed get hot women, remember how much money his sisters made last year in their assorted efforts at fame whoring. Further proof that life is not fair.

Rita Ora Says Beyonce Is An Alien!

Rita Ora is quickly becoming a household name and she can thank Jay-Z and Beyonce for that. The singer is now gracing the pages of Glamour magazine’s August 2012 issue and now only is showing off her amazing beauty but she shares some details about her relationship with her ROC boss Jay-Z and Beyonce. We’ve got the highlights from the interview and the photos from the shoot below.

Peep them!

ON BEYONCE:

“Destiny’s Child was my band. I was nearly choking when I met Beyonce, but she is the nicest. I call her an alien because I’m like, “How do you do everything at once? You can’t be human.”

ON MEETING JAY-Z FOR THE FIRST TIME:

“I was straight off the plane from London with rained-on hair! I think if I’d known that I’d be meeting him, I would have freaked out. Now he’s like my brother.”

ON HER ALREADY DISTINCT LOOK AS A NEW ARTIST:

“I walked into this industry blond with red lips, and I will leave this industry blond with red lips. Mark my words.”

ON RUMORS THAT SHE IS DATING ROB KARDASHIAN:

“Rob makes their lives public. Me? I’m very private. He’s a great friend. But the only relationship I’m having is with the tour bus.”

Rita Ora is a new British singer, songwriter and actress signed with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation label. Not only does she love Madonna but she also loves Gwen Stefani (surprise, surprise) AND Aaliyah.
