Rita Ora Doesn’t Give a S**t What You Think of Her
On what people think of her: She tells me I can ask “what the f— I like.” She doesn’t “give two sh-ts about anyone’s opinion. This is who I am. Eat it.”
On her career: “When I started I was only 17. I was overwhelmed with the power of men in the industry and the thinking that you have to fulfil somebody’s image. Obviously I love my record label. [My first album] was an amazing success but I wasn’t completely satisfied because I’d listened to a lot of men. I accepted tracks [they wanted] because, you know, it was a ‘legendary writer’ or something. This time, I feel more comfortable in my skin. I’m 23 and I’ve experienced a bit more. I’ve actually had fights about tracks that were not being approved by the label. Now I’m like, ‘I don’t care who wrote it’. And when someone says, ‘no this isn’t right,’ I say, ‘no this is f—ing right because it’s my album. That’s me being brutally honest.”
On feminism: “That’s the perfect description. I am a woman, I’m outspoken and I support other females. I love what men do in the world but women have equal power.”
Last night (September 04, 2014) Rita attended her Adidas Collection launch party at Mode Club and was spotted leaving the party with her boyfriend Richard Hilfiger. Launch the gallery above to see more photos of Rita and Richard.
