Beauty queen, pop star, fashion icon—Rita Ora is taking over.
The controversial pop star, Rita Ora is Flare Magazine’s August 2014 cover girl! Rita has notably, over the years has steadily grown her appeal to fans.
Spotting her signature blonde locks in a short cut, the star channels various denim pieces from jackets, to shorts accessorised with bold jewels..
In the magazine, she opens up about her obsession with Instagram, saying, “I’m on it as soon as I wake up. I scroll with one eye open. It’s like a drug.” She also talked about her respect for fellow pop star Beyonce: “Beyoncé built her f–king foundation from the bottom. I think that’s the exact career every female artist wants to have.”Musically, Ora counts Gwen Stefani as an inspiration; with every loud pop anthem, the No Doubt singer evokes a whole album’s worth of emotions, inspiring Ora to mix her own soulful lyrics with booming hooks that broadcast her bravado.
Still, Rita recognizes that comparisons between women often detract from their individual accomplishments. (Ora, for instance, is regularly likened to Rihanna.) “There’s always competition. I definitely feel it. I thrive off of it. I love it. I don’t look at it as a competition, I look at it as a form of energy.”
In the interview however, we can’t help but notice that there’s no mention about her alleged past relationship with reality star Rob Kardashian. Ooops….
