Rita Ora garnered herself a little added exposure by covering the Autumn/Winter 2012 issue of Rollacoaster magazine. The 21-year-old “Hot Right Now” hitmaker brought her chic self to the UK publication’s front page while dishing about topics including the seemingly endless Rihanna comparisons and shortening up her ‘do.
Highlights from Miss Ora’s interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Rollacoaster!
On her first album:
“This album, to me, was just about making people feel happy. I wasn’t going through any kind of heartbreak, so I didn’t want to write about that. But in this next album, I am. I think I’m going through a heartbreak right now.”
On chopping off her locks:
“I just wanted to cut it off. I love wigs, so I was like, ‘We could just wear wigs if we wanted to do big and curly.’ I don’t mind telling people I wear wigs. It’s more about the character that you are and the industry you’re in. You think Gaga’s hair is real?”
On Rihanna comparisons:
“To tell you the truth, I don’t really care. My music’s different, we sing different, we’re from different parts of the world. We’ve seen each other lots of times and we hang out. So if people are trying to create a feud, it’s not going to work. Even if that was the case, Roc [Nation] would be like, ‘What are you guys doing? You’re part of the same family!’”
On Rob Kardashian relationship rumors:
“We’re really good friends. Right now, it wouldn’t be fair to be in a relationship. I don’t have any time, I wouldn’t even want to do that to someone.”
