Rita Ora for InStyle UK
February 22,2015 | Posted by Maria in Rita Ora | Comments (1)

Making her InStyle UK cover debut Rita Ora fills us in on what it’s like being a coach on The Voice plus why she remembers every single “no” she has been told in life. Plus check out the behind-the-scenes video below for an exclusive look at what really happened when we turned the camera on her…

On rejection:
‘I’ve been told “no” so many times in my career. It doesn’t mean it’s over… I can remember every single “no” I’ve been told in my life. They do not leave my brain. But they build you up.’

On her Fifty Shades of Grey role:
‘I heard about the audition and I approached Sam Taylor-Johnson with ideas for the soundtrack. I said I’d love to involved as I was such a fan of the book. And then Sam said, “Well, why don’t you audition?” And I said, “Sure…I’ve got a few song ideas, I could send them over…” and she said, “No, why don’t you audition for the movie?” And I was like, “What?” I’ve done a bit of acting, but honestly didn’t expect to be put into that role. I thought, what have I got to lose? I auditioned like everybody else – there were a lot of other people in the frame. I didn’t get any special treatment. I perfected my American accent, one thing led to another, and I got it.’

On being a coach on The Voice:
‘I said no straightaway. I love the show, but I wanted to focus on my second album. And then I spoke to Will [fellow judge Will.i.am], and he said “Listen, if you don’t do it, I won’t do it.” It’s actually the best decision I’ve made. It’s so fun. I love it. I’m learning a lot about myself, being a coach. I’m starting to trust my instincts. When you’re sitting in that chair, you can’t ask what anyone thinks, you just have to do it.’

Rita Ora for Nylon Magazine
February 12,2015 | Posted by Maria in News,PhotoShoot | Comments (1)

Rita Ora is our March cover star, and she’s about to be everywhere in a major way: In the three years since her first album dropped, she’s become an integral part of the music world—as well as a beauty and fashion icon in her own right, with roles in major films and modeling stints.

“With the first album, I was so hyped up to be signed with Jay Z,” she tells NYLON in our cover story. “I was like, ‘Whatever, Jay f*** Z!’ Two three years later, I was like, ‘You know what, people are actually interested in what I’m saying and how I’m dressing and how I’m acting.”

With her authentic, sassy attitude, punk energy, and seriously enviable style, Rita is the perfect girl for NYLON to launch into spring with. Here’s what to look forward to in our cover story.

On growing up: “Yeah, I grew up and I looked at my arse, and it got a bit bigger and I’m sexier now. Might as well flaunt it! I feel more womanly.”

On her role in the industry: “You have amazing girls like Emma Watson—glamorous, gorgeous, clean, beautiful girls. But where’s that punk energy—that fun, crazy, respected but still like, ‘Shit, she’s just doing her thing’ person? That’s who I am!”

On solidarity with women: “I’ve always been really outspoken about it, like telling another woman, ‘You killed it.’ I don’t think a lot of females do that these days, especially in this industry.”

On her crew: “It’s the same with all of my friends—with Charli, with Iggy, with Cara [Delevingne], and Katy Perry, who’s an amazing person inside and out and so talented, the biggest star in the world. She’s always been the same, and she’s just so funny and fun and loud and really cool. I’m like, ‘Yeah, that’s what I wanna be like! I wanna stay that way!’ You’ve gotta really be sacred with these friendships, ’cause people can corrupt them.”

On her upcoming album: “I wanted the album to be dark and sexy, but still approachable, because I’m not a dark person.”

NYLON’s March 2015 issue hits newsstands on Tuesday, February 24. (SOURCE)
