Rita Ora teaches us how to look effortlessly fierce on the December 2014 cover of Cosmopolitan magazine.
The 23 year old singer/songwriter/actress talks sexuality, feminism and body image with the magazine. Rita’s set to star in the highly anticipated movie ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’ where I’m sure she has no problem expressing her sexuality. But even without the movie, Rita always oozes sex appeal whether she’s on stage or photographed running errands.
Rita is currently dating Ricky Hilfiger (Tommy Hilfiger’s son), but before him she was with producer Calvin Harris who she ended up having a not so good breakup with. She opened up to the mag about their split!
On her breakup with 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 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 f*cking sexy.’ That’s where it starts.”
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.”
