Rita Ora: 'I'd Love to Be the Female Kanye West'

Rita Ora rocks a bespoke bomber jacket on the cover of Asos Magazine‘s September 2012 issue, on newsstands July 30.

Here is what the 21-year-old “How We Do (Party)” singer had to share with the mag:

On her style inspiration: “I always thought Gwen Stefani was so cool. I think I’m man enough to admit she made me want to wear red lipstick. When I saw it on her, I thought she was the prettiest person in the world.”

On media’s eagerness to label her “the next Rihanna: “It’s a great comparison but I don’t think about it. When the album’s out, it’s going to separate me from that, without me having to say anything.”

On Kanye West: “He’s one of my fashion icons. I’d love to be the female Kanye. I think he’s so cool and effortless.”

    lol you wish rita

  • pp

    just not as much of an a-hole, though – - – really like her music + personality.. she doesn’t come off like a jerk in interviews.

  • Susan

    She’s such a nice girl. I love her. Cant wait for Ora.

  • Guy

    She wants to be a female d-bag who doesn’t know how to behave at public events (especially televised ones)?

  • ack

    @Guy: she was referring to his fashion (read her comment).. the header comes off like she wants to be that di*ck

  • Tisha

    Kanye is a supreme jerk, and professional jacka** but he’s talented. Bad choice of words Rita, but I know what she meant. She’s at least trying to act like a lady, which is rare among the pop tarts today.

  • NIKI
