Rita Ora Covers 'Elle' Women in Music's May 2013 Issue
Here’s what the 22-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:
On her childhood idols, the Spice Girls: “I just remember watching them – not even meeting them – and I was completely mesmerized. It feels great to meet someone who is not human, but is.”
On meeting Jay-Z in 2009 after her ‘big break’: “I didn’t think in a million years that I’d fly to New York to meet one of the biggest music moguls of our time.”
On not allowing her label dictate her music: “That should never be allowed! It’s like somebody telling you what to sing.”
On her Marchesa MTV EMA dress: “I went up to [Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman] and said, ‘Hi, I’m Rita. Nice to meet you. I need to wear your dress.’ She was like, ‘What dress?’ They’ve got 10 million dresses. I said, ‘Look, I have your dress as the screen saver on my phone. This red dress needs to be on my body.’”
