Rita Ora Confirms Calvin Harris Blocked Her Teen Choice Awards Performance

Rita Ora has confirmed that she was not able to perform her song “I Will Never Let You Down” at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards because her ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris wouldn’t let her.

“For anybody who doesn’t understand how it works, he wrote and produced the song,” the 23-year-old singer said during an interview with Ryan Seacrest. “So he has to approve anything TV-wise for anybody who doesn’t get it. And obviously he owns the rights to it and he didn’t approve the Teen Choice Awards.”

“It wasn’t a surprise,” Rita added. “I was scheduled to perform and all my friends were texting me and we put a lot of work and effort into the show. Every time I do a show, I rehearse about a month in advance… I could have been told a few weeks earlier. That would have been nice. It was a last minute change, but you know what? It happens and we move on.”

    If it wasnt a surprise then why you chose to perform that song? Why not take another song where you know you will get the permission to it.

    Not a nice thing to do. If he really moved on, there won’t be any bitterness on his part.

    @ladyb: It has nothing to do with being bitter when she kept cheating on him. He is mad at her and he has all right to be it.

    First of all if she chooses to sleep with other guys it’s her body. Unless they were married then it’s cheating.

    Second..he’s a freakin’ DJ. Have you see his videos he’s surrounded by beautiful girls and if anyone thinks he’s not taking advantage of the groupies that follow him are in some world of denials. DJs less known than him get free tang so please the idea that she cheated on him is a virtual joke in the music industry.

    @sweetness: unless they’re married, cheating is okay otherwise? You’re saying this as if they were just in a no strings attached sort of fling.. They were DATING. Have you been living under a rock? Yes, it’s the girl’s body but it’s ridiculous to condone her cheating and hurting someone’s feelings/love by sleeping with someone else. End the relationship if you’re so desperate to have a romp with someone else but sheesh, just because he’s in videos with girls it doesn’t mean he’s off having sex with other girls. Ignorant a**hole

    Ahahahaha please Says:

    @sweetness: Please girl everybody knows that she cheats on anybody, she doesnt care. And married or not, it is cheating if you are in a committed relationship. She should just stay single and do what she does anyway, without being in a relationship.
