Rita Ora Looks Up to Jay Z, Beyonce, & Victoria Beckham

Rita Ora Looks Up to Jay Z, Beyonce, & Victoria Beckham

Rita Ora takes the cover of Cosmopolitan magazine’s September 2016 issue, on newsstands August 3.

Here’s what the 25-year-old entertainer had to share:

On famous people who inspire her: “There are people I respect strictly for their hustling business purposes. Victoria Beckham for one. She’s an incredible inspiration and I love her stuff. And she came from the Spice Girls – major! Jay is one of my idols and Beyoncé is obviously the queen of life. I’ll never not appreciate the experience I have had with them and the things I’ve seen. They’ve been great mentors. I look up to them a lot.”

On sexism in the music industry: “Things would be said differently and conversations would be taken outside (the room) only because I am a woman.”

On suffering from anxiety: “I’m not scared to admit I’ve had therapy. I have someone I speak to once a week. People suffer from it in different ways, but for me it’s more about thinking about the long-term goal. I’m a very ‘in the moment’ person, so if I have to do something there and then, I’ll be fine. But if I think about it, that’s when anxious thoughts start going on.”

The full interview appears in the September 2016 issue of Cosmopolitan UK, on sale August 3. For more from Rita, visit Cosmopolitan.co.uk.
