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.”
