Rita Ora Shines Bright on Cover of Evening Standard’s Music Issue
The blonde bombshell looks stunning in a beaded Roberto Cavalli suit jacket, Givenchy dress and studded Christian Louboutin stilettos. In another photo, Ora is wearing a stylish leather jacket, which covers her Wolford bodysuit.
In her interview, Ora addresses the ongoing rumors about her personal life and how she handles the gossip.
"Sharing my life with people is just part of my daily routine. But I don’t take any notice of the things people say -- it’s just white noise," she says. "I know the truth. I don’t feel I need to explain anything. Silence is the most powerful response. I know it’s contradictory to put yourself out there and then not want to deal with the responses, but that’s just how it is."
So why does Ora allow herself to be subjected to negativity in the media? "You can be forgotten very quickly,’ she says. ‘So I am aware that I need to stay current, keep connecting and keep bringing things to the table… otherwise you can just disappear."
Elsewhere in the interview, the 21-year-old artist has good things to say about her mentor and boss, Jay-Z. And even though the 'R.I.P.' singer is unlucky in love, watching him and Beyonce together has given her hope. "They are so in love," she says. "They made me believe that true love really does exist."
In the meantime, Ora is currently prepping songs for the U.S. version of her debut album, 'Ora,' which still has no release date as of yet. She recently shot a video in Thailand for her collaborative song with Snoop Dogg called 'Torn Apart.'
