Rita Ora is featured in the latest issue of VIBE magazine.
Here’s what the 21-yr-old british protégé of Jay-Z had to share:
On her personality:“I’ve always tried to be independent. It’s just my personality. I’ve always been the type to motivate the camp. I’ve always wanted to be the fuel for something—for music, the fuel for my family, the fuel for my best friend. Helping someone with what I’m doing.”
On her love for singing and music: “Music is a job that revolves around your personal emotions. So if it is personal, you might as well take it all the way. That’s what deﬁnes a musician versus a pop star, in my eyes. Jay, for example, he took it all the way within himself. He understood the personal touch you need to do to make an iconic record. That’s the shit I admire. Unafraid to be personal… At times I’m just like, ‘Yeah, you really do love music, innit?’”
