Rita Ora Has Upset 'Grateful Songwriter for Not Promoting It

Rita Ora steps out wearing a sweater with a naughty word on it while heading out for the afternoon on Friday (February 13) in London, England.

The 24-year-old singer was seen that day in a total black outfit, as well as the night before in shimmering metallic dress.

Rita, who will be performing the Oscar-nominated song “Grateful” from Beyond the Lights at the Oscars next weekend, is being slammed by the songwriter Diane Warren for not promoting the track.

“It’s a little frustrating,” Diane said (via Billboard). “It’s like, there’s no support. She’s going to sing for, what, a billion people? What an opportunity! And she tweeted about it twice. I’m like, ‘Really?’”

“They’re not doing anything,” she added. “I’m just scratching my head. I’ve never had a song from a movie that this has happened with. I could see them not putting it out before the nomination — because you never know — but once you’re nominated, what the f–? It’s the sloppiest thing I’ve ever seen.”

FYI: Rita is wearing an Enfants Riches Déprimés sweater.

    best not to piss off one of the best songwriters ever. Between this and Calvin Harris nobody will want to work with her.
