Rita Ora Covers 'InStyle UK' For First Time Ever

Rita Ora Covers 'InStyle UK' For First Time Ever

Rita Ora dons a red lip on the cover of InStyle UK magazine’s April 2015 issue, out on newsstands now!

On rejection: “I’ve been told ‘no’ so many times in my career. It doesn’t mean it’s over… I can remember every single ‘no’ I’ve been told in my life. They do not leave my brain. But they build you up.”

On her Fifty Shades of Grey role: “I heard about the audition and I approached Sam Taylor-Johnson with ideas for the soundtrack. I said I’d love to involved as I was such a fan of the book. And then Sam said, ‘Well, why don’t you audition?’ And I said, ‘Sure…I’ve got a few song ideas, I could send them over…’ and she said, ‘No, why don’t you audition for the movie?’ And I was like, ‘What?’ I’ve done a bit of acting, but honestly didn’t expect to be put into that role. I thought, what have I got to lose? I auditioned like everybody else – there were a lot of other people in the frame. I didn’t get any special treatment. I perfected my American accent, one thing led to another, and I got it.”

On being a coach on The Voice: “I said no straightaway. I love the show, but I wanted to focus on my second album. And then I spoke to Will [fellow judge Will.i.am], and he said ‘Listen, if you don’t do it, I won’t do it.’ It’s actually the best decision I’ve made. It’s so fun. I love it. I’m learning a lot about myself, being a coach. I’m starting to trust my instincts. When you’re sitting in that chair, you can’t ask what anyone thinks, you just have to do it.”
