Rita Ora heads into the BBC Studios in London, England on Wednesday afternoon (September 2).
Speaking with Billboard, the 24-year-old “Poison” singer opened up about her upcoming music and more.
“My favorite thing ever in what I do is performing live,” Rita shared with the glossy. “It’s about not having any rules. I’ve been very adamant on making sure that there is a sense of freedom on my stage, whether it’s outfits or being comfortable in your sexuality, whatever.”
She added, “I’m very proud of what I am and who we are as a band and as a team. We roll as a unit and this is the first time I’ve performed in Los Angeles, or even America, in two years. It’s almost like starting again.”
Rita Ora covers her faces with her long striped sleeves while arriving at Heathrow Airport in London, England on Tuesday (September 1).
Over the weekend, viewers saw the 24-year-old “Body on Me” singer get very emotional during Seann Miley Moore‘s audition on X Factor.
“He walked onto the stage with a meaning, with a message that was about being a misfit and being comfortable,” she shared about why tears were shed.
Rita added, “He loved it and he was passionate about it. He didn’t even have to speak. I felt it. I was so relieved that someone had come on the show and showed that kind of individuality….It wasn’t the fact that he did an amazing performance, which he did, it was more of being thankful for individuality and for people being comfortable in their own skin and with who they are. That’s why I cried.”

FYI: Rita is wearing a Vera Wang custom dress, Staurt Weitzman shoes, and Lorraine Schwartz jewels. Her hair was styled using Matrix StyleLink products. Twigs is wearing an Atelier Versace corset and skirt with Eva Fehren jewelry.
The track, which was written by Ed Sheeran, will be featured on her upcoming album.
“The record that I have with Ed, he’s not featured on, he just wrote. It’s called ’Us’ and for me, it’s one of the most sweetest, heartwarming, incredible love songs-slash-reality that I’ve ever heard,” Rita told Rap-Up. “And it kinda makes me think, ‘Thank God that someone wrote that in a song.’”
Rita Ora is back to her signature blonde hair again as she heads out to Chateau Marmont on Thursday night (August 20) in Los Angeles.
The 24-year-old “Body on Me” singer traded in her temporary pink and blue two-tone tresses for her blonde hair once again, which she was sporting just the day before while out with friends at Warwick Nightclub in Hollywood.
