The Hot Right Now singer is constantly likened to the Barbadian star, with people finding similarities in their looks and music.
But Rita told The Sun that she and the Diamonds singer aren't all that alike.
Asked if she was fed up of being referred to as the new Rihanna, Rita said: "A bit. She's incredible... but we're just so different.
"First off, I'm just a little girl from the 'hood in east London, and she's an island child.
"Also, her bum is much better than mine."

Read the fine print on a contract. If you're not happy with the proposed terms of a deal, renegotiate. Don't be afraid to drive a hard bargain. You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
