Rita Ora: Snoop was scared of elephants

Rita Ora says Snoop Dogg was too “scared” to ride an elephant when they were in Thailand.

The pair have been working on a musical collaboration and flew to Southeast Asia to shoot the accompanying video.

Whereas Rita enjoyed the experience, Snoop was apparently not so enamoured with the local wildlife.

“[It was] incredible. We’ve done a new song for his album, it’s called Torn Apart,” she gushed to British edition of OK! magazine.

“We shot the video in Thailand, went on a few elephants, looked around, had great Pad Thai. He didn’t get on any elephants, he was scared! [Laughs] But I did!”

As well as working with Snoop, the 22-year-old singer has been thinking about her next album.

The star has also been busy with her Radioactive tour and is excited to be debuting some meaningful new songs for her fans.

“I actually perform a track on this set [of the tour] from the new album. It’s called Fair and it’s not even finished recording yet, it’s not even finished, but it’s a track that I couldn’t hold in – it’s a very personal song to me,” she explained.

It’s her first solo tour and Rita is having an amazing time performing for her many fans.

The pretty star promises something special for those lucky enough to see her live.

“I have about three outfit changes and the set stage changes atmosphere about three or four times. It’s just having fun, man. It’s about great music and having a good time,” she smiled.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Taurus:

Reduced finances are a source of strain. It's hard to cultivate intimacy when you're always worried about making ends meet. Whether you're in a business or romantic relationship, you should make a plan for the future together. Consolidating your debts and putting yourself on a strict repayment plan are among the possibilities. Instead of worrying how your situation will appear to others, think about what will be best for you. Making a fresh start will draw you and your partner closer together.More
