Rita Ora: Mom hates racy costumes

Rita Ora’s mother hates it when she exposes too much of herself in saucy outfits.

The singer is known for her raunchy onstage outfits and loves to make statements with her clothing choices.

Rita covers the July/August cover of Germany’s Interview magazine looking sexy and sultry in the accompanying shoot, but revealed she may need to take steps to tone down her look.

“The only thing my mom hates more than a lack of reliability, is when I flash my breasts at a gig. I really have to pay more attention to wearing bras,” she laughed to the publication.

On the cover, the 22-year-old sports vampy red eyeshadow, darkened eyebrows and curly hair, flashing her pearly whites as she bites on a gold chain.

Rather than taking her mother’s advice, Rita’s shoot involves pictures of her clutching her breasts and wearing a skin-tight black top.

She sports a slick of red lipstick throughout, accompanied by long talons of the same colour.

One more arty shot comes in black and white, with the star crouching down and looking towards the floor.

Although she may be the epitome of glamour now, Rita comes from humble beginnings.

“We lived in a council flat in Ladbroke Grove [in London]. My mom worked as a cleaning lady and caught up on her studies in the evenings,” she recalled.

During the interview, Rita also recalled receiving a call at work that changed her life.

The person on the other end of the line told the star Jay-Z liked her music and asked whether she wanted to come to New York City.

“I was speechless but then said: ‘How nice of you to call but I’ll have to save some money first to be able to afford the flight.’ The guy just started laughing. They had already reserved the flight and booked the hotel,” she smiled.
