Rita Ora: I'm a perfectionist

Rita Ora tries not to pay attention to what others expect from her.

Rita Ora has very high expectations of herself.

The 24-year-old singer has taken the music industry by storm and made her move into movies with a small role in the film everyone’s talking about, Fifty Shades of Grey.

Fans come with the territory and many A-listers confess they feel pressure to look and act a certain way. However, Rita sees things a little differently.

“I expect a lot of myself,” she divulged to the German edition of Glamour magazine. “I’m a little perfectionist. If I worried about the expectations of others on top of that, I think I would probably go crazy.”

Rita looks up to her mother and has tried to adopt her positive outlook on life. While she rarely gives in to sadness, she admits she’s just a “normal” young woman who has highs and lows like anyone else. And Rita is keen to show this relatable side via her social media profiles.

“Social media needs to be handled delicately,” she reasoned. “It’s easy to forget just how many people are following you on there. You have to learn what to say and when to hold back. But that’s just a part of me right now, sharing my life with others on a daily basis – it’s part of my job.”

Rita also discussed her new album, which is due out later this year. She’s inspired by singers such as Gwen Stefani and Bob Marley and thinks fans will hear she’s matured on her new record.
