Cutting her links from the Kardashian clan, the R.I.P singer denies she is dating Kim’s brother Robert.
Instead she said: ‘I’m so lonely. I just want to be in a relationship.’
Until now, the sex bomb has tried to be upbeat with her chart-topping cuts but now she’s going to pour her heart out on her next record.
‘This album, to me, was just about making people feel happy,’ she said.
‘I wasn’t going through any kind of heartbreak, so I didn’t want to write about that. But in this next album, I am. I think I’m going through a heartbreak right now.’
As for constant links to Rob Kardashian, she maintains they are ‘just really good friends’.
Despite yearning for a fella, she told Rollacoaster magazine: ‘Right now, it wouldn’t be fair to be in a relationship. I don’t have any time; I wouldn’t
Her lonely bedtimes echo Rihanna’s singleton moan, who said this year: ‘Single life is so overrated. It sucks.’
But the 21-year-old is bemused by the endless comparisons to her Barbadian predecessor.
‘To tell you the truth, I don’t really care,’ she said, insisting they are just both sisters under Jay-Z’s label, Roc Nation.
‘My music’s different, we sing differently, we’re from different parts of the world. Plus, we’ve seen each other lots of times and we hang out.
‘So if people are trying to create a feud, it’s not going to work. Even if that was the case, Roc [Nation] would be like, “What are you guys doing? You’re part of the same family!”’

RIP to the girls we use to see, because Rita Ora dropped by AMP Radio. The London native sat down with McCabe to discuss where she gets her fashion sense, joining the Roc Nation family, and filming her new music video in Kosovo.
She admits to being very jet lagged, just flying back from filming a music video in Kosovo, where she was born. When McCabe asked how the people treated her and why she wanted to film there, she said, “I went over there, and it was literally like the most incredible reception I’ve ever had in my whole life. I felt like I never wanted to leave. I wanted to show you guys, and everybody unfamiliar with it, how great of a place it is”.
Rita is almost as big of a fan of fashion as she is music. You might have caught her at the VMA’s wearing a retro-chic jumpsuit. She explains, “That jumpsuit was one of those things I wanted to wear. I knew everyone was going to wear a dress. So I just thought that, you know what, it was a custom Emilio Pucci design, and I thought it would be perfect if I wore it. It was a bit comfortable. I was comfy in it. It was a suit and a dress”.
She likes keeping things comfortable. In fact Rita confesses to spraying herself with perfume backstage before every show. She compares it to a comfort blanket. McCabe and everyone else in the room enjoyed the smell of her Chanel.
Rita jokingly talks about how people thought she died when the single “RIP” was released, and takes no credit for writing the song. It was fully written by Drake. She does however explain what “RIP” means.
“Basically I think it’s a woman empowerment confident boosting song. I think sometimes it’s really nice to remind your man, that you’ve got a hot girlfriend.”
You still might have a chance to make Rita Ora your very hot girlfriend. As she puts it, she is “very single”. Although, she does say her music is her boyfriend.
Rita has already released her album in the UK and says we can expect it in the US sometime around Christmas.

Rita Ora adds, “You have to be a don, and then everyone else will think you are a don.”
