Rita Ora Rolling Stone Finalist:
The fans have voted. Rolling Stone magazine announced the two female music artists who are the finalists for the national “Women Who Rock” contest, in partnership with Garnier Fructis: Rita Ora and Karmin!
Rolling Stone and the “Women Who Rock” contest are celebrating the outstanding and diverse array of female music artists who currently dominate the music world, with Rita Ora and Karmin being two excellent examples. The winner will appear on the back cover of the iconic “Women Who Rock” issue in late September and will be featured in the issue along with another female music legend on the primary cover.
The two finalists will perform back-to-back sets at the Rolling Stone Rock Room during Lollapalooza in Chicago on August 4. The performances will be posted on RollingStone.com along with additional videos and interviews for consumers to view as they vote for the winner. Us Weekly will also feature the finalists in the magazine and online at UsMagazine.com, where a “Rock Your Style” section will showcase style ideas inspired by today’s hottest female music artists.
Rita Ora is London’s newest sensation, signed by JAY Z to Roc Nation/Columbia Records. The gorgeous rising star has two # 1 singles in the UK, over 16 million YouTube video views and is touring through the fall.
Karmin’s platinum-selling hit song “Brokenhearted” charted at #1 on Billboard’s Heatseeker’s Chart and Top 20 on Billboard’s Pop, Digital and Dance/Club Play charts and hit the top ten at Top 40 Radio. Karmin took the internet by storm last year after posting a cover of Chris Brown’s “Look At Me Now” on YouTube. The clip instantly went viral and became one of YouTube’s most viewed videos of 2011. The duo has since released their debut album Hello and racked up over a half of a billion views for their videos.

Congrats to our girl
Rita Ora tweeted her 833,000 Twitter followers a picture of all the tracks on her upcoming debut album ‘ORA’ – she even took the time to write it by hand! Additionally, she sealed it with a kiss from her famous red lipstick.
In speaking about her record, Rita said, “My whole record is about being happy and feeling good about yourself. I didn’t really want to make such an intense record because I’m not an intense person.”
Also, Rita will be performing in Philadelphia at Jay Z’s Made in America festival in September. She jokingly says, “It’s my first festival, so we’re gonna bring it all out. I might get, like, a Biggie hologram.”
Rita Ora’s style has gained a lot of attention since she hit the music scene and for good reason! Her unique style is eye-catching and while others may not be able to pull it off, she certainly can! In the upcoming month of ASOS magazine, Rita shows that she doesn’t need to wear designer clothing to look hot!
So who is Rita’s fashion inspiration? It’s Kanye West. She said, “To me, fashion is like art. I love how clothes can change the way you feel….I’d love to be the female Kanye. He’s one of my fashion icons….He doesn’t believe me! But I think he’s so cool and effortless.”
Rita has loved fashion ever since she was younger. In regards to her older sister’s clothing, Rita said “I always used to wear her clothes. She hated me borrowing them and would get so mad. The worst was when she had a white pair of jeans and I ruined them. I wasn’t allowed to wear her clothes at all after that.”

Rita Ora is hitting the cover of Complex Magazine for the August/September issue, and she looks sexy as ever! But why does she say she is just “like a dude”?
She said that while she can be girly at times wearing her heels, she prefers wearing her Jordans on stage. ‘I’m like a dude,’ she told the magazine. ‘Jordans are my favorite. I wear them all the time for shows. I can get girly-girly when I want to, but I can’t perform in heels. I would bust my face open on stage and we don’t want that.’
Rita talks about how she gets nervous before her shows, but uses it as an adrenaline rush. Her older sister, who is also her road manager, Elena said that Rita Ora performs well under pressure.
Rita Ora talked about a collaboration with Conor Maynard a few months back and the day has finally come! The official release of “Better Than You” by Conor Maynard featuring your girl, Rita Ora!
