BEHIND THE SCENES INFO

Breaking news: Rita Ora is officially blowing our pop culture minds. Besides her ridiculously infectious sound (see: “How We Do (Party)” for a refresher), she’s been spitting some serious style game, too. We already know the Kosovo-born songbird loooooves to play dressup, and now she’s at it again for ASOS. The new signee to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation label is gracing the cover of the September issue, joining everyone from Shailene Woodley to Elizabeth Olsen in the mag’s “It” girl ranks. The issue doesn’t drop for a couple more months, but because we love you (and Rita, obviously) we’ve got a sneak peek right here!

ASOS uploaded some behind-the-scenes polaroids of the shoot just yesterday on its Facebook page, and spoiler alert- we’re already obsessed. She looks predictably adorable in the autographed image at the top, rocking a backwards hat, camo jacket, and bedazzled top- totally in sync with her signature mishmashed playful wardrobe. And check out her INCREDIBLE jacket above! The spike-embellished graphic denim topper is a special one-off design that the ASOS design team crafted specifically for the cover star, so unfortunately that means we can’t snag our own. But that’s okay, because you can bet that we’ll be picking up literally everything else she sports in the spread.

We already know Rita is a nail art fan- the girl wears $100 bill nail wraps!– so clearly she’s upping the ante for ASOS. She has a glittery-tipped French manicure here, courtesy of WAH! Nails in London, all topped off with plenty of stackable gold rings. Hot hands, indeed.
The issue will hit ASOS.com in August, so mark you calendars now and let the Rita Ora countdown begin!

Peep excerpts of the interview below:
On Jay-Z: I was straight off the plane from London with rained-on hair! I think if I’d known that I’d be meeting him, I would have freaked out. Now he’s like my brother.
On Beyonce: Destiny’s Child was my band. I was nearly choking when I met her, but she is the nicest. I call her alien because I’m like, “How do you do everything at once? You can’t be human.”
On Rob Kardashian: Rob’s family make their lives public. Me? I’m very private. He’s a great friend. But the only relationship I’m having is with the tour bus.
Although Rob and Rita have been rumored to be dating for over a year, the two continue to deny anything more than a friendship. Rob was recently featured on Fox dating show The Choice TV. 0_o

Rita Ora visited the studios of 96.5 KISS FM, located in Cleveland, Ohio for a personal concert to the very popular radio station.
What song did she sing? Her biggest hit in America of course: How We Do (Party)! Before she started singing the acoustic version of this song, she spoke about how great Notorious B.I.G. is and the influence his music had on her. She’s a big fan and loves that she can dedicate this great song to him.
Ritabots, enjoy the video!
Yay! We have some more Photos from Rita New Photoshoot!

Rita Ora is winning hearts everywhere, including Perez Hilton, who she met for the first time this past weekend. Perez talks about how there’s currently a big British invasion of music and how pop music is making a major comeback in America. He vouches for her talents as he says that she’s great at both and that she’ll be popular in America.
Rita Ora hit the London town and what seems to be one of her favorite nightclubs, DSTRKT, after her grand performance at the Barclays Wireless Music Festival. It’s been raining an insane amount in London and Rita was prepared for it.
She wore a complete head to toe skin-tight PVC outfit to prevent herself from getting soaked. Check out the pictures below. What do Ritabots think of her outfit?
