Her accompanying interview is no less compelling. Sometimes she’s stating the obvious, such as explaining the title of her album, “Ora”: “It’s my name but also ora in my language means time, and it took me so long to do this album. Like three years.” Other times she’s getting serious about getting advice from one of the best in the biz, Jay-Z: “The best advice he gave me was, ‘Have you seen Chris Martin perform? You know it’s literally just him on a stage? And he just rocks it out. Jay told me, ‘You don’t need dancers and stuff around you.’”
But she does need lollipops. Lots and lots of lollipops. See more images from Rita Ora’s GQ UK photo shoot below.
