Rita Ora Meets Her Idol Gwen Stefani

Rita Ora had the best weekend ever. After winning “Best Newcomer” at the MOBO Awards and officially releasing her new single “Shine Ya Light,” the 21-year-old singer performed on “The X Factor” U.K., sharing the bill with No Doubt. During Sunday’s taping, she finally met Gwen Stefani, who she has admired her entire life.

After snapping a photo with her blonde idol, she reflected on the surreal experience. “I woke up this morning thinking wow I actually met the person I looked up to all my life. Have u guys ever met the people who inspired you?” tweeted Rita.
