Rita Ora Remains Grateful to Jay Z and Beyoncé

Rita Ora stuns on dual covers of Cosmopolitan UK. Sporting pink in both shots, the British songstress opens up about her relationship with Jay Z and Beyoncé for the magazine’s September issue.

Despite a legal battle with Roc Nation and “Becky” rumors (that have since been debunked), Rita says she’s got no beef with Hov and Bey.

“I’m still happy I’ve had this incredible experience,” she said. “Jay is one of my idols and Beyoncé is obviously the queen of life. I’ll never not appreciate the experience I had with them and the things I’ve seen.”

She added that they are “great mentors” and that she looks “up to them a lot.”

The two covers are similar, but one goes to newsstands and the other is exclusive to subscribers. In the widely released cover, Rita is standing with one hand on her hip. Its tagline reads: “The Making of Rita Ora: From Refugee to Global Superstar.”

The other cover, exclusive to subscribers, features Ora with her arms and legs crossed. Here, she’s sporting adidas and the tagline reads: “Rita Ora: How She Went from Refugee to Global Superstar.”

Speaking of adidas, Ora recently launched a new collection with the apparel company. She’s also the new host of “America’s Next Top Model” and has new music on the way through a deal with Warner.

The September issue of Cosmopolitan UK with Rita is available now.
