Rita Ora was initially flattered by being compared to superstar and fellow Roc Nation artist Rihanna, but as she comes into her own as an artist, she doesn’t listen to the critics who call her a copy of Rihanna, and she’s making it clear that there is no feud with her.
“My music’s different, we sing differently, we’re from different parts of the world,” she said of the comparisons in a new interview.
Rita is the newbie in the industry, so juicy stories of a feud with a superstar would catch anyone’s eye. Whether it be rumors that Rihanna is trying to steal Rita’s boyfriend or rumors Rita stole her hit song “R.I.P.” away from the “We Found Love” singer, the two singer’s have been put up against each other as bitter enemies. Rita says that is far from the truth.
“We’ve seen each other lots of times and we hang out,“ Rita added. “So if people are trying to create a feud, not going to work. Even if that was the case, Roc would be like, ‘What are you guys doing? You’re part of the same family!‘”
