Rita Ora normally sports scarlet-stained lips with her unruly, blond locks, but for our interview she went with a more neutral palette paired with a Mickey Mouse graphic dress and her signature black Jordans. She was discussing how she was going to have it “rain” streamers into the crowd for her VEVO Lift gig – a taped performance happening in less than five hours and was to be held at the Gramercy Theatre in New York City. It was a technicality that needed more than a day’s worth of planning, but we stayed tight-lipped. What we did notice was her unwavering ease at the issue. You’d think she was a seasoned performer in the business with that sort of confidence, or maybe she’s good at convincing us she’s been in the game for awhile.
