MUSIC FAB: Rita Ora Addresses Rihanna Comparisons In COMPLEX Magazine + Lloyd's "Turn On The Light" (Remix)

Rita Ora covers the August/September 2012 issue of COMPLEX Magazine where inside, her comparisons to Rihanna are discussed. Also, listen to Lloyd's remix of Future's "Turn On The Lights" (Remix).

While promoting her upcoming debut for Roc Nation, Ora, British singer Rita Ora dished to COMPLEX Mag on her alleged feud with Rihanna, her career goals and what she plans to do in the industry.

With a photoshoot captured by photographer Zoe McConnell in London, Rita talked about "knowing herself" musically.  And of course, there are the Rihanna comparisions. 

“Ty-Ty” Smith, a partner in Roc Nation who worked with Rihanna from the time she signed with Def Jam, discussed the comparisons saying,

“When Rihanna came out we heard the Beyoncé comparisons. People jump to that when it’s someone they don’t know. Like, ‘Oh, that’s that girl who wants to be Beyoncé.’ Now they’re saying the same thing about Rita, that she’s the new Rihanna. She just has to show them who she is and she will be fine. I admire Rihanna. She works her ass off. She hasn’t had a break and she has given people hit after hit after hit. That work ethic and discipline is hardcore. That’s the kind of shit that I want to do. That I will do.”

For her part, Rita added, “Everyone thought that we hated each other, but the whole thing was created by the media. That’s what’s so funny."


Check out the photoshoot:

She is a combination of

She is a combination of Beyonce and Rihanna and it doesn't surprise me because both are managed by Beyonce's husband... It's very standard and I'm sure he'll try forming a girl group or boy band reminiscent of a previously success group as well. Very basic and unoriginal.

If she doesn't want to be

If she doesn't want to be compared to Riri, she needs to find a new look, cos her look, the tattoos, the clothes...they all scream Ri.o it makes it difficult to tell them apart. It's like some super fan of Rihanna who just happened to fall into music, and follow her footsteps to fame.

i heard her song. im not

i heard her song. im not impressed. she's a "pretty" face with nice boobs. minimal talent so i wont be supporting. *shrug*

I actually love Rita and her

I actually love Rita and her energy on stage, she knows she can't dance, so she doesn't even try to, unlike someone we know, but she can actually sing, unlike someone know. I just feel like she needs a make under, like less clown/drag make up and touch up the roots and perhaps some clothes that fit and not some Roc Nation hand me downs/leftovers. I'm rooting for this girl, I hope she's a success.

Agreed. Rita can actually

Agreed. Rita can actually sing. Now all she needs to do it change her image a bit. Maybe dye her hair and change her lipstick from time to time. I don't see Rihanna when i see Rita. I think people are comparing them because something stupid like Rita's curly blonde hair. Rihanna had that look the other day.

I'm a Lloyd fan but I'll pass on this mix.. the original is better.. I know Future can't sing but the raspiness of his voice.. the sound is right.. this is alright.. just nasty words.. that's all.. same Lloyd sound
