Rita Ora and Rihanna are not just employees of Jay-Z, they are friends. The R.I.P singer completed a sexy cover shoot for Complex magazine and laughed off the media’s attempt to pit her against the Rude Boy singer. (Plus more update on Rihanna below)
“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 sh-t that I want to do. That I will do….”
Rita echoed what many entertainers have said about Rihanna – despite her partying ways – no one has denied RihRih works her butt off. Jay-Z’s newest signee continued to squash the rumors by clarifying a tweet sent recently with a photo of she and Rihanna with the caption ‘@rihanna hatin a$$ biatch!!! Mwah!!!!’
“People were like, ‘What the f-ck! Everyone thought that we hated each other, but the whole thing was created by the media. That’s what’s so funny. […] We made a joke out of it. It’s love. Roc Nation is such an incredible, unique team, especially in the music industry. Everyone genuinely loves and cares about each other.”
How nice. In other Rihanna news, Oprah Winfrey will sit down with the pop star for an in depth interview set to air on August 19th at 9/8c on OWN. Rihanna has remained guarded in recent interviews refusing at times to open up about the rumors surrounding her relationship with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.
The interview took place in Barbados where Rihanna attended the funeral for her grandmother – which she misses dearly. The 24-year old who’s vacationing in Cannes posted messages on Twitter calling on her grandmother Dolly to give her advice.
‘I wish u were here … Got so many questions and you always had answers #grangranDOLLY
Another tweet read, ‘Send a message in the wind or something please #grangranDOLLY (sic)”
