The thirty-two-year-old singer-songwriter, Rita Ora, is known for her hit music career, including a few songs for the Fifty Shades of Grey franchise.

While Rita Ora has had a few romantic relationships in the past, including Calvin Harris, she has always stayed super focused on her work. She had previously mentioned that she is too busy for relationships and she doesn’t pay heed to any rumors about her love life and she certainly seems to have a similar point of view, even today. In a recent interview, the singer slammed people asking about her love life stating that it was a bit sexist.

In an upcoming interview with BBC1’s Louis Theroux, Rita Ora revealed that she believes the attention and obsession she, along with other women, receives owing to their love life is a bit sexist as no man’s career would be defined by who he is dating or how many women he has previously dated.

Look, we are women. Men don’t get asked, ‘Oh, you’ve had 100 boyfriends or girlfriends’. Sometimes they do, but the majority of the time they don’t.”

The How to be Lonely singer stated that she, just like everyone else, loves love. However, she doesn’t base her life on her relationships, she just sees them as an addition to her life – a life where she majorly focuses on herself and her work.

“I love being in love, it’s amazing and so fun. Who doesn’t? I live life to the fullest. I’m an extremely passionate person when it comes to love, but I don’t base my life on relationships. I don’t base my moments on ‘Oh, I’ll remember this because of that relationship,’ that’s just an addition to my life.”

Ora added that the interest in a celebrity’s love life is part of the territory that comes with being popular and she’s right. Fans cannot help but wonder about the lives of their favorite stars, even if it’s just out of mere curiosity.

After dating a few big names in the industry including Calvin Harris, Bruno Mars, and ASAP Rocky, Ora is now ready to spend the rest of her life with her reported husband, Taika Waititi, the popular director. She stated that she had always dreamed of getting married, ever since she was a child, and that Waititi is the one for her.

He’s the one. He’s awesome. He’s my best friend. Being in the industry for over ten years, I’ve suddenly felt a sense of calm, weirdly.”

Later in the interview, she was joined by Waititi who gushed on about their relationship, seeming to be equally in love. He stated that he met Ora at a barbeque over at his place when she came to the party with Robert Pattinson.

We just became friends, we hit it off. We became friends for a three and a half years, we were just good mates. We were in relationships, both of us. Every time we hung out we would just catch up where we left off and it was a good friendship. And then we decided to ruin it all!”

Apart from humble beginnings and extreme dedication towards their work, looks like the duo has something else in common too. Both of them are extremely in love!
