Rita Ora continues to carve out quite the career.

Once the “new girl” on the Roc Nation roster, the Brit-bred belter has morphed into a multimedia maven.

Music, movies, fashion, endorsements, and philanthropy – you name it, she does it.

The latest role to add to her growing list of hustles is TV host. For, Ora has been tapped to front the revived ‘America’s Next Top Model‘ on VH1.

Set to kick off this December, the promo run has landed the star on the cover of Paper Magazine‘s November issue.

Beyond posing in an array of dazzling ensembles, the 25-year-old offered a number of notable quotes.

She muses on her achievements, as well as her upcoming album on Atlantic Records.

Peep pics and excepts below…

On How Her Success Can Inspire ANTM Contestants:

“I’m not here to tell them what to do. I’m here to show them that they can do this, too. I’m an example of what you can achieve because it’s worked.”

On Her New Album:

“I’m so happy [to go into the studio] because I can take my extensions out, put my cap on and hibernate in a cave and just make great songs with my label, who is awesome and who has my back.”

On Singing In Honor Of Mother Teresa:

“It was such a blur. Being Albanian [like Mother Teresa] and having the support from my country was really special. I kept thinking, how did I even get here with a veil on my head?”

    • Bey Bey October 17, 2016

      Prostitution isn’t cute. Don’t let those contoured ig girls fool you. She sleeps with everyone but nobody respects her so what was the point. You smashed to slay but can’t slay because everyone knows you smashed.

      • Fancy BISH October 17, 2016

        “You smashed to slay but can’t slay because everyone knows you smashed.” -Bey Bey

    • Fancy BISH October 17, 2016

  9. Hehe October 17, 2016

  10. #Nicole Nation/J. Cole October 17, 2016

    Um…I don’t know her?

    • Queen Chezza October 17, 2016

      A Nicole fan this side of the millennium? Wonders never cease.

      • #Nicole Nation/J. Cole October 17, 2016

        Oh not a cheryl no-talent having cole fan trying to talk down on anyone

      • #Nicole Nation/J. Cole October 17, 2016

        Bítch Nicole has more talent and personality in one finger than cheryl non-singin’ áss cole has in her whole ugly body!

        “America’s sweetheart?”

        Hardly! More like “America’s rude, ugly, fake, trashy, stupid, useless, talent-less piece of garbage!”

      • #JACKIE October 17, 2016

        Kiiiiii

  11. Trina October 17, 2016

    I still don’t understand where her success comes from … . The only record I heard from her was that Iggy song. But anyway, good for her

  12. Chile Please!!! October 17, 2016

    Okay Imma need someone well know & more iconic to host ANTM (even though I been stopped watching cycles ago). Newbies getting iconic deals too soon in their career….I mean REALLY let’s be honest…who the fawk is really checking for Rita “Italian Icy” Ora? She has not made ENOUGH noise for me to be routing for her to succeed this far!! If anything Rhianna would’ve been WAAAAAAAAAAAAY better, but she actually has a relevant career & slaying fashionably!!

  13. Chasin Time October 17, 2016

    Jack of all trades… master at none

  14. Kwinzy October 17, 2016

    And she still lives lavish unlike you hating ass thotisha’s infesting this post. Rita never said she was better than anyone nor is she coming anyone’s “spot.” So let a bish dream…

  15. Jamal October 17, 2016

    I’m trying to figure exactly what she achieved…..

  16. No favs, just here for the music October 17, 2016

    ….Achieve WHAT exactly?

  17. #JACKIE October 17, 2016

    Who?

  18. King z October 17, 2016

    Example of what you can achieve when you keep your knees greased and kneel with ease.

    Girl please.

    • Danzou October 17, 2016

      BARS

  19. King z October 17, 2016

  20. #Nicole Nation/J. Cole October 17, 2016

    You’re an example of being one of the most boring people in the music industry and having no good qualities.

    Dull music, so-so voice, uninteresting, rihanna wanna be (who’d want to be her anyway), egotistical, calm your t.i.t.s rita!

  21. Max October 17, 2016

    …. when you open your legs.

  22. I’m Booked October 17, 2016

    The First Time She Hasn’t Looked Like Rihanna & Beyonce’s Understudy, It’s Probably Cause Neither Of ThemWould Do A Shoot This Tacky! Ehh

  23. Liam October 17, 2016
