Hot Shot: Rita Ora Makes Moves… With ‘Vogue’

Published: Wednesday 10th Oct 2012 by David

Whichever way you look at it, Rita Ora is indeed 2012’s breakout star.

Rocketing to global notoriety back in February, the last few months have seen the singer’s debut album ‘ORA’ secure opportunities very few artists can honestly say they wouldn’t kill for.

From a lucrative stint on the summer leg of Coldplay‘s ‘Mylo Xyloto’ Tour to performing cuts from the project on the ‘On Air With Ryan Seacrest’ show, Campaign Rita has been a roaring success.

However, all of these may pale in comparison to news she shared with fans today, which saw her reveal she has taken ‘meetings’ with the esteemed folk over at ‘Vogue’.

We can’t wait to see what they cook up!

    Whichever way you look at it, Rita Ora is indeed 2012′s breakout star.

    That’s Lana Del Rey.

  2. MC October 10, 2012

    How much did this cost Jay?

    • Benron (King Of The Navy) October 10, 2012

      Beyonce’s retirment fund, she’ll be out in the cold when they kick her out of the reitrment ome she is living at currently.

      • MC October 10, 2012

        I heard that! I was trying to be peaceful today, but there it goes out the window.

    • boopboop October 11, 2012

      i was wondering the same thing. i don’t see it for this girl. all that $$$ wasted on promoting her and her s*** ain’t selling like jay and bey hoped it would. her us album will prob never be released. they might as well drop her and start over.

  3. Benron (King Of The Navy) October 10, 2012

    I would point out that Carly Rae Jepson, Karmin and Cher Lllyod are slaying her to bits an that despite her having more promo than anything else in history she is still flopping, but I just realised something:

    Maybe we should all just pretend Incestra Snora is doing well so Roc will see it and become fooled and stop forciing this Rihanna reject down our throats.So yes Rita is the QUEEN!

    • kelly October 10, 2012

      And Cher LLoyd cannot even sing well and was on xfactor in 2010. All these fashion shoots mean nothing if You are not selling record or your movie is not number 1 at the box office.

      Take Azalia Banks, she gets lots of love from the fashion crowd. But she cannot sell in America and she will never have a Smash Hit in the USA, I dont give a damm how many fashion parties she attends. When the fashion industry tire of her and move on to the next off beat act. She is done. The same with this girl.

    • MELODY2012 October 11, 2012

      I don’t even think its about Rita anymore, its about Jay-z’s ego. Jay-z will not be able to sleep at night after they drop Rita because his A&R skill have been questioned since the days of Rockafella. He never signed any successful act other than Kanye, and he didn’t even want to sign him. Kanye made a name for himself by producing for other artists including Jay-z. so he had already established a fan base. Jay-z is just saving face at this point, that label (Roc Nation) makes Maybach Music Group, YMCMB and G.O.O.D Music look like Universal in terms of success. It is the worst label run by a rapper. I am starting to believe tha fault is not Rita but Roc, because she is not the only one failing on that label.

Sam, you are right. That is why her failure proves SHE has not talent. We cannot blame it on lack of promotion, the way we did for Tierra Marie. The buck stops at her. She has been in Glamour, GQ, Vogue and worked with top photographers. She still cannot sell, at the end if the day, she is not a model . She stiil needs to sell records to be in industry.

    Sony cannot pay their bills on Vogue / GQ / Glamour features. It seems that she is doing more modeling and acting these days. Where is her music career?

    Take the fashion away from Rihanna she still sells!

    • MELODY2012 October 11, 2012

      I think Rita will end up as a socialite if she doesn’t leave Roc Nation.

  5. Luvly October 10, 2012

    I don’t understand how people complain about TGJ “shoving” Rita down readers throats, but make it a priority to comment in every single Rita post. Usually when I’m not here for someone, I avoid them at all cost, but I digress.

    On topic: Congratulations to Rita.

    • kelly October 10, 2012

      Maybe cos Rita Ora is used to shade, Rih – a mega star, dumbass!

      Or maybe it cos this girls imitates Rih whole life and Rih fans do not like it.

  6. kelly October 10, 2012

    We know she is not getting a vogue cover. She is getting a feature. But, The american public are not fickle. She will be in vogue USA, with not a single hit in the USA…All this makes her look desperate and showcases her sad attempt to make it.

    All the unfair opportunities given to the only new act NOT to have had a hit, are gonna further increase the ever growing hatred and backlash she receives. Lana Del ray is the face of HNM, have she even had this? All this is gonna make her more than hated than Paris hilton, because, like Paris, she comes across as someone, who gets all these gigs over everyone else, without to work for it. She has no talent and she is failure, but she is rewarded over people 100X more successful and talented. That is why she is hated more than any other act.

    But, do you boo, this is not hurting Rihanna. Rih gets covers cos she EARNED THE RIGHT.

  7. kelly October 10, 2012

    The vogue feature means nothing. She has already been in GQUS and she failed to get RIP con the chart. She had already done Glamour shot by patrick dermachilier and HWD peaked at 62. This vogue will be another garish photoshoot, showcased her short body and it will littered with Rihanna this / that. All she does is promote Rihanna, really.

  8. kelly October 10, 2012

    People will shade rih and say, ”HA HA HA rih never had this on her debut. But I know, LA reid would never of had it any other way. The way they marketed Rih in 2005 was the best way; she won the hearts of everyone and sold millions. People wanted to see the cute island princess win. The public fell in love wth 17 yrol rih and was determined to see her win.

    Rita Ora come in the game like she is JLO and people hate her. She most hated music act in history, the fact that she gets all this hype and promo intensifies the hatred. Every blog, twitter, media outlet shade her. Even Grazia magazine are shading her. She even gets shade in her won country, the UK. Her hatred is similar to Paris hilton.

    The public dont wanna see her win, hence why she is failing to sell. Come on! Do the math. How can an act been given the A list gigs but fail to chart?

  9. Haute Hottie October 10, 2012

    Rita Ora may be a gem in the UK, but here in America she gets NO LOVE! we see thru the gimmick.

    • kelly October 10, 2012

      Even in the UK she is no big star. HER LP is being outsold by BOTH RIHANNA LP LOUD AND TTT. The daily mail is teh biggest UK online paper and the call Rita out for slaking Rih . There readers hate the f*** outta her too. Go on their site and see.

  10. bibi93 October 10, 2012

    Class!!

  11. kelly October 10, 2012

    Yes! More good news for Rih. It has been reported than Rihanna, Selena Gomez and Mila Kunis are now the frontrunners for Star is Born, now that beyonce was axed from the project.

    And even more good news! AC/ DC – Rih competition for number 1in the USA are NOT releasing an studio album, they are releasing a LIVE FROM ARGENTINA ALBUM. It is their live album from 2009. Live LP’s dont tend to slay, so Rih has even more chance of debuting at number 1. That was her only competition.

    Rita Ora will be performing at Atlanta Gay pride, with Andy bell who has H**. This just cheapens her image. First she was performing at a bar in Texas, then Wichita technical college in kansas and now Atlanta gay pride?

    Man! She really is Z list. Next she will performing at a strip club, maybe Rihanna will be there and can throw her a dollar bill.

    • boopboop October 11, 2012

      usually washed-up acts perform at gay pride. i guess rita’s career is already over before it even started.

  12. kelly October 10, 2012

    All you pieces of shits who went HAM on Rihanna for naming her LP seven, accusing her of copying Beyonce.

    WELL……………SHE DOES IT AGAIN! SWITCHING HER S*** UP ON U M************. HER NEW ALBUM WILL BE CALLED SIDE EFFECTS.

    ONce gain, rIhanna swiped you m************. Always 100 steps ahead of the game and always switching it up on you flop ass haters.

    Now what is yo fave gon do now? #Catch her if you can

  13. kelly October 10, 2012

    Side Effects feat the smash hit Diamonds will be out on nov 19th. AC /DC will be releasing A LIVE ALBUM – NOT A STUDIO ALBUM OF NEW TRACKS on the same day. Rih said on twitter she plans to leak her LP cover in the coming days.

    HA HA HA HA LMFAO. What is flop ass haters gon do now? You still have to sell records to keep your JOB. You still have to sell records to keep your job.

    • Benron (King Of The Navy) October 10, 2012

      Rita Ora’s summary of this year (Nothing memorable, jsut a boring blur of promo)

    • kelly October 10, 2012

      You forgot Cher Lloyd. She is 19; hails from the UK and in 2010 she was on Xfactor with one direction.

      She has sold over a million singles in the USA

      Want u back has been on the Billboard chart for 5 months and counting.

      She has two singles on the USA hot 100

      Her debut LP has debuted at number 9 in the USA.

      • kelly October 10, 2012

        Rita can keep the vogue, she only makes herself look stupid for the whole to see, as she is the only one who cannot sell.

  15. ENOUGH ONIKA October 10, 2012

    The only “breakout” Rita had this year was on her skin. This is once again another paid gig by Jay-Z to keep Rita’s name somewhere in the US cause her music sure doesn’t. I hope the last of 2012 I’ll get to hear at least ONE noteworthy ALBUM from someone (singles not included).

  16. Nick October 10, 2012

    rita has to go to the vogue offices
    rihanna has anna wintour’s number in her cell phone . LOL

    • kelly October 10, 2012

      You are right. She has to go and audition like an extra. Rih is like Tom Cruise – m************ call her PA.

  17. slimsexy October 10, 2012

    Lol I can’t at the meltdowns in here.chill out HATERS,its just Rita ora collaborating with vougue. Its not that serious.Get over it.oops did I say something wrong?(Mariah voice)

  18. Virtuoso Intellect October 11, 2012

    I swear these rhitards need to be committed. How pressed can anyone stan as be kiiii

  19. boopboop October 11, 2012

    rita will never be a breakout star as long as she’s seen as a lesser clone of a more established act. the rihanna comparisons will kill her career faster than her lackluster sales.

  20. aishaaguilerakeys October 11, 2012

    You tried, Sam, but the hype for this chick has already died down.
