Peep these pics snapped in Manchester, UK last night- taken at the first night of Rita Ora‘s long awaited ‘Radioactive Tour’.

Kicking off at the Manchester Academy, last night’s showing saw her wow fans with live renditions of songs pulled from her UK debut, ‘ORA‘- responsible for the 2x Platinum single, ‘How We Do‘.

More below…

  Hmm, while all reviews from last night’s show pointing to excellent, we can’t say we understand what Rita was packaged as. For, though her gear would have worked on the runway of niche fashion show, it didn’t really for work for her.

Granted, while we’re sure they’ll make more sense when footage from the night emerges, we’d say Rita could score sweeter units if she became the Tumblr ready girl next door and wait until she is more established before rocking such daring fits.

In saying that, we’re sure that once we see the show, it’s her voice and not her fashion that will take center stage.

Your thoughts?

    Does this poor child own a mirror her image is so off putting i really hope she changes her whole package for the next album cse she looking like garbage right now

    She will be making a loss from this tour. Her ticket prices average $18 and venues are 2000 – 3000 capacity. She has to pay iggy, band, dancers, designers, transport, hotels, staff, share some of the money with the label (360 deals), and 20% management fees. Infact her label will be sharing costs not profits. Roc Nation thinks they are building her fan base now and they will reap the rewards later but only if they knew that will never happen with this girl.

    • wrinkle flop ora January 29, 2013

      Not to mention, she got Peter Dundus from Pucci to custom design her tour. Huate Couture for a tour is normally reserved for mega A list Stars. This girl is D list flop and she is getting haute couture stage wear for a small tour. The tour barley sold out, just last week, her management were begging tickets last week.

      She did not rehearse. She was in NYC, Paris – TWICE AND Thailand partying. She only started rehearsing a few days ago. Rih tour starts in march and she has started rehearsing with Hi Hat.

    • wrinkle flop ora January 29, 2013

      They are saying that people walked out of her show. Poor dat.

    • wrinkle flop ora January 29, 2013

      I heard that Chris brown made a loss from his last tour and it is left him in debt, owing millions, so much so, that he is now desperate: He has the asian ugly ass boy taking his money and get him hooked on the bad stuff. Now, he made friends with drake, cos so he can open for lil wayne.

    Everyday I am discovering new black girls that are too pretty for words with killer vocals but have no careers. Sam can you please do a post on the following:

    Wynter Gordon
    Icona Pop
    Dylan Janet

    • ifyoulightskintheworldisyouroyster January 29, 2013

      Yup I agree on this one. I am to believe TGJ is getting paid for their unreasonable and unsubstantiated support for such mediocre talent. I personally feel like they are force feeding us RIta Ora, and that really not cool, i think her career is testament , it is evident the people are not interested.

      Now on to the talented black girls who are not getting recognition, can you include Tinashe (mixed race)!! now she should have been signed by Roc nation a long time ago and had the budget Rita got , and would have made profit for them as opposed to Rita.

      • MELODY2012 January 29, 2013

        Just googled Tinashe, I will check her music.

    • NΛVI January 29, 2013

      omg WYNTER GORDON IS EVERYTHING >>>>>> her album WITH THE MUSIC I DIE is both her EPs Human Condition Part 1: Doleo and Human Condition Part 2: Sanguine. Samantha is too busy being colour struck and salty over rihanna’s success to bother with his own kind

      • MELODY2012 January 29, 2013

        Wynter is a breath of fresh air. Can you believe she is signed on a major label? she should be getting the same shine as Dawn on blogs.

    • wrinkle flop ora January 29, 2013

      At teedra moses to the list

      • MELODY2012 January 29, 2013

        will check her

  6. MELODY2012 January 29, 2013

    And Sam please add a weekly or monthly article of Where Are They Now? or Promising Stars Then Never Blew Up…Suggestions of the guests:

    Paula Deanda ( I thought she was gonna be the next JLO)
    Kat Deluna ( Her Music Is Nice, don’t know why she is not blowing up)
    BC Jean ( If I were A Boy)
    Teaira Marrie

    • Lax January 29, 2013

      MELODY Good read and also i will say add
      FeFe Dobson
      Tiffany Evans
      Blue Cantrell
      Rich Girls

  7. MELODY2012 January 29, 2013

    Sam I have noticed that you are starting to see the missteps that led to Rita not blowing up regardless of that huge promo. Roc Nation believes so much in this “Shove to people’s throat” theory that they did not focus on the qaulity of music. They did not allow Rita to be a struggling/upcoming artist, they introduced her as a superstar. How are going to market her next project?????? Urban don’t like her and she’s not unique for mainstream.

  8. BeyFRAUD Armstrong (Beyonce’s Weave) January 29, 2013

    ewww she is so dirty and disgusting. Everytime I look at her, i feel like I need a full body wash and fumigate my screen. Everytime this Rita Whora w**** openned her legs, the whiff from that nasty ass p**** was so bad it was marked as a biological weapon of mass destruction.

    Her figure and face is so manly looking, she looks like the living version of homo-habilis. Rita-Whora-Habilis should just give it up, she’ll never be a successful pop artist. Beyonce wasted her money

    • aurora January 29, 2013

      Damme is it ever that serious

  9. BeyWhoUWanna January 29, 2013

    Reuh you know I love you girl, but those clothes ain’t it.

  10. cake like lady gaga January 29, 2013

    At least she doesn’t lip sync.

    Slay the fakers

    • Likica January 29, 2013

      H** hush!
      Avril Lavigne >> Tranny CaCa

      • cake like lady gaga January 29, 2013

        You must really stop spamming TGJ tho

        _/ _/ _/ _/

      • Likica January 29, 2013

        Me? Lol b**** please! You are doing it constantly mentioning Lady GaGa when she’s old news and no one is checking for her generic and repetitive music. Gaga urarara, po popopoker face popopoker face? lol I can’t.

    • OK January 29, 2013

      BTWB is projected to gross over 200 million so apparently some folks are still checking for her, repetitive music or not. 5 years in the game and has 2 tours gross 200 million, that’s not bad for somebody who’s over.

  11. TaylorWins January 29, 2013

    Rita has the R**** stand pressed hunty. Why so mad? Cos you know Rih’s days at the top are numbered?

    • HALF AMAZIN January 29, 2013

      Chile, shut the f*** up

      • Likica January 29, 2013

        No one is mad at all. Rihanna was bigger in her prime than Rita will ever be and she gave good performances. Anyway, aren’t you a Taylor Swift stan? Both Rihanna and Rita Ora can outsing that singing-in-one-tone b****. Stay pressed.

  12. Kenmusic January 29, 2013

    Navy on tgj pls leave rita alone we know she is no treat to riri if u dont like her why checkin for her post to repeat what u’ve being saying since which has so far changes nothin even if her vocal slays rihana but y’all come here on her post callin her flop, s*** over and over just pathetic. She is just starting out just like riri started years back so pls show some class your comment changes nothing cos she and rir doesnt know of ya existence.

    • RESPECT THE VOICE!!!! January 29, 2013

      Um rihanna didnt have a big superstar budget tho like rita no hits ora rihanna worked her ass off rita has been given a budget of rihanna now vs rihanna in 2005 this girl sucks and she needs to stay in uk

    • kate January 30, 2013

      all the negative comments are from the same stupid people, all jealous fans of rihanna, feeling threatened.. :P:P:P

  13. Arie January 29, 2013

    This larger than life image does not work, it will only complicate things. This girl has so much potential but for some reason they are not getting it right with her.

    • RESPECT THE VOICE!!!! January 29, 2013

      Some people have it and some dont. She doesnt have it!

      • wrinkle flop ora January 29, 2013

        She does not have IT. no way will a white blonde, endorsed by bEYONCE, WITH ALL THE MONEY AND HYPE AND PROMO FLOP THIS BAD. The reason she flopped? She does not have ” it ”

  14. slimsexy January 29, 2013

    Wow!wow!I They just played RIP on a radio station in my country!Never even knew she was even known here.This just made my day!.Rita girl and Ritabots ignore all the haters they know she has the potential to be great.Best believe Rita is going places.

  15. Jer January 29, 2013

    Wtf is this s***. When this ho actually does put on clothes they always wear her. Work on that boo

  16. HOWYOULIKEIT January 29, 2013

    Mama what is that dress?

  17. JUELZ January 29, 2013

    Last night was the second time I’ve seen this ‘thing’ in the last six months. Not through being one of the drones that queues up to see her but because of my job. Both times she has been awful. Now, I don’t like this sort of music, I absolutely detest her. So I thought it was just me. But when paying customers who did queue for hours started walking out halfway through both gigs, it really says something about her! She is an Awful artist who can’t sing live! Red arrows welcomed!!!

    • WOW- Celebs January 29, 2013

      I’ve seen her twice in London and I thought that her voice was amazing, however her music is beyond wack, which ruined the shows for me. Miss Ora needs to start setting the trend instead of following it, she needs to check Jessie Ware and more underground artist for inspiration because these dance tunes, hideous outfits and bleached blonde hair do nothing to showcase her true talent.

      • wrinkle flop ora January 29, 2013

        She cannot sing. Very basic.

    • wrinkle flop ora January 29, 2013

      They walked out? LOL LOL Well, I am not shocked paying customers walked out of her ‘ tour ‘ . She flew in high bidget stylist from New York and Hired Pucci to design her tour clothes. Yes, this no name flop, is hiring Haute Couture to do her clothes. The tour started in Jan 28th, but, instead of rehearsing, she was partying in NYC, Paris – twice, thailand and London. She only started rehearsing 2 days before the tour.

      Rih tour starts in march and she and Hi Hat have already started rehearsing . That is the difference between the princess of pop and this flop w**** WHO WILL NEVER MAKE IT AND WILL GET DROPPED.

  18. Beyonce Knowles-Carter January 29, 2013

    This b**** look funny as f***…b**** try again !

    • cake like lady gaga January 29, 2013

      h**, you will remain pressed that she doesnt lip sync like your fraud fave

      now you can have every single seat in the White House h**.

  19. Nicki 4 Zayn January 29, 2013

    I want to stan for her but her image is such a mess.

  20. wrinkle flop ora January 29, 2013

    Rihanna on her 1st album was way bigger, without the hype, promo or budget. This time last year, marks the year when they said Rita Whora was gonna end rihanna. This was when Jay Z took rita to z100.

  21. King beyonce January 29, 2013

    What a ugly b****

    • wrinkle flop ora January 29, 2013

      As you are beyonce fan, tell me why Beyonce is heavily endorsing this girl?

  22. Monstarebel January 29, 2013

    Her outfits are the worst

    • wrinkle flop ora January 29, 2013

      This is custom pucci. They spend hundreds of thousands of dollars getting Pucci to make her clothes, yet people walk out of her shows.

  23. wrinkle flop ora January 29, 2013

    Anyway, Rihanna second LP had 2 number 1 and sold 4 million. With No promotion. The pressure is on you rita. You have top 4 million

  24. wrinkle flop ora January 29, 2013


    they are not reviews. That just one d***** on Twitter. Real reviews are from noted journalist .

  25. wrinkle flop ora January 29, 2013

    mm, while all reviews from last night’s show pointing to excellent, we can’t say we understand what Rita was packaged as. For, though her gear would have worked on the runway of niche fashion show, it didn’t really for work for her.

    Granted, while we’re sure they’ll make more sense when footage from the night emerges, we’d say Rita could score sweeter units if she became the Tumblr ready girl next door and wait until she is more established before rocking such daring fit

    Sam, give it up. Your blind hatred of rihanna is the only reason u stan for this flop. Even you do not sound convinced. She is a no name flop playing to 3000 people in clubs, who are walking out. Yet she hired a NYC stylist , and her uk stylist and got pucci to custom make her these lavish stage costumes. All this money and fan fare for a flop playing in nightclubs, where people are walking out?

  26. skintightjeans January 29, 2013

    Tour??? She’s famous like that to have a tour?? I’m being so serious.

    • Likica January 29, 2013

      LoL gurl true

    • wrinkle flop ora January 29, 2013

      Nah, she playing ( barely selling out ) small venues that house less than 3000 people; like a club tour, however, the spent millions as if she is doing a stadium tour.

    • MELODY2012 January 29, 2013

      I was shocked too……

  27. DONKEY BOOTY January 29, 2013

    Too much hype, too soon. Does she have any TRUE fans who like and will buy her music, as opposed to internet stans who hate Rihanna and want to see her fail?

  28. I HAVE BIG CHESTICLES LIKE RITA January 29, 2013

    Rita is bi. She has s** with Gay Z and Lipsynconce. She has s** with a model. She have s** with anybody.

  29. You Wanna Bey Me January 29, 2013

    Ewwwww! What a hot mess. I’ve seen better creations on ru pauls drag race

  30. PRINCE MACHIAVEL January 29, 2013

    What The F*** Is She Wearing??? Girl Please You’re Not Grace Jones!

  31. lola January 30, 2013

    Jay-Z and Def Jam f***** up on this one. Rita Ora sings a million times better than Riwhorna, but she looks too much like her and is trying too hard to be a superstar. The main problem is that HER MUSIC SUCKS! WTH is with the wack ass music production and melodies???? They are so boring and uninspiring! Had she had catchy tunes, especially club bangers, everyone would have been all up her c****** like stank Riwhorna. That’s it… it’s just the music that sucks. She can keep the blonde hair and colorful lipstick, but she needs a much better stylist and needs to hit the gym more.

  32. kate January 30, 2013

    I really like her ,I think she is going to become huge and she deserves , she is a good singer and loves what she is doing!! haters gonna hate 😛
