Here are pop stars Rita Ora and Iggy Azelia pimping their latest works at BBC Radio 1 studios in London earlier today. I think this is the first time I’ve seen photos of Iggy Azalea where she doesn’t have neon signs pointing to her half-exposed booty, although to her credit, she’s wearing booty-hugging pants.
As for fashionista & part-time singer Rita Ora, she was working her style as we’ve come to expect. This time it wasn’t Adidas or DKNY, but an outfit by designer Philipp Plein.
Rita Ora walked the Fashion Rocks 2014 red carpet arrivals at Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn. Hosted by Ryan Seacrest, the television special celebrated the powerful relationship between fashion and music. Performers included Jennifer Lopez, Usher, Pitbull, Miranda Lambert, Jennifer Hudson, Luke Bryan, Nicki Minaj, Enrique Iglesias, Duran Duran, KISS, The Band Perry, Rita Ora, Nico & Vinz, Afrojack, and MAGIC.

Considering she has a deal with a number of brands and designers, it shouldn’t come as a total surprise that Rita Ora probably also has a deal with Calvin Klein in some way. Moreover, the sheer number of deals hints at the fact that it’s probably not Rita signing the deals, but rather somebody working for her management company (which is of course owned & headed by Jay Z).
With all her non-music projects, I’m just surprised she has time to create new music, but then again, who knows if she’s actually involved with any of the creative process aside from saying “oooh, I like that!” and “hey, that’s a new sound! Let me hear more of that!!”
Yup, this is the state of music! In order to make ends meet, artists will sign their names pretty much anywhere these days. Take Rita Ora, for example, at times, aside from Adidas, she has deals with DKNY, a makeup company, her own fragrance and God knows what else. I’m sure her lyrics and music videos also cater to these relationships, but hey, whatever brings in those millions, right?
The Brit pop singer was seen leaving her London hotel and heading to the Adidas store wearing a multicolored Adidas getup.
