Rita Ora has opened up about her relationship with former mentor Jay Z and his wife Beyonce, admitting that they are still her biggest idols.
The British singer, 25, praised the power couple, telling Cosmopolitan UK’s September issue, "I'm still happy I've had this incredible experience. Jay is one of my idols and Beyoncé is obviously the queen of life.
“I'll never not appreciate the experience I have had with them and the things I've seen. They've been great mentors. I look up to them a lot.”
Adding: “There are people I respect strictly for their hustling business purposes.”
The America’s Next Top Model host, who recently started working on a new album after being released from Jay Z’s record label Roc Nation in June, found herself at the centre of speculation surrounding the release of Beyonce’s Lemonade album earlier this year.
Ora was labeled as a prime candidate for being “Becky With The Good Hair” – the other woman in Beyonce and Jay Z’s marriage – however quickly shut down speculation after posting a selfie with Beyonce at the Met Gala with the caption: “Family.”
