These are some photos of Rita Ora with Iggy Azalea on the set of their “Black Widow” video a few days ago. Rita’s wearing a white, bobbed wig, and Iggy’s showing off her new dip-dyed-red locks. Rita has recently taken the dip-dyed plunge too. She’s gone rainbow colored, and I’m including those pics in the gallery. This new duet seems like an excuse to pair two rising stars together. It will probably work, but it’s an awful tune. I say that as an admitted Iggy fan.
Rita’s love life has taken off again. She and DJ Calvin Harris broke up in early June after a 20 month relationship. There was speculation that Calvin had blindsided Rita by announcing the breakup on Twitter. Rita was soon spotted canoodling with Justin Bieber in Mexico. Now Rita has moved on to dating Rich Hilfiger, who is Tommy’s son and an aspiring rapper.
Rita plans to release her second album in September, but her efforts have been blocked by Calvin. That’s the story from The Sun (via Heatworld). Calvin reportedly feels bitter over the breakup, and he won’t let her have the songs they made together. Ruh roh:
Oh dear, what do we have here? It seems Rita Ora and her ex Calving Harris aren’t getting on as well as previously made out.
Just last month, Rita took to Twitter to address the split, writing: “I’ve had an incredible time with Calvin, and I will treasure the memories.”
But now the pair seem to be in the midst of a hideous musical war – Calvin has blocked Rita from using any of the songs they wrote together.
Singer Rita finished blasting sounds out her mouth for her new album in February and her last single “I Will Never Let You Down” was written and produced by ex boyf Calv.
However, they are said to have worked on another six songs together which will never be able to delight our ears and music bosses are reportedly worried her album may have to be completely reworked.
A source told The Sun: “Rita’s album has hit a bit of a road block after Calvin pulled all the songs he had worked on for the project before they split. He’d made a lot of songs for her but they’re now likely to go to other artists.
“Calvin wants a clean break personally and professionally. He’s already given her one massive hit so doesn’t feel he owes her.
“He doesn’t want to be linked with her, especially now she’s in a new relationship with Rich Hilfiger.”
If this story is true, that’s pretty harsh of Calvin. It makes you wonder about the reason why he and Rita broke up, right? Rita’s still got collaborations with Prince, Diplo, and Macklemore for the new record, but she’ll be scrambling to replace the songs she’s lost. I can’t believe Calvin is such a big deal in the music biz. His “Summer” song is a joke, but it sold like crazy. I guess Calvin wins the breakup.
