Rita Ora to record Band Aid 30 charity single

Rita Ora to record Band Aid 30 charity single

Rita Ora will be available to take part in the recording of Band Aid 30, an updated version of ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas?’ in support of the fight against Ebola.
Sir Bob Geldof announced yesterday (November 10) that the likes of Coldplay, One Direction, Sam Smith, Elbow, Jessie Ware, Bono, Foals and more will record the charity single, marking the 30th anniversary of the original Band Aid track.

Ora had been originally on board with the project, but Geldof indicated that she was unavailable to record the song at a London studio on Saturday (November 15) as she will be recording an episode of BBC 1 talent show The Voice.
Now, however, a BBC spokesperson has told Digital Spy that Ora will indeed be free to take part.
“The BBC is more than happy for Rita to take part in the single and The Voice production team is liaising with her management to work around a major diary clash,” they say.
Geldof himself had previously urged the BBC to free Ora up for the event, set to be recorded this coming Saturday (November 15).


Harvey Weinstein says Rita’s his ‘biggest discovery’ as an actress this year

Brit singer Rita Ora has jetted into LA for talks with movie bosses amid buzz over her role in Fifty Shades of Grey. The blonde star, 23, plays Christian Grey’s little sister Mia Grey in the movie based on E.L. James’ hit trilogy.

Fifty Shades is released in February and the How We Do singer has also impressed ‘Mr Oscar’ himself, movie producer Harvey Weinstein, who hired her for his new film, Southpaw, starring Jake Gyllenhaal.
Mr Weinstein called Rita ‘breathtaking’, telling MailOnline she is his ‘biggest discovery’ as an actress this year.

He said: ‘Rita Ora did a sensational job for me and Antoine Fuqua in Southpaw.
‘Her scene is breathtaking, because she’s a very glamorous, beautiful woman; but, we did the opposite, we made her up to look like a tough junkie who’s got a kid to protect.
‘She is heart-breakingly real and wonderful and acting opposite Jake Gyllenhaal, who is riveting in this movie, she holds her own and then some.

‘I will work with Rita again and again and again. Personally, I thinks she’s my biggest discovery as an actress this year.’
Southpaw stars Jake Gyllenhaal as a boxer trying to make a comeback, while at the same time putting his personal life back in order.
The film features other A-list names including Rachel McAdams and Forest Whitaker, and comes out next year.
A source revealed that Rita is also in talks for another high-profile role starring a huge name.

News: Rita Ora signs up for 50 Shades of Grey sequels

Rita Ora might need an earpiece to remember her lines but she’s just gone and signed up for two sequels to Fifty Shades of Grey.

The first movie of the uber-sexy franchise isn’t even out until Valentine’s Day next year but she’s already signed up for two more outings as Christian Grey’s adopted sister Mia.

‘Music is obviously my main focus in life, but the movie was planned for when I had time to focus on it,’ she told The Sun.

Rita stars in 50 Shades alongside Jamie Dornan as Christian and Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele.

It’s no surprise she’s hanging around as Jamie recently admitted how he and Rita like to have a singalong on set.

Rita revealed last month how she had to have an earpiece in while filming to stop her fluffing her lines.

She told Access Hollywood: ‘I had to have someone in my ear on set telling me what to say before I said it because I was honestly like so nervous I forgot everything that I had learnt.’

“I don’t own a second of my life, so much so that my mom is scheduling in dinners,” Rita Ora — the blonde-haired, red-lipped British chanteuse — said, speaking from the Cannes Film Festival. “It’s been insane.”

Indeed, it’s been a whirlwind for the 23-year-old Ora, who has been globe-trotting nonstop to promote her latest single, “I Will Never Let You Down.” But in the past few weeks, whether it has been from a party or on stage, Ora has been diligent in promoting something else: her own clothing line. A close look at her Instagram — with her 2.1 million followers — shows the singer sporting an array of Adidas items, from hoodies and track jackets to shell-toe sneakers and beanies.

In the same vein as Pharrell Williams, who unveiled his partnership with the German activewear brand in March, and following fellow Brit designer Mary Katrantzou, Ora revealed today that she would be the first female artist collaborator for Adidas.

“I’m a massive fan of the brand,” she told WWD. “I grew up working at a sneaker store when I was 16 and am a huge sneakerhead. It’s so cool that I’m able to do this with a brand that I sold when I was younger.”

The line will come in five different capsules rolling out with three global launch days: Aug. 21 for the “Black” line; Sept. 4, for the “Pastel” and “Colorblock Packs” lines, and Nov. 1 for the “Spray” and “Roses” lines. The items will include footwear, apparel, outerwear and accessories ranging in price from $30 for a beanie to $500 for a leather varsity jacket.

The collaboration will go on for three seasons until fall 2015.

The “Black” line — based off of Ora’s London look — will be sold exclusively through selected Adidas Originals stores and on their Web site. Items will include a leather jacket with glow-in-the-dark tooling, a transparent rain jacket, a boyfriend jacket with reptile-embossed leather and wool, and a new pair of sneakers.

“Rita is, first of all, an amazing person and colorful and outgoing,” said Josefine Aberg, design director of Adidas Originals, on why the company decided to collaborate with her. “She has a great way of mixing fashion and streetwear and has a big love for the brand, and it was obvious that we needed to work with her.”
