Fresh New Face: Rita Ora

I love discovering new singers, especially ones who are a bit edgy yet still feminine and who maintain a sense of passion and strength in their music. Check out one of the newest artists to sign to Jay Z’s Roc Nation label – Rita Ora. She was born in Yogoslavia and raised in the UK. She is of mixed heritage. With her bleach blonde hair and fiesty persona, many people are comparing her to labelmate Rihanna. Even though the comparison is understandable, it’s unfounded as Rita has her own style which is sure to evolve as she continues to grow as a person and an artist.

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

    MTVunplugged is rockin a live performance from MsRitaOra rockin with live instrumentals!! Just the right sounds for ending a Sunday. I feel you Jay! Good looking out! Smooches

    Rita Ora isn’t mixed. She’s an Albanian from Kosovo (Former Yugoslavia).

  8. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

    Rita Ora is NOT black or MIXED RACE she is white Yugoslavian so why is everyone saying she is mixed race for goodness sake why…even saw her featured in a black style magazine say what!!!!

  10. Its because mixed race people know their own. She is not necessarily mixed with black – but she does have some sort of ethnicity besides Yugoslavian in her lineage. She is probably not aware of this and I don’t think she is pretending to be something she is not -but it’s very obvious that she has some other racial lines besides European in her background.

    There is no such thing as a yugoslavian heritage. Rita Ora is an Albanian from Kosova. She never shys away from saying she’s Albanian she also speaks and understand the ALBANIAN language

  12. GOTO HELL says:

    “Mixed people know there own”? what a CUNT you are. Rita Ora is WHITE. There is NOTHING you can do to change that you one drop douche bagger. IT IS LIBEL to say she is of “mixed heritage” when you have NO DOCUMENTATION. There are loads of European who do not look classical white to Americans because American cunts like you are FAT, UGLY AND UNEDUCATED.

  13. Your wonderful use of the C word gives me a wonderful insight into your EDUCATED, UPPER CLASS and BEAUTIFUL upbringing. Sweetheart, there are many people in the world who THINK they are white and have NO clue they are mixed because their families are PASSING!!!!! Do you know what PASSING means? Americans know a lot about that as we have had a horrible history of the ONE DROP RULE – Look it up and EDUCATE yourself!!!!

  15. I’d personally love to retire where air conditioning is not needed, and a dog park with benches is nearby.

    Rita Ora has Turkish or middle eastern ancestry her family name is Saatchiou something like that which means watchmaker in Turkish, Turkey has blood ties with Albania.

  17. carol says:

    Who cares anyway she is a pretty girl with a great voice and looks eastern european which she is.

  18. I have read so many articles about the blogger lovers but this post is genuinely a nice post, keep it up.

    my blog; sim free phones

  19. Raider says:

    Rita Ora does not look Eastern European. She does not look European full stop.

    By the way what is looking Eastern European. Eastern European people look different ways except like Rita Ora.

    So stop trying to say she is mixed race when literally EVERYTHING points to her not being so. It’s disgusting that you can just call out people on here when you have absolutely no PROOF of their race. Rita Ora clearly has proof of hers. So before you sprew lies, do some fucking research. It looks incredibly immature when you state so confidently “She is of mixed heritage” when all evidence points otherwise. She’s Albanian, she says herself she’s Albanian, her entire family are and look Albanian. There is not one shred of credible evidence you can bring that says she’s mixed race. There’s plenty of mixed race people out there, so write about them. I don;t understand why you have to make shit up about people. And by the way, saying you just “know” she’s mixed race is not valid.

    You tell people to educate themselves in these comments, but you clearly need educating yourself. You have absolutely no knowledge of Albanians or their history but you think you can state so easily what Rita Ora’s race is when you neither know her, nor her history.
