Rita Ora Becomes The Target Of ASAP Rocky On Misogynistic New Track 'Better Days'


ASAP Rocky Rita Ora

Rapper A$AP Rocky has attacked singer Rita Ora in a track off his new LP, At. Long. Last. A$AP, directing some very offensive and misogynistic rhymes at the British singer. It’s unclear why the rapper has chosen to target Ora on the track, as the pair had appeared to be friends and were never even rumoured to be an item.

ASAP RockyASAP Rocky has some nasty words for Rita Ora.

On ‘Better Days’ the 26 year old Harlem native raps, "I swear that b**ch Rita Ora got a big mouth/ Next time I see her might curse the b**ch out/ Kicked the b**ch out once cause she b**ched out/ Spit my kids out, j***ed up all in her mouth and made the b**ch bounce.”

Fifty Shades Of Grey Review


Very Good

After all the hype, it's impossible not to expect steam from this adaptation of E.L. James' mommy-porn bestseller, but the average episode of Red Shoe Diaries is friskier than this movie. Still, it's a well written and played drama, building an unusual romance with a series of scenes that are sometimes sexy but never actually transgressive. And the nicest surprise is that in the hands of director Sam Taylor-Johnson it becomes a witty tale of female empowerment.

It's set in the American Northwest, where Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) is finishing her studies as an English literature major when she's asked by her journalist roommate Kate (Eloise Mumford) to interview Seattle's most eligible bachelor, billionaire Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan). Ana's awkwardly confident approach immediately gets under his skin, and he pursues her as if she's a corporate acquisition, complete with non-disclosure agreements and a contract that would make her submissive to his dominant. But she isn't so sure about all of this, and as she falls for him, she begins to make him break his own rules. Of course he thinks she should be punished for that.

Essentially, this film is mere foreplay, as the push and pull between Ana and Christian cycles through various set-pieces on the way to an ending that is clearly designed to get fans in a lather for films based on the second and third novels in the trilogy. And the studio would be wise to keep Taylor-Johnson and screenwriter Kelly Marcel (Saving Mr Banks, another story of male-female control) on board, as they have clearly beefed up James' novel with a strong dose of wry humour, bringing out the deeper themes rather than focussing on the under-developed plot and characters.

Fifty Shades Of Grey - Clips And Extended Trailer


When reserved college girl Anastasia Steele meets mysterious businessman Christian Grey for an interview, she ends up feeling rather foolish, fearing that she's messed up the opportunity. Mr. Grey doesn't see it that way however; on the contrary, he develops a strong romantic fixation with her. Anastasia is flattered, but soon realises that this guy isn't the sort to take her to take her out for romantic meals or shower her with gifts. Nonetheless, he is an enigmatic presence in her life that she cannot hope to resist, and she soon finds herself treading deeper and deeper into this man's life. As their relationship progresses, he reveals his unusual sexual desires which involves Anastasia signing a written document in order to give him permission to do whatever he likes with her. Enchanted and seduced by the sense of unknown that lies ahead, she agrees.

Jake Gyllenhaal Gets Ripped For Southpaw: Is There Anything He Can't Do?


Jake Gyllenhaal Rachel McAdams Naomie Harris Forest Whitaker 50 Cent Rita Ora Antoine Fuqua

Jake Gyllenhaal is a shape shifter. There is no other explanation. We barely recognised him whilst he was filming 'Nightcrawler', with his sunken cheeks and generally gaunt demeanour, but now he's transformed yet again into a sinewy muscle-man for his forthcoming boxing drama 'Southpaw'.

Gyllenhaal looks completely different to usualGyllenhaal looks completely different to usual

He's never exactly been a typecast actor, but it seems Jake Gyllenhaal can literally perform in any role. He can be unnerving ('Donnie Darko'), not to mention dedicated ('Brokeback Mountain') and now it seems he can manipulate his body in a matter of months. He lost thirty pounds to play the creepy, morally corrupt crime journalist Lou Bloom in Dan Gilroy's latest movie 'Nightcrawler', and now he's picked up his calorie intake and bulked up immensely to play a middle weight boxer in Antoine Fuqua's 'Southpaw'. We only wish we had that much self-discipline!

Budding journalist and college student Anastasia Steele has never been the adventurous type in any respect, so when she is faced with the prospect of interviewing the handsome and frighteningly mysterious young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she is more than a little nervous. The interview doesn't go quite as well as she'd hoped, but it seems Christian has other interests in her. While he doesn't pander to the usual expectations of romance in a relationship, there's something utterly captivating and addictive about him that Anastasia just can't resist - even when he reveals to her his innermost unusual sexual desires. Thriving on the feeling of being in control, all he wants to do is tie Anastasia up and introduce her to a whole new world of sensual experiences. But is she curious enough to sign away her body to a stranger?

Various Artists - Pepsi Beats Of The Beautiful Game Album Review


It makes absolute logical sense for any company to want to be affiliated with the biggest events in the world, which the football World Cup unarguably is. But what to do when your biggest rival is a corporate partner of said tournament? In this case, the answer is a compilation record.

Various Artists - Pepsi Beats Of The Beautiful Game Album Review

Whilst a couple of months may already have elapsed since the World Cup ended, this does afford us the ability to review this album using a host of clichés and tournament-inspired analogies.  Santigold's 'Kicking Down Doors' signals the start of play with a pounding dub beat on a track that fails to take off. The arrival of a collaboration between Rita Ora and Calvin Harris - 'I Will Never Let You Down' - is like Spain making an appearance, but the resulting club number is as disappointing as the showing from the former champions. The decision to allow Janelle Monae to give Bowie's 'Heroes' an urban makeover gets a red card, but Don Omar adds the correct sort of bite to proceedings with a carnival-enthused 'Pura Vida'.  

The second half begins with a substitution to the likeable quirky pop of 'Crescendo' by Jetta, before Kelly Rowland takes centre stage. Unfortunately, 'The Game' is a tuneless effort that falls well beneath the high standard of the output she has previously been involved with and leaves us needing a hero as we enter the latter stages of play. It would be too much now for the result of the album to be saved, but like a late consolation, it doesn't mean you can't put positives into the outcome. It isn't forthcoming though, with the remainder playing out a drab affair lacking impact and passion. Likening this to the England team's performance seems too obvious, but given the lack of expectation in the first instance, is actually quite appropriate.

Iggy Azalea - Black Widow ft. Rita Ora Single Review


Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora come together in the new single 'Black Widow', to bring us a song about a failed relationship that causes the titular black widow personality to come out and avenge said relationship. But is this pairing a match made in heaven, or will it go on to stain these artists' careers?

Iggy Azalea - Black Widow  ft. Rita Ora Single Review

Australian rapper Iggy Azalea and British singer Rita Ora both adopt different accents (and vocal pitch, in Azalea's case) in their career, so it makes sense that these two 'acts' are combining for what amounts to little more than an imitation performance of soulless hip-hop and pop music. Incidentally, the accompanying music video is an upsettingly awkward rip-off of 'Kill Bill', even down to Michael Madson's unfortunate inclusion.

The hook is sung by Rita Ora and, thankfully, plays out as the most bearable part of the whole track. Her voice introduces real heart into the otherwise desolate wasteland of this single - supposedly where creativity went to die. However, despite her voice, the hook is totally forgettable. Written by Stargate (Tor Erik Hermansen and Mikkel Storleer Eriksen), Benjamin Levin, Katy Perry, Sarah Hudson and Azalea, the lyrics are repetitious and the beat sounds bleak and empty.

While the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) are clearly prestigious and a desirable addition to any artists’ award collection, it would seem that they are also more than a little hazardous - as Australian rapper Iggy Azalea found out on Friday (22 August) night. The Fancy hit-maker was performing a pre-MTV VMAs concert with Charlie XCX at the Avalon Theatre in Hollywood when she backed right off stage.

Ora cancelled her Teen Choice Award performance at the very last minute

When news broke that the British singer wouldn't be taking the stage at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, it was never explained why. But now Ora has finally given a reason for her absence, revealing that it was all down to her ex-boyfriend, Scottish DJ Calvin Harris.

From Stages To Film Sets: Singers Who Have Traded Microphones For Acting Careers


Andre 3000 Harley Sylvester Rita Ora Iggy Azalea Adam Levine Rihanna Rizzle Kicks Joss Stone Justin Bieber

It seems if you can sing, you should be able to act with a whole host of super singers putting down their microphones and picking up a script instead. Justin Timberlake has made one of the most impressive transferences from stage to screen with exciting supporting roles in hits including The Social Network and the Coen brothers' Inside Llewyn Davis and taking the lead role opposite Mila Kunis in Friends With Benefits. 

Beyoncé successfully combined both singing and acting in the musical drama, Dreamgirls, and also tried her hand at pure acting in everyone's favourite detective film, The Pink Panther and in American thriller, Obsessed

Of course, there are some popstars that are unlikely to ever find themselves in Oscar contention, such as Justin Bieber following his role in two episodes of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation back in 2010, and Joss Stone's slightly more substantial TV role as Anne of Cleves in The Tudors. But which serious fan of The Spice Girls didn't love their whirlwind musical comedy Spice World? And who didn't enjoy Britney Spears' turn in the girls on tour comedy Crossroads

Fifty Shades Of Grey Trailer


Anastasia Steele is a shy college student who is forced to interview an enigmatic entrepreneur named Christian Grey. Their first meeting doesn't go as well as planned and subsequently she is shocked when it appears that he has a seemingly romantic interest in her. He's not the sort to go out on drunken nights or make any of the usual romantic gestures, but Anastasia remains captivated by the intense sense of mystery surrounding him. Some of that mystery is unveiled, however, when he reveals his sexual desires to her, but it seems even then his wishes are not of the usual kind. Christian asks Anastasia to sign a document in order for them to be intimate, and that coupled with the rope and tape he recently purchased starts to make her realise just what sort of sensual adventure she's about to experience.

Fifty Shades Of Grey Trailer


When young college student Anastasia Steele meets a mysterious wealthy businessman named Christian Grey, she had no idea she'd be embarking on the sexual adventure of her lifetime. While he makes it clear that he's not the type for wild nights of drunken laughs or even for a bunch of flowers and chocolates, Ana can't help but feel irresistably intrigued by the beguiling sense of unknown surrounding her new obsession. Soon though, all is revealed when Christian insists she sign a document before they enter into any kind of intimacy, and putting that together with the bunch of rope and masking tape she saw him purchase at the hardware store, she starts to realise that she's about to enter into a relationship that is more out of the ordinary than she could ever have possibly imagined.

Kelly Rowland Janelle Monae Idris Elba Rita Ora

Kelly Rowland is pregnant! Unlike other celebrity pregnancies, the news came straight from the source this time, with the singer posting a photo on her Instagram of a baby-sized pair of Air Jordans. Aw, isn’t that the cutest product placement you’ve ever heard of?

Kelly Rowland
Congrats on the baby. And the general awesomeness.

It’s been a whirlwind year for Rowland and her longtime beau, Tim Witherspoon, who  just tied the knot a month ago. The couple celebrated their love with an intimate ceremony in Costa Rica on May 9.

Kelly also recently released a new single, The Game, as part of Pepsi’s World Cup visual album. The album features Rowland, alongside the likes of Janelle Monae, Rita Ora and Idris Elba, of all people, and includes audio and visual contributions, centered around the theme of, y’know, the Game.

Nicolas Cage Wears Nicolas Cage Meme T-Shirt To Guns N' Roses Concert


Nicolas Cage Macaulay Culkin Ryan Gosling Rita Ora Madonna

In what may be our favourite Instagram post of all time, rock band Guns N’ Roses have shared an image of Nicolas Cage…wearing Nicolas Cage. The band posted the image, which features the iconic actor wearing a cowboy hat, blue blazer, copious beads around his neck, a pair of sunglasses and…finest of all, a t-shirt featuring an image from one of his famous fan-made memes.

Nicolas Cage may be one of Hollywood’s most famous actors, but over the past few years it’s the collection of memes and fan videos dedicated to him which he’s become best-known for. Cage’s habit of totally surrendering himself, body and soul, to a role has led to a few onscreen outbursts which fans go freaking nuts for.

Newly Baptised Bieber Responsible For Calvin Harris/Rita Ora Split?


Rita Ora Calvin Harris Justin Bieber

We may have only heard about Rita Ora and Calvin Harris’ split on Friday, but the DJ confirmed on his Twitter account that they had split “some time ago.” Rita has since been since out and about in West Hollywood wearing a racy black minidress and looking like a single lady on the prowl. Although neither Rita nor Calvin have explicitly said what the cause of their split was, TMZ have been reporting that it has something to do with Justin Bieber. Of course it does, if there’s any sort of trouble in celebrity land, let’s all just assume it’s got something to do with Bieber. In between getting baptised in New York hotel rooms could it be that he's a home wrecker too?

Rita Ora Calvin Harris Split The couple seemed happy together at the BRIT awards back in February

So, what exactly are TMZ saying then? Well, apparently Rita and Justin were getting pretty “touchy feely” while they’ve been in the recording studio together over the past few months. Calvin heard that they had been a little over friendly - apparently Rita would sit on Justin’s lap and he would massage her back, and the DJ, unsurprisingly, wasn’t happy about it.

Was Rita Ora, Calvin Harris Split Caused By Justin Bieber Secret Massages?


Rita Ora Calvin Harris Justin Bieber

Rita Ora and Calvin Harris have confirmed their split after having dated for almost a year. The music couple had a reportedly amicable break-up but the 'Shine Ya Light' singer's alleged dalliance with her fellow popstar Justin Bieber is said to have prompted the separation. "To address speculation - myself and Rita ended our relationship some time ago. She is a beautiful, talented woman & I wish her all the best," the Scottish DJ tweeted.

Harris reportedly called time on his relationship with Rita after catching wind of an alleged closeness between his girlfriend and Bieber, who had been working together in the studio over the past few months. According to TMZ, Justin and Rita were spotted being "touchy feely" with each other, including Rita receiving back massages from the 'Baby' singer.

"Word got back to Calvin, Justin and Rita got touchy feely with each other while they were in the recording studio together over the last few months," said the gossip site's source. "Calvin heard they were very affectionate - she would sit on his lap [and] he would rub her back."

Made In America Trailer


Made in America Festival is an annual music event founded by rapper and businessman Jay-Z in 2012. Following its inaugural year, it was announced to take place in Los Angeles for the later events and its arrival has since become an important symbol of unity. Jay-Z created the festival in a bid to join together musicians of all genres, creeds and cultures to emphasise the bond between music-lovers regardless of any animosity that may have existed between hip hop artists, rock artists and pop artists in the past. It is an attempt to build a world of peace and diversity because, in the words of Run DMC star Darryl McDaniels, 'Music succeeds where politics and religion fail'.

'Made In America' is a music documentary based on the new festival of the same name founded by Jay-Z who is also the movie's executive producer. It has been directed by double Oscar winner Ron Howard ('The Da Vinci Code', 'Apollo 13', 'Rush', 'A Beautiful Mind') and features behind-the-scenes clips and interviews of various music superstars including Run DMC, Rita Ora, Kanye West, Janelle Monáe, Tyler The Creator, Skrillex, Santigold and The Hives. The film premiered at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival and was nominated for 'Outstanding Television Documentary' at the Black Reel Awards.

Made In America is available on VOD and DVD 19 May 2014

Calvin Harris Rita Ora

Calvin Harris’s latest track Summer has shot straight to the top of the UK charts, making it his sixth number one single. Toppling Knocking Waves by Mr Probz off the top spot, Summer also beat out Kiesza’s Hideaway, Sigma’s Nobody To Love and John Legend’s song, which he wrote for wife Chrissy Teigen, All Of Me.

Summer is said to have sold nearly 7,000 more copies than Knocking Waves, marking it as the clear number one.

Zac Efron Attends MTV Movie Awards In His Best Look Yet - Shirtless


Zac Efron Rita Ora

If you’re looking for a general MTV Movie Awards rundown, let us point you in that direction. This post deals almost exclusively with Zac Efron’s abs because we all need more of that in our lives. When Zefron won the award for best shirtless performance (for his role in "That Awkward Moment") during Sunday's show, there was only one suitable course of action. Speeches were pointless, when fans really wanted to see just one thing from the actor.

Zac Efron
Efron looked much more dapper at the Oscars, but we might prefer the MTV Awards look.

So he obliged.

E.L. James' bestselling trilogy Fifty Shades of Grey has become a cultural phenomenon since the publication of the first instalment in 2011. The trilogy is being adapted into a series of films which, despite the first tame poster released yesterday by Universal, promise to be as risqué as the books.

Although the trilogy has sold in their millions, for those of you who need a refresher or simply haven't read the books, here's a quick outline of the characters involved and the actors who will play them in the upcoming film.

All I can say is that we've definitely done some music together."

Rita Ora has a pretty booked up schedule ahead of her.

We're not exaggerating when we say 'the best' either, because Ora has been working with the one and only Prince!

"It's official! I've been cast in @FiftyShades of Grey as Christian's sister Mia. #FiftyShades," tweeted Rita.

She looked every inch at home as she strutted her stuff in lace-up heels against a true New York backdrop of graffiti, scaffolding and a yellow taxi.

GQ Magazine got straight to the heart of the issue during their recent chat with everyone's favourite member of One Direction, Harry Styles.

The 19-year-old has taken on a Mick Jagger-esque legend regarding his sexuality in recent months, and speculation he is in a relationship with Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw refuses to go away. Until now.

Asked rather matter-of-factly about his alleged romance with Grimshaw, the 19-year-old pin-up asked the interviewer, "What rumours would they be?" Pressed to address speculation that he and Nick, 28, were lovers, Styles replied, "Oh, really? I didn't even know. We're not dating, no. We're just friends."

Glastonbury Festival Weather 2013: Get Your Wellies On

The weather forecast for the Glastonbury Festival this weekend does not look brilliant: expect a lot of cloud. However, those visiting the Glastonbury Festival this year may be pleased (or rather not depending on your predisposition) to hear the traditional mud is likely to be back. Around 135,000 people attend the festival annually and this year is no exception. The festival site, located near the Somerset village of Pilton, opened its gates for early goers. Most slept in their cars overnight lying in wait to get a decent (probably on higher ground) site to set up camp.

Iggy Azalea and Wretch 32 had entertained the crowds at the Old Firestation on Lambeth High Street, though it was Rita's duet with Cara that really raised the roof. 

Cara showed off her dance moves and rapping skills on a rendition of Notorious BIG's 'Juicy' - and, well, they weren't half bad. The model wore a black jumpsuit with elaborate jewellery and high top sneakers, while pal Rita opted for a blue and black top with black skirt.
