Rita Ora hates Calvin Harris' music.

The 29-year-old DJ is convinced the 'How We Do' hitmaker dislikes his catchy tracks as she seems less than enthusiastic about turning up for his gigs, but he insists he doesn't mind because their relationship is built on a strong foundation.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, he said: ''Rita doesn't really like dance music.

''She doesn't really like my music but I like hers.

''We're not together for musical reasons, which is great.''

The 22-year-old singer - who began dating Calvin in May - previously admitted that it can be tough having a relationship in the public eye, but she felt they were in a ''great position'' to decide on the nature of their romance and deal with the spotlight together.

She said previously: ''It's always a bit difficult. There isn't really a clear answer when you have somebody that you really like and people take pictures of you liking that person.

''It's a bit of a weird scenario but I always just ignore them. But it depends on where you choose to go as a couple, what you choose to do and how private you really want things to be.

''We are in a great position right now with the Internet to put out what we want to put out and go with the flow, it's OK.''
