Sep 30, 2015 14:15

Worldwide pop sensation and Academy Award Attendee© Rita Ora had an interview with Yahoo! Beauty about the launch of her new Rimmel London Oh My Gloss! lip color collaboration. Other topics include beauty, being #Confident, the origin of her name and much more. Check out part of the interview below!

Rita on her Rimmel Campaigne:
"It’s actually my second collection with them. It’s a really cool collab. It was really something I wanted to get into. I was really obsessed with the boldness of the colors. I went to the factory and met the whole gang. I wanted to do a spectrum that was really opposite my personality, which was girliness. I’m not really the girliest person in the world, and it’s lovely to see the pastel pinks. I like to experiment with my look and my image."

On her favorite lip color:
"My personal favorite is red, but a lot of people have told me that the nudes and the browns suit me more. Recently I’ve been definitely a bit more comfortable with it. We shot Elle Canada the cover yesterday, and it’s my second nude [makeup] cover, which is a bit crazy, but it looks really cool. I think it was definitely a confidence mask starting out, but now I’m getting into it and really understanding it. I’m starting to experiment more, especially with my eye makeup."

On growing up and maturing:
"I matured much earlier when I was growing up. I started my period when I was, like, 13. I started to get breasts and a butt way younger than other kids. I went to musical theater school where we would wear leotards for dance classes, so you couldn’t really hide anything. I used to get bullied for it. And then at 16, when peoples’ hormones started kicking in, I was all hot again. I think it definitely was a crazy teenage confusion for me. Meeting my fans now they’re like, “Thank you so much for being so comfortable in your skin.” I think they are more grateful for that than for anything. It’s important for someone’s state of mind to feel comfortable instead of feeling like they have to fit in all the time."

On her grandfather and name:
"[My grandfather] was more of a documentarian than fiction. We were around real things. It was when the war was just over so it wasn’t glamorous, but he was very talented. He just passed away. He loved Rita Hayworth and named me Rita. Every Rita I’ve met is really old. But they must have been young at some point in their lives, right?"
