“I said to myself, ‘What is the most honest
thing I can do?’ And in my opinion, it was
opening the song with [Taika’s] voice, from
a voice note. We always send them to each
other back and forth. And it just came out
really naturally and I just think there's
something really pure about inviting people
into my life through my music, which I think
I have done with this album more than ever before.”
Covering our Spring 2023 issue, Rita Ora talks
documenting her love for Taika Waititi in her
upcoming album, harnessing autonomy in the
next chapter of her career, and why she thinks
Louis Theroux would be a great addition to
RuPaul’s Drag Race.
