Yesterday, Rita Ora headed over to NYC’s hotspot, SOB’s for a quick chat with Hot 97 during their “Up Close Series” entitled Up Close With Rita Ora sponsored by Coors Light. During this segment, the artists give an intimate interview and meets with 25 of their fans.
As Rita sat with hosts Laura Stylez and Peter Rosenberg, [Ebro from Ebro In The Morning off in the cut] the British singer and actress touched on touched on a few subjects about her new music, the collaboration with Chris Brown, Wiz Khalifa, fashion and so much more. Within a short time, SFPL learned a lot about Ms. Ora.
A few quotes from Rita
About dating rumors with Wiz Khalifa:
Myself and Wiz have nothing going on at all — just our new single “Religion,” she laughs.
The “Body On Me” collaboration with Chris Brown:
It’s not like I was looking for the next person I got collab with to get me on, she says sarcastically. Chris Brown and I happen to be in the same building but in two different studios. Once I got word he was in the building, we linked, talked and agreed to do a future collab right on the spot. It had nothing to do with management or anything. It was all organic.
Afterwards, Rita meet with her fans and took a special photo with each person.
Rita looked great while rocking a “Looney Tunes” Leather Moschino Jacket that got our immediate approval! She was FLY!
Shouts out to Coors Light & Hot 97 for a successful event!
Chris Brown sits with his dear friend, Ebro of ‘Ebro In The Morning’, along with hosts Peter Rosenberg and Laura Stylez, and chats it up about his past experiences with drugs, speaks on Drake, Karrueche, MJ, losing 20 Million dollars, Usher and so much more.
The Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose divorce saga took an interesting spin this morning. Hot 97’smorning show radio personality Peter Rosenberg revealed today during their ‘Talk About It Tuesday’ segment that Wiz cheated on his wife with twin sisters.
K Michelle doesn’t bite her tongue for *Keith Sweat voice* nobody, she let Elle Varner know she is not pleased with the fact she stole her record in a recent interview with Hot 97’s Ebro In The Morning Radio Show. K Michelle was supposed to be to promoting her ‘Rebellious Soul Musical’ set to air tonight on VH1, the interview went left once Elle Varner was brought up.
Remember when Nicki Minaj and Peter Rosenberg had beef? Yeah me neither . With arguably the largest hip-hop concert in the tri-sate area around the corner Nicki and Rosenberg decided to call a truce. Oh I see what y’all doing over there Hot 97 y’all ain’t slick. Why not get in captain of the “starship” (pun intended) good graces, it makes perfect sense to me. She owes the city a dope performance anyway period. In the interview Nicki discusses why she was mad at the Hot 97 morning show radio personality, she also revealed that she felt she should have hit the stage anyway. Many people including myself felt she should have taken the stage regardless to upstage Rosenberg’s antics. Nicki also revealed she wasn’t even going to perform her pop hit record “Starships” at last years Summer Jam.
No “Starships” ? Riiiigght
The timing of this truce is perfect and both parties are smart on both parts for getting these two together to put to bed the “beef”. NYC wants to see Ms.Minaj in rare hip-hop form it’s long overdue. Peep the whole interview below.
Who knows we might get another Nicki Minaj twerk session on stage at Summer Jam.
