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!
