Rita Ora is more than just a cast member in the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey, she’s something of a participant in the book’s steamy bondage acts.
The singer, who is dating Scottish DJ and producer Calvin Harris, said that she is “perfect” for her upcoming role in the movie due to her real-life love of the bondage acts the film will depict.
“I mean, I like a whip. This is why Fifty Shades is perfect for me because I really love the book,” Ora said in an interview with Power 105.1 FM. “But I like unexpected stuff. A tiny bit of [pain], not too much.”
At the same time, Rita Ora has been getting serious with Calvin Harris and said the two are ready to take some time away from the spotlight for a bit.
“I think [he’s] ready for us to go away together, I haven’t been away with him in a long time,” she said. “I want to take my weave out, so it will be nice to spend some quality time.”
The two took their relationship to a new level recently, as Harris produced produced Ora’s new song “I Will Never Let You Do,” which is the first single off her upcoming.
Ora admitted she didn’t know what to expect working with her boyfriend, but in the end it worked out perfectly.
“I was actually a bit nervous because he’s never seen me in work mode. But literally just ten minutes in he was so blunt. I think it’s the Scottish-ness in him, he was just like ‘no’ etc. and it happened so quick. It was a very good experience,” she explained earlier this year.
The interview with 105.1 wasn’t all pleasant. When the hosts brought up a rumor that she’s been seeing Roc-A-Fella boss Jay-Z, Rita Ora took offense.
“Don’t you dare disrespect Beyonce like that ever again in your entire life,” Ora shot back. “You should know better than that… that’s just straight up disrespect. You can’t even go there.”
Rita Ora can be seen in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie when it’s released next year.
