On the show, Ora wants to share some of her wisdom with the aspiring models. She also credits her friends in the entertainment and fashion industry for getting her where she is today.
"I'm lucky to have friends in this industry, and I thought maybe if I call them and we create a credible panel and give a different perspective of America's Next Top Model, I could actually be the host. I'm not here to tell them what to do. I'm here to show them that they can do this, too. I'm an example of what you can achieve because it's worked."
Along with her hosting and fashion duties, the singer has a busy schedule packed with music and movie projects. She will reprise her role as Christian Grey's sister, Mia, in the Fifty Shades of Grey sequels, Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed. In addition, Ora has since returned to the recording studio after she settled her six-month-long legal battle with Jay Z's label Roc Nation, reports the Daily Mail. She is said to be done with her new album, which she is excited to release.
"I'm desperate to get my music out," she recently told the Evening Standard. "I think I'm now at a point in my life where I have an amazing label, we really have taken it to the next level. It's very song-based."
Ora also talked about the direction that she's taking on her new album, as cited by Idolator.
"It's very real – real instruments, believable lyrics. I've not only grown as an individual but as a woman. People are going to see that. It's just everything from my personal life to what I couldn't do due to previous situations and now being free. I've never been freer than I am right now."
