And it's no doubt her can-do attitude and unapologetic nature when it comes to her career and personal life that has led her down the path to success.
Rita dated Calvin Harris for a year until June , but it ended acrimoniously when the DJ banned her from using the music they had collaborated on for her second album Ora, her second record, has been three years in the making, with the delay mostly being blamed on her fall-out with ex-beau Calvin, who had worked with her on the music.
But thanks to the not-so-friendly end of their relationship, Calvin banned her from using that record and any of the other tracks they had worked on together, meaning she had to go back to the drawing board and delay her sophomore album's release.
However, taking time away from making music is just what she needed, as she added: Rita seemed to send a message in her interview to Calvin Loved-up: The year-old is currently in a long-term romance with Ricky Hil - the son of designer Tommy Hilfiger - who she has been with for almost a year She's in a great place now, though, and is currently loved-up with Ricky Hil, the son of fashion designer extraordinaire Tommy Hilfiger. But before Calvin, who is now fully loved-up with pop superstar Taylor Swift, there was another acrimonious end to a romance that hit the headlines.
Rita dated the brother of Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian Rob in , but it fell apart somewhat spectacularly when the reality TV star went on a Twitter tirade and claimed she had cheated on him.

The star is finally set to release her second album, as well as taking on a judging role on The X Factor Big role: I've never really had that kind of intensity before on things that I didn't think mattered. Doing The Voice really pushed me to a bigger audience, and it meant that I had to work longer hours — this past year has just been a very different way of living.
It's Rita's can-do and no-nonsense attitude about being comfortable in her own skin that has got her to where she is today.
