Ages ago, somebody told me a very memorable quote about friendship “If you want to be greater in life, steal every piece of information you need from your friends, learn it, let them teach you and then improve it”. In business that would be called “Benchmarking” just looking around, trying to find answers to our issues in other people issues. In Showbiz, I don’t know how it would be called, but I bet you, we haven’t seen a catapult to fame since the Kim Kardashian sex tape, until now, with the new Rihanna-Rita Ora Case.
British singer, Rita Ora will be replacing Rihanna in “The Fast and The Furious 6.”
The producers from the upcoming sequel of “The Fast and The Furious” have confirmed Barbados singer Rihanna won’t be participating because of a full agenda. Instead the role that was assigned to Chris Brown former girlfriend have fallen in the hands of British singer, Rita Ora.
Rita Ora is a British pop singer, who started in London singing on bars and then, participating on the BBC reality tv show that chose UK contestant por Eurovision 2009, months after, the singer withdraw the competition saying she wasn’t ready. After singles “How We Do”, “Shine the Light” and”R.I.P” and collaborating with artists like Kanye West, Chris Brown and Drake, Rita Ora positioned herself in the top of the UK singles Chart.
After the release of her album “Ora” the press started the topic of a comparison between Rihanna and Rita Ora. Aspects like the name, the voice and specially the looks gave Ora somebody to be related with.
Rihanna impressed the producers with her performance in “Battleship” but the schedule just wasn’t right for her, so the producers had Rita Ora tested for the role. The results were outstanding. The director and the producers loved Ora’s look and attitude. They decided to give Rita Ora the role of the female villain in the upcoming “The Fast and The Furious 6″ starring Vin Diesel, Luke Evans, Dwayne Johnson, Paul Walker and Michelle Rodriguez.
According to the sources, the singers became best friends in London. Ora doesn’t mind being compared with Rihanna, otherwise she considered a honor. We are expected to see if this role acceptance won’t be an obstacle on their friendship.
