‘My heartbreak inspired my album’
Singer Rita Ora admits that her split with Scottish DJ Calvin Harris inspired her upcoming music album.
The album is inspired by her break-ups with both Calvin Harris and ace designer Tommy Hilfiger’s son Ricky, reports mirror.co.uk.
“Yeah, I’ve got about two of those records. But the thing is I get angry first then I get emotional. I hate that person and then I’m like, ‘Wait a minute, hold on’,” The Sun newspaper quoted Ora as saying. Ora dated Harris for around a year and split in 2014 while they were working on her second studio album.
The break-up didn’t appear to be an amicable one as Harris stopped her using tracks he’d penned for the album and even withdrew permission for her to perform number one single “I will never let you down” at the MTV Movie Awards that summer.
Soon the 25-year-old was linked to Ricky, though that relationship lasted for a year. It’s not the first time that stars used their break-up as inspiration, Taylor Swift has songs written about her ex-boyfriends.
