Ladies, ladies! We're sure it's just a coinciden–
While we love British singer Rita Ora, it seems that Jay-Z's latest protégé has been accused of copping the Queen of Diamonds AKA Rihanna's style…
By Rihanna herself!
Apparently, Ri thought that Ora's red, flowery semi-sheer gown that she wore to this year's European Music Awards is a straight rip-off of a dress that Rihanna wore to the 2010 American Music Awards (above).
AND it didn't help that during Rita's EMA performance, girl used an UMBRELLA as a prop to protect her from the SHOWERING electric sparks…
Ummm… yeah, we're starting to see similarities here! HA!
One insider reveals:
"Rihanna was furious when she spotted Rita Ora’s dress for the VMAs, a rose gown that looked like one she wore in 2010. When Rita started her career, Rihanna thought it was cute that she was copying her look. But now she’s getting p***ed off, especially as Rita is getting a following by using her old tricks."
And we have to say, back when we were first introduced to Rita's music we totally saw her as a British version of Rihanna! She even facially resembles the Unapologetic singer!
Now, we can't really blame Rita for this style-stealing… she is what her producers and managers make her and it makes sense that they would just wanna construct their
product singer to seem as similar to Rihanna as possible.
RiRi is one of the most successful artists on the planet, thus Rita imitating Ri is practically guaranteed money in their pockets!
But Rita… it's time you found your OWN image, lady! Don't let those music managers and such dictate your look! You've got the insane talent, you don't need to be like Rihanna to be a smash success!
