In a crazy industry like this, you need a good support system and great friends to get you through it all!
Instead of staying mum on love like she usually does, Rita Ora decided to get pretty candid about her failed relationship with Calvin Harris in March's Nylon magazine — SURPRISE!

The songstress opened up about the delay of her album and says the breakup with Calvin made her take a step back and reevaluate musical priorities.
"I had a breakup, or whatever, and it really made me realize what I was trying to do. I had been fixated on this love fantasy, but really it wasn't like that, and I had to take myself back. For me, this was my moment where I had to be real and tell the truth and be honest. I love my pop songs, and I'm still gonna be pop, but this has just got a lot more depth to it."
It sounds like she went back and changed a couple of songs after she and the famed DJ split!
Although her union with the We Found Love DJ failed, the 24-year-old's relationships with some of the most successful women in the industry are still going strong.

She's the biggest supporter of all of the ladies trying to find their place in the entertainment world!
"I've always been really outspoken it, like telling another woman, 'You killed it.' I don't think a lot of females do that these days, especially in this industry. It's the same with all of my friends—with [Charli XCX], with [Iggy Azalea], with [Cara Delevingne] and Katy Perry, who's an amazing person inside and out and so talented, the biggest star in the world. She's always been the same, and she's just so funny and fun and loud and really cool. I'm like, 'Yeah! That's what I wanna be like! I wanna stay that way!' You've gotta really be sacred with these friendships, ’cause people can corrupt them."
Luckily for Rita, the feeling is mutual from her lady friends!
The Boom Clap singer says Rita is as real as it gets:
"Rita Ora the person is the same as Rita Ora the artist. She's real and wild and fun and caring and kind. I have so much respect for her and the way she is in the world."
It's very refreshing to see AH-Mazing friendships like these between women and just everyone in general in entertainment!
Not everything has to be a competition!
