We were oh so lucky to be able to feature so much UBER talent at our One Night in Los Angeles post-VMA shindig, and one sparkling red carpet star (courtesy of Emilio Pucci!) simply blinded us with her charismatic shine and INSANE vocal ability!

British hit maker Rita Ora slayed some of our favorite tunes from her debut album ORA — out now in the UK — and backstage we grabbed our frosty haired beauty for an intimate kiki about her favorite/most amusing VMA experiences, the recent chart-topping success of her freshman album, AND her immediate future plans which include LOTS of promotion in America!! YAY!!!

Check out our chat with the charming Rita Ora (above)!

Oh and she totally dishes on her first meeting with the venerable Jill Scott… SO MANY HEARTS!!

Queen Latifah's Steel Magnolias Confirms Premiere!

Oh! And it's MUCH sooner than we expected!

Tony nominee Kenny Leon's remake of the 1989 emotional drama Steel Magnolias starring Queen Latifah, Condola Rashad, Alfre Woodard, Jill Scott, Adepero Oduye, and Phylicia Rashad, will air on Lifetime this October 7th!

This cult film — originally starring Julia Roberts, Sally Fields, Dolly Parton, Shirly MacLaine, Daryl Hannah and Olympia Dukakis — centers around a group of Louisiana women who habitually come together at a local salon. The story explores the importance of friendship in the face of life's great tragedies.

We're VERY excited to see this modern take on such a beloved classic… and we instantly adore any film featuring The Queen!

Although we're not sure if Q. Latifah can deliver Sally Field's "Whyyyyyy" cry in quite the same fashion…

Ha!

Rita Ora's Insanely Passionate Jill Scott Cover!

| Filed under: AnglophiliaMusic MinuteJill ScottJay ZPerezTVRita Ora

Girl's got them golden pipes! Now she just needs songs that better feature her beautifully lilting voice…

Jay-Z's newest protege Rita Ora is already a bombshell in the British music world, and her sweet self is finally stamping her musical signet on the good ol' US of A!

Rita covered Jill Scott's emotional smash He Loves Me (above) at an intimate club show in NYC recently, and chicka's rendition is straight up goose-pimply!

The Albanian Brit's en-point voice supremely pierces the soul, making us crave MORE of her red-velvet vocal cake, which we are ANXIOUS to take a massive CHOMP of when the Misses debuts her first ever album ORA August 27th!

Yummm… a delight of both ORAl and aural pleasures!

You lucky lucky Philly cheese-steaks you!

We'll take multiple servings, with extra musical CHEDDAR please!

Jay-Z's Made in America Philadelphian music festival just got a major injection of magic-sauce with the additions of legedary hip-hop group Run DMC, and rap's current golden boy Drake!

Jay has also added Nicky Romero and Jill Scott, and has spanned genres to include Swedish House Mafia DJ Alesso, bluesy string-picker Gary Clark Jr, and Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell!

This redonkulous two-day fest featuring Pearl Jam and Jay himself, ignites Sept 1st… and there MAY be a minuscule chance that our PRESIDENT Barack Obama might rock out with his cockerel out.

Holy guacamole.

We pledge allegiance to The United States of Made in America, one nation under Jay-Z!
