What an exciting time for Rita Ora!

On Thursday, Tyra Banks revealed that Rita will be the next host of America's Next Top Model. The beauty made the announcement via USA Today following months of rumors that the singer would take her place.

Speaking on the new direction of the show Ora is set to materialize, Banks explained:

"It's no longer just about having the highest cheekbones and best pout and the best hair. My goal is to really get into these girls' heads that I'm not looking for some successful model and I'm not looking for some social-media star. I'm looking for both. I'm looking for a hybrid, because that's where the world is."

Hmm… this sounds like the franchise is looking for a Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid type. Should be interesting!

As for R.O., she believes she's more than capable of embodying the new spirit of the show:

"The approach I wanted to have as a host and judge to the girls is what my career stands for at this moment in time, which is being a businesswoman and being able to do multiple things at the same time, whether it's music or shooting (magazine covers) and being in movies and designing clothes."

Well, you can't deny the 25-year-old IS a triple threat. We can see this one working out!

As for where they are in shooting the season, Ora confessed:

"I actually just finished my first elimination. I can't go into detail, but it was definitely an emotional one."

Ohhh, drama already! Nice.

But wait, that's not all! Paper magazine chief creative officer Drew Elliott, stylist Law Roach and model Ashley Graham will also join the judge's panel this season.

So, what do YOU think of Tyra's picks?

Earlier this year, Rita Ora announced she would be quitting the judging panel of X Factor so she could focus on her music career.

But it looks like the songstress is focusing on her TV hosting career instead, because she reportedly signed up to be the next host of America's Next Top Model!

Tyra Banks' model competition show was cancelled by The CW earlier this year, only to be resurrected by VH1 — with the promise of a complete makeover!

Banks announced that though she is staying on as an executive producer, she would be passing the torch as host for the revamped 14-episode order.

And according to The Sun, Ora already struck a deal to be the new host! A source said:

| Filed under: Music MinuteLegal MattersJay ZBusiness BlitzRita Ora

Get the deets HERE!

It looks like Rita Ora's contract controversy with Jay Z is finally over!

Last year, the British beauty filed a lawsuit against the music mogul's entertainment company Roc Nation, because the label hadn't been releasing her music.

In fact, she said that she only put out one album since she was signed in 2008!

And while Roc filed a countersuit against the singer-slash-actress — alleging that they've "tirelessly promoted" the 25-year-old's career — it appears as though all this drama is officially donezo.

A new document filed on the New York Supreme Court's website seems to show that Miz Ora and Jay have settled their suits out of court, and the gorgeous gal is apparently free to lock down a different deal.

In fact, the blonde may already be doing just that!

Over the weekend, the performer shared a censored Snapchat that featured some papers covered up with giant flower filters, and captioned the shot:
