Rita Ora opens up about first love Calvin Harris

British singer Rita Ora, who dates electronic superstar Calvin Harris, recently opened up about how the DJ/producer is her first love.

The R.I.P singer recently explained why she fell so hard for Calvin, saying: “There are so many things. The fact that he got something out of me that I never thought I had. Yes, like falling in love. I just didn’t think I had it. I’d never experienced it before. And I was just like in the wilderness, thinking, ‘Will it ever happen?’”

The pair have been dating since last May and the 23-year-old produced her latest single I Will Never Let You Down – which she has described as a "love song you can dance to" – with the legendary Scottish DJ.

Speaking to Elle magazine, Rita also talked about her latest album and said she was too new to the industy to know what she was doing on the first album.

“I didn’t know what the f**k I was doing on my first album, let’s be honest. I was a kid having the time of my life. And I made a party album – party and bulls**t,” she said, before adding that this time is different.

“This time, I’m still having a great time, but I’m in a great, loving place. Now I want people to see you can have fun and be in love at the same time.”

Rita previously dated Rob Kardashian and early last year was rumoured to be dating David Beckham's close friend Dave Gardner.

She started dating Calvin in March 2013 and in January this year the two stepped out together at the Grammys, silencing rumours that they had reportedly split.

Marks and Spencers unveiled Rita as one of their new leading ladies along with Annie Lennox and Emma Thompson, cementing the star as one of Britain’s top fashionistas.

Rita is also a model for Madonna’s clothing line, Material Girl.
