"I'm afraid of being alone. I'm not afraid to admit that, you know. I'm not embarrassed to admit that. I just hope it's not a never-ending cycle,” she revealed.
“Sometimes love just makes you feel crazy, and that feeling that we have as girls, just to have that feeling, even for five seconds, it's like crack. I mean, don't compare it to that, but you know what I mean. It's like comfort eating.”
Rita has previously been linked with Rob Kardashian and Bruno Mars. On her most recent split with Calvin Harris, Rita explained her peace with the situation. “There was a reason why I split up with him, and there was a reason why I'm at this point in my life where I feel like I have so much musical freedom, and I don't have to explain myself to anybody.”
She added, "It was more of a thing where I was in awe. I was at that point in my relationship where I felt he could do no wrong. I thought he had my back and that he'd never steer me wrong, but then 'I Will Never Let You Down' came out, and everything started to go a bit weird. I don't know if it was because business was mixed with personal or what.”

Ora is rapidly making her mark in Hollywood, most recently playing Christian Grey’s sister Mia in the hit film “50 Shades of Grey.” She’ll soon stun audiences by transforming into a battered drug addict in the Jake Gyllenhall drama “Southpaw.”
The 24-year-old has determined that love will not get her down. “There are ways of doing things and still getting your way. If I'm going to do Rita Ora, it's going to be Rita f**king Ora. It's not about who is on my album or who's featured or the names. It's about a solid body of work that I can call my own.”
Check out Rita’s full interview in Marie Claire’s July 2015 magazine, and don’t miss her in “Southpaw,” in theaters June 15.
