Rita Ora has mixed feelings about her first boyfriend — a 26-year-old man — who she dated when she was 14 years old.
Ora’s thoughts on the relationship, which she talked about during a 2013 appearance on Amanda de Cadanet’s Lifetime show, The Conversation, was recently unearthed in a new unauthorized biography on the singer titled Hot Right Now.
“I would say [he was] about 26, and you have to remember I hadn’t had a relationship before then at all,” Ora explained to de Cadenet.
The “Body on Me” singer, now 24, was a student at London’s Sylvia Young Theatre School at the time. When de Cadenet pointed out that their age difference is considered “child abuse,” Ora revealed her mixed emotions.
“It’s child abuse, really, isn’t it?” she reflected. “I don’t want to say that I suffered it, because I wanted it. I don’t want to say that I was forced to do it. I don’t want people to think I was abused as a kid, but I was definitely [more] mature than I should have been at 14.”
Ora said she felt “confident” and “sexy” due to male attention.
This story just confirms everything I already thought about my girl Rita and really just Europe in general. First and foremost, I guess it’s true that there are zero, and I mean ZERO rules when it comes to sex in European countries. I caught Eurotrip on TV sometime this past weekend and everyone knows how that movie just plays on all the stereotypes of crazy European sex but if the story of Rita Ora and her 26 year old BF tells us anything it’s that every single one of those stereotypes is 100% factual. If there’s grown men over there having sex with grade schoolers like it’s no big thing then Club Vandersexxx and weird Spanish dudes getting naked on trains and bombshell German chicks willing to fuck you in the Vatican must be as common as apple pie. I’ve never even heard of a 26 year old dude trying to hook up with a 14 year old here in the States outside of Chris Hansen’s ‘To Catch a Predator’ but those dudes are your prototypical, first round draft pick pedophiles. Guys who you knew were going to be pedos when they came out the womb, not exactly the types of dudes I’d have pegged for dicking down international pop sensations in the making. I guess that just goes to show how much of a minx Rita Ora really is. We already know that she just loves to make her sexual partners uncomfortable and now we’re hearing stories about seducing grown men when she was fourteen? FOURTEEN?!?!?! At the risk of sounding like one of the aforementioned Chris Hansenites, that’s hot as fuck. Not like statutory rape, that’s not hot. I’m just thinking back to when I was fourteen and trying to hook up. Bumping braces during makeouts was like as good as it got and if you were lucky enough to see a pair of tits at a fish fry or something that was like the highlight of your year. Having an older chick to teach you how to fuck was about as much of a pipe dream as playing in the NFL someday. Shit that you just sat around and daydreamed about in class. Not only was Rita getting that grown wood, she probably learned so much crazy sex stuff at a young age I can’t even begin to fathom where she’s at now. All that stuff you see in those wild foreign pornos where you’re like, nah, that can’t be real, is probably about as boring to her as slow missionary sex with the lights off and socks on is to us. Talk about lifestyles of the rich and the famous.
PS- I guess since we’re talking hot chicks and sex and stuff I’m going to make an executive decision and have this post double as today’s Humpday Hottie installment. I’m busy watching Johnny Cueto shut down the Mets and I really don’t feel like writing another blog. Congrats to Rita though, to my knowledge, QCBL’s first ever repeat Humpday Hottie. An award I’m sure she’ll display proudly on her mantle someday.
