Rita Ora In Hunger Magazine: 'Cara Delevingne And I Brought Latex Clothes Into Reality'

GALLERY >> Meet Hunger Magazine's Girls

1. RITA ORA

The singer reflects on the year that changed her life and talks female empowerment as well as 'the hottest chick in the world right now', Cara Delevingne. 'When it comes to my look, my music and the videos I have 100 per cent control over it,' she says. 'If I make mistakes, have a little slip, I blame myself. But the Lycra clothes and the latex that you’ve seen me in this season, Cara (Delevingne) and I discussed them, and brought them into reality'. As we can see!

2. JESSIE J

Jessie talks self-image and reveals the sound for her second album. 'It’s still very honest, eclectic and broad: at times just me and a piano, some rock-pop, some soul – it’s sounding great,' she says. As for her image, she's still staying true to herself: 'I live and breathe everything I do, and make sure it always reflects who I am; and the way it will come across when my children are looking at what I did [is important to me]. So with regard to Jessie J – I always make sure I’m representing who I am'.

3. IGGY AZALEA

The Australian rapstress breaks down the importance of having creative control in a male dominated (hip-hop) industry. 'I just know what I like. If you can’t control it, that’s like having somebody else paint your pictures. How could you do that? I never could'. Then responds to people’s surprise reaction on being a ‘white blonde Aussie rapper’. 'It’s small-minded; we live in a global community, but I suppose some people still are small-minded.

4. GRIMES

‘Visions’ pop-prodigy explains how through a sheer DIY approach, she built her brand and audience outside of the traditional label system: 'Social media was the means by which my career was even able to happen. You don’t need to be on a major label to break, she explains. 'I directed all the videos; did all the album art, wrote and produced all the songs. To a degree, I was aware of the fact that I was playing the game, but that’s part of the fun, I guess'.

5. A*M*E

The BBC Sound of 2013 teen star talks touring with fellow Hunger cover star Jessie J. 'She taught me a few tricks of the trade,' she reveals. And since conquering the new K-POP market with No 1 hit ‘Play The Game Boy’, reveals her plans for 2013: 'There has been a lot of female power bursting onto the charts”. “I say, girl power! Let’s get all the number ones. Let’s get all the best show!'

6. GABRIELLE APLIN

As for this British singer song-writer,  who started her own record label three years ago before signing to Parlophone, she looks back at how becoming an internet sensation launched her career. 'I was getting a lot of requests to play in lots of different cities; because everything I did was online I basically just gigged on the Internet'.

Remember that black-and-white shot of Cara Delevingne and Rita Ora which caused a stir? You know, the one of the BFFs nose to nose and practically smooching? Well, it comes straight from Hunger Magazine's new issue and today, we get a sneak peek of what else lays in store.

The Spring / Summer 2013 edition is titled 'Girls, Girls, Girls' so we, naturally, love it. 'I had begun to notice a pattern emerging in film and fashion, but most notably in music; where people (most obviously, young women) were taking control of their creative lives and output in a way I hadn’t seen before” says Hunger’s Editor-In-Chief, Rankin. Too right!

So there's not one but SEVEN cover stars - all bold and beautiful women from the world of music. Jessie J talks self-image, Iggy Azalea discusses creative control while Rita Ora declares that she and Cara are making latex happen for now.

As if all that wasn't enough, supermodel Crystal Renn appears on one of the covers for the magazine's limited edition hardback. Phewf! Say hello to the cover stars in the gallery above and check out the trailer (yes, magazine's have trailers, people) below...
