A few highlights from Miss Ora's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Harper's Bazaar UK!
On her female role models:
“Growing up I loved Beyoncé and Gwen Stefani because they were honest girls, but people always need a new role model relevant to them. I find it exciting that girls have really connected with me and my music and that I have the power to change someone’s life in three minutes, to wake them up.”
On her sense of style:
"I love flamboyancy and glamour and elegance. I love that over-exaggerated style. I’m a boy girl. I love my trainers and mixing comfort with sleek, clean lines."
On sharing the stage with Chris Martin:
"Performing in front of 50,000 people was such a great confidence-booster. Me and Chris Martin are similar onstage – we don’t do the same thing twice. It made me feel like I could take over the world."
