Rita Ora will go anywhere with Taika Waititi.
The singer recently reflected on her journey in the music industry, revealing how her now-husband helped her through a really discouraging time in her career.
“I spent such a long time fighting to be heard over the course of my experience being in the industry, that I guess I lost a lot of confidence and a lot of hope, fell really low,” Rita told Billboard in an interview published April 19. “And I guess when you’re at your lowest point, you can make a choice. You either kind of get back up and keep going, or you just let it consume you.”
As Rita put it, “And I did that. I got up. I flew to Australia to do The Voice over there, and I met somebody who changed me forever.”
As for who that somebody was? None other than the Thor: Ragnarok director.
“Meeting Taika, who is my husband, I definitely never felt that before,” the 32-year-old shared, “and so I just wrote it all down and I thought, ‘Okay, I think it’s time to make some music again.’ And here we are.”
