- Jay-Z discovered her and signed her to his Roc Nation label. Rita says Jay-Z’s wife, Beyoncé, has been a mentor to her, giving her feedback on her upcoming debut album.

- Her biggest fashion influence is Gwen Stefani. “I love everything about that woman,” she says.

- She’s dating Kim Kardashian’s younger brother Rob Kardashian (25). The two were even spotted out a double date with Kim and Kanye in London recently.

- If she could give have given advice to her 18-year-old self, it would be . . . “Don’t think everything happens overnight. I’ve been doing this since I was 14 and there have been lots of times when I’ve thought “this is it,” and then I’ve been knocked down. I’ve learnt to be patient and let life take its course.”
