The 'R.I.P.' star praises the Destiny's Child singer and wife of her mentor Jay-Z.

Rita Ora has confessed that she refers to Beyonce as an "alien" because she can't understand how she manages to do so much.

The 'How We Do (Party)' singer told Glamour magazine that she was almost left "choking" when she first met the 'Crazy In Love' singer.

"Destiny's Child was my band. I was nearly choking when I met Beyonce, but she is the nicest," she admitted. "I call her an alien because I'm like, 'How do you do everything at once? You can't be human'."

The fashion publication also aimed to divulge details on the singer's apparent relationship with Rob Kardashian – something which she refused to open up on

"Rob’s family make their lives public. Me? I’m very private," she explained. "He's a great friend. But the only relationship I'm having now is with the tour bus."

The singer told Capital earlier this year how thrilled she was to have the 'Love On Top' star's approval.
