The 'Party And BS (How We Do)' singer has opened up about getting to meet R&B star Beyonce.
Rita Ora has described Beyonce as a "superwoman" after talking about when she met the Love On Top' singer for the first time after being signed to Jay-Z's Roc Nation record label three years ago.
The 'R.I.P.' singer says true former Destiny's Child star has been an "inspiration" to her, and admits she hopes to echo Beyonce's career, particularly her ability to seamlessly juggle family life and music at the same time.
"Beyonce was, and still is, such an inspiration," Rita told The Sun. "She's been in the game for so long you think she's older, but she's only 30.
"The first time I met her I was so nervous," Rita revealed. "I hugged her and told her she was my inspiration.
"She's a superwoman with a career and a family," she added. "I hope one day I can do the same - baby in one arm, microphone in the other."

'Countdown' singer Beyonce is said to be back in the recording studio this summer, working on the follow-up to her 2011 album '4'.
21 year-old star Rita has previously admitted she also admires Bajan pop singer Rihanna for her "hardcore work ethic'.
Rita Ora releases her new single 'Party And BS (How We Do)' this Sunday (12th August) before launching her debut album 'ORA' on 27th August.
