Rita Ora is heating up newsstands on the cover of Shape magazine's May 2017 issue and dropping some gems on body image. Or rather she’s giving a whole new meaning to the term “curvy.” Here’s what the 26-year-old told the mag about the subject:
“I’m not going to lie and say I was completely happy with my body before. I knew I could change a few things to improve my stamina, especially on stage. I didn’t start working out to get skinnier — I started working out to feel better. And I think it’s important for women to know that. Don’t be obsessed with being thin. You just have to be fit, healthy, and strong.
"I love my shape because it’s curvy. I have thighs. I’m a size 28 in jeans. And that’s an average, normal size. I’m proud that I’m normal."
