Rita Ora Declares Her Body Curvy and Loves It

“I have thighs."

Published April 13, 2017

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."

Really, Rita? Read more from her interview at Shape.com.
