Rita Ora: Miley Cyrus didn't cross the line
Rita Ora doesn't think Miley Cyrus has crossed the line with her recent outrageous antics.
The 'Shine Ya Light' singer has defended her fellow pop star's controversial actions of late - which include her steamy performance at the MTV Video Music Awards in August and appearing naked in her new music video for 'Wrecking Ball' - insisting there are no boundaries to a musician's artistic expression.
Speaking to BANG Showbiz ahead of 'Unity: A Concert for Stephen Lawrence' at London's The O2, she said: "There is no line. The greatness about what we do is you can do whatever you want. There's no line in my book. Madonna never had a line. I think it's just about how far you want to take it. I don't think it's anyone's place to draw a line for you."
Although the 22-year-old R&B star is quick to defend the 'We Can't Stop' hitmaker, Rita says she has no plans to emulate booty-shaking Miley's twerking dance moves.
She added: "It's about how you want to be perceived. If it's who you are and that's how you want to be perceived then I am all for it. It's a personal preference - she her way, I have my way. Everyone's different. I can't twerk!"
