James Arthur Didn't Slam Rita Ora In Radio Rap
X Factor winner says it "wasn't a diss", adding "she's a mate"...
The You're Nobody 'Til Somebody Loves You singer was appearing on Charlie Sloth's BBC Radio 1Xtra's Fire in the Booth when he appeared to diss Ora in a rap.
Lyrics included: "I'm giving 10 million f**ks less than Rita does and that's a lot of f**ks. Yeah, that's a lot of f**ks.
"Some people's auras [Oras] and demeanours can deceive us, but what they really want is a piece of your p***y."
James - who was romantically linked to Rita earlier this year - has since told The Mirror that his rap was not meant as a dig at the R.I.P. star.
He explained to the tabloid: "I was totally bowled over by the positive reaction to my FITB on Twitter yesterday. A big risk for me and mind-blowing to get so much love.
"And for the record it wasn't a Rita diss! She's a mate and I meant that I'd like to live my life to the full and give less of a f**k about everything just like she does! It's something I really respect."
