Rita Ora: 'turned Down X Factor Judge Role'
Rita Ora recently revealed that she was offered a spot on the judging panel for The X Factor. The singer only released her debut album last year, and is currently on her first headlining UK tour. The ‘R.I.P’ artist featured on the show as a guest judge, but later said she wouldn’t be able to commit to a whole series…
Speaking to The Mirror, Rita said of being offered a role on the show: "There were talks. But if I were to take on that role it would have to be at a point when I could give it my full attention.
"I have so much to accomplish first and it's kind of a full-time job being on X Factor… It's not like a nine to five. It's constant, for months."
"Not that I have anything against it," Rita assured the paper. "I love it but if I was to take on a full-time role it would be at a point when I'm loads of albums in."
