Rita Ora has admitted she has a crush on Justin Bieber
"I like his stance and how he carries himself."
Rita, 23, is currently single following her split from Scottish DJ Calvin Harris this summer. At the time, there were reports that her friendship with Justin was partly responsible, after the pair grew close while working together.
Rita had told radio DJ Ryan Seacrest that the reason she pulled out of the ceremony at the last minute was because Calvin had stopped her from performing I Will Never Let You Down, which they recorded together while still a couple.
"I was supposed to perform," Rita said. "(But Calvin) wrote and produced the song…he owns the rights to it… so (he) has to approve anything TV-wise… He didn't approve the Teen Choice Awards."
Asked whether there was any unresolved bitterness between the pair, she added, "You should ask him. You write a song with somebody and I guess there's some stuff that comes with it."
Calvin Harris hit back at Rita this week over her Teen Choice Awards comments
The star admitted she was angry, but "more for my fans" than for "my own selfish reasons".
On Wednesday, Calvin responded. "You'll only know 1 side of the story RE Teen Choice awards because I choose not to talk to the papers about every aspect of my personal life," the 30-year-old tweeted.
"But just know I had a damn good reason."
Rita and Calvin dated for around a year, and I Will Never Let You Down was their first collaboration. But on 6 June, not long after the single debuted at number one, Calvin announced that he and Rita had "ended their relationship some time ago".
