Rita Ora‘s latest bikini look was pushing some boundaries. Then again, the 31-year-old singer managed to pull it off. Rita updated her Instagram over the weekend with a red-hot photo of herself soaking up the sun, although the minimal nature of the swimwear didn’t take long to get picked up on by media outlets.
The sun-drenched and poolside snap likely reassured the “Let You Love Me” singer’s fans, though – anyone familiar with Rita’s recent headline-making will know that she recently underwent a tonsillectomy.
Rita’s photo showed her chilling on a sunny lawn and sitting on cushioned seating. The star was flaunting her sizzling bikini body in a two-piece that was definitely tiny – the black string swimwear was itty-bitty at best, affording a sensational view of the beauty’s cleavage. With a bikini top that seemed too small, Rita’s assets were definitely making a show.
That said, the photo also checked boxes for showing off the songstress’ flat stomach, toned legs, and sensational tan. Rita posed with one hand shielding her eyes from the sun, also showcasing her natural beauty.
A caption from Rita came with some uplifting words.
“Enjoy your life. Please. Protect your heart and be proud of YOU,” she wrote.
A Los Angeles, California geo-tag was also used.
As to the fans, they seemed a touch distracted.
“Yes boddddy,” wrote model Sofia Richie.
“Ok body,” another said.
Then again, some comments acknowledged the star’s recent surgery – “Looks like you didn’t need the tonsils” was one such one.
The die-hard fans also showed their faces.
“proud to call YOU my role model. i love you so much,” one fan wrote.
Rita is currently recovering from having had her tonsils removed. A lengthy caption accompanied the star’s Valentine’s Day run-up post.
“So these past 2 weeks I under went a Tonsillectomy and let me tell you, it’s no joke,” Ora wrote.
“It’s SO painful, but on the plus side it’s given me time to reflect relax and heal. It’s a blessing to be able to heal in peace and put everything into perspective and visualise the rest of your year and what’s coming or what you want to achieve,” she added.
Rita was among the many celebrities paying tribute to former “Love Island” host Caroline Flack – the 40-year-old tragically committed suicide just a few days ago.
Rita posted a black-and-white photo of herself with Flack, sending thoughts in her caption.
“Caroline you were a true light to everyone you met I can still hear you laugh right now, everyone knew it’s was your laugh! Oh here’s Flackie! I was blessed to call you a friend. I hope your death is not in vain and a lesson is learnt today. Let’s put a stop to public humiliation, shaming and bullying from the media. Let’s stop targeting young people. Let’s stand together and use social media more responsibly. Let’s think before we type. Please look around you to see which of your friends/family needs support. Lots of love to Caroline Flack and her family and friends during this tragic time.❤️”
