Rita Ora doesn’t have heat on her side right now – the Kosovo-born and U.K.-based singer is in a country that barely hit 65 degrees today. Still, the “queen of underboob” and hit songstress knows how to heat it up. Rita stripped down to a racy animal-print bikini from her British lock-down ahead of the weekend. The “How To Be Lonely” singer had also brought along a frozen snack, with her smoking bikini body doing a good job of melting it.
And Instagram isn’t complaining. Scroll for Rita’s popsicle photo, with the shot following Rita’s May 19 bikini – that snap currently sits at over 750,000 likes, also getting the thumbs-up from 22-year-old actress Bella Thorne. The photo showed Rita in a sun-drenched backyard and flaunting her summer body in a teeny tiny zebra-print bikini, with the rock-hard abs and cleavage alive and well as Rita treated herself to a watermelon popsicle seen in her mouth. Shades atop the blonde’s head added summer vibes, with a fun watermelon emoji shouting out the fruity theme.
April saw Rita make headlines for leaving locals “furious” as her quarantine squad deal – complete with gal pals – turned ugly. A farmer is said to have “shouted” at the star’s posse after they entered private land, although that’s something Rita has plenty of as she social distances from an old-fashioned farmhouse in the upscale Cotsworlds region. “I’ve been lucky enough to be surrounded by the English countryside. I don’t usually have the chance to spend too long in one place at one time, so I’m really soaking it in,” she told Vogue.
Rita joins the slew of celebrities now taking to Instagram to mark the murder of 46-year-old black man George Floyd – despite saying: “Please, I can’t breathe” as a former white police officer kneeled on his neck for over eight minutes, Floyd’s plea was ignored and he died. Rita posted a “TIME” magazine cover showing 1968 riots on Friday, with the date crossed out for 1968 and 2015 – 2020 was in red. “There comes a time when silence is betrayal,” she wrote, quoting Martin Luther King Jr. Scroll for her sheer lingerie look.
Rita, who has 16.2 million followers, has proven one of the celebrity world’s biggest sun worshippers amid COVID-19. Those backyard farmhouse snaps have been steady, with Rita invariably going skimpy in cleavage-flashing looks as she soaks up the British sun. Indoor time has, however, been mentioned, with Rita telling Vogue that she’s been spending time in the studio: “The studio is my safe haven. I’m very lucky to have space to create and make music in isolation,” she told the magazine.
