Ora: Working with Prince 'an honour'

Rita Ora has been working with Prince for her new album.

Rita Ora has been working with Prince for her new album.

The singer was in awe of the iconic pop star and revealed they have "done some music together".

She told The Sun newspaper: "I have met him and I have had the honour of being in the same studio as him.

"We messed around with some music and you know, I can't believe he can play so many instruments.

"All I can say is that we've definitely done some music together."

The 'How We Do (Party)' singer is working hard on her follow-up to 2012 debut 'Ora' and has also teamed up with her DJ boyfriend Calvin Harris and Gwen Stefani.

There will be a heavy "pop" influence on the record, but Rita has promised she has written "a lot of revealing" tracks for the new album.

She added: "I love pop music and I'm a pop singer, so it's just pop music with a lot more honesty in it.

"There are a lot of revealing lyrics in there."

Fans might not have to wait long to hear the new full length after she revealed she's almost finished the album.

She said: "It's so good, it's literally done. I've got a few things I want to tweak and then I'm done."

Britney Spears says the best way to "get over" an ex-boyfriend is to quickly find a new man.

The singer - who split up with Jason Trawick in January after around three years together - is now dating David Lucado and revealed her tips for mending a broken heart.

Britney, filling in for Ryan Seacrest as guest host of radio's 'American Top 40' show, joked: "Just get another guy really quick! I think if you get another boyfriend it's really easy to get over it."

While her initial reply to a fan's question was slightly tongue-in-cheek, the 'Work B***h' hitmaker did add that a group of friends there for support was also a good idea.

She said: "But for real, I think you need a lot of friends around you and you need to go to the movies and have dinner dates with your girlfriends. Yeah, I think that's important."

Britney previously revealed she did move on from Jason quickly, and it helped inspired her new album 'Britney Jean'.

She recently explained: "It was very therapeutic, yeah. I got over it really fast. Basically, what [the tracks are] talking about, your love is gone [but] you'll never forget it.

"The time goes by and time heals, and all those wonderful beautiful breakup things that you say."
