Rita Ora covers the latest issue of Glamour UK, opening up to the magazine about a number of personal issues.

Foremost among them: her split from Calvin Harris. Did they really end because of Justin Bieber?

Ora did not address that question, but she did say why she Tweeted news about the break-up.

“Honestly, if Calvin hadn’t done it, I wouldn’t have done it,” said the singer. “It took me five days to write three sentences. It was a massive…I don’t know. We both work really hard. We’re both all over the place.

“And I’d always denied it, always said, ‘If you really want something, you’ll do it!’ When I go for something, I go in 100 percent. So it was a wake up call.”

And how is Ora, who also dated Rob Kardashian for a number of months, handling single life at the moment?

“I’m not doing too great. But I’m doing better than I thought. I adore him and he’s such an amazing human being. It was more about the situation. It was inconvenient. It sucks. It wasn’t about ‘us.’ It was about the world we live in.”

That’s sad, mysterious and ominous.

Fortunately, Ora has best friends Ellie Goulding and Cara Delevingne to help get her through.

Gushes the artist about these pals: “Only a few people in this industry stick by their word and those girls do. It’s a pact. I can smell the difference.”
