Rita Ora has no plans to reveal song inspirations

  Rita Ora has no plans to reveal song inspirations Rita Ora is keeping the inspiration for her new songs under wraps. The R.I.P singer has recently completed her long-delayed second album after legal issues with her former management company, JAY-Z's management company Roc Nation, and a tussle with her ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris over now-canned songs they'd recorded together. Set for a November (17) release, Rita gave a little insight into what her fans can expect from her new material during an interview with the London Evening Standard, explaining that the lyrics reference personal stories. But she also warned she wouldn't be sharing details of who the songs are actually about. “Kate Moss told me something amazing - never complain, never explain,” she told the British newspaper. “She’s a legend. That’s great advice. I want my lyrics to be open to interpretation." Rita, 26, has been re-energised since moving back to London, which she noted gave her the right type of energy she needed to write the currently untitled album, made her remember her real accent and gave her her "sass" back. One common theme on the new album the Hot Right Now singer was prepared to talk about is love. Rita has dated a string of famous suitors, including Rob Kardashian, Ricky Hilfiger, Bruno Mars and A$AP Rocky among others. However, she has been single since her split from Ricky in July 2015. "I’m always looking for love. But I’m definitely distracted by about 150 different things. People forget that I’m still a 26-year-old girl, so I just sing about what I aspire to have," she smiled. “So we wrote about stuff like that - a new start, a new page, love and how good that feels and having the chance to really start again. I learned about getting in tune with my vulnerable side, and that it’s OK.

Around seven in 10 Britons could be putting themselves at risk of being scammed by sharing personal details such as their name, address and date of birth without checking the legitimacy of enticing competitions and offers, a survey suggests.

Only 31% of people will routinely check the validity of a promotion, while the remaining 69% could potentially be putting themselves at risk, the research among 2,000 people for Nationwide Building Society found.

More than a third (38%) of people across the survey said they have ended up regretting giving their personal information out.

Stuart Skinner, director of fraud at Nationwide Building Society, said: "As our research shows, Brits are much more willing to take a risk with their personal information if they think there is a bargain to be had.

"It's very easy to be swept away with the prize on offer and not stop to think whether it is valid. Our advice is, if something seems too good to be true, it usually is, so it's wise to be suspicious."

Nationwide offers the following hints and tips to watch out for fraudsters:

:: Protect your personal details just like you protect your home and valued possessions.

:: Don't assume an email, text or phone call is genuine - you can always ring back on a known number.

:: Do not share Pins, passwords or card reader passcodes and do not send money out of your account for "safekeeping".
