When it comes down to it, celebs are just like us and get star struck, too. Roc Nation songstress Rita Ora won “Best Newcomer” at the MOBO Awards in Liverpool, England over the weekend and it came with a special treat. The 21-year-old blonde bombshell was finally able to meet her idol, Gwen Stefani. Previously, the “R.I.P.” singer performed on “The X Factor” U.K., sharing the bill with No Doubt. Ora has made it well known that she has admired Stefani her entire life and cites Gwen as a major influence in her fashion choices.
Rita snagged a photo with her idol and took to twitter to reflect on the experience. She tweeted: “I woke up this morning thinking wow I actually met the person I looked up to all my life. Have you guys ever met the people who inspired you?”
Watch Rita perform her new single “Shine Ya Light” in the video below.
