For Rita Ora, social media has brought an end to the mystery surrounding modern celebrities.
The “Anywhere” singer, who has 16 million followers on Instagram, spoke about the growing popularity of platforms like Instagram, Twitter, and TikTok in recent years. She feels that stars no longer have privacy because fans already know so much about them.
“I think the mystery is over,” she told The Telegraph. You don’t see huge groups of people crying when a famous person gets in a car, like you see footage of The Beatles getting off an airplane.”
The 32-year-old star is no stranger to social media or what she laments about. She herself regularly shares behind-the-scenes photos from her appearances at events and posts about her music, including her new album “You & I,” which is set for release on July 14. The British star, who has 2.6 million followers on her TikTok account, admits she feels pressured to provide a glimpse into her life with her fans.
“Now people can see what you do all the time. You have Instagram and TikTok, and it’s up to you how much you share, but if you’re not logged in, people are like, ‘Who do you think you are?'” adds Rita Ora.
“Total coffee aficionado. Travel buff. Music ninja. Bacon nerd. Beeraholic.”
