All good things must come to an end and in Rita Ora’s case, the end comes sooner rather than later. She recently wrapped up her first season as host of “America’s Next Top Model” and, as it turns out, first also means last. Tyra Banks will be taking back the reigns next cycle for the show’s second season since making the switch over to VH1.

Rita Ora is celebrating the end of something special. Her fist season hosting VH1’s reincarnation of “America’s Next Top Model” came to a close on Wednesday night. India Gants was crowned the new season’s winner as Rita celebrated her victory on social media.
Rita posted a congratulations tweet for India and wrote she was “so proud” of all the contestants in the new season. She also spoke with Entertainment Weekly about what she felt like the show’s latest seasons changed and improved. “I feel like we accomplished a new outlook on what it takes to be a model in the modern world,” Rita said. “You can’t just be beautiful.”
“You have to be in control of how you’re portrayed and have a vision of who you want to be,” she continued. “Our current culture within this industry is no longer just about being beautiful and being able to walk. You have to be adaptable to everything: social media, businesses, working with brands, film, music.”
Rita implied that there will be a “next time” for her and the show, so it sounds like she’ll be back for another season.

Paris Fashion Week is winding down and while Kendall Jenner is already back in L.A. there’s still some fun to be had in the French capital. Gigi Hadid and Nick Jonas proved just that when they showed up in style at a V Magazine party, but they weren’t the only stars at the event.
Rita Ora was there, too, wearing a princess crown that looks like it was stolen from Bella Hadid. Stella Maxwell was also there sticking close to Barbara Palvin since, unfortunately, her regular date Kristen Stewart was in L.A.

Rita Ora is a busy girl. Between hosting the reboot of “America’s Next Top Model” and continuing to deny those “Becky with the good hair” accusations, she somehow find time to sing a little ditty with none other than Justin Bieber.
In a video on her Instagram account, Justin plays piano while Rita sings “All My Life,” the classic ’90s R&B track from K-Ci and JoJo. The duo sounds pretty good together. Could they be making more beautiful music together in the future?
Justin and Rita have been romantically connected in the past, and they certainly seem friendly in the clip. A professional collaboration could be another step in their relationship.
Hear the collaboration below.

“Fifty Shades Darker” premiered on Thursday night and was attended by both the cast of the film as well as some of the artists featured on the soundtrack. Halsey, Zayn and Noah Cyrus were all present to celebrate the film’s February 10th release at The Theatre at Ace Hotel in Los Angeles.
As Zayn partied with Rita Ora all night, girlfriend Gigi Hadid was left at home singing the lyrics to “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever.”
