Rita Ora

Rita Ora is looking forward to an "amazing" 2013.

The 'R.I.P.' hitmaker is excited about a number of musical projects she has in the pipeline and can't wait to get back on the road next year.

She said: "I can't wait to have another amazing year. I'm doing a tour, writing a new album and I've got a few collaborations. I won't give them away, but they're great."

Rita admits she has "tested" herself in 2012 but thinks all her hard work paid off.

She said: "I don't think I've ever achieved as much in a year as I have in 2012.

"Emotionally and physically, I really tested myself but it's paid off. I've had three number one singles travelled the world and met my idol, Gwen Stefani."

While she has propelled into the public eye this year, Rita recently insisted she will never complain about the attention.

She said: "If you want to do my job, you have to suck it up, because it goes hand-in-hand with what you're doing. At the end of the day, the media are helping you - they're what you need.

"You can turn around and punch a paparazzo in the face, or you can keep moving and let them get the shot, but that's not what you should be worried about. The main concern should be getting respect for your music."
