Rita Ora: Taylor Swift is incredible

Rita Ora thinks Taylor Swift is "incredible".

The 'Poison' singer loves Taylor as an artist and for what she "stands for" as a person and is constantly in awe of the hit singles she's able to write.

Speaking to website Noisey, she said: "I think she's one of the most incredible songwriters of our generation. I'm not even just saying it. I absolutely adore her music and love what she stands for."

Her support for the 'Shake It Off' singer may come as a surprise to some as Taylor is now dating Rita's ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris.

But Rita believes all women in the music business should support each other and she makes it her mission to publicly praise her pop peers.

The 24-year-old beauty was taught by her mother to go through life having respect for other people and it's a lesson she has never forgotten and it's a message she wants to spread.

Rita - who is getting ready to release her next album - revealed: "You pay respect to people who deserve it - Beyoncé and Madonna. When Madonna was going through it on this last record, I was one of the first people to post my support on Instagram. Don't battle her because of her age. I'm a girl's girl, I support women and it comes back to you. I'd love that support. There's a fine line between believing in yourself and being a f***ing arsehole. I don't step on people's toes ... I learned this from my mum: pay respect to people, be appreciative and believe in yourself because nobody else will until you do it first."
