Rita Ora Picked Her Poison and It's Who?

Rita Ora, the physical embodiment of the phrase “bigger in Europe,” released the video for her new single “Poison” today. The track is as enjoyable as all of Rita’s other singles—it’s the kind of pop ballad I’d listen to more often if I had a car—but the video is little more than a Frizz Ease® commercial wrapped in a… »6/03/15 11:55pm6/03/15 11:55pm
