Rita Ora on America’s Next Top Model’s Reboot
In her interview, Rita talks about the ‘America’s Next Top Model’ reboot. The show is now at VH1 and features an all new judging panel. “I don’t think just taking a photo is enough anymore,” she says about modeling. “We focus on how you’re going to create a fan base on social media, how you’re going to make people want to imitate you. That for me is the difference between somebody who’s just a regular model and somebody who’s a superstar.
“I’m lucky to have friends in this industry, and I thought maybe if I call them and we create a credible panel and give a different perspective of America’s Next Top Model, I could actually be the host,” she continues. “I’m not here to tell them what to do. I’m here to show them that they can do this, too. I’m an example of what you can achieve because it’s worked.”
