Rita Ora Talks Attending Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour With Katy Perry


Rita Ora had an enchanting Eras Tour experience. The 33-year-old songstress opened up about attending Taylor Swift‘s concert along with her husband, Taika Waititi, and pal Katy Perry in Sydney, Australia, earlier this year

“The pop girls have really come together on that one,” she joked during an appearance on Tuesday episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.  

Calling Perry “my buddy,” Ora said that the duo both happened to be working down under on separate gigs at the same time. 

“Obviously everyone in the world has seen the Eras Tour, so I went,” she joked. “So I went, obviously, and really wanted to just hang out. And I saw Katy.”

Ora and Perry were photographed having a chat in the VIP tent during Swift’s performance on Feb. 23 at Accor Stadium. Also on hand was Swift’s boyfriend, Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, as well as Aussie natives Toni Collette and Baz Luhrmann

“It was so crazy because I guess when there’s multiple people together, it almost amplifies, like, the energy,” Ora admitted on The Tonight Show.

She added with a laugh, “Then you walk around thinking you’re bigger than you actually are.”

Following the show, Ora took to her Instagram account to share a series of snapshots from the festivities. In one, she and Waititi pose backstage with Swift. In another, she playfully shows off an arm full of friendship bracelets. 

The “Let You Love Me” singer also shared pics alongside Perry and Kelce. 

“It’s fair to say Sydney always delivers – Or shall we say our TayTay @taylorswift always delivers!” she captioned her post. “Thank you for having us! Seeing my KP @katyperry made my heart 🥹 [too] many queens to count!” 

At the time, Perry’s appearance made headlines due to her complex shared history with the “I Can Do It With a Broken Heart” singer. Perry even poked fun at the duo’s past drama, sharing a video of herself making a shocked face as she sang along to “Bad Blood” — Swift’s blistering 2014 anthem rumored to have been written about her. 

During her late night appearance, Ora shouted out Perry’s own return to music. The “I Kissed a Girl” singer is set to drop a new song, “Woman’s World,” on July 11. 

“It was the first time I’ve seen her in ages,” Ora said of their Eras reunion. “She’s putting out music and, you know, everyone’s just doing their thing.” 

For her part, Ora just dropped her new single — “Ask & You Shall Receive” — and is currently promoting her role as the iconic Queen of Hearts in the upcoming Disney musical, Descendants: The Rise of Red

The film will hit Disney+ on July 12.
