Rita Ora leaves Playboy’s 60th Anniversary Party at the Playboy Club in London on December 3, 2013. The bash was co-hosted by Kate Moss and Marc Jacobs
*British singer-songwriter Rita Ora, who signed with Jay Z’s Roc Nation in December 2009, within 48 hours of her arrival in the United States, has been cast in Universal‘s adaptation of E L James’ mega-selling novel Fifty Shades Of Grey.
The Kosovo-born artist will play Mia, the outgoing adopted sister of bondage-loving billionaire Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan).
Dakota Johnson stars as Anastasia Steele. Also in the cast are Eloise Mumford as Kate, Anastasia’s best friend and roommate; Luke Grimes as Elliot, Christian’s brother; Victor Rasuk as José, Anastasia’s close friend; Jennifer Ehle as Anastasia’s mother, Carla; and Max Martini as Jason Taylor, Christian’s bodyguard and head of his security team.
Last month Universal moved the film’s release date from August 1, 2014, to Valentine’s weekend 2015.
Ora was last on the big screen in a cameo for “Fast & Furious 6.”
*Nicki Minaj’s S&M Halloween outfit looked like something out of “50 Shades of Grey,” but it was one of the rapper’s “regular” outfits that inspired the costume worn by talk show host Ellen DeGeneres on her Halloween show.
Nicki posted to Instagram a series of selfies in her barely-there costume that had fans saying, “Damn!!!” She teased them at first with a shot of some stiletto-heeled vinyl boots draped in handcuffs, asking, “U ready?”
A few hours later she did the big reveal – sporting electrical tape and a studded leather harness up top and a leather thong, fishnets and thigh-high patent vinyl boots.
Meanwhile, Ellen chose to dress up in the outfit Minaj wore on her show recently – a reverse-cleavage bearing outfit, with the bottom of her boobs exposed instead of the top.
And of course, because it’s Ellen, she had to take it to another level. Watch below.
