Calvin Harris's girlfriend is signed to Jay-Z's Roc Nation label
The singer is signed to Bey’s hubby Jay-Z‘s record label Roc Nation and she’s become close to the superstar couple, who she calls ‘my family’.
But the business side of the relationship makes Rita feel a bit confused.
‘Beyoncé is this massive star, but she’s incredibly humble,’ says Rita, 22.
‘But it’s weird because even though I love her, she’s my boss’s wife.’
Rita, who is dating DJ Calvin Harris, admits she was approached by Jay’s people completely out of the blue.
‘I was in Boots buying contact lens solution and my mobile went off,’ the Radioactive singer tells Event Magazine.
‘It was Jay-Z’s partner at Roc Nation asking me what I was up to. He asked if I’d been to America and I said, “No.” Then he said, “I’m putting you on a flight to New York tomorrow.”
‘I practically had a nervous breakdown when I arrived in New York because I was being taken straight to the Roc Nation Christmas party.
‘I was wearing an old T-shirt and leggings. I had barely any make-up on. I was unbelievably nervous, especially when this big crowd parted and I was face to face with Jay-Z.’
