Rita Ora - Rita Ora coached by Naomi Campbell

Rita Ora was coached by Naomi Campbell at Milan Fashion Week.

The 'I Will Never Let You Down' singer ran into the iconic supermodel at the European catwalk event, and says she helped give her confidence when her insecurities and nerves were getting the better of her.

She told Paper magazine: ''Yeah, me and Naomi Campbell are like best friends ... No, I'm joking. She's so cute. She was looking after me at the [Philipp Plein] show. I was really nervous because I felt fat - everyone was so skinny and tall.

''So she gave me a pep talk and walked me in. Then we ended up having drinks by the bar and she was being really cool.''

As well as hanging out with Naomi, Rita says Jay Z - who signed her to his Roc Nation label - has become like a ''brother'' to her during the making of her second album.

She added: ''When I met him I was 17, and I am 23 now, so he's watched me grow and now it's about me having my own opinion and making my own decisions, which he understands.

''It's more of a brother/sister relationship really. He really cares about me and it's nice to see a boss who also really wants you to succeed and he's really doing everything in his power to make this perfect.''

Rita has also recorded four tracks with her boyfriend, superstar DJ Calvin Harris. for the album, and admits she was a little shy about working with her lover at first.

She said: ''I got a little bit shy during our first musical bonding because he's seen me in everything else but he hadn't seen me in my work mode.''
