Jade Ewen has hit back at Rita Ora on Twitter in sensational style following the singer’s comments about her career, saying: “some people sleep their way to the success, some have morals.”
The row began after Ora seemingly had a dig about Jade in a recent interview.
During said chat the star said she was “glad” she didn’t eventually enter the Eurovision Song Contest in the end, as at 16 she’d initially auditioned for Andrew Lloyd Webber on the show “Eurovision: Your Country Needs You!” but she quit before finding out if she’d made the final cut.
“I was 16. Andrew Lloyd Webber was there. Right from the start I was, like, ‘What am I doing here?’ said Rita.
“I did my song and walked out. No-one knew what to do. They started looking for me, calling my agent.”
“Imagine! If I’d stayed, it would probably have been all over for me. At best, I’d be a contestant on that diving show…?’ Splash!? Yeah, Splash! I love that show.”
As you all know, before Sugababes Jade won “Eurovision: Your Country Needs You!” and went onto sing for the UK at the contest but didn’t win. She then subsequently went on to appear in the Tom Daley fronted reality show ‘Splash!’ recently.
Though Rita didn’t specifically cite Jade’s name, it’s pretty obvious her remarks were aimed at her and it seems as though the Sugababe caught wind of the interview so took to Twitter to say:
“Easy to mock when you are enjoying success. Eurovision and splash? Proud of both Some manage to sleep their way to success some have morals.”
She added: “#justsayin”
One thing’s for sure, Rita certainly isn’t the kind of girl to take this kind of thing lying down so it’s over to her really…
